Barton Court Tudor

"Barton Court", Canberra's first apartment building, and a true testament to the craftsmanship of the day. Timeless in style, generous in proportion and located in a tightly held enclave of Barton which has the best access to executive employment hubs, less than 800m to the beautiful lake shore and yet the bustle of thriving cafe's, restaurants and bars. Designed by Kenneth Oliphant and built in 1934, this ground floor apartment, retains most of its original features including refurbished hardwood floors, a deep cast iron bath, solid art decor doors, original timber picture rails + architraves, delightfully chic milk and bread delivery boxes by the laundry, and an ornate slim brick feature fireplace. Step back in time with sunrise door handles, a decorative staircase in the building entry way straight from a Frank Lloyd Wright architectural sketchbook, not to mention the feel of the building - which can not be aptly described. Generous for the time, some 100+ square metres of internal space flowing over the large north facing lounge, dining room, separate kitchen, functional bathroom and two beautiful bedrooms both with built in storage. "Barton Court" is the perfect location for those who dream of living and working in the heart of the Parliamentary Triangle, and anyone wishing to downsize to something with character in the Inner South. * Generous sized living room with open fire place + recessed bookshelves + northern aspect * Two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes + functional bathroom * Separate, spacious dining room + courtyard garden views * Original kitchen with ample bench space, ample scope for redesign/ remodel * Hydronic heating + open fireplace + double brick construction * Freshly painted throughout, refurbished timber flooring in all living areas and bedrooms * Extensive mature common gardens with 90-year-old Crab Apples, Oaks and Manchurian Pear trees, Cherry Blossoms, and well-established rose and herb gardens * Five minutes' drive to the Manuka and Kingston dining + Hale Heath club * Airport access simple, easy walk to the offices of DFAT, Finance, PM&C, AGD and Parliament House, and the designated walking trails surrounding Lake Burley Griffin and Capital Hill * Telopea Park School catchment * Rates $3,698pa , Land Tax $4,747pa, Strata Levies $1,784pq, Heating Levy $619pq (all approx.)
