Cafe culture

THIS two-bedroom apartment on the Beaufort Street strip is a chance to immerse yourself in the cafe lifestyle and is perfect for couples or retirees looking to downsize.

Wake up and smell the coffee as you open the main bedroom window.

In fact, you could just about lower a basket to cafes for “home delivery” of piping-hot croissants and coffee.

The main living area has a street-facing balcony. It’s a fantastic spot for an alfresco breakfast and there’s plenty of hustle and bustle on Beaufort Street to keep you entertained.

Natural light

The boutique complex has only eight apartments and number 11 is the largest, covering 111sqm if you include the garage and balconies. If the numbers don’t seem to add up, that’s because the bottom floor is a mix of office/retail.

Honey-gold bamboo flooring dominates the entry and spacious open plan interior, and is a lovely contrast to crisp white walls.

Living a stone’s throw from a plethora of cafes and restaurants, I suspect there won’t be much cooking done in the compact kitchen, but should you be tempted there’s stone benchtops wide enough for a breakfast bar in this modern domestic space.

With two balconies – one facing north – there’s fantastic cross-ventilation and plenty of natural light in the living area.

Heavy sunscreen blinds on both balconies ensure privacy and protection come rain or shine.

The second bedroom has a smaller balcony and is semi-en suite, while the main has a walk-in-robe and ensuite.

An internal storeroom has been cleverly converted into a small study, and a there’s a lift to whisk you from the secure parking to almost the apartment’s front door.

Situated in the heart of Mt Lawley the city is a pleasant 20-minute walk away, or five minutes on the bus, which stops right outside the complex.

There’s no shortage of shops, cafes, bars and entertainment venues nearby.
