305/84 River Esplanade, Docklands

That tenants often end up becoming owner-occupiers of apartments in the Yarra’s Edge precinct is testament to the location and facilities.

This complex is part of Mirvac’s development of residential towers in Docklands, and shares access to RekDek, an innovative facility of gym, pool, spa, sauna, steam room and sun deck. Walk along South Wharf to the DFO, further to Southbank, or even into the CBD. This is city living without the hustle and bustle.

Entry to apartment No.305 is via the tiled open-plan kitchen, meals and living area. A wall of windows and glass sliding doors floods this space in sunshine and draws all focus to the vista across the marina to the city. Take in the view from the long balcony; imagine the city lights at night.

A stone island bench and stainless-steel appliances, including a Smeg oven and cooktop and a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher, make for a sophisticated kitchen. There’s a European laundry at one end.

There are two bedrooms. The large main has two sets of mirrored built-in wardrobes and a double-vanity en suite. It, too, is naturally light with a city outlook. The main bathroom acts as an en suite to the second bedroom, also with mirrored built-in wardrobes.

Two secure car spots come with the apartment, a bonus for high-rise living.
