AT first glance this Burgess Street, Leederville dwelling could be mistaken for a swish mansion – or perhaps a row of luxury townhouses.
Sleek, modern lines, skillion roof pitches, expansive balconies and the manicured front lawn of this boutique development bely the fact it is in fact a mix of seven, brand-new, two-bedroom apartments.
Arriving at this ground-floor abode is like walking up to a friend’s house, with a swathe of lawn, a neat garden, and a covered portico.
The interior is a muted collection of greys and browns, with soft-grey tiles on the open plan floor, a shade darker grey in the Caesarstone kitchen benches and warm brown timber-veneer on the cupboards.
The compact kitchen has a floor-to-ceiling pantry and a breakfast bar, and there’s a gleaming dishwasher and stainless steel oven and stove waiting to be put to work.
And what better christening than whipping up a meal for friends for an alfresco housewarming party in the courtyard off the dining area.
Protected by high fences the roofed patio is a pleasant spot to enjoy a relaxing breakfast, coffee and the paper – or a romantic dinner for two.
The bedrooms are double, the main a tad larger. It also has larger floor-to-ceiling built-in-robes.
Gleaming in white, stainless steel and wood-grained veneer the very swish, semi-ensuite has double vanities.
This is a great home for a young professional couple, or retirees looking for a lock and leave.
Ideally located in a quiet street, it’s mere metres away from the action on Oxford Street, including a great Italian restaurant at the end of the road, and the fantastic Re Store just around the corner.
When it comes to getting fit, the Loftus Health Club is close to hand, or enjoy an early morning swim at Beatty Park or ride your bike around Lake Monger.
Getting to work will be a piece of cake, with plenty of public transport options, and the freeway two minutes away.
There are only three of these boutique apartments left, so get in quick.
