In 2015 this quaint, two-storey, three-bedroom apartment became a dream oasis. Immediately captivated by its distinct charm, the homeowners fondly describe it as a fusion of mid-century style and a cozy ski-lodge feel.

This corner unit is, in their eyes, the jewel of the entire complex. Facing Forbes Street, it provides the perfect blend of privacy and serene beauty, with the foliage that adorns the street.

Its location was a prime selling point, offering easy access to the vibrant hubs of Civic and Braddon. They cherished the convenience of car-free living, with shops and restaurants right on their doorstep.

Prior to the homeowners moving in, the apartment had undergone renovations to modernize the interior, including a complete transformation of the kitchen and bathrooms – adding a touch of contemporary flair to its unique character.

Offering a spacious open plan living and dining room, the downstairs living is easily their favourite space. Stunning high, raked ceilings create an open and inviting atmosphere, with large, double-glazed windows ensuring the interior is always bathed in natural light, keeping warm in winter and cool in summer.

Extending off this, the balcony became a cherished corner where the homeowners could set up a barbecue, sip a beverage, and enjoy the fresh air over the magnificent views of Black Mountain and Canberra’s breathtaking sunsets.

The oversized master bedroom is complete with two built in wardrobes and a fully tiled ensuite. The updated kitchen provides ample cabinetry and bench space, a double sink, electric oven, and induction cooktop, complete with a window overlooking the balcony and views.

Heading upstairs, a mezzanine overlooks the living space, providing a tranquil nook for reading or studying with plentiful built-in shelving to satisfy any booklover. Additionally, the other two bedrooms are complete with built-in wardrobes with the second bedroom offering additional storage, and share access to the fully tiled main bathroom.

But as life evolves, so do one’s needs and the homeowners were faced with a tough decision to part with their fantastic and funky abode – as personal requirements for functionality and location led them to seek a new place to call home.

The homeowners will undoubtedly miss the quiet moments spent in their beloved apartment, creating memories and spending time with their playful cat, who loved to bask in the warmth of the sun on the stairwell.

This home has been more than just a place to live – it has been a sanctuary filled with love and laughter, and its unique character will forever hold a special place in the homeowners hearts.
