AU Perth home has movie star appeal
Property Here - Saturday, April 13, 2013
A LUXURY apartment where Hollywood star Ewan McGregor has been filming his new movie in Perth is up for grabs for $2.7m.
Buyers keen for a bit of stardust to rub off on their purchase will not only get stunning ocean views from the South Fremantle apartment but the kudos that the actor famous for his roles in Star Wars, Trainspotting and Moulin Rougen hung out there.
Scenes from the filming will be immortalised in McGregor's upcoming movie Son of a Gun.
The popular star enjoyed the vista from Apartment 16 at The Islands complex, by all accounts.
"We loved our time filming at Islands, the view from apartment sixteen was stunning and it was in such a great location with Fremantle just down the road,'' said a spokesperson for the Son of a Gun production.
"The apartment was always filled with natural light which made filming easy and we certainly never got sick of standing on the balcony looking at the water!''
Stocklands developers handed over the apartment to the star and crew to become part of Australian film history as a location for the much-anticipated psychological crime thriller.
The film is set for release in 2014 and will be the first full-length feature film for acclaimed short filmmaker and Pemberton-born writer-director Julius Avery, who is touted as Australia's next "break out'' director.
Stocklands general manager WA residential Col Dutton said it was an honour to be involved with such a high-profile film.
"The three-bedroom apartment chosen for Son of a Gun, has floor-to-ceiling windows in both the living room and master bedroom, providing 180-degree views of Carnac Island all the way up to Fremantle,'' Mr Dutton said.
"t was the perfect location to showcase the iconic WA coastline to movie-goers across the world.''
More than 70 per cent of the apartments and beach houses at the Islands development have now sold.
