I’M sure a seagull flying past winked at me as I gazed in awe from this 17th floor penthouse.
Set back from Victoria Avenue, this Terrace Road apartment has an uninterrupted vista of the river and Kings Park and, as the river disappears in the distance you realise you can see the orange cranes on Fremantle harbour.
Shift your gaze and you spot the new Fiona Stanley Hospital, the Raffles’ tower in Melville and the blue haze of the Darling Range.
“[We have] the best views on Terrace Rd, the best views in Perth,” the vendor says.
From this lofty vantage you can watch Elizabeth Quay unfold virtually on the doorstep, enjoy concerts in Supreme Court Gardens, and all the many and varied activities and events on Langley Park. The colour run a couple of weeks ago was awesome fun, witnessed from the massive balcony, says the vendor.
Whisked aloft by one of two lifts you arrive at the huge private foyer of this luxury abode.
Stepping through the front door, sweeping glass walls on two sides of the gargantuan living/dining/kitchen had me pausing to catch my breath as I took in the view.
And my toes curled when I leant on the glass balustrade of the massive balcony for a closer look.
The balcony wraps around the apartment and is so big a built-in-barbecue kitchen and separate sitting area, with two three seater couches, and a couple of massive pots of huge frangipanis, are dwarfed by the space.
When the vendor moved in a little over three years ago he ripped up carpet in favour of beautiful honey-gold timber and completely revamped the huge kitchen.
It’s a gourmet chef’s wet dream, a huge space with gleaming black granite tops and Gaggenau appliances, including a stove top with flame-griller, steamer and four gas hobs, and a built-in coffee maker on the wall—right next to the walk-in pantry.
Which begs the question of why it’s in pristine condition. Seems there are so many eateries within walking distance (including a Gold Plate-winning Vietnamese downstairs) that the vendors prefer to eat out.
All three bedrooms are double, each with an ensuite, but the main is a massive space, with doors to the balcony. There’s a make-up desk in the huge dressing room and its ensuite is a sweeping space, marbled from floor to ceiling, with a spa from which to enjoy those views.
This amazing abode is more resort than home, with the complex also offering a 21-metre heated lap pool, gym, games room, along with a residents’ lounge bar area, tennis court and boardroom.
