An enviable locationBack
Sitting pretty within a complex of just five townhomes, this character-filled home in the enviable location of Forrest is truly a rare find.
Director and licensed agent at Christine Shaw Properties, Christine Shaw, says this home has a few rather unique features.
“This might be called a ‘regular’ body corporate, which means anyone can purchase the residence for sale. However, the lease schedule shows you need to be over 60 to live there,” she says.
“The other unique feature is that in 2008, the front yard space was allocated to each of the five residences as its own private courtyard and each individual owner has the responsibility to maintain and have the private advantage of the space.”
Shaw says there are “so many demographics” that could take advantage of all this home has to offer, including those looking to purchase something for a parent or grandparent to live in, as well as short- and long-term investors.
“Of course,” Shaw says, “the last demographic will be those already over 60 who see how special this townhouse is”.
And special it is, with two courtyards and within walking distance to popular Manuka.
“The location is gold – so very close to Manuka Shopping Precinct and the Parliamentary Triangle – and the new owner will love visiting Manuka cinema, the pool and the AFL games. The views are fantastic, and the opportunity to have two courtyards is rare.
Other features include expansive windows which allow the light to flood in, downstairs powder room, automated garage, gas heater and a silent inclinator for easy access to the second floor.
“The master bedroom has its own balcony,” Shaw says, “plus the energy rating of EER 4.0 is fantastic for this double-brick residence.
“The silent inclinator is so very slimline that it doesn’t restrict access upstairs at all. It is there for whenever it is needed.”
