LET’S face it, Bassendean used to have a pretty naff image.
Many thought it was like some cheap fanny pack strapped to the bulging gut of Bayswater with little sophistication or sense of excitement.
But in recent years there has been a reappraisal of the suburb, which has undergone a bit of a cultural renaissance and development boom.
Never more evident than in this luxurious two bedroom two bathroom apartment in the heart of Basso’s town centre, with lovely northerly views over Old Perth Road.
Normally you sacrifice a bit of space in an apartment, especially in the kitchen, but this has a super-sized one with lots of bench space and high-end stainless steel appliances.
The sense of space is enchanced by the high ceilings, neutral colour scheme and numerous north-facing windows, ensuring plenty of natural light.
And when you feel like some fresh air, but don’t want to get out of your pyjamas or maybe even your birthday suit, there’s a spacious balcony with enough room for a BBQ and a dining or lounge setting.
The apartment looks pristine with high-end finishes in all the living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms.
The main bedroom is especially impressive with a large walk-in robe.
The home includes ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning, separate built-in laundry, entrance hall, store rooms and two undercover secure car bays.
This 97sqm apartment is situated on the Old Perth Road, in the heart of Basso, with loads of cafes, restaurants and shops at your fingertips, and easy access to the local train station, parks and the Swan River.
The complex has only 40 apartments with secure intercom access and lifts.
Why not spread your wings and see what Bassendean has to offer; I’m sure the same apartment in the city would be about double the $400,000-odd asking price.
This abode could also be a good investment as the “inner-city” spreads further and further out, and we constantly reclassify where it begins and ends.
From high $400,000’s
