About this property

Ground floor with generous courtyard – 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 3/217 Northbourne Ave. On the ground 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.

The unit features a generous main bedroom and second bedroom. The second bedroom can accommodate a queen bed which could also double as a multi-purpose room that can be tailored pending your lifestyle's requirements. If you're at university, it's a great dedicated study space. If you work full time and enjoy occasionally working from home, then this is the place to do it as it's able to be shut off from the rest of the abode. Perhaps it's a formal dining room or a theatre/gaming room, a library or meditation/yoga space, the choice is yours.

Getting to and from university or work is easy given the unit's proximity to the City and transportation routes, a short walk or bike ride will get you there. And while staying home is easy, with the incredible amenity that surrounds this property, you'll constantly be drawn out.

On a Friday evening, you may frequent Braddon's bustling streets for a post-work drink or perhaps dinner at one of its various incredible restaurants. Nothing is off the cards, from a casual pizza or pub feed to a refined contemporary Australian or Asian experience.

Weekends are well 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.

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 in the new year.
