ONCE home to the West Australian Boot Company, this Federation/interwar building now consists of 18 residential apartments in a peaceful garden setting.
The building is a local icon and the exterior retains its unique sense of character with red brick pilasters and stucco parapet into which the company’s name is embossed.
It was converted into apartments in the late 1990s by the Giorgi Group, with architect Brian Klopper overseeing the project.
Selling agent Craig Boyanich said there had been strong demand from buyers who love the location – within walking distance of the CBD and close to the cultural hub of Northbridge and a host of restaurants, cafes and small bars.
“More importantly, being north of Newcastle Street, it is far enough from Northbridge that it enjoys a peaceful and quiet position,” he said.
This charming home is at the rear of the building.
It has an open-plan living area, kitchen, laundry and powder room on the ground floor.
Two bedrooms, both with built-in robes and their own ensuite with combined bath/shower, are upstairs.
The master bedroom has leafy garden views.
There is a courtyard at the front and back of the home.
The complex is secure and there is undercover parking for one car.
