A $27.5 million penthouse in Perth, Western Australia, is touted to set a new record for the nation’s most expensive apartment.

The huge residence spans 1,900 square metres across two floors, making it the biggest apartment in Australia, featuring six bedroom, eight bathrooms as well as eight parking spots.

The hefty price tag also includes a lap pool, steam room, outdoor spa and gym, as well as incredible views of the city and Claisebrook Cove.

The current record for the country’s most expensive apartment is a penthouse in Melbourne tower, Australia 108, which was sold to a Chinese businessman last year for $25 million.

Just behind is the Bondi Pacific penthouse which was sold for $21 million in 2014.

The WA penthouse is being listed with Brent Compton of Ray White South Perth.
