If you’re the type of person who keeps a finger on the property market pulse, one district you’ve undeniably heard of is Molonglo Valley. Home to Coombs, Wright and Denman Prospect, the Molonglo Valley is Canberra’s newest and growing region of the moment, with plenty to offer first-home buyers and downsizers alike.
Nestled in the heart of this burgeoning area is a new apartments and townhouses project from developer Elevated Living, coming to Trinca Street in Denman Prospect.
Aptly named HighGround, this 52-home development is the most elevated site in Denman Prospect and is well-placed to suit a multitude of lifestyles.
Let’s start with the location. Denman Prospect may still be considered a new kid on the block, but it’s far better prepared than I ever was on my first day of school. The advantage of buying in a newly established suburb is that it’s literally been built for your convenience.
Designed with modern living in mind, Denman Prospect offers quick and easy access to nearby doctors, chemists, cafes, gyms, grocers and more, as well as parks and outdoor community spaces.
Looking beyond HighGround’s home base, we graduate to the broader Molonglo Valley region. It’s here you’ll find nature calling only a few minutes away from the HighGround development. There’s Stromlo Forest Park, the epic recreational sports facility and biking network, and the iconic National Arboretum, which offers easily one of Canberra’s best views and a roster of weekend activities.
With such spectacular surroundings, it is only natural that the HighGround development itself is built with views that embrace them. The one, two and three-bedroom townhouses and apartments have floor-to-ceiling windows that spill out onto private terraces, providing a front-row seat to Canberra’s rich seasonal changes.
“HighGround uniquely slopes to the north, which gives all north-facing dwellings the ability to enjoy great views and access natural light and sun in the winter months,” James Herbert of LJ Hooker Project Marketing says.
“Plus, the generous outdoor living spaces are perfect for summer barbecues and entertaining.”
The kitchens are fitted with Fisher & Paykel appliances. The bathrooms are beautifully appointed with full-height, hand-chosen tiles, wall-hung vanity units, and shower wall niches. The living spaces are designed to be low maintenance with a clean and classic aesthetic.
“Finishes such as custom kitchen and bathroom joinery, induction cooking, bespoke downlights, and heightened ceilings ensure the highest quality of living,’ says Herbert.
“The apartments are particularly well designed with full cross-flow ventilation, which is rare for apartments.”
This development may have a whopping 52 homes within it, but it has been cleverly designed to balance privacy with connectivity, with each dwelling separated by garden areas.
HighGround is set for completion in mid-2022.
