About this property

2 bed, 2 bath, 2 kitchen, 2 laundry, 2 balconies, 2 car spaces – 'Two' good an opportunity 'two' miss.

Situated on the 7th floor of the tightly-held Base 241 complex, sits this unique 'dual key' apartment with endless opportunity for the owner to reside or create an income stream. The dual key option allows for each unit to be separated and individually metered or it can also be used as a single residence with multiple living spaces. Think the perfect housemate layout, not too close for comfort if you're living with family, or complete separation if subletting out either residence while living in the other.

As you enter the main residence the streams of natural light paired with the bamboo hardwood flooring come together to give a warm and welcoming feel. The generously sized main bedroom complete with floor to ceiling, mirrored sliding door storage and double windows taking in the light and view from the north. Right next door there is a three-way bathroom featuring floor to ceiling tiling, stone vanity top with mirrored storage then a separate toilet room and a large shower room.

There is a large kitchen and living area where natural light floods through and sweeping, elevated views to the West give a tranquil vista over the surrounding suburb where height zoning restricts any redevelopment to 3 stories. The kitchen features a mobile island bench top allowing a flexible space to provide ample room for entertaining and open living. The living area flows seamlessly into a private covered outdoor terrace with uninterrupted views of Black Mountain and the Brindabellas.

Within this apartment is another entirely private living space, complete with bedroom, bathroom, laundry, kitchenette and private terrace area. This space is just as impressive as its neighbour and features its own separate entrance and the same amenities as the previous apartment throughout.

Every detail has been considered and executed with comfort, style and sophistication at the forefront and such a unique floorplan is not easy to find in the more standard Inner-City residences you may be used to seeing. Plus the roof top acts as an extension to your living spaces and provides the perfect spot to relax with friends and family on the weekends.
