Small Complex With Big Features
Feature stone cladding, neutral render and sleek lines will ensure this new apartment development stands out on the Shenton Park streetscape, a contemporary departure from the traditional character homes lining the sought-after suburb’s streets.
Set opposite Rosalie Primary School, a few doors down from the Shenton Village shopping centre and a short walk to Lake Jualbup, the complex of four two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments offers convenience and style, according to selling agent Niki Peinke. “The finishes have all been kept very neutral but high quality, both inside and out,” Ms Peinke said. “It is a complex that offers choice because you have the street-facing apartments and the rear-facing apartments with the northerly aspect to enjoy winter sun.” “It is a small, lock-and-leave development, which is really nice because there are lots of big developments going at the moment that, because of their size, I think become really impersonal.”
“It is only a few doors down from the local shops so you don’t have to get in your car to get the necessities and you’re close to the hospitals, Subiaco, the city, bus routes and UWA.” Ms Peinke said the development would suit professional singles or couples who might work in the CBD or downsizers looking for a near-city pad.
It was designed by Mario Tascone, of Tascone Design Team, and is being developed by the Winthrop Unit Trust – a small developer that has done several boutique developments around the Nedlands, Subiaco and West Leederville area, Ms Peinke said. Each apartment will include low-maintenance neutral tiling to the living zones, carpets in the bedroom, essastone benchtops, intercom entry, ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning, glass splashbacks, big balconies and two secure car bays. The ground-floor apartment has sold but three upper-level apartments are still available for $789,000. Construction is expected to start in the coming months, with completion expected mid-next year.
