1/84 Rutland Avenue, Lathlain
3 story townhouse – Sale from $575,000 / Rent $450/week
The real estate agent describes this home as follows:
This boutique development is one of Perth’s greenest and nicest. With just two townhouses and five apartments, of varying designs and sizes, the architect designed complex has a real focus on sustainability and community feel. It follows in the footsteps of The Green Swing’s national award-winning development nearby.
Your home offers generous living over three floors. On the ground floor is the open plan kitchen/meals/ living area complete with high ceilings. Upstairs are two double size bedrooms plus a separate retreat area that would make a great study, a place to chill or for a fold-out bed for those extra visitors. What is special is the third bedroom, located in the loft and accessible by a fixed staircase.
The convenient location invites you to walk, cycle or catch the train. The complex is pedestrian oriented and has a shared bike storage facility. The Victoria Park railway station is within easy walking distance. If you cross over the pedestrian bridge you are a few streets from the heart of Victoria Park and its very popular and vibrant Albany Highway precinct. Nearby are Lathlain’s Kettle Cafe and the newly opened Laika Coffee as well as great dining & shopping on Archer Street. The city and river are within easy cycling distance or you can catch a train and be there in minutes. Even the car parking is future-proofed for electric vehicles.
At home, along with your own courtyard, you are surrounded by quality open and green spaces including a shared native and productive garden. Why maintain your own backyard when you can share the load and the rewards?
The whole development achieves excellent energy efficiency and life cycle assessment results. The design makes the most of natural sunlight and ventilation and provides for appropriate shading. Together with a focus on sensible materials, it contributes to a comfortable, better indoor environment for you.
