IT is hard to believe, but this building was a functioning flour mill until 1991.
It was converted to apartments in the late 1990s.
The location was one of the key factors behind the owner’s purchase of this apartment.
Selling agent Jody Fewster said it was close to Haining Avenue where the owner lived for 50 years.
“When she made the decision to downsize from the family home, the family looked at so many villas, apartments and townhouses in Cottesloe, where she wanted to stay,” she said.
“The things that struck a chord with the Mill was it’s spaciousness, open living plan, north-facing loggia, all one level and a big tick was the security.”
The complex has secure remote-controlled entry for cars and a gated pedestrian entrance with key/intercom access.
This home is on level one, with just three other apartment, and can be accessed via a lift or stairs.
Inside there is an open-plan living/dining area and kitchen with granite benchtops, Smeg oven and cooktop, dishwasher, plenty of storage and a large breakfast bar.
Sash windows offer tree top views and the living space opens to a north-facing balcony.
There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The king-sized master bedroom has built-in robes, a study nook and an ensuite with a bath set under a sash window letting you soak while looking out to the peppermint trees.
It shares a balcony with bedroom two.
Other features include parking for two cars and two store rooms.
The charming home is in walking distance of schools, the train station, beach, shops and river foreshore.
