IT’S been a decade since an Applecross apartment of this size hit the market, according to selling agent Shelley Clayton.
Spanning the top floor of a boutique complex just a short stroll from the Swan River and South of Perth Yacht Club, the penthouse offers some 450sq m of luxurious internal and terrace living.
Mrs Clayton said the sheer amount of room, including three balconies, made it feel more like a house.
“If someone is downsizing from a substantial home, they won’t feel compromised for space and feel,” she said.
“Plus there is 100sq m of private garaging for four cars and an ample storage area – that’s bigger than most houses, let alone apartments.”
The views also make the penthouse a standout, with many stunning aspects of the Swan River, Kings Park, Perth CBD and hills to enjoy.
Extensively renovated within the past three years, the home showcases lavish finishes, making it just as impressive throughout.
The floorplan includes a huge open-plan living, dining and kitchen zone featuring blackbutt floors, gas fireplace in a striking stone-clad wall, Miele appliances, butler’s pantry and servery window.
This area seamlessly connects to the largest balcony, which has an outdoor kitchen plus built-in barbecue, not to mention the penthouse’s best vistas.
A large home office with extensive cabinetry could be transformed into a second living space.
There are three beautifully appointed bedrooms including a master plus walk-in robe, spa ensuite and views.
Mrs Clayton said the penthouse, in a complex of just seven homes, would appeal to every buyer.
“It will attract professional couples and downsizers, but due to its generous size, families can also enjoy it as much as a house without the upkeep,” she said.
“The penthouse is also perfect for retirees as it is all one level and easily accessible via an elevator into its own private lobby.”
Mrs Clayton said Applecross had always been considered the premium suburb south of the river but the Canning Bridge Precinct’s developments, current and future, would make it an even better hub for restaurants, shopping and entertaining.
“And it’s only a few minutes’ walk to the river and the train station and less than 10 minutes’ drive into the city,” she said.
