THE owner of this studio apartment has a long association with Subiaco and has seen the area change significantly.
“Growing up, my father operated a deli on the corner of Heytesbury Road and Rokeby Road and we regularly played in the railway shunting yards where the St Brigid’s site now stands,” he said.
The home is in The Grange complex and was built in 2000.
The owner bought it in 2006 after returning home to Subiaco from many years working in New Zealand.
While it is conveniently close to the train station, the owner said it was an enclosed world and the trains could not be heard.
“I love the feeling one gets when you walk into the apartment from the internal garden courtyard – very European,” he said.
The home is built over two levels.
The first floor includes a spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen area that opens to a balcony with a view over the railway precinct.
Cathedral-style ceilings create a feeling of space and a feature arched window lets in plenty of light.
Upstairs there is a bedroom that receives northern light, a bathroom and separate toilet.
Other features include a store room, reverse-cycle airconditioning and secure undercover parking for one car.
There is also a small terrace at the front of the apartment that looks over the complex’s gardens.
The home is for sale fully furnished and equipped and the owner said it was a good investment at this time in the Perth property cycle.
The well-presented complex has attractive landscaped gardens, an indoor pool and secure entry.
It is in walking distance of the Rokeby Road dining and entertainment precinct and close to parkland and St John of God Hospital.
