I’M hoping a film-star lifestyle is heading my way after my “starring” role in an infomercial about this East Perth apartment.
Of course when the big bucks roll in I’ll be able to afford this four-bedroom/three-bathroom penthouse on the water’s edge.
My role was accidental, having rocked up early for a home review to find a film crew asking agent Brendon Habak about his recent 30th birthday, and his taking out WA’s top gong for residential sales for the second year in succession.
I quite enjoyed playing interested buyer as I walked from spacious room to spacious room in this lovely abode.
I even got to improvise a bit of light relief, jumping (gently) on the bed in the commodious main bedroom. They should slo-mo it I reckon.
But I didn’t have to act being impressed by the place, particularly its delightful views across the river to the casino from the wrap-around balcony–a huge 31sqm of entertainment space. With the new sports stadium also to be within viewing distance, I can well imagine many a game of footy to be enjoyed from here.
It was easy to look impressed by a scene washed in soft spring sunshine, with people wandering along paths, sitting on manicured park lawns and kayaking gently past.
A fantastic curved wall of glass, flanked by floor-to-ceiling glass doors, brings the view into the spacious open plan living/dining/kitchen.
I thought I’d seen it all but I really was impressed by the galley-style kitchen, with its walk-in pantry, soft-grey stone benches and Gaggenau appliances.
From a window that gazes out across the lovely East Perth footbridge to the opposite bank, you can check out the many cafes and restaurants to see if there’s a free table before heading off.
Getting my kit off and trying out the ensuite shower was never on the cards, unless the infomercial was going X-rated, but I rather liked the idea of showering while taking in such a delightful river view.
This area is set to come even more alive as Perth is transformed into a world-class metropolis with Elizabeth Quay, Waterbank on the city’s eastern gateway and development around the casino/stadium. This apartment is in the thick of the action.
