Taking inspiration from chic townhouses in New York City and London, the brand new Tempus townhomes are like nothing Canberra has ever seen.

In fact, Sam McGregor from McGrath Estate Agents says the largest home in the 19-home complex, 18C David Street in Turner, is “the most premium townhouse currently on offer or ever sold in Canberra in recent years”.

The striking four-bedroom home packs a punch before you even walk through the front door, with its stunning natural copper facade rising from fully landscaped gardens.

“From the outside in, the architect-designed finishes are absolutely outstanding,” Mr McGregor said.

“The raw and natural elements, such as copper, concrete, steel and Italian stone take inspiration from New York townhouses – you’ll see nothing else like it in Canberra.”

Mr McGregor says he has fallen in love with the development as it has been constructed over the past two years, but the premium townhome, set over two levels, has taken his breath away upon its completion.

The grand home boasts two master suites and multiple living areas with a huge, private entertaining terrace and four-car basement garage.

Mr McGregor says the outdoor terrace is a stand-out feature and is perfect for year-round family entertaining.

“The terrace is as big as a backyard in Gunghalin,” he said.

“It’s really private and it has a beautiful aspect with views over the landscaped gardens to Black Mountain Tower,” he said.

The basement garage has also been designed as a flexi-space, with room for all the toys, or you could convert part of the space into a rumpus room or home gym.

“It’s huge and there’s so much you could do with the space,” he said.

The gourmet kitchen is the heart of the home and features Italian stone finishes that perfectly complement the gleaming polished concrete floors on the lower level.

The living rooms and spacious lower master suite flow seamlessly to the terrace area.

Upstairs, a second master or guest room with ensuite and two additional bedrooms take in majestic city and mountain views, while another family room, opening onto a balcony, is an ideal teenage retreat or office space.

Mr McGregor says it’s rare to find off-street parking in Turner and the four-car garage is “incredible”.

And to find an apartment of this quality and 182 square metres of living space just five minutes from Canberra’s CBD, he says, is “unheard of”.

“This high-end home will suit people looking for great access to the city with an easy lifestyle, or downsizers that don’t want to sacrifice space and quality,” Mr McGregor added.

“It’s a 10-minute walk to the city, three minutes to the light rail and just 400 metres to Turner shops with great cafes and restaurants.”

Of solid concrete construction, the townhome features ducted heating and cooling throughout and is extremely energy efficient with double glazing and solar passive design.

This is a limited opportunity to live in a prestigious residence in a city locale unparalleled for plentiful, modern and peaceful amenity.
