If you’re in the market for an apartment, you’ve now found an absolute diamond!

- the perfect north and north-east orientation means you are not overshadowed by any other apartment;
- the perfect floor plan with two bedrooms without shared walls at separate ends of the apartment and minimal hallways; and
- an amazing balcony as a second living area that has views of the green space of Coombs plus the Pond, Black Mountain Tower and the Arboretum !

Forget looking at other apartments with two bedrooms next to each other. You will be forgiven for thinking you’ve struck gold!

Observatory Living consists of seven individual buildings, set around a central courtyard, established as a model to enjoy recreation and fitness. It is like no other complex in Canberra, positioned at the highest point in Wright. Acclaimed for its serenity by Award-winning Jamie Durie designing the landscaped gardens, the fortunate residents living at Observatory Living are treated to unique and enviable options such as a stunning outdoor pool with those gorgeous red tiles, BBQs, fire-pits, exercise circuit and reflection ponds - all this just a short distance to the City, Cooleman Court and Woden.

The community at Observatory Living have the benefit of so many different floor plans of two bedroom apartments – but there are only 6 apartments with this floor plan available in the entire complex of 270. Rare indeed. Another unique feature to set this apartment apart from any others, the second bedroom is king-sized and the ensuite is the same size as the bathroom. There is also no need for a laundry in a cupboard – you have an entire laundry room, large enough to use as a mud-room if you wish.

Can it get any better?
