River, city and Hills views in top location
Penthouse apartment offers best of Perth living. By NATALIE HORDOV
IT IS all about the views – and the superconvenient location – in this penthouse apartment.
“More than half the rooms overlook the city to the Hills, and Swan River from Heirisson Island, South Perth along the river over as far as Attadale,” said the owner.
“Looking down on the Narrows Bridge, watching both boating and freeway activities is always of interest.
“And barbecues on the balcony are always a hit due to the backdrop.”
The home is one of two apartments on the sixth floor of the quiet, secure The Terraces complex.
Built in the 1990s, it has a spacious, flowing design.
There is a large, formal living area that opens to the balcony.
The kitchen, with granite benchtops and lacquered cupboards is between the meals/family room and dining room, which also opens to the balcony.
There are two bedrooms, a bathroom, study and a powder room near the entry.
The master bedroom is on the opposite side of the house, allowing the owners to have guests stay and retain their privacy.
It has balcony access, a dressing room and ensuite with bath and marble benchtops.
The owner bought the home 19 years ago and liked its proximity to the best health services in WA.
It is also a 10-minute walk to William Street in the city, and a three-minute walk into Kings Park.
It is a two-minute drive to the CBD, a short drive to Subiaco, and 20 minutes to Cottesloe and City beaches. ■
