About this property

Elevated apartment on the corner with 28m2 terrace - vacant and available for immediate occupation

When you think of the ideal Inner North lifestyle, the picture doesn’t get much better than the one painted at 87/217 Northbourne Ave. On the 6th floor of this exciting development, which offers resort-style facilities, discover this modern, single level unit where staying home is always pleasant.

The ‘On Forbes’ development has a central courtyard with a contemporary private gym. On the ninth story there is a 1,500m2 rooftop deck with 360-degree views of the Inner North plus a barbeque & sitting area, surely the picture-perfect place to have a casual catch up with friends and family.

Getting to and from university, work or the numerous bars and restaurants is easy given the unit’s proximity to the City and transportation routes, a short walk or bike ride will get you everywhere you need. Otherwise the light rail stop is on your doorstep or perhaps the electric scooter is more your thing?

Weekends could be spent bouncing between the surrounding cafés for catch ups with friends, perusing the popular Haig Park markets or heading down to the Canberra Centre for some serious retail therapy. If you’d rather get amongst nature, you can venture to Lake Burley Griffin for a quintessential Canberra lake walk, or to Mount Ainslie for an equally classic Canberra hike.

And while staying home is easy given the quality of property on offer here, with the incredible amenity that surrounds this abode, you’ll constantly be drawn out.

However, you choose your experiences, life is good when it’s lived in a home like this. Currently vacant, it’s available for immediate occupation, so there need not be any delays to starting your new lifestyle.
