OWNER Brett Wilkins says this apartment is in an unbelievable location.
“We have Steve’s restaurant and bar next door and within a five-minute walk there is the Broadway shopping centre and multiple shops and restaurants,” he said.
The home is also metres from the foreshore and close to walking and cycle paths.
Mr Wilkins has lived there for 10 years and was attracted by the location, along with the boutique nature and high quality of the development.
“It’s perfect to live in,” he said.
“There is only one other unit on our floor and while it is near lots of activity, it is unbelievably quiet.”
The home has a light and airy open-plan living/dining/kitchen area with floorboards.
The kitchen has integrated Miele appliances, stone benchtops and plenty of storage.
The living space opens to a balcony with built-in barbecue and heating, and views looking out over the complex’s pool to the river.
“It’s our favourite place,” Mr Wilkins said.
“Not only do we get the views, but can we close the louvres to protect ourselves from the wind.”
There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The master has a walk-in robe and large ensuite with bath, shower and double vanity unit.
Bedroom two has built-in robes, while a spacious study with built-in robes could easily be used as a third bedroom.
Selling agent Bev Heymans said the Esplanade Apartments complex was the “go-to” for local downsizers wishing to stay in the area they loved.
It has a resort-style swimming pool, fully equipped gym and landscaped gardens with communal herb/vegetable gardens.
The apartment could make a great investment for someone contemplating downsizing at a later date, as Mr Wilkins is happy to rent it back for two years and pay the strata fees.
