There’s nothing more special than dining with a view. A rare opportunity to fit out and run a restaurant or café right on Lake Burley Griffin has opened up in prestigious Yarralumla.

Chris Antos, Sales and Leasing Executive, Laing + Simmons Commercial, Canberra, says the newly built contemporary space, with massive waterfront views, will be a drawcard for Canberrans and tourists.

‘It’s such a unique opportunity with flexible options for any café or restaurant owner,’ says Chris. ‘The property presents really well and looks amazing and as a new build the opportunities are endless for a quality hospitality operator. And you simply can’t beat the prime location.’

This unique property features an extensive outdoor terrace.

The property is surrounded by mature trees and has an extensive outdoor terrace. The massive windows allow for full views overlooking the lake. The building features a separate kitchen area and has a great look and feel that suits the area — it’s designed to have a classy boat house feel with timber beams and white accents.

This is a rare chance for a quality café or restaurant operator to move into a purpose-built space, with careful consideration to functionality in the base building design, with input from Doma Group, who have extensive hospitality experience.

The structure is surrounded by mature trees.

‘Someone could operate breakfast and lunch during the day and then run special and larger events, like weddings, in the evening,’ says Chris. ‘The building is adjoined to Canberra Girls Grammar School’s mess hall and meeting rooms which can be used in conjunction with the new space. There’s simply nothing to compare it too.’

‘This tenancy is set to activate the surrounding parkland and service Yarralumla and the Canberra community as the area is filled daily with rowers, cyclists and young families enjoying all that lake has to offer,’ says Chris.

The space is ready to be taken over or fitted out now. Easy-to-spot signage will ensure clear directions, ensuring the building will be easy to find. It offers great parking provisions for those who want to drive.

The building at 43 Alexandrina Drive, Yarralumla, is 231.5 sqm.
