On Wednesday, 9 September at 6:00 pm an unusual auction will be held at LJ Hooker Auctions HQ, 182-200 City Walk in Civic, as the proceeds will be donated to Beyond Blue, the Cancer Council and the RSPCA.

The owners of the apartment used a bequest to ensure the money went to these good causes, so not only will the winning bidder be the proud new owner of a great apartment, but they’ll be helping people and animals in need.

With a price guide of $345,000-plus, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment at 60/23 Aspinal Street in Watson is centrally located with resort-style facilities. Karelia Park apartment owners have access to beautiful park-like grounds, with communal facilities including tennis courts, a saltwater swimming pool, a games room and a barbeque area.

The apartment would make an ideal first home for a couple, or for downsizers wanting a smaller, more manageable home.

The home has both front and rear balconies, is north facing ensuring the apartment is light and bright, and lets the warm winter sun stream in.

The spacious living room is north-facing and has floor to ceiling glass.

The kitchen/living is open plan, while the dining room is separate, and the floorplan provides plenty of room for living. The master bedroom is enormous, and currently houses two double beds easily. There will be plenty of room for a home office or study area, or just a pleasant private sitting area with just one bed in it. The ensuite is spacious and there is a built-in robe, and windows overlook the balcony, and the well-established gardens.

The second bedroom is spacious, with a built-in robe and access to the family bathroom. The balconies, both front and rear, will be ideal for entertaining in spring and summer, for alfresco dining, or for catching up with friends.

The home has split system reverse-cycle airconditioning and a secure basement car park with direct apartment access.

The kitchen has all modern conveniences, and is connected with the living room.

LJ Hooker Sales Agent Andrew Grenfell said while the home is currently tenanted, and would make an ideal investment property, it would also be a great buy for a first home buyer, or downsizers.

“It’s a two-bedroom apartment in an established apartment block with beautiful gardens in Watson, which is a sought after suburb,” said Mr Grenfell, “and while it’s currently tenanted, the lease will end shortly and the new owners will be able to move in, or continue to lease the home.

“It’s also wonderful to know that the proceeds of the sale will be helping out those who are experiencing hard times, whether from mental health issues or cancer, and the RSPCA,” Mr Grenfell said.

“It really is an apartment with a heart.”
