No stronger statement can be made than the compelling first impressions of apartment.8 at Milano. Dramatic steelwork frames the entry, expansive terrace balcony overlooks the streetscape, and vibrant interactive Braddon position is enviable.
The open plan, living, dining, kitchen, unfolds through full height sliding doors, to north-east facing, dramatic, wrap-around balcony, perfecting indoor, outdoor entertaining, increasing the sense of spatial generosity and flooding the apartment with light. A perfect hang out space, and heart of this luxe apartment, the balcony is the place for serious connection, escape, celebration – long summer evenings with family, friends, or simply relaxing, taking in the activity of the street, watching the light fade.
This beautifully appointed, one-bedroom apartment sits on a wide, tree lined street, and opens to views of streetscape, sky and Mount Ainslie. Positioned within the heart of Braddon – famed for its unique combo of old and new, leafy streets and dynamic commercial, residential precinct, grown out of old industrial sites – the home extends a connected lifestyle, linking you to the finest dining, drinking and shopping destinations within Canberra.
The boutique, Milano complex, was developed by award winning Blackett homes, a family business, synonymous with building quality homes throughout Canberra, for over 40 years. Combining bold geometric shapes, low, flat lines, and weathered steelwork, the distinctive facade nods to Braddon’s industrial past.
The interior is sophisticated, elegant, with black tiling, charcoal carpets, warm neutral cabinetry and striking, brick red accents. High ceilings throughout, contribute to volume, and the prevailing daylight adds to a felt experience of lightness and calm.
The kitchen is beautifully appointed with superior inclusions – stone bench tops, stainless steel appliances, externally ducted range hood, and ample storage. Additional to the bedroom with ensuite and wardrobe storage, is a guest wet room with European style laundry. There is also security intercom, swipe card access and secure car park, with storage cage.
The apartment is very well positioned, on the cusp of the city, within Braddon, close to Haig Park and easy walking distance to O’Connor shops. The home is just a short stroll from the independent cafes, restaurants, bars and boutiques of Lonsdale Street. This central inner-north locale, with its mix of independent businesses, green spaces, reserves and proximity to the CBD, extends the perfect, modern, urban lifestyle. The home is also close to the ANU, schools, transport, including the metro city station, connecting you to the whole of Canberra.
