Australians are notoriously crazy about property – and also love a good deal.

That might be why this one-bedroom apartment in 6/45 York Street Richmond, Victoria has captured the attention of the nation this week.

The property listing is at the top of realestate.com.au’s most-viewed homes going for auction this week, and it’s not hard to see why.

Although the interior looks straightforward enough, it’s the outward appearance that has people stopping in their tracks.

Faintly reminiscent of cubist or minimalist architecture, the apartment has a cube-like black and white frontage with a square metal frame that is encourages wall gardens, mixed with warm wood and red brick tones.

The shrubbery at the front adds a touch of greenery and another burst of colour to the otherwise angular visage.

The inside is cosy, with carpet floors and a generous courtyard lined with pot plants.
