Located on the ground floor of the popular development ‘The Crest', this stunning apartment has been superbly renovated with a theme in mind. Facing due north & harnessing the winter sunlight, the spacious open plan living area features warming golden-hued floating timber floors & white-painted face brick walls – providing ample wall space for one's eclectic art or wall hanging collection. The modern track lighting even conjures an image of a trendy art gallery.
Overlooking this inviting space is a remarkable kitchen – white polyurethane cabinetry is complemented by extensive solid bamboo bench tops – the fresh oil from this timber still emitting a woody perfumed scent for the next occupant's enjoyment. Soft close drawers should be a delight, as would be the creation of culinary masterpieces from the Westinghouse brand electric hot plates & under bench oven. There's room for at least 4 persons to sit at the breakfast bar, as well as a double hung aluminium window to enjoy the courtyard garden outlook from. Expectant recesses await the company of a new dishwasher & microwave oven.
Both bedrooms also offer painted brick feature walls & offer lush cream-coloured wool carpet, large light-attracting windows & substantial built-in robes. The main also is north oriented. A sensible 3-way design provides separate spaces for the laundry, bathroom & WC. All have been tastefully remodelled with minimalism in mind – white wall tiles contrast nicely with the light tan floor & the rich rustic browns of the fashionable, up-market vanity unit. Once again windows in these wet areas allow both natural light & air ventilation, with the white venetian blinds carrying on the Nordic theme.
Wall-mounted electric heating is an excellent back up to the solar orientation's effectiveness & there is ample cupboard space available for one's possessions. A single carport with attached storeroom, as well as plentiful visitor's parking should adequately cover vehicular & external storage requirements.
Outdoor entertaining may either be intimate or partygoing with all the balmy evenings ahead – there's a covered patio offering both privacy & protection from the elements – an ideal set up for al fresco dining occasions. It overlooks the generous courtyard - complete with lawn, raised timber edging, an array of colourful plants & small trees, plus an external gate for easy access. Fencing is a blend of minimal maintenance Colorbond & painted timber.
A short stroll to the well-utilised Mawson shopping centre makes life simpler & there's also an abundance of parkland close by for daily walks or jogs. The Woden town centre & Canberra Hospital are only a short drive away, & public transport is conveniently accessible. This distinctive apartment could suit a range of prospective purchasers – investors, busy professionals, retirees or first home buyers. It's difficult not to fall in love with it – see for yourself at the first opportunity to avoid disappointment.
