After a hard week at work – and when life returns to normal – meet your friends and unwind with Friday night drinks at the Warehouse, a superb spot that offers coffee by day and transforms into a bar at night.

Saturday morning, hit the gym and swim a few laps in the magnesium pool before relaxing in your contemporary terrace home at 13/18 Parbery St in Kingston.

Set over three levels, plus a private basement garage, this three-bedroom home in the outstanding Kingsborough complex offers ultra-modern living in a village-style setting where everything is at your fingertips.

LJ Hooker Dickson sales agent Stephen Bunday says the friendly community vibe gives residents a sense of inclusion, with the central hub offering cafes, a bike shop and even live music in the summer months.

“It’s quite a humming little centre in the middle of the development,” Stephen said.

“It’s become a meeting point for residents who have their own Facebook group and organise get-togethers with their dogs down at the lake.

“You can pick up your bike after it has been serviced at the Kingston Foreshore Cycle Shop, which is also on-site, and head off on a picturesque ride around Lake Burley Griffin.”

Residents can also join the on-site gym and make the most of the pool and sauna facilities (membership required).

The north-facing three-bedroom terrace is modern and sleek, with polished concrete on the ground floor, gleaming white kitchen and show-stopping black and white bathrooms.

On ground level, the open plan living areas flow off the kitchen with Caesarstone benchtops and high-end appliances and out to a sunny private courtyard.

Level one boasts a large master bedroom with a walk-in robe and good sized ensuite, as well as a second living area that is currently fitted out as an office, but could be used as a media room, sitting area or home gym.

The top floor is home to another two good-sized bedrooms, one with a private north-facing balcony, plus a family bathroom.

Stephen says the basement tandem garage easily accommodates two cars, plus there’s a powder room and plenty of space for a workshop or room to store pushbikes.

“Some residents have used this massive space to set up a home gym or work studio,” he added.

The home is cool and very energy efficient, with double glazed windows and a 5.8-kilowatt solar system with a battery.

Completed in 2019, the terrace is one of 24 in the Kingsborough complex and Stephen says the good layout, large bedrooms and fantastic location make it ideal for a small family, young couple or downsizers.

“There are a couple of our long-time employees living in the complex and they all rave about the village hub,” he said.

“It’s a really cool place to live and, with zero maintenance, there’s plenty of time to enjoy the private amenities and the surrounding attractions.

“It’s an ultra-convenient location, just a short stroll or scooter ride down to the nearby Kingston shops or Kingston Foreshore with many delectable restaurants on offer.

“And the whole family, including the dog, can take a wander to the Jerrabomberra wetlands.”
