WCF REST: How to get an IP address of a request

It seems to be quite difficult to find the IP of the request when in the Context of a WCF REST service.

I found you can do it with the following code:
var props = OperationContext.Current.IncomingMessageProperties;
var endpointProperty = props[RemoteEndpointMessageProperty.Name] as RemoteEndpointMessageProperty;
if (endpointProperty != null)
    var ip = endpointProperty.Address;

This seems overly verbose so you may want to consider putting this code into helper methods or a base class for re-use.
