AN ex­clu­sive Air Apart­ments pent­house of­fers pre­mier apart­ment liv­ing and an un­sur­passed level of pres­tige, says ven­dor Stephen Nor­ris. Mr Nor­ris has owned the pent­house with de­vel­oper and busi­ness part­ner Gor­don Pickard ever since they de­vel­oped the apart­ment com­plex eight years ago and says the first thing you no­tice when you en­ter is the space.

‘‘There are very high ceil­ings and it’s got sec­tions of the ground floor open­ing up into the sec­ond floor, so we’ve got a huge vol­ume and panoramic views look­ing north to­wards the city and park­lands, Ade­laide to the west and the Hills to the east,’’ he says.

‘‘It’s a chang­ing view dur­ing the dif­fer­ent sea­sons and, with the way the park­lands are used for the dif­fer­ent events, you’re al­ways watch­ing some­thing hap­pen­ing so it’s never a dull view.’’

The home fea­tures three bed­rooms, all with en­suites and Mr Nor­ris says the mas­ter suite is sim­ply huge.

‘‘The mas­ter runs right across the whole width of the unit with a huge en­suite at one end and a walk-in robe at the other,’’ he says.

The kitchen fea­tures top-end Miele ap­pli­ances, an is­land bench and an at­tached but­ler’s pantry with wine stor­age and joins an open-plan din­ing and en­ter­tain­ing area that opens to large bal­conies.

‘‘It’s got a huge bench­top that is over­sized and we’ve had over 100 peo­ple up there and it wasn’t crowded, it’s just fan­tas­tic for en­ter­tain­ing,’’ Mr Nor­ris says. He says no ex­pense was spared on the apart­ment’s fea­tures.

‘‘We didn’t cut any cor­ners and have full mar­ble tiling to all the en­suites and we’ve got par­quetry floor­ing to the main ground floor area and a mar­ble bench­top to the kitchen area, so ev­ery­thing was the best we could buy,’’ he says.

Mr Nor­ris says the apart­ment com­plex’s ameni­ties in­clude a ten­nis court, out­door pool, in­door 25 m heated pool, spa, sauna, theatre room, func­tion room, party room and base­ment park­ing.

‘‘There are only six pent­houses in the Air Apart­ments and this is one of the big­gest so this cer­tainly ranks as one of the best apart­ments in Ade­laide,’’ Mr Nor­ris says.

‘‘I’ll miss the pres­tige of liv­ing in such a beau­ti­ful home – it’s a mag­nif­i­cent piece of real es­tate and it will be very hard to re­place.

‘‘You’re five min­utes from every­where and can walk to the city.’’
