About this property

Spacious Top Floor Loft Apartment

If you are looking for trendy Inner City living, with something different to offer, this large loft apartment is a standout. Offering a spacious 68m2 of living, it is much bigger than most & is split over 2 distinct levels with ultra-high 5 metre ceilings in the living area & impressive floor to ceiling cedar framed windows which capture an abundance of light. Surprisingly peaceful & private even though you are in the heart of the City, this apartment has a great wow factor from the moment you step inside.

The popular 'Forum' development is located just a short walk from the heart of the City & an even shorter stroll from the picturesque Commonwealth Park. Relax on your balcony which enjoys private views away from any neighbouring windows. Enjoy a morning walk around the lake, then leave the car at home & walk to work or the Canberra Centre for some shopping or a lazy Sunday brunch.

The 'Forum' has many delights for you to make use of. Imagine enjoying a barbecue on the rooftop terrace & taking in the lights of the City & the lake views. If you are looking for a good workout, the fully equipped gym is at your disposal, complete with aerobic equipment, pin-loaded machines & free weights. The Civic pool & gym is also located directly across the road if you want to get some laps in or just take a dip to cool off.
