With two-levels of luxurious living and sweeping views of the Swan River and Perth city skyline, the penthouses at Habitat Residences are a rare delight.
Completed just last month, these two fresh Applecross top-floor homes are part of a $19 million development that additionally features a bespoke collection of 14 one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
Built by Mercedes Construction, both penthouses exude spacious and light-filled open-plan living enhanced by high-end elements such as engineered natural stone benchtops and flooring with acoustic underlay.
Inspired by comfortable living and privacy, the penthouses include two bedrooms with a shared bathroom and a master bedroom with an ensuite, all set across two zones to give the space needed for families with older children or intergenerational arrangements.
Downsizers, singles and professional couples would also be a great fit for the penthouse lifestyle, with the extra bedrooms easily transformed into home offices or workout or hobby rooms.
Baltinas Director Rebecca Frost said the three-bedroom, two-bathroom gems were a golden opportunity.
“Two-level penthouses are rare in Perth, especially those which serve up 6m-high ceilings and sweeping Perth city and Swan River views” she said.
“These have been thoughtfully designed to be built over levels three and four of the development, with stunning results and a generous amount of outdoor relaxation and entertaining space, rivalling a traditional home.
“Each penthouse has exclusive access to its own private rooftop terrace with magical, uninterrupted views.
“With calming light or sophisticated dark interior colour schemes available, both of these stunning penthouses are beautifully designed, with a focus on elegance and calming, stress-free living where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of the world yet also have it at your fingertips when you want it.”
The penthouses also offer a powder room, a balcony, a kitchen with energy-efficient stainless steel appliances, a laundry, two car bays and two storerooms, all enveloped in environmentally friendly design, including double-brick construction to lower heating and cooling costs.
Perched atop an elevated block, Habitat Residences is surrounded by multiple popular amenities including Ardross Street Café, dining, retail, shopping and transport options, and recreational delights such as Heathcote Cultural Precinct, South of Perth Yacht Club, Applecross Tennis Club, the waterfront Raffles Hotel and the Swan River.
