About this property

Spacious, tri-level, Inner City apartment

Looking for space in the middle of the City? Then this standout, tri-level inner-city apartment is exactly what you've been looking for and at 85m² apartment is much larger than most & delightfully split over 3 distinct levels. Discover high ceilings in the living area with impressive floor to ceiling windows which welcome in an abundance of sunshine and fresh air. No tiny balcony here, the outlook from the living areas is to an enclosed and very generous 65m2 private courtyard accessed by double cedar French doors. Complete with gorgeous mature trees providing year-round colour, this delightful courtyard creates a beautiful, light & airy place to relax or entertain friends and family.

The Forum development is a mere 5-minute walk from the heart of the City and Braddon & an even shorter stroll to 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 in vibrant Braddon.

Further benefits include watching fireworks over Lake Burley Griffin or a barbecue on the rooftop terrace or simply just taking in the lights of the City & the lake views. Say goodbye to expensive gym fees! You'll have access to a fully equipped gym that has everything you need for a great workout, including aerobic equipment, pin-loaded machines and free weights. Plus, if you're a fan of swimming, the Civic pool & gym is located conveniently just across the road.

Benefits for investors – early access is also available to your property manager so tenants can view the unit and be pre-signed prior to settlement meaning no vacancy and an income stream from day 1.

Benefits for live in owners – want early access prior to settlement and a guaranteed move in date? Well good news, we can make that happen so you can be living in your new home sooner.

Your next chapter is calling your name & this amazing apartment provides for an ideal Inner-City lifestyle and a lot more space (internally and externally) than you will be used to seeing in a 'standard' 1 bedroom unit.
