These twin North Coogee apartments are so new the gardener was still putting the final touches to the huge fish ponds and landscaped gardens of the ground floor entry.
Stepping around a mound of dirt, and a pile of native violets, I headed to the lift to second level apartments 11 and 8, two of 17 luxury abodes in the two/three level block.
Number 11 faces north, with ocean views that include Carnac and Rottnest Islands, while 8 is at the rear with a balcony overlooking green open space.
Both are spacious, three-bedroom/two-bathroom domains with massive floor-to-ceiling windows that flood every room with bright, winter sunshine, reflecting off the lovely golden-timber floors.
The living spaces are cavernous, one with an ocean-facing balcony with nothing between you and the view but plate glass, while the other has a larger balcony and greener view.
The kitchens are peas in a pod, albeit white rather than green, with white walls, cupboards and benchtops, including an island one, in caesar stone.
Coupled with top-of-the range Smeg appliances these are bright spaces designed for today’s fast paced lifestyle.
The main bedrooms are massive, with equally large ensuites and built-in-robes.
For the energetic the block has its own gym.
Or you could don the togs and head down to South Beach for a swim.
These modern apartments are metres from the beach and the Fig and South Beach cafes.
Or jump on the CAT bus and you’re in the heart of Fremantle in next to no time.
