IN 2006 The Maltings development in Perth won a second national award for successfully blending heritage and modern living.
Fast forward to 2019 and the complex still looks stunning, with modern apartments, communal open spaces, gorgeous gardens, a pool and gym.
The circa 1903 heritage buildings were originally a brewery, but in 1928 the owners stopped making booze and began supplying the Swan Brewery with brewer’s malt instead.
Apartment 15 is located on top of one of the original malthouses.
The three-bedroom abode is modern and sleek, with massive iron and timber beams supporting the lofted ceiling in the open plan.
Lovely blackbutt floors are found throughout the three-levels.
Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor, including the main which has built-in-robes and an ensuite. There’s also bathrooms and a laundry-in-a-cupboard on this level.
The middle level is a generous open-plan kitchen/dining/living space.
Windows either side ensure plenty of natural light, and there’s stunning views of the city from the kitchen.
This well-equipped space has soaring ceilings and a heap of drawers and cupboards, including a walk-in pantry.
For alfresco dining there’s a pleasant and very private balcony on the northern side of the living space.
For larger gatherings there’s a communal entertainment area downstairs.
The top level of this apartment is a guest room or office, tucked under a cathedral ceiling.
Situated on Palmerston Street, the apartment is within walking distance of Northbridge and the CBD, not to mention Russell Square.
Get in quick and you could be walking to some brilliant shows at Fringe World next month.
