About this property

Elevated, tree-top outlook over Allara Street

If you are looking for trendy Inner City living, this spacious, single level, 65m2 of living unit is bigger than most & the full length cedar framed windows and doors frame its private outlook.

The popular 'Forum' development is surprisingly peaceful despite being located just a short walk from the heart of the City & an even shorter stroll from the picturesque Commonwealth Park. Relax on your fully covered balcony, which enjoys an easterly aspect, away from any neighbours looking in. Enjoy a morning walk around the lake, then leave the car at home & walk to work or visit 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 this summer.

Currently vacant, its available for immediate occupation, however, if you need longer settlement options this may be able to be facilitated. At this price bracket you will want to move quickly to view and submit an offer, the last 1br units we sold recently in the Forum development did not last long at all.

Please note, private inspections can only be offered to qualified buyers who have pre-approved finances in place 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 and once you have reviewed this, if you wish to then book a private showing please reply to the email we send you with a preferred day/time and we will allocate you a 15 min viewing slot in the coming days.
