IT’S not often we ordinary folk get the chance to look down on the royal family, but from this 15th floor eyrie you’ll have a birds’s eye view when the Queen, or her heir, next stay at Government House.
Or you could check out the comings and goings at the Duxton Hotel—where Prince Harry allegedly stayed on his recent whistlestop tour.
As a republican I’d be spending all day on the balcony looking at the magnificent gardens of the governor’s backyard, backdropped by the river—you can even see the cranes at Fremantle Port from here.
Or gazing up to Kings Park, and the Barrack Street arch, and when the Elizabeth Quay comes on line, you’ll be eye-balling that as well, perhaps grumbling about how much it cost.
Condor Tower started life as a commercial building before being added on to and transformed into apartments.
The result is a mix of fantastic dwellings from deluxe penthouses to two-bedroom apartments such as this.
The foyer is a mind-blowing experience, a sweeping space of chrome, black tiles and glass, a vibrant collection of modern art, and a magnificent life-size silver gum tree, complete with gumnuts. Even the lift has funky art.
The living spaces are open-plan, with a wall of glass onto the balcony to take in the views from any vantage.
The well-designed compact kitchen has black granite on the island bench, white caesar stone and stainless steel on the wall bench and two large pantry cupboards.
Both bedrooms are double, with ensuite (checkout the stylish marble vanities) while the main has walk-in robes too.
For these hot days and nights there’s a pool, complete with waterfall, on the roof.
And to ensure you look toned in your togs, there’s a fully equipped gym.
Perth is literally laid at your feet like a carpet, and you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to entertainment, all within walking distance.
Ensuring the car spends most of its time in the secure parking bay.
