ONE as­pect that hasn’t changed in the 12 years ven­dor Chris­tine Odell has owned her apart­ment is the “nice lit­tle spot that has a gap in the trees so you get this beau­ti­ful beach view”.

The ocean is vis­i­ble from through­out the res­i­dence, which oc­cu­pies an en­tire floor of the As­pect res­i­den­tial build­ing.

“It just en­com­passes you in this gor­geous haven, you can watch whales go past,” Ms Odell said. “I’m up and out on the beach ev­ery morn­ing be­fore 6am.”

A bal­cony lead­ing out from the mas­ter suite also of­fers a lux­u­ri­ous ocean­front van­tage point, decked out with a spa.

Ms Odell be­gan to ren­o­vate the apart­ment in July, gut­ting it and start­ing fresh with black butt floor­ing, stone kitchen and bath­room, new car­pet, tim­ber walls and light­ing be­fore list­ing the apart­ment to ex­pand her prop­erty port­fo­lio.

“It’s for sale at the higher end of the mar­ket so you have to do things well,” Ms Odell said.

“Ev­ery fin­ish is top qual­ity, I wanted to keep up that stan­dard.”

The ren­o­va­tion co­in­cided with a re­vamp of the build­ing’s ex­te­rior and most of the seven other apart­ments fol­lowed suit.

“We’d just painted the ex­te­rior and did some beau­ti­ful tiles around the pool, one of the other own­ers has green thumbs so did the gar­dens,” she said.

“It’s kind of like hav­ing your own home.”
