HIS group of apartments on Edward Street, Osborne Park may not be Hollywood enough for Pistol and Boo, but they do offer very affordable living with style and panache—and a chance for new owners to stamp their personalities on a brand new abode.
With a pleasant, street-facing courtyard there’s even room for a couple of small Yorkshire terriers. But check first—you don’t want to fall foul of chief euthaniser Barnaby Joyce.
There are six remaining in this block of 10, including some on the second level.
Like its neighbours this two-bedroom ground floor example is a neat package, with crisp, clean lines and cream floor tiles. With floor-to-ceiling glass, the open living/dining/kitchen is bright and light, and whether it’s alfresco dining in splendid autumn sunshine, or entertaining in the cosy dining area, a brand new kitchen (with dishwasher) will make whipping up a meal as easy as slipping a couple of dogs past Australian quarantine.
Accessed down a gated passageway, the front door opens onto a compact entry, which in turn leads to the main bedroom, with a massive window onto an atrium garden ensuring plenty of light.
Making the most of available space the ensuite has an attractive curved-glass shower, as does the second bathroom.
Whether it’s those wanting to take advantage of the first home owner’s grant or investors, these apartments are well worth a look.
