For a city designed around lakes and waterways, Canberra has not traditionally had a lot of options for water-side living. But thanks to a wide range of new developments, finding an abode with water views from your balcony, lounge or even your bed is becoming more common. Here are four homes, available for sale right now on Zango, where you can lap up water views every day of the year.
Waterfront living doesn’t get much closer or come much more spectacular in Canberra than the Kingston Foreshore, and you can enjoy it in style in this two bedroom sub-penthouse apartment. It boasts a 180 degree outlook thanks to a wraparound balcony, with captivating panoramic sunrise to sunset views across Kingston Foreshore and back towards Canberra CBD over Lake Burley Griffin. The apartment has a gourmet kitchen plus spacious living and dining areas, and floor to ceiling double glazed windows throughout ensure you can enjoy the views no matter where you are in the apartment. Just a quick ride down the lift and you also get to enjoy all the vibrant foreshore has to offer.
The Lake Ginninderra foreshore is now the buzzing home to a number of developments with plenty of opportunities to live lakeside, like this two bedroom, two bathroom apartment. Nestled on the fifth floor, its wraparound balcony offers views over John Knight Memorial Park and along the entire expanse of Lake Ginninderra. Inside is designed for easy living, with a stylishly appointed kitchen, bedrooms with lake views, two generously sized bathrooms, and a whole lot more storage space than you’d usually find in an apartment. Live here and you’ll also get to enjoy the complex’s private gym, pool and barbecue area.
There aren’t as many options to buy a family-sized home with waterfront views in Canberra - they tend to get snapped up when they hit the market so you have to be quick. There's also this brand new three bedroom townhouse in the Istra development on the shore of Lake Tuggeranong. It’s designed to combine the ease of townhouse living, with the comforts and space of a traditional home. As well as a spacious open plan kitchen, living and dining area on the ground floor, it has a rumpus room on the upper level, along with the three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The townhouse sits on the quiet side of the lake surrounded by natural parkland, but it’s still just a short walk to Tuggeranong Town Centre.
Want private waterfront living? You can’t get much more secluded than a rural estate with your own private dam. Set over 20 acres, this architecturally designed family home offers large scale, relaxed living. The home has six bedrooms, four bathrooms, two separate studies, formal and informal living and dining options, and a rumpus room, plus there’s an additional fully self-contained cottage on the property. The home boasts some impressive views so you can get cosy and gaze out over the dam, plus your own swimming pool, tennis court, and surrounding rolling hills.
