But if they knew what was inside one of its residences they might change their mind about taking a moment to soak it all in.
A jaw-dropping renovation has transformed the one-bedroom apartment at 5/20 Phillipps Street, which is on the market with a $490,000 to $540,000 price guide.
Tired and dated just months ago, the residence is now more modern, light and open.
Owner Matt Causer, who revitalised the apartment through his business Eco Constructions, said he had a plan from the moment he saw it.
“As soon as I walked in the door I knew what I was going to do,” he said.
“I’m thrilled with the outcome, it’s amazing, I really love it.”
Mr Causer said the renovation, which included knocking out and moving walls, took about four months of intense work to complete.

The apartment is split into two zones – the main bedroom and a separate study area with loft are at the front and an open kitchen, living and dining area that opens onto a courtyard is at the rear.
A stone feature wall, which includes a remote-controlled gas fireplace, and the kitchen’s royal blue cabinets are highlights of the home.
“I really love the kitchen,” Mr Causer said.
“Everyone who sees it says, ‘that’s amazing!’”
While he loved the apartment, Mr Causer said a change in circumstances meant he had to sell it.
“We intentionally bought it as a weekender – the whole idea was to have somewhere by the beach on the weekend,” he said.
“It’s a great spot, it’s literally 150m to the bottom of the road and beach.”
Selling agent Cynthia Sajkunovic, of Ouwens Casserly Real Estate, said whoever bought the apartment was going to be very fortunate.
“It’s luxe to the absolute enth degree,” she said.
