Established in 1922, Braddon is one of Canberra’s first established suburbs and is now a vibrant social, cultural and food hub, brimming with casual and fine dining restaurants, bars, cafes, and boutique stores worthy of attention as a place to live, but for some it may seem a little too busy.

If the thought of stepping out your front door and into the heart of Braddon is tempting but you still want to live with some peace, quiet and privacy, The Grounds may be just what you have been looking for.

Offering modern, spacious living in the heart of Canberra, The Grounds is a high-quality development with a mix of 92 apartments and 48 terrace homes thoughtfully planned as an exclusive urban village bordering the city centre and overlooking the sweeping greens of heritage-listed Northbourne Oval. Dubbed Canberra’s ‘spiritual home’ of sport, the oval has a rich history as home to the premiership-winning Northbourne Cricket Club.

Constructed by one of Canberra’s leading building companies, Construction Control Australia, The Grounds builds on this heritage with each floorplan named after a cricket player from the golden era between the 1920s and 1960s. With over 30 years of operation in Canberra, Construction Control has delivered many of Canberra’s most impressive projects and precincts.

Independent senior sales consultant Adrian Stroh says The Grounds offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity, “the chance to live in the leafy streets of Braddon, minutes from the city but away from it all”.

“It is unrepeatable.”

If you are looking for your own private oasis with warmth, style and character, buyers can choose from a selection of 2, 3 and 4-bedroom terrace homes with multiple living areas, lock-up garages and courtyards. Select terraces have direct frontage and views of Northbourne Oval, with large courtyards perfect for pets and entertaining.

“The terraces have been designed with downsizers specifically in mind. The north-facing, two-bedroom terraces also have a media room giving room for guests as well as a second living space,” Adrian explained.

Designed by multi-award-winning international design consultancy Marchese Partners, The Grounds terrace homes exemplify the firm’s ability to achieve innovative, beautiful and functional design.

The 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments provide abundant open space, natural light and enviable views across the vivid Inner North, with select apartments featuring scenic views over Northbourne Oval in one direction and Canberra’s stunning cityscape in the other.

Designed by the multi-award-winning team at JUDD Studio, The Grounds apartments showcase the team’s exceptional attention to detail, and unique vision to create an urban sanctuary offering all the benefits of inner-city living within a suburban sanctuary. Select apartments come with a full lock up garage located in the basement, a rarity in apartment design.

All apartments and terraces offer premium inclusions, high-quality finishes, double-glazed windows and engineered timber flooring throughout living areas as standard.

You can view The Grounds terraces and apartments online and see all the other hot listings on Zango. If you would like to visit the display suite, or would like further information, call Adrian Stroh, senior sales consultant, Independent Inner North and City, on 0423 925 727.
