Ingenious design

THIS eclectic apartment in White Gum Valley will challenge your idea of space and how it’s used.

On first viewing it’s a funky one-bedroom abode, in Minilya Avenue, with two sweeping living spaces.

But with much less effort than solving a Rubik’s cube, massive wall panels slide in a variety of directions to create alternate rooms.

Need a guest room? With barley a click or a clack, walls are rearranged to close off a living room to create a second bedroom.

The apartment has two front doors and the newly created guest bedroom has its own entry, so visitors can come and go without disturbing their hosts.

On cold winter nights larger areas can be closed off to keep things cosy, or slide the panels back and enjoy the sheer vastness of the apartment.

A bank of windows across the entire frontage offers pleasant views of a leafy valley and the stunning ocean.

Sunsets from this vantage are pure magic any time of the year.

Shabby-chic polished concrete floors in the living areas look great, and are low maintenance.

The generous kitchen has floating cupboards for easy cleaning, and there’s a sweep of bench area to work on.

But with a fantastic local cafe on the ground floor you may be eating out more than in.

A cute study nook and a laundry-in-a-cupboard front the huge main bedroom, which has a walk-in-robe.

Sparkling white, with golden timber floors, the generous en suite has an ultra-deep bath, and separate shower.

Have it semi-open, or like the rest of the apartment slide a wall across for total privacy.

One of three in a retro-60s apartment block, this fantastic abode is located above commercial premises.

One of the street-level offices is up for sale, and this is a great opportunity to work so close to home you could abseil to work.

There’s a handy deli on the street, and a swag of shops, a pub and a couple of cafes within walking distance.

Fremantle is a 10-minute drive away, or jump on the bus on South Street and leave the cars in the apartment’s two secure parking bays.
