When we asked the neighbour Clive how long he’s lived in this building here’s what he said. "I’ve been living here for around 15 years, the other 2 neighbours in this part of the block have been here almost as long and the only one that’s rented has been leased to the same tenant for longer than 15 years."
There is a bit of road noise from Old South Head Rd the agent asked and to that he replied, "yes you do get a bit of road noise up the back of the block here but I’ve lived in quiet streets around Bondi and many a nights there are drunk back packers yelling and carrying on and this type of noise is much more disturbing than the road noise we get because you get used to it and after a surprisingly short while you don’t even notice it".
We asked him what he most loved about this location and complex to which he replied, "it’s an easy walk to the beach, shops and cafes, the bus stop is very handy and Bondi Junction is just a short walk too. It’s the best of both worlds, being at the beach with convenience".
Here’s what I as the agent have to say:
Because of the road noise you can also pick this place up for around $200,000 less than a similar apartment on a street without road noise but as Clive said you aren’t always free of late night random noise.
Stepping into this Bondi Beach apartment you will love the lime stained timber flooring that flows throughout.
The luxurious bathroom with bathtub and shower offer a sense of relaxation.
The master bedroom is oversized and provides a secret entry ensuite bathroom plus built in wardrobes.
As you walk down the hallway be surprised at how it opens up to a gourmet kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances and so much storage it’s easy to live a clutter free lifestyle.
The laundry is conveniently positioned inside a cupboard in the kitchen and who wants to spend much time in there anyway?
The kitchen has been opened up to present a wonderful open plan living space that looks into the green gardens and enjoys a private feeling.
It’s only when you open the balcony door you will start to hear the noise from the road but let’s face it, in winter you’ll have that shut and the reverse cycle heating on. In summer you’ll be at the beach or enjoying the beautiful Bondi lifestyle. When it’s hot you’ll also have the doors closed and air conditioning cooling things for sleep.
This is a great home owners opportunity for those that want the renovated apartment all done and are smart enough to save $200,000 off mortgage repayments with a minor negative that will disappear into the background after a few weeks like Clive said.
