    Iconic Northbourne Lodge!

    Since 1961, the well-known and successful Northbourne Lodge has been continuously operating as Guest House accommodation.

    Providing friendly, short-term Bed and Breakfast accommodation over the decades, repeat clients were always welcomed back.

    Freshly decorated in 2022, and well presented, the established bed and breakfast, on a block of approximately 832 m2, is situated in the perfect location to refresh the tired traveller, on Northbourne Avenue and within a short walk of Dickson coffee shops, restaurants and a light rail stop!

    The character filled, mid-century building of double brick construction, offers spacious, fully furnished, light filled rooms with an old world atmosphere and provides multiple sitting rooms, plus 7 bedrooms and 7 ensuites.

    This is perfect to continue in its current capacity, or also ideal as a comfortable family residence offering space and options for the larger, blended or multi-generational family in the perfect location so close to Dickson!

    The owners are retiring and reluctantly selling this business.
    Bedrooms have been decorated in neutral white, with polished flooring on the lower level, carpet in excellent condition on the upper level, and all bedrooms offer an ensuite bathroom.

    The lounge features newly polished flooring, a reverse cycle air conditioner and ceiling fan.

    Along the hallway the kitchen offers an electric stove, microwave, fridge, bench space, a double sink and a washing machine.

    A rear door provides general access to the garden and three paved entertaining areas, spread out around the neatly landscaped garden.

    Ducted gas heating maintains warmth on the lower level, while ducted evaporative cooling is installed on the upper level.

    High ceilings are a standout feature on the light and airy upper level which offers accommodation in four generous bedrooms.

    Bedroom four on the upper level has a door to a private terrace with an outlook over Northbourne Avenue and golf course, while the largest, bedroom seven, faces north and has three wide windows with a garden outlook, an adjacent bathroom with an additional powder room.

    The large, level rear garden would allow for additional off street parking if needed, although there is ample parking along the Northbourne Avenue side street.

    Coffee, a fantastic choice of restaurants and cuisines, and all other major facilities in the Dickson hub, are only a short walk, together with the swimming pool, sports grounds and Yowani golf course.

    Light rail provides a smooth rapid trip into the City centre or Gungahlin Market Place.

    This unique building in a prime location, is fully furnished and ready to provide an enjoyable place to stay for a large family or may welcome guests.
