Rare opportunity to buy into a low-rise boutique complex on the edge of Braddon and Ainslie. Located in a cul-de-sac, this feels like a home, not an office building or hotel. One of only 7 apartments in a 2-storey building, this two-bedroom ensuite apartment is a 12-minute walk to Braddon's restaurants, an easy walk or bike ride to the city centre, close to ANU and under 5 minutes' walk to the Ipima Street light rail stop. Convenient access to everything, without the traffic, exhaust fumes and noise of inner-city living. Walking distance to Ainslie shops with local pub, excellent IGA and eateries.
Situated on the upper floor, the apartment has high ceilings and two large tiled balconies with full-length sliding doors and windows to take advantage of the northerly aspect. Enjoy the fresh air, adjust the light to suit with both vertical blinds and block-out curtains. Security screen doors allow the sliding doors to be left open on summer nights to catch the cool breezes. The open-plan kitchen and living areas are light, bright and airy with calming outlooks over green trees and native birdlife. Retractable balcony shades provide protection from the heat in summer while allowing sun and warmth into living areas during winter, heating up the tiled floors and warming the room. In summer, the tiled floors keep living areas cool. Reverse-cycle aircon/heating to living area and NBN connected.
The modern kitchen has plenty of cupboard space, large pantry, microwave shelf, Caesarstone benchtops and glass splashbacks, with ceramic cooktop, stainless steel oven and dishwasher.
Both bedrooms are carpeted, wardrobes upgraded with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and added shelving to master robe to maximise functionality.
