Large luxury apartment with never to be built out water views

Sensational water views with a creatively designed park and pond at the water's edge, bespoke interiors, and unusually expansive living areas set this remodeled 2 bedroom unique apartment apart. This beautiful, elevated, north aspect space is serene with private balconies perfectly suited for Canberra winters. Also, adjacent to wetlands with wetland walks and viewing platforms. As a result views from the apartment include a large variety of birds and waterbirds to watch, frogs to listen to in summer, grazing mooing cows to enjoy across the water, and sounds of nature generally to nourish the soul.

No other buildings are visible from the internal living areas thus occupants can enjoy privacy, wonderful light, winter warmth and summer cool and rarely found spacious living areas. Set in what is arguably Kingston Foreshore's most peaceful area, this apartment is not just a home, it's a retreat, and a lifestyle upgrade to dream of. Boasting almost 110 m2 of internal living area plus two balconies, it is part of the award-winning, boutique complex, 'Peninsula', with just 61 apartments. Live-in owners mostly occupy it and these owners have developed a special community spirit for which Peninsula has become well known with monthly social events.

The clever apartment design features excellent use of space in the custom-designed kitchen, living areas, and bedrooms incorporating plentiful storage throughout. Its liveability is enhanced by the northerly aspect of the main bedroom and living areas with double glazed sliding doors (minimal electricity bills!). Superb water views can also be enjoyed from the kitchen - which has stone benchtops, maximum drawers and a curved raised bar with private work area under. Dishwasher is Miele.

Multifunction induction hotplates and ovens (which include microwave function) are top German products by Neff. The Qasair overhead rangehood is a state-of-the-art ventilating system that removes cooking smells and gives clean air back into the apartment. All these products are at the forefront of kitchen technology and they add to the individual nature of the chic, modern kitchen.

Open-plan living areas flow seamlessly onto the balcony, allowing for a generous lounge suite and large dining table. Bedrooms, living areas, and kitchen all have expansive water views. The master bedroom opens via sliding doors onto a private balcony (with 2 dwarf citrus trees that will remain), perfect for enjoying your morning coffee. The second bedroom and bathroom enjoy complete separation from the main bedroom. This double bedroom with its full-width windows also enjoys the same north aspect and expansive water views.

Year-round comfort is assured throughout with ducted reverse cycle heating and cooling, under-tile and overhead heating in bathrooms, and outdoor heating on the main balcony where a dwarf Japanese maple and three white potted plants (providing sitting privacy) will remain in place.

The 'Peninsula' development offers 2 communal areas with BBQ facilities. The most impressive is the beautifully landscaped rooftop where you can entertain the largest of extended families, savor the spectacle of the sun setting over the lake, casting hues of orange and pink over the water, watch the firework displays and hot-air balloons rising with the sun. The door to second communal area is accessed close by Apartment 204. Car parking is within the building and ground floor parking is accessed via a self-opening door from the front entry.
Elevate your lifestyle with our Peninsula residence - where luxury meets tranquility and every moment is a celebration of refined living within a beautiful community.


The 'Peninsula', when completed in 2017 was awarded two major building awards: Master Builder's Award and HIA Building Award for best Best Apartment Building Four Storeys and Above
