Amazing outdoor living space - Buyers price guide from $500,000

It's not often you come across a modern one-bedroom apartment that boasts proximity to the City and the quiet surrounds of nature. Here you're treated to both as this ground level abode is perfectly placed in everyway; located north facing at the rear of the complex plus on the outskirts of the inner city and just a few footsteps away & Haig Park and North Oval.

Great care has been taken to make the outdoors feel like an extension of the interiors with multiple entertaining spaces overlooked by surrounding established leafy trees that increase the private feeling atmosphere. Originally designed with an alfresco covered entertaining area the owner has added an additional pergola covered space to extend the outdoor area, protecting you from the elements.

From nine to five on the weekdays, you'll never be far from work (Braddon and the City are just an easy five minutes stroll away) however on weekends, the inside of the home is ready for whatever life throws at you. The modern kitchen makes meal-prep and gourmet cooking a breeze, it's fitted with stainless steel appliances and stone benchtops. The elongated living and dining space enjoys green, outdoor vistas and the oversized bedroom is there to catch you when you fall down each evening.

This very rare offering will be in hot demand so make an inspection a priority. Please see our notes regarding our friendly auction campaigns to help you become the purchaser of this lovely home.
