The location couldn’t be better. This immaculate, recently refurbished two-bedroom apartment enjoys a prime location in trendy Kingston, near parks and Lake Burley Griffin as well as the thriving bars, restaurants and cafes of this popular part of Canberra.
While 4/10-12 Howitt Street is close to the action, it still holds a perfect place on a beautiful, quiet, tree-lined street.
The 78 square-metre (approx) apartment features a large and sunny living area, with a sliding patio door leading onto one of two private balconies.
“This property in cosmopolitan Kingston has so many benefits,” says Quinten Hodgkinson from Hodgkinson Real Estate, “Being an established property, the bedrooms are larger and the open living areas are larger, making for easy living.”
The unit has been freshly painted and has new carpet throughout.
The well-laid out kitchen has had a makeover. “It’s been updated and now has a new dishwasher, cooktop and oven,” says Quinten. “There are cupboards galore, all in good shape, and plenty of counter space. The breakfast bar is also a great feature.”
The master bedroom has floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors leading onto a patio overlooking mature trees. The second bedroom is a good size. Both bedrooms include generous built-in wardrobes.
“The bathrooms have been upgraded, so everything has a more modern feel,” says Quinten.
The unit is in a low-density complex and so is private. Residents enjoy lovely, mature gardens and a resident pool. Other features include a split-system air conditioning unit, clothes dryer and basement car park.
The location couldn’t be more convenient, with everything within walking distance, including historic Kingston with its well-established restaurants, cafes and bars, as well as every amenity imaginable (post office, dry cleaners, newsagent). Green Square is a draw card with its new medical centre, chemist and fashion shops.
The vibrant Kingston Foreshore development is a stone’s throw away with its lively hospitality scene. The Fitters Workshop and Bus Depot Markets host a never-ending rotation of special events and markets—both are directly across from the acclaimed and award-winning Canberra Glassworks; a dynamic, professional artists’ facility.
Public transportation is easy, and the unit is located close to Telopea Primary School, Telopea High School, and St Edmund’s College. The location is also close to the city and the Canberra Centre.
And to cap it off, the property boasts an EER of 4.5.
