Downsizing in your 50s means you can spend less time on home maintenance and more time enjoying life to the fullest.
That’s certainly the case with this stylish, single-level townhouse at 4/20 Dominion Court in Forrest, which is oh so close to the chic inner-south galleries, eateries and boutiques.
Sales agent Moira Maloney from Maloney’s Property says the home is the only one of five in the complex approved for over 50s; the others are for over 60s.
“It’s a unique opportunity,” she said.
“For someone looking to downsize, just a short stroll to Manuka and Kingston, it’s ideal.”
Ms Maloney says the complex offers a community atmosphere where residents keep an eye out for each other.
“It’s a charming, quiet property,” she added.

Built in 1991, the home has had a fresh makeover, with plantation shutters adding a contemporary element to the light, bright open plan living area.
Unique to this property is the leafy street appeal and direct private access from Dominion Circuit.
“It feels like you’re entering your own house,” Ms Maloney said, “you don’t feel like you’re in a complex.”
A path through the sunny established gardens leads to the cottage-style townhouse with its light-filled, open-plan living and dining areas.
The high ceilings and windows overlooking the garden create a sense of space.
The main bedroom provides ample cupboard space with direct access to the large two-way bathroom, while the second bedroom is ideal as an office or guest room.
This home offers modern comfort and security, with a fenced private courtyard or utility space at the rear.
Additional features include built-in robes in the second bedroom, a lock-up garage and electric heating/cooling.
This home offers a low-maintenance lifestyle choice in peaceful surroundings yet within easy access of the popular inner-south chic lifestyle precincts.
Don’t wait until you’re 60 to downsize, do it now and spend more time enjoying the good things in life!
