Sitting neatly on the seventh and final floor of a boutique apartment complex in East Perth, this penthouse will offer luxurious, easy living before you even step through the door.

There is an air of exclusivity on the top floor, with peace of mind provided thanks to the restricted access to this level.

Ray White South Perth Principal Jannine Blum said the property would be most appealing for someone who wanted to be close to the city and enjoyed living by the river and everything it entailed, as well as someone who might need a low-maintenance Perth base.

“It’s all about lifestyle and easy living at this apartment,” she said. “With two car bays, it can be a base for our buyers from the country, or be used as a low-maintenance, lock-up-and-leave home for those who love inner-city living whilst still being close to the river and enjoying the outdoors.”

The main area of the penthouse flows across a capacious open-plan layout consisting of the kitchen, dining and lounge area.

With sleek stone benchtops, there are high-quality appliances weaved throughout, including a Miele integrated dishwasher, an induction cooktop and a oven.

Building on this sleek expression is the glass splashback, which spans across the whole working area of the kitchen.

There is also an array of storage options on offer overhead and under-bench to make your cooking endeavours a breeze.

Amplifying the sense of space further, the living area is overlooked by a recessed ceiling, with this whole zone being adorned with a mix of crisp and natural tones.

Leading out from this area is a balcony, which provides sweeping views of the city and all that surrounds it and ample space to entertain a small group of people.

With this outdoor zone sure to provide many entertainment opportunities, there is another section available within the complex that Ms Blum said was a standout.

“A standout aspect is the barbecue area on the penthouse level, which is only accessible for penthouse owners, so if you’re an entertainer you’re in luck,” she said.

The apartment’s floor plan flows across a practical layout – the master suite is cleverly positioned at the rear for privacy, offering a retreat feel.

With plush carpets, the master bedroom leads through a walk-through robe before reaching the ensuite. Featuring stone benchtops and floor-to-ceiling Versace tiles, this zone will make you feel like you are at a hotel resort.

In the same vein, the guest bedroom is just as luxurious, with plush carpets, built-in robes and floor-to-ceiling sheer curtains.

To keep the temperature ideal throughout the year, ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning circulates throughout.

Looking outside of the apartment, there is a downstairs foyer with a toilet, a kitchenette and a lounge area, providing yet another base for socialising.

In addition to this, you will be able to keep fit and healthy without even leaving the building, thanks to the onsite gymnasium.

Glancing beyond the building, Ms Blum said there were many wonderful places to visit that were only minutes away from the apartment complex.

“The great thing about the location of the complex is that you’re central to everything such as the Perth CBD, Optus Stadium, Crown Perth, Trinity and Mercedes colleges, and Gloucester Park,” she said.
