THE hot-red Ducati caught my eye the minute I walked into this stunning North Coogee apartment, followed seconds later by a jaw-dropping moment as I took in the soaring open living area.
There’s enough room under the huge steel and timber staircase for two of the pulsating machines, but the other was sold recently, the vendor says.
Not a spot of oil marred the pristine white tiled floor, something I suspect is as much down to the love and care vested in the bike as the floor’s easy-clean durability.
The vendor bought the ground-floor apartment with the safety of expensive “toys” in mind.
On the southern end of North Coogee the two-bedroom apartment is a cavernous, light-filled space, with soaring ceilings up to the mezzanine bedroom, with its bank of louvres overlooking the living area.
The bedroom is huge, with a wall of glass overlooking natural bush and the ocean, a view only improved slightly by stepping onto the balcony.
Built-in robes flank a walkway to the swish ensuite, with its beautifully styled basin.
On the ground floor white tiled floors flow out through banks of floor-to-ceiling doors and windows to a huge alfresco area, where high walls ensure privacy, not to mention security.
There’s so much space here you could invite an entire motor bike team, and pit crew, over for a barbie.
A cooling dip before, or after eating, is as easy as climbing the timber stairs to a secure gate which opens onto the apartment block’s pool.
For those occasions requiring more refinement the kitchen is a stunner, with charcoal grey caesar stone benches and masses of cupboards and drawers including a double-pull-out pantry.
And you don’t really have to park in the living room, there’s secure parking for two vehicles at this exclusive 12 unit complex.
