Perfectly and peacefully positioned on the fringe of the city and just moments from China Town and restaurants in the busy new William Street precinct right in the heart of Northbridge, this stunning two bedroom two bathroom sustainable-design warehouse apartment graces the upper level of the economical Square One building, amongst the beautiful London Plane trees on leafy Money Street.
This impressive dual-level residence finds itself nestled in the fully-restored and State Heritage-listed 1943 Mackay’s Aerated Waters Factory, with the focal point of the development featuring a resident gymnasium, as well as a rooftop garden that overlooks a sunken courtyard with a trickling water feature and an urban orchard – a water-wise and mostly-edible garden. Both bedrooms are king-sized, including an upstairs master loft with its own study nook, high ceilings, split-system air-conditioning, mirrored built-in wardrobes and a private ensuite bathroom with a shower, toilet and stone vanity.
Downstairs, an immaculate kitchen with electric cooking appliances and sparkling stone bench tops and splashbacks is incorporated into a modern open-plan living and dining area that is carpeted for comfort and extends out to a fabulous enclosed alfresco balcony, bringing the outside in whilst offering low-maintenance entertaining with city views and a pleasant west-facing tree-lined aspect through its sublime bi-fold louvered shutters. The luxurious main bathroom doubles as a laundry and there is a single allocated car bay for the unit within the secure underground car park, along with a four-square-metre (approx.) storeroom.
There is also intercom access from both levels, as well as enough room to park a bike within your car bay, whilst a PV system (supplying solar power to the individual and communal units) and the use of rainwater ensures that you are able to kick back with ongoing savings to your electricity and water bills. A serene pond in the centre of the complex puts the finishing touches on what truly is a special property.
Whether you are down-sizing or utilising the apartment as a very astute investment, you will not be disappointed by its exceptional inner-city location, also very close to public transport and Mount Lawley’s vibrant Beaufort Street entertainment strip. This is as good as it gets!
