Marian @ Manuka - 8/55 Franklin Street - 2 bedroom


Enjoy modern living in the tranquil surrounds of the historic St. Christopher's Cathedral.

An exciting, yet serene lifestyle awaits active, independent and discerning buyers aged 55 and over who will enjoy as much privacy as they desire or the opportunity to immerse themselves into the Marian community.

Secure basement parking adds to the ease of living on Manuka's doorstep.

While Independent Living Units are generally designed for an aging population, Marian Place Manuka respects that the 55 plus population has a lot of living to do, and as such has developed a new dimension in independent living accommodation in one of Canberra's most prestigious locations.

Each apartment has been finished to the highest standard with fixtures and fittings specifically chosen to complement the architecture.

With its origin in the 1920's, Manuka is a favourite location for entertainment, dining and shopping, or just a coffee or two with family and friends.

Home to Canberra's largest church, St Christopher's Cathedral, Manuka also boasts an extensive range of boutique shops, a popular cinema, and one of Australia's most beautiful sporting ovals.

And when you consider the national capital's only urban waterside community, the Kingston Foreshore, is just a short walk away, you'll understand why this address is the perfect start to the next phase of your life.

The 44 architecturally designed apartments based on one, two and three bedroom floor plans reflect their idyllic location.

Each apartment is inspired by thoughtful attention to the finest details in harmony with the charming surrounds of leafy Manuka.

Marian Place Manuka residents will have access from Franklin Street and Canberra Avenue, allowing foot traffic to flow around the Cathedral for the first time since it was opened in 1939.
