About this property

Single level, North facing plan away from any roads

Good news for buyers!
In-person inspections can now take place from Saturday 18th September.
Please note, these inspections can only offered to qualified buyers only who have pre-approved finances and are ready, willing and able to purchase now.
The 1st step is to request the digital brochure via email which will contain the full marketing contract including building and pest reports and once you have reviewed this, if you wish to then book a private showing please reply to the email we send you and we will allocate you a 15 min viewing slot in the coming days. A maximum of two members from the same household can attend.

If you are looking for trendy Inner City living, but need more space, then this 'Forum' apartment is a standout with a generous 93m2 of living. The direct North aspect for both bedrooms and the living areas capture an abundance of light. Surprisingly peaceful & private even though you are in the heart of the City, you will not see let alone hear any traffic noise which might surprise you.

This development is located just a short walk from the heart of the City & an even shorter stroll from the picturesque Commonwealth Park. Enjoy a morning walk or bike around the lake, then leave the car at home & walk or scooter to work or the Canberra Centre for some shopping or a lazy Sunday brunch. Relax when you get back home on your 15m2 fully covered balcony.

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 for exercise or just take a dip to cool off and have fun with the kids.

Currently tenanted by a dream tenant with vacant possession on 18th December 2021, we can either facilitate a longer settlement to coincide with it being vacant to give plenty of time to sort out your finances or if you would prefer to settle with the tenant in place then that's totally fine too.
