IF all the pageantry on TV this week has got you in the mood for a royal residence, then why not do the next best thing and move into Royal Street in East Perth.
This three bedroom two bathroom abode is certainly luxurious and opulent; occupying the top floor of the boutique Royal East apartment block.
With 203sqm of living space there’s plenty of room, as well as two secure car bays ensuring parking will never be an issue.
With its polished wooden floors, heavy curtains and designer gas fireplace, the open plan lounge/dining/kitchen is certainly a place that catches your eye and says
“Hello, I’ve got cash!”
This apartment isn’t afraid to show off its wealth and luxury, but it’s not too over-the-top, and walks a tight rope between glamour and hubris.
There’s a pink glow from the gas fireplace reflecting off the polished wooden floors and a feature wall with huge dark greenish wall tiles, almost creating a jungle or cave feel.
It contrasts nicely with the bright spacious kitchen which has plenty of storage space and a large island/breakfast bar.
The main bedroom is opulence personified with the huge plush king bed inset with a massive mattress, meaning you’re high off the ground.
Great if you suffer from dust allergies, but just watch you don’t fall out of bed – it’s a long way down. This room has those lovely dark green/blue wall tiles again, adding a coolish subterranean glow to the room. Off to the side is a lovely hotel-like ensuite with a deep standalone tub and a bathroom with double vanities and a giant shower.
The bedroom also features a huge designer walk-in robe that has enough room to fit all my clothes in ten times over.
And when you feel like some fresh air just step out onto the north-facing corner balcony and enjoy views of the river, city skyline and the leafy Brook Street below.
The home includes ducted AC, laundry, Miele appliances and master cool integrated fridge, and quality carpets and wooden flooring throughout.
Situated a stones throw from Claisebrook Cove you are spoiled for choice for cafes, restaurants and pubs, and the CAT bus stop is literally outside your front door.
If you like to wear your glamour on your sleeve, this is the apartment for you.
