My home is an elegant and stylish one bedroom apartment in a modern building in the heart of the national capital. It has a large and well-equipped kitchen, spacious living and dining area, a large double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and walk in wardrobe and a separate laundry. The furnishings are top quality (recently updated from those in the photos) and the apartment has an unrivalled view of the city, the lake and Parliament House. The complex is safe and secure and is one of the finest apartment complexes in Canberra. It has fast wi-fi and Foxtel and all the mod-cons of a luxury apartment.
The Metropolitan Apartments are within walking distance of the best that Canberra has to offer. The apartment is adjacent to the main shopping precinct, entertainment centres and restaurants and the Palace Cinemas. The Australian National University (ANU), one of Australia's premier universities, is immediately west of the apartment and a few minutes walk. The foreshore of Lake Burley Griffin and the green and leafy parks and national institutions of the Parliamentary Triangle, including Parliament House, the National Gallery and the National Museum are directly south of the apartment.
Sydney is a three hour drive or short 30 minute flight from Canberra.
I am a legal academic at the Australian National University. I am also a Visiting Fellow at the School of Advanced Study, University of London, and I travel to the UK to undertake research approximately four times a year. I am keen to find a comfortable place to work and relax during these visits. My preference is for somewhere in London, Oxford or Cambridge.
