It takes just one look to see why this residential domain on Mounts Bay Road is called the White Apartments.
The white stucco exterior is echoed in the stunning white marble cladding of the floor and walls of the entry, including a water feature wall.
To call it anything else would fly in the face of logic.
I’ve been here before, reviewing a rear apartment backing onto a section of Kings Park.
The vista from this second storey abode is just as lovely—and overlooking Mounts Bay Rd there’s certainly a lot more action.
Depending on your line of sight your pulse will race, or you’ll be lulled into a soporific trance.
From the broad (32sqm) balcony the city office towers loom over the avenue of trees to the east, while directly in front I watched, heart in mouth, as a pair of swans guided their downy brood away from the busy road.
(It was certainly heartening to see cars slow to a crawl just in case).
On the artificial lake, with its lush surrounding of trees and grass, a pelican glided past, and a family of ducks gently bobbed.
With floor-to-ceiling glass in both bedrooms, waking up would like being tickled by nature, the first sight of the morning tree-tops and sky.
You get an inkling of the view the minute you step inside this two-by-two abode as eyes are drawn across the open-plan living/dining/kitchen to banks of windows and doors to the balcony and beyond.
Floating timber floors glow a soft gold underfoot, including the thoroughly modern kitchen.
There’s no shortage of preparation or storage in this generous space, with its white-fronted cupboards and white caesar stone benches, including an island bench.
The vendor is ready to move ASAP and is offering to throw in all the furniture as part of the deal.
I loved the prodigious timber and glass dining suite, with its six white-leather chairs.
Which goes beautifully with the white lounge, from which you can watch the huge smart TV and enjoy surround sound.
There really is nothing more to do than move in and unpack your suitcase.
Then kick back and enjoy being this close to Perth’s CBD with its swag of cafes, restaurants, shopping and nightlife.
And then there’s the upcoming Elizabeth Quay and Riverside Marina development.
What are you waiting for? Start packing.
