A MIX-up in viewing times to see this Perth apartment sparked a love affair with fantasy author Terry Pratchett.
Rather than while away the time in the lobby, I went to the bookshop across the road, where a delightful young shop assistant steered me towards Mort.
The novel is screamingly funny and I can’t put it down, so this inner-city apartment is perfect if you’re old-fashioned like me and enjoy perusing the local bookshop.
In fact there’s a mind-boggling array of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars nearby.
The smells wafting around me as I stood on the pavement had my mouth watering, and I reckon you would be eating out every night if you lived here.
But if you want to whip up something at home there’s a well-appointed kitchen with a half pantry, plenty of cupboards and drawers, attractive granite benchtops and a dishwasher.
A huge window over the sink ensures plenty of natural light, and the mix of grey tones and white tiles is functional and funky.
Freshly painted in the same hues, the light and airy open-plan has floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto a balcony.
The two bedrooms are a good size, and the main has a walk-in-robe, is semi-ensuite and also has a balcony.
There’s a pool, sauna, spa and a gym in the complex, along with an entertainment deck to socialise with fellow apartment dwellers, or invite your mates over for a dip before hitting the nightclubs.
This apartment wouldn’t be out of place in an episode of Sex in the City or Seinfeld.
It’s a cool pad in the thick of it, and Perth Arena is two minutes away by foot, and Shafto and Wolf Lanes are virtually next door.
