Work in the City? Imagine being able to walk to work! Apartments in O’Connor from just $329,000

By GEOCON - 24 October 2013 18

Geocon - Chelsea Village

GEOCON are excited to announce the group’s latest release of 23 exclusive apartments located on Macarthur Ave in the inner north suburb of O’Connor. Chelsea Village is like nothing else you will find in the inner north, set amongst wide tree-lined streets and established houses, you’ll find it hard to imagine yourself anywhere else.

Chelsea Village will change the way you live. Imagine being able to walk to work in the city, stopping off at Braddon’s Lonsdale Street along the way for your morning cup of coffee or an early morning breakfast in one of the vibrant cafes. You could pick up dinner at one of the many restaurants on your way home, or take the short walk to Dickson or Lyneham shops to buy groceries and cook up a storm in your beautiful new apartment. Whatever your choice, this superb location will ensure that everything you need is within easy reach.

Your new lifestyle will have you growing your own produce in the communal vegie patch where you will be able to meet your neighbours, exchange gardening tips and share your own fruit and veg amongst your new friends. The development’s 12,000 litre water tank will complement the garden and keep your vegies flourishing. The open parkland adjacent will provide you with endless outdoor space to stretch your legs or simply take a casual stroll and savour the fresh air.

Life at Chelsea Village encapsulates the balance of affordability and inner city convenience along with open spaces to relish close by.

Like all things GEOCON, we place a great deal of importance in the surrounding environment and ensuring that your new home is ideal for a modern lifestyle while remaining sympathetic to the original style of the suburb. You can boast to your friends that your new apartment is built using recycled old Canberra red bricks – reused from the houses that used to stand on the same site.

You can choose from a range of impressive homes, consisting of studios, one bedroom and two bedroom designs and a limited number of two-storey terrace apartments. Whichever design you choose, you will appreciate the quality inclusions and attention to detail in each and every apartment. Pricing and plans are available to view now by contacting GEOCON.

Don’t miss your opportunity the enjoy life at Chelsea Village, register your interest now at www.chelseavillage.com.au or contact Michelle Dzakula on 6108 4949 or at michelle@geocon.com.au for further information.

Thanks for the feedback Holden Caulfield and davo101.
Yes, we definitely have approval to develop the land, even if it is not from the CPO shareholders! 🙂

In regards to Chelsea Village, we wanted to select a name that reflected the goals of the development and the benefits and lifestyle provided to residents. We drew inspiration from New York’s Chelsea Hotel for its societal charm and Greenwich Village for its focus around community.

These are two very important aspects that will feature at Chelsea Village, from a design that incorporates recycled old Canberra red bricks and timber from the original homes on the site in the new design, to a community vegetable garden that will allow residents to grow their own produce in a shared setting.

We wanted to bring a development to the market which was about more than redeveloping blocks; a development that meets the demand of modern inner city living but is also sympathetic to the landscape and heritage of one of Canberra’s most beautiful suburbs.

I always associate the name Chelsea with inner west London

Me too, and the headhunters.

Hi SheepGroper,

Yes and mention walking in the second paragraph of the response – just reiterating that biking is another option, but still close enough to walk.

The body corporate will regulate the use of the communal garden as is the case with all other shared spaces in developments in Canberra.

Like poetix said, everything is feasible by bike

However your ad stated walking, not biking.

I wonder how the communal veggie garden will work in practice? Will there be an organic and and a chemical using end? Most importainly would pets be allowed in this development?

Hi dtc,

The development is located at 77 Macarthur Avenue. Further information is available via the GEOCON website (geocon.com.au) and Allhomes (http://www.allhomes.com.au/ah/act/sale-residential/no-street-name-provided-oconnor-canberra/1316877456111).

Like poetix said, everything is feasible by bike and as khepri highlights, we all know the limitations of a Canberra winter (no matter where you live) but during the other three seasons, a walk to Braddon is quite a nice thing to do. And you’re right, it is a very handy location, particularly having the Lyneham and O’Connor shops so close!

Good concept, but the serenity might be ruined by the harrowing nervous walk between civic and macarthur ave anytime after 5pm in the winter.

That’s a bit of an exaggeration, don’t you think? I know walking through Haig park isn’t always a walk in the park but you can stay on Northbourne to avoid the trees. Hell, even in Winter Northbourne is packed with traffic until well after 6pm, stop being so melodramatic.

Where, exactly, is this? Your website does not even have an address. As someone who lives quite close to MacArthur Ave, claims of walking through Lonsdale St or picking up food at a restaurant on the walk home are a bit far fetched, unless you like cold takeaway…

That said, its a pretty handy location

Can’t you just see the naming meeting?
Chelsea Hotel + Greenwich Village = ???

Chelsea Village, hmm, I hope you got approval from the CPO shareholders to develop the land. 😉

LOL.

They do insist on giving developments god-awful names–Space, Space2, Mode^3…
