HAVE you ever felt like you could do with a bit more fizz and pop in your life?
If so the new M/24 apartments in Leederville could be perfect for you, as they are built on the site of the old Golden West Aerated Water Company.
Developers Match Property have subtly incorporated elements of the 1902 building into the complex’s modern design.
“Not many people know but the hexagon design on the facade of the building is supposed to represent the bubbles in the aerated water, and the circle designs represent bottle lids,” says Match’s Amanda Spagnolo.
The boutique development has 39 apartments and is less than 100 metres from the cafe strip on Oxford Street, but the minute you enter the complex you are cocooned from all the hustle and bustle outside.
The one or two bedroom apartments have high ceilings with large contemporary windows, so the rooms feel amazingly spacious, and the finishing touches like the 100 per cent wool carpet add to the luxurious feel.
There’s lots of clever storage space, and the European-style laundry is “hidden” in a cupboard opposite the kitchen.
Don’t worry about being stuck inside, as each apartment has its own spacious balcony or courtyard for entertaining.
There are pleasant views of the city from one side of the apartment block, and vistas of Leederville from the other.
It’s only a short walk to Leederville train station and the complex has secure parking bays with remote control access.
On the ground floor are commercial/retail spaces that are destined to become cafes, boutique retailers and offices.
There are a few apartments left in the $420,000 to $569,000 price range.
The complex doesn’t have fancy facilities like a gym, so strata fees are low.
