Perched above the dynamic streets of Deakin as they find their way to the vibrant local hub that is the shopping.coffee.wine and dining precinct, apartment.208 of the Ambassador is right there in the mix.
You might be fair to say, ‘seriously Holly, this is Deakin; dynamic? vibrant?’ Words more attuned to the Inner South (come on, you’ve read the real estate ads) prestigious, accomplished, refined, sought after.
Well, I’ve got news for you. You can have it all. I’ve decided you don’t have to be defined by your location, or your residence, you can be the driver of your own experience.
Apartment.208 is a clear demonstration of a family, yes a family, with two little boys loving it and living the best version of family life in a really beautiful apartment.
Throw away those preconceived ideas that you have, that you need to be mature or older to reside here.
The ‘Ambassador’ is on the move, this can be your home if you want it to be. As you enter through the concierge-style lobby you are whisked into a secret garden realm. The internal courtyards are enthralling, But no less enthralling than the buzz and excitement as you sit on your east-facing terrace and watch the world go by.
Apartment.208 is for the young of heart, with a youthful spirit, a willingness to live life, and of course with a serious sense of style. The ‘Ambassador’ is not for the beige. It will speak to those who appreciate and seek good design and an environment to match. The minimalistic palette and scandi aesthetic utilise timeless materials that endure. That’s the person that will connect with this apartment. Young or old, couple or family, it’s a choice about living in a beautiful place, with curated gardens, a refined setting. It’s a location that offers more than first meets the eye.
Sometimes when you know who resides there, a property can take on a new inspired liveability.
At home with Gus, in apartment.208, the family menu chalked up on the board might trigger familiarity. A local identity loved for his youthful, ebullience of food and service at the iconic 86 restaurant in Braddon is selling his home.
For the past five years, 86 has disrupted and influenced the way we feel about the dining experience in Canberra. At home in the apartment elements of 86 shine through. The menu and day to day are chalked up on a blackboard spanning the sleek elongated kitchen space which has proven a touch too resistant to change in the restaurant and replicates into the day to day of their apartment life.
There is local love with this one. Gus and Liv are selling their much-loved apartment, ever so reluctantly, but it is time. They have wined, dined and loved the ease of living and entertaining at home for many years. Now with two beautiful boys, a restaurant, and a full life, they’re on the move.
