LOCATION, location, location…
It’s an old cliche but it really is the case with this fantastic one bedroom one bathroom apartment in South Perth.
Situated on the 18th floor of the recently built Aurelia complex, this apartment enjoys a fantastic panorama of the Swan River and Melville Waters.
It’s just a short stroll to the foreshore, where you can enjoy leisurely walks along the river or dust down your bike and hit the cycle path that loops through East Perth, along the Causeway and over the Narrows Bridge back to South Perth.
After all that exercise you’ll be wanting a bite to eat and there’s plenty of restaurants, pubs and cafes on the nearby Mends Street including The Windsor Hotel, Atomic and Thai Orchid.
Or go a bit further afield to Angelo Street – just back from the foreshore – a burgeoning hub of small bars, cafes and restaurants.
If you work in the city, then the horrible drive or lengthy bus journey will be a thing of the past – just hop on the ferry at the bottom of Mends Street and you’re literally in the CBD in 10 minutes with no traffic jams or cancelled trains to worry about.
But what about the actual apartment?
It’s a stylish number with the light wooden floors, neutral colour scheme ad high ceilings creating a breezy sense of space.
This feeling is enhanced by the sliding glass doors leading to the balcony, which has plenty of room for a Weber and a cafe setting.
The open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area has enough space for a large dining table and a big couch and TV.
The Voice really likes the stylish kitchen – cleverly inset into the wall to space space, it features a lovely marble splashback, stainless steel appliances and a mix of natural wood and white cupboards and drawers.
The bedroom has a walk-in robe and is a decent size with sliding glass doors leading to the balcony.
The bathroom is very nice and has that hotel-finish look with enough space for a washing machine and dryer in the corner, meaning no more trips to the laundrette.
The apartment includes double glazed windows, solid timber floors, ducted reverse cycle air con and a secure car bay in the underground car park.
And you can also enjoy the resort-style facilities in the Aurelia complex, including solar heated swimming pool with poolside cabana, open air BBQ area, sauna and well-appointed gym.
