About this property

City living without the noise – tranquil reserve outlook

Buyers Price Guide: From $390,000

It's not often you come across a modern one-bedroom apartment that boasts proximity to the City and the quiet surrounds of nature. Here at #20 Ikona, you're treated to both as this ground level abode is perfectly placed on the outskirts of the inner city and directly neighbouring the wide-open Turner Parkland and North Oval, renowned for its earthy Autumnal colours.

From nine to five on the weekdays, you'll never be far from work (Braddon and the City are just an easy five minutes stroll away) and on the weekends you've got an alluring nature reserve calling your name from across the road. Get ready for whatever life throws at you each morning inside where a modern kitchen makes meal-prep and gourmet cooking a breeze. It's fitted with stainless steel appliances and stone benchtops, so you know you're not missing out on quality then the elongated living and dining space is there to catch you when you fall down each evening.

The bedroom features full height windows and sliding glass door access to the front terrace and courtyard ensuring your connection to nature is never lost while the 2-way bathroom keep both you and guests happy. Speaking of guests, you'll never have to worry about where they will park as the Ikona complex offers 7 secure basement visitor parks (along with one of your own) plus heaps of additional car parking directly across the road.

And just in case you needed something extra to sweeten the deal, Ikona comes complete with sprawling shared grounds where you can stretch your legs, let the dog off the leash, or just unwind in the peace and quiet. Currently vacant, it is available for immediate occupation.
