The outstanding feature of this unit at the award winning Nishi building, the one that is a constant delight to the owners and to the astonishment of visitors, is the panoramic view. This unbeatable view encompasses Lake Burley Griffin, the Captain Cook Waterjet, all the southside national institutions and beyond to the hills surrounding Canberra. The wide double balconies, with double-glazed, stacking doors, provide the ideal vantage points for the fireworks and the Balloon Festival.
Ranking a close second is the spaciousness and liveability of this unit. The combination of two units provides a 10 metre width and 157 m2 of single-level living that give an unparalleled feeling of spaciousness and provides more than twice the amount of storage space found in most 3-bed units. The kitchen, with its double sink and capacious island bench is more like that in a designer home than a home unit and is ideal for entertaining, with separate dining and lounge areas.
The main bedroom is well segregated, offering privacy and seclusion, and is serviced by a deluxe en-suite bathroom with a heated towel rail. The second bedroom has a second fold-down bed to optimise floor space. The third bedroom has been fitted out as a full service office with ample working space for two and with a stunning view across the Lake. An extra room is ideal for storage, accommodation for occasional visitors or, at the present time, as a music room.
Of equal importance is the unit's location on the 13th floor of the Nishi Residential building in the vibrant New Acton precinct. The building is home to the Palace Electric Cinema, source of an almost constant stream of film festivals, the hatted Monster restaurant and Max Brenner chocolate. A stroll down the award-winning Grand Staircase and into the New Acton precinct provides further opportunities for drinks and meals at A. Baker, Parlour Wine Room, Bicicletta, Mocan & Green Grout and the QT Hotel. Further facilities include the Nishi Gallery, Pilates, massage, hairdressing, a mini supermarket and a boutique bike shop. The ANU is just across the road and the heart of Civic just a 15 minute walk away. The free City Loop bus passes nearby at 10 minute intervals.
Additional comforts to complete this wonderful package include hydronic heating (hardly used due to thermal efficiency) and 3 well-located basement car spaces with 3 large lockable storage cages. Whether your love is entertaining, relaxing with a book while enjoying beautiful views or strolling around the lake, or living within walking distance of work, this exclusive lifestyle apartment is your ideal home in the heart of Canberra.
