    Fabulous City Centre Investment or First Home Opportunity

    There’s city life with all the negotiations around traffic snarls, finding parking, queuing for shopping or café seating with everyone else during peak hours or there’s the calm and convenience of inner-city life.

    Situated in the heart of Canberra City, this two bedroom, one bathroom, super-convenient apartment offers first home buyers, investors, weekday workers or parents with student teenagers heading to ACT universities a fantastic opportunity to secure a safe apartment with 24-hour concierge service. Within walking distance of all amenities and public transport, there’s no need for a car to get around every day, but there is a secure parking space and storage cage.

    The apartment has an open plan living and dining area, with a useful adjacent wide nook that would make a terrific study or meals area. The fully equipped, very functional kitchen has hard-wearing marble-look bench tops, plenty of storage cabinets, dishwasher and stainless steel appliances. Both the bedrooms are generously sized with built-in wardrobes and the two-way bathroom comes complete with a shower over the bath, allowing for soaking in the tub to warm up after one of Canberra’s (many) cold winter days. An internal laundry and reverse cycle air conditioning are additional benefits.

    The building’s amenities include an indoor pool and gym, rooftop spa and sauna, barbecue facilities, table tennis area and half tennis court. In addition, the apartment is just a stroll away from the vibrant City precinct with its shopping centres, cafes, restaurants, cinema, gyms, bars, Canberra Theatre, night clubs, the Casino – the list goes on. Public Service offices including the ATO and DVA, the ACT Legislative Assembly and private sector offices are all within walking distance.

    This is the perfect rental property that’s also ideal for weekday workers, executives, or a Canberra base for travelling downsizers to let on a short-term basis when away for a few months. It is an easy set and forget addition to any portfolio with the 24 hour concierge and original commercial-strength build as an hotel making any security or building concerns less likely. This property has proved to be a solid and reliable investment for a number of years.

    Equally, the apartment presents as a opportunity to get a foothold into the real estate market, in the middle of a capital city. Location and lifestyle are on offer for first home buyers here, with all the benefits of city living at the doorstep. No need to queue for cafes or shopping in peak hour when you live here, just go when you like. Be sure to inspect.
