About this property

North facing, vacant, single level and located away from all roads

If you are looking for trendy Inner City living, but need more space, then this 'Forum' apartment is a standout with a generous 122m2 of total space on offer. 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.

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.

Attention investors – early access is also available to your property manager so tenants can view the unit and be pre signed prior to settlement.

Attention live in owners – want early access prior to settlement and a guaranteed move in date? Well good news, we can make that happen. Your next chapter is calling your name & having a home sweet home to call your own is the best present you could buy. This apartment makes living cool, calm & care-free and with vacant possession and early access on offer you could be unlocking your new front door sooner than you think.
