Welcome to my Melbourne City Design Oasis!

Built in 1898, the building is one of Melbourne's most well known and loved heritage buildings. The spacious 70sqm apartment has one bedroom, one bathroom with bath, modern kitchen and a japanese-style mezzanine sitting room. The apartment will suit couples, singles and also families. There is a separate nursery with cot if required.
The space is creative and inspirational. It features very high ceilings, huge northerly facing arched windows on all sides of the apartment and a decent sized balcony with bbq. It is filled with natural light and streaming sunshine. Every detail has been considered - miele appliances, super fast WIFI, very comfy queen bed with lovely linen, concealed dishwasher and fridge, deep bath, a great selection of design and architecture books, tivoli sound system, Flat screen TV, brilliant heating and scandinavian furniture and design objects. This is the perfect base to return to after your inner city adventures.
