About this property

Corner unit, penthouse living, 280 degree sweeping views

Perched up high & on the fringe of Lake Burley Griffin, this luxury, single level, 2-bedroom apartment takes advantage of its pristine position in the corner spot of 'Governor Place.' The penthouse location allows for panoramic views; light streams through the abundance of windows whilst offering a sense of peace away from the hustle & bustle. All located in the prestigious Parliamentary Circle location that's just moments from bars, restaurants, and the thriving Barton, Manuka and Kingston cultural precincts.

'Governor Place' is a premier development boasting high quality finishes throughout from the solid stone benchtops & soft close cabinetry in the kitchen to the expansive storage options complete with the owners' additional custom upgrades in both bedrooms, involving fold-out bed in bedroom 2, and wardrobe in the main room to open and improve the floor space within the main bedroom (totalling over $15,000). The apartment gives you the chance to experience a unique lifestyle of high end living perfectly balanced with a relaxed atmosphere so close to the water's edge.

The well-considered floorplan offers segregated bedrooms, entry foyer, & distinct living & dining zones plus a wraparound 33m2 balcony that can be accessed through the living spaces & main bedroom. The sophisticated interiors are owed to the award-winning Stewart Architecture Group and & the finer details of the apartment have to be seen to be truly appreciated. Elevate your standard of living, come & see for yourself.
