THIS is an art deco beauty.
Located a stone’s throw from Elizabeth Quay, this beautifully restored two bedroom one bathroom apartment is in one of Perth’s finest art deco apartment complexes.
You can literally feel the history coming out of the walls as you step into the heritage-listed foyer, which has a vintage green carpet and two lifts with manual wooden doors.
It wouldn’t be out of place in an episode of Poirot, and I could imagine David Suchet examining the brass doorknobs for traces of arsenic.
This fifth-floor apartment is dominated by the gorgeous polished wood on the floorboards, doors and windows frames.
It creates a lovely warm feel to the home, with the hues in the rich timber complementing the neutral colour scheme on the walls.
The picture rails and cornicing add to the ambience, and there’s a lovely ceiling medallion and low hanging light in the lounge.
I really like the bathroom/laundry; not because it’s super swish and modern but because of the red diamond motif on the tiles, which accentuates the art deco theme.
All the rooms have high ceilings, and the two bedrooms are spacious with lots of charm.
The seperate designer kitchen has been renovated and features stunning glossy wooden cupboard doors, stainless steel handles and a pale blue splashback.
It’s an elegant one-of-a-kind number with loads of charisma.
After dinner head out to the full-enclosed balcony, located off the main living area, and enjoy lively views of the bustling inner-city.
Situated in Lawson Apartments in Sherwood Court, this 88sqm pad is literally in the heart of the city and a street away from Elizabeth Quay.
There are several options for the astute buyer: rent short or long term, use as a swish city office, or enjoy living in one of the most historic and classy apartment complexes in the city.
