From the moment you step foot in this luxury executive penthouse in the heart of Canberra, you’ll know you’ve found something special.
The spacious, single-level home is proving popular for its abundance of space, generous offerings within the building, views of gorgeous sunsets of Black Mountain Tower and proximity to Commonwealth Park, Lake Burley Griffin and the city centre.
The building is the only residential offering in the inner city suburb of Parkes.
With three bedrooms, three bathrooms and more than 178 square metres of living space, LJ Hooker Canberra City real estate agent Antony Damiano said one of the most attractive features of 81/44 Constitution Avenue is its size.
“A lot of apartments these days are a lot smaller, so it’s been well thought out with great separation of the living spaces and bedrooms,” he said.
“One of the best things about its design is that this unit has a 50 square metre balcony that runs the entire length of the property.
“The amenities in this building are also second to none. The development has a staffed concierge service. It’s got a cool room and postage room for deliveries, as well as two gyms, an indoor heated pool, a sauna and a steam room.”
Antony said you’ll be immersed in a lavish and elegant open-living space as you enter the home.
“The finishes are premium. You’ll notice there’s a lighter colour scheme throughout the home, which is very neutral and can cater to anyone’s style,” he said.
“There are floor-to-ceiling double-glazed windows and timber flooring throughout. Another feature worth mentioning is that this building is the only residential block centrally located on the baseline for the Parliamentary Triangle and its location is prestigious. Its proximity to the city is something that pulls buyers’ attention.”
Additional features include an ethanol fireplace and fully ducted reverse-cycle heating and cooling.
As you approach the dining area of the home, you will find the large, elegant kitchen with 2.7 metre-high ceilings.
“It’s got a lot of premium finishes that flow throughout the penthouse,” Antony said.
“You’ve just got a lot of flexibility and the combination of the formal and informal dining setup is quite unique.
“There’s a large island benchtop, which combines beautiful craftsmanship with practical design.”
The kitchen has a walk-in pantry and 900-millimetre Miele appliances, including the externally ducted rangehood and overhead feature glazed cabinetry.
The luxury penthouse features three standard-sized bedrooms and three bathrooms. Antony said they are versatile and can easily be converted into a study.
“The main bedroom has a generously sized walk-in robe,” he said.
“There’s floor-to-ceiling tiles throughout each bathroom and underfloor heating. The bathrooms feature really high-end finishes, stone vanity tops and LED lighting. The ensuite of the home is also pretty special as it’s got his and hers sinks and a bathtub. ”
The property also features a separate laundry with an additional powder room, as well as a secure, double lockup garage.
