WINTER solstice (June 21) is a time of celebration for me because it means the hemisphere is on a trajectory towards warmth, while blood-curdling cries can be heard from our place at the summer solstice as we lament the coming of shorter days and cold.
Living at Solstice Tower in East Perth you can enjoy all the seasons: from this fourth-floor apartment you would have a great vantage point to observe the various shades, textures and moods of the seasons, whether it’s rain lashing the city skyline, golden sunshine sparkling off the river on Perth’s balmy days or the russet turning of leaves in autumn.
With walls of glass everywhere, and a large balcony off the second lounge room, living here offers great views for year’s Australia Day fireworks.
From the even larger balcony off the open huge living/dining/kitchen you gaze across over the river to the casino.
Massive walls of glass off the living area make this the perfect location for a spot of alfresco entertainment.

Or grab your binoculars and watch the game because from here you’ll get great views of the new stadium when it’s built.
Meticulously maintained, and owner-occupied, this commodious apartment is as large as many homes, with 164sqm of internal living and 47sqm of balconies.
The substantial, galley-style kitchen looks brand new, with its gleaming white cupboards and soft-close drawers, stone topped benches, including a generous island bench, and Miele stove and dishwasher.
Lovely golden timber floors can be found throughout the living spaces, while the bedrooms are carpeted.
The main bedroom has the biggest ensuite I’ve seen in an apartment, with a deep, deep spa bath, double vanities and a generous shower.
The other two bedrooms are double, both with views, one with balcony access.
For those wanting to get fit there’s a communal lap pool, spa and sauna on the first floor.
Or for more gentle exercise, take a stroll along the river, which is literally at the bottom of the road.
When it comes to dining choices, cosmopolitan Claisebrook and its many cafes and restaurants are a short walk away, or jump on the free CAT bus and you’re in the CBD in no time.
Which makes the two secure parking bays redundant.
