About this property

Unique, tri-level, Inner City apartment

If you are looking for trendy Inner City living with something different to offer, this tri-level apartment is a standout. This spacious 85m² apartment is much larger than most & is split over 3 distinct levels creating high ceilings in the living area with impressive floor to ceiling windows which welcome in an abundance of sunshine and fresh air. The outlook from the living areas is to the enclosed private courtyard accessed by double cedar French doors to a very generous 65m2 zone which is a beautiful, light & airy place to relax.

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.
