Offering the diversity and convenience of inner-city living without the feeling of being hemmed-in, this modern apartment’s exceptional location presents home buyers or investors with a perfect entry-point into the Brisbane market.
Positioned in the resort-style ‘Cathedral Place’ complex with its grand entry foyer and tropical landscaped grounds, residents will find themselves immersed in the ultimate urban existence. Shops, cafes and fine restaurants sit at the base of the building, the picturesque Centenary Place gardens are directly across the road and it’s a 6-minute walk to the CBD, the dynamic ‘Valley’ lifestyle precinct or the glorious Brisbane riverfront!
Featuring a spacious open-plan design on level 1 of the Westminster Tower, the apartment is enhanced by a bright north-east orientation and lush treetop outlooks. With reverse cycle air-conditioning for year-round comfort, the living area encompasses a well-configured kitchen with gas cooktop and dishwasher, while floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors lead out to the private 21sqm entertaining balcony.
There are two similar-sized bedrooms with built-ins, including one with direct access onto the balcony, while the other has been thoughtfully designed with louvred shutters for additional light and airflow. Serviced by a generous central bathroom with integrated laundry and separate toilet, the apartment also features secure intercom access and an allocated secure parking space.
Residents are treated to an array of first-class recreation options without even setting foot outside the complex! Lagoon-style pools ripple beside a palm-fringed sandy beach; there’s green lawn and a BBQ entertaining area; while the spa, sauna and gymnasium are all impeccably maintained by onsite management.
Currently leased at $435 per week until December 2016, the property has already proven a solid low-maintenance investment. Alternatively, capitalise on the short supply of hotels in the area by placing the apartment in the short-term rental pool; with rooms in the complex regularly receiving between $180-230 per night.
LOCATION: In addition to the apartment’s unique proximity to both the CBD and Fortitude Valley, the nearby Chinatown, Queen Street Mall and the Brunswick and James Street precincts all spoil residents for choice when it comes to shopping, dining and entertainment. Boasting a ‘City Cycle’ station directly outside the building, bus transport just footsteps away and an easy stroll to the Riverside Ferry or train station, the car can be left at home when travelling to universities, South Bank’s cultural precinct or beyond. Meanwhile, arterial roads promise swift access to Brisbane Airport and the north/south Coasts.
