In the world of retirement living, people use phrases like downsizing' or smaller living' and resign themselves to living in poky rooms with little natural light.
Only rarely is a contemporary, premium, generously proportioned retirement penthouse brought to market. Right now, we have exactly that opportunity on offer.
Apartment 806 at the legendary Drummond Place (operated by Australian Unity) has approximately 200 square metres of luxury living on the penthouse level.
The penthouse offers an open plan living area with plenty of space for designated dining and sitting rooms, a full house sized' luxury kitchen with integrated fridge, abundant storage and walk in pantry. There is a master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in robe, and two additional bedrooms (one currently used as a very comfortable two person study), bathroom and laundry. There are decorator nooks and crannies; a gorgeous winter garden courtyard which allows light to all the internal rooms as well as providing a lovely outdoor space that's protected from the wind; electronically controlled double blinds and top quality carpets and fittings.
Included is two secure underground car parking spaces with a generous size lock up storage cage.
