Five beautiful Canberra residences?

By johnboy - 17 December 2013 30

london circuit

Property Observer is taking us through “five of the most gorgeous properties currently listed”.

I don’t think any of them will be troubled by Kevin McCloud.

I mean seriously. O’Malley twice?

They are taking votes but at the moment appear to only have two votes, one of which is mine, and I didn’t like any of them.

What’s Your opinion?

I didn’t bother to look at all of them, but I see one’s a flat and another’s a mock-Tuscan McMansion.

If they’re “beautiful”, then I’m a supermodel.

The only reason I’d give you more than 5 bob for four of them is to sell as quickly as possible. The Tennyson Ave property though does appear to qualify as a beautiful property. The other four are just ugly monstrosities so typical of a society that has very little real class or culture.

you could really get your creative juices flowing with all that white and beige. And I just loooooove tiles in the living room, so cozy.

That billiard table sounds suspiciously like the one the old Civic Workers Club used to have.

John Brown’s desk will surely be featured in the next breathlessly exciting, envy-inspiring instalment.

Is this your standard pickup line?

Well, us ladies don’t get to use pickup lines very often (if ever)……..and spoken for anyway….but, if I did, I more prefer something like “do you believe in love at first sight or do I have to walk by again?”

Swagger.

I am being serious with my point though, if I had to move back to Canberra I’d find it pretty much impossible to find a building with as many amenities/services as where I live in Sydney. Given the market, they should offer more for the $$ people pay (or have places that charge more to give people the option).

Two things?

Nobody expects the Spanish Interior Design Inquisitors!

“The cornices are hand painted….”‘

MY cornices are handpainted too! hahaha!

Wow! I am hoping to purchase a caravan containing a beer fridge that once contained dog food fed to a greyhound owned by David Boon, which, rumour has it, the great man opened himself. I am not sure if that’s the fridge or the can, but still, either is good.

Any beer fridge owned by David Boon would surely have worn out door hinges…

I think the author of that article is confusing expensive with beautiful.

the indoor swimming pool in #3 is pretty kicking….admit it!

surprised at the lack of quality in the kitchen of the “penthouse” apartment (#5) on london cct….Canberra has a /long/ way to go till it meets the property market standards in other cities…my Sydney apartment knocks any of those outta the park!!

A contemporary version of Dante’s Inferno would have a Circle for those poor souls condemned to produce such puff pieces.
