About this property

Elevated direct North aspect with tranquil vista - buyers price guide from $600,000

Imagine being able to walk everywhere from home… when your address is 77 Northbourne Avenue, walking is your new reality! Perched on level 5 this unit is located in arguably the most convenient location in the CBD within a short walk to the Canberra Centre, North Quarter, Braddon's café and food district, the light rail, Civic bus interchange, the ANU, Acton Precinct & much more – perfect for live in owners wanting a central location, or an ideal area for attracting tenants and associated strong rental yields if you are an investor.

Apartment #57 runs the width of the building, with the north-facing sun-drenched living areas and a generous covered balcony at one end, & two bedrooms located at the other end, down half a flight of stairs. This design gives the property a great cross flow ventilation and an abundance of natural light. It also cleverly provides for effective separation of the bedrooms from the living areas of the apartment. Both bedrooms include large sliding door, mirrored built in robes and both bathrooms have modern fittings with floor to ceiling tiling. Reverse cycle air conditioning is located in the living areas & the main bedroom for effective year-round temperature control.

'The Avenue' development has dual secure lift access from the basement and ground level. Residents also have the luxury of 2 swimming pools and BBQ facilities in the landscaped internal courtyard, a great spot for a weekend get together with family and friends. Don't have a car? Perhaps you are thinking about selling your current vehicle to save on parking, petrol, insurance etc? The location is so good that you can even rent out the car spaces for $140/week = $7,200 /yr - what could you do with that extra cash every year?

The property is currently vacant and thus available for immediate occupation. If you can't make the next open home or if you would like to arrange a private inspection, just contact us so we can get you through. Otherwise, the detailed walk-through video will act as your 24/7 tour guide showing you the unit, communal facilities and carparking from the comfort of your home.

For a copy of the digital brochure containing an explanation of our friendly auction campaign and the full contract, please send us an email from the web portal noting your full name and mobile number and it will be automatically sent to you.
