THANKS to a massive wall of glass stretching up to the second level ceiling, light poured into the foyer of 1/233 Charles Street, North Perth and I reached for my sunnies before heading upstairs.
The five townhouses making up the complex are so new the paint is barely dry, and they had that lovely new carpet smell.
The ground floor of each is given over to two of the three bedrooms and a laundry.
The sprawling open plan living area is on the second level.
Like identical twins, at first glance each abode is hard to tell apart, but there are differences in layout, and the size of the balconies and courtyards.
The living/dining/kitchens are beautifully laid out with oodles of space and slick, modern lines.
Massive windows and doors are framed in black in striking contrast to the crisp white walls and dove-grey tiled floor.
Glass balustrades on the spacious balconies makes for a seamless view through to the street, or towering trees in neighbouring properties.
White stone tops the sweep of bench space in the generous kitchens, with their floor-to-ceiling double pantries, and dramatic black goose-neck taps.
The main bedroom is on the second level, a spacious area with massive, black-framed windows, walk-in-robes and en suites with double vanities.
There’s secure garaging for two cars for each abode, but living this close to shops, cafes and the city they may well grow cobwebs.
There’s a bus stop right across the street, and the CBD is a mere 10-minute bus ride away, or jump on your bike and you’re there in much the same time.
And the Beatty Park Leisure Centre is within walking distance.
