About this property

Elevated Northerly views to Mt Ainslie - Guide price from $850,000

There's no doubt that Barton's leafy green streets are the epitome of Inner South living in Canberra. But when you get to overlook them from the sixth floor of a luxury apartment building, you're living on a whole new level, literally. This home at 27/5 Sydney Avenue is everything you could ask for in an apartment. A North and East aspect corner position, open on 2 sides, makes the most of the sunshine and fills the living areas with light. It's especially enjoyable in cooler months when you can soak in the warmth from the L-shaped balcony with a breakout space ideal for a dining table or an outdoor lounge.

Inside, the well-considered and over-sized floorplan offers segregated bedrooms, entry foyer, & distinct living & dining zones. The luxe kitchen with Miele appliances overlooks the living spaces and is equipped with everything the modern chef needs including a built-in microwave and dishwasher, an induction cooktop, electric oven and stone bench tops with feature timber cabinetry.

Both bedrooms are generous in size and the bathrooms are reminiscent of some of the best full-sized homes in the inner south, especially in their stature. The main bedroom's ensuite is so large it fits a full-sized spa bath as well as a corner shower, large vanity with mirrored storage cabinetry above. It sits adjacent to the walk-in-robe with custom cabinetry and shelving. Unlike some of its counterparts, this apartment also has a full-sized separate laundry with benchtops, tub, space for a washing machine and a dryer which comes with the sale of the home.

While up here you're living in quiet bliss, but all you need to do is venture downstairs to enjoy some excitement on your doorstep. Barista made morning coffees can be purchased from Maple and Clove which is situated at the bottom of the building. Friday after work drinks are well spent at Ostani Bar which is Part of Hotel Realm and is located just across the road. On weekends, you're but a short walk from Kingston, the Foreshore and Manuka.
