ARE we heading for another global economic crisis?
The soaring cost of living is battering consumers around the world with the inflation rate in the UK hitting a record high this month and the pound tumbling in value.
With all this fiscal gloom in mind, Voice Estate has unearthed another budget gem.
This two bedroom one bathroom Maylands abode is on the market for $299,000.
And don’t worry it’s not on a busy highway with no setback where you have to wear ear muffs to get some sleep.
It’s situated in an attractive apartment complex on Peninsula Road, just a few streets back from the Swan River foreshore, Bardon Park and the Maylands Yacht Club.
I know what you’re thinking – for that price it’s going to be tiny and a bit tatty around the edges.
Well it’s the exact opposite – a very decent sized apartment with a spacious modern kitchen.
It’s an absolute cracker with lovely speckled white benchtops, enhancing the sense of space, and loads of storage in the sleek glossy cupboards and drawers.
The flat is located on the top floor, so you have lovely views of the treetops and a buffer from any noise below.
The main bedroom is spacious with built-in robes and plenty of room for a queen bed. The wide windows usher in lots of natural light with peaceful views of the treetops.
The second bedroom has enough space for a computer desk if you work from home.
But the real bonus with this flat is the wide and long balcony with enough space to accomodate a couch, cafe setting and BBQ.
It overlooks a lovely thatch of trees, bushes and shrubs, making it a great spot for a coffee or for some sunset drinks with friends before going out.
The combined bathroom/laundry is not going to win any awards, but it’s clean, bright and functional with enough space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, ensuring no more annoying trips to the laundrette or washing lines in the house and on the balcony.
The location is great and the Voice would be taking advantage of all those cycle paths beside the river and then come night make the short trip to all the cafes, bars and restaurants on Eighth Avenue in Maylands.
This would be a great home for a first time buyer or someone looking to slow down and enjoy a quiet lifestyle close to the river.
