Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Residential -

VERY rarely does a res­i­dence such as this come on the mar­ket, with only six apart­ments in the tightly held com­plex.

Own­ers Martin and Judy, farm­ers from the Great South­ern, bought this Perth base in 2008 and are only the sec­ond own­ers of the home.

“We are also the last peo­ple to pur­chase in this com­plex; all apart­ments are owne­roc­cu­pied,” Judy said.

“The com­plex is very se­cure, with se­cu­rity codes needed to ac­cess the gate and front door.

“It also has a swim­ming pool and each apart­ment has its own lock­able store­room.”

The first-floor home has a wel­com­ing open-plan de­sign, with a lounge room and din­ing area that ex­tends eas­ily on to a north-fac­ing bal­cony with city glimpses.

“Hav­ing large slid­ing doors to the bal­conies on both the north and south-fac­ing ends of the house pro­vide views across Richard­son Park and to­wards the city,” Judy said.

“It also al­lows a cool­ing breeze to flow through the whole apart­ment in the evenings dur­ing sum­mer.”

The res­i­dence also has a huge pri­vate ter­race at the rear for al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing and three large bed­rooms, all with out­door ac­cess.

“Although the apart­ment was in good con­di­tion, we felt it needed mod­ernising, so in 2015 we re­placed the cab­i­net fronts in the kitchen with gloss soft­clos­ing doors to give them a more con­tem­po­rary style, and we con­verted some of the cup­boards into large draw­ers,” Judy said.

“We also com­pletely ren­o­vated the bath­room and en­suite with cus­tom cab­i­netry, new tiles and tap­ware, a heated towel rail, and a new toi­let and Es­sa­s­tone bench­tops in the en­suite.

“The floors were also retiled with the ex­cep­tion of the two main bed­rooms, which re­ceived new car­pet.”

The apart­ment also has split­sys­tem air­con­di­tion­ing and se­cure, shel­tered park­ing for two cars.

“Close to Mends and An­gelo streets means we are an easy walk to a va­ri­ety of restau­rants, the ferry and ameni­ties. Morn­ing walks along the river or to Kings Park are an­other pos­i­tive,” Judy said.
