Penthouse bigger than a house site
A wise use of storage spaceSales agent at Calibre Real Estate, Marlene Baker, said the size, convenience, outlook and livability of the penthouse combine to make it a very attractive proposition.The sellers bought the penthouse in 2009 so they could take full advantage of their retirement.“They used to live in Clayfield and were looking for something easy and low maintenance that they could basically lock up and go cruising.”Of course if you decide to stay home instead, you’ll probably feel like you’re on holiday anyway.“The balcony looks directly to the city and up and down the river — it’s spectacular there in the evenings,” Ms Baker said. Secure lift access and Christmas gift storage areaWhile your average apartment can feel cloistered, you’ll have no such concerns here.The main bedroom is its own retreat with a study, dressing room, ensuite and balcony ensuring there’s a getaway for the new buyer. Your private main-bedroom suiteThe layout and four private car spaces would even suit a modern family, said Ms Baker.“I have a family (interested) … they have three teenage kids.“They thought the teenage kids don’t need as much outdoor yard space. It’s convenient for them and there’s enough parking for all of their cars.”If entertaining is your style, then guests won’t have pay to park either.“At Portside there’s parking underground which you’d ordinarily have to pay for, but if you have a large party of guests then each of them can get a pass to go down and park in there in Portside as well — that’s part of the Penthouse deal.”Ms Baker said she’s enjoyed having the chance to sell the apartment, and it seems the owner’s lifestyle is influencing her as well.“The owners do love their cruises so whenever we talk, we’re always talking about where they’re thinking of going next. I said to my own kids, ‘When we sell it, we’ll book a cruise.’”The penthouse is for sale now by private treaty through Calibre Real Estate Brisbane.
