This is an individual apartment in a heritage, converted warehouse. It takes up half the second floor, there is only one other apartment on the floor, and is accessed via a secure entrance with intercom. You can then either take the elevator or striking industrial central staircase to the apartment on level 2. There is also a second access to Bond St around the corner.
Perfect for four, this historic, warehouse with its handsome Edwardian façade was built in the 1840’s, was a paper factory circa 1905 and rag trade offices in the 80’s. It was finally converted in 1998 as part of a boutique block of only 11 apartments. Its true warehouse features are characterised by its original exposed red brick walls, lofty ceilings, exposed structural beams and polished original timber floors.
The apartment welcomes you with a large, tiled entrance foyer before blending into a spacious open plan living zone, spread over 160 m2. It has a generous sized, stunning designer kitchen with vast amounts of cupboard space, SMEG appliances and good quality stone benches. The colossal, carpeted main bedroom has a unique, glass brick window, a large WIR & ensuite fitted with a large spa bath & frameless glass, double shower. The second, central bathroom also has full laundry facilities, linen & towels.
The apartment was been professionally decorated with bespoke furnishings and décor, and it has a spacious yet very cosy feel to it. Overlooking Bond St below, it is easy to feel like you are in the heart of a bustling, exciting city, yet tucked away in your own hideaway, with all the comfortable space that you need.
Tea, coffee, toiletries, washing and cleaning products and other welcome supplies are supplied. You will need to purchase more of these consumables if you need them for the rest of your stay.
Note from the owner
We knew we had to buy this apartment when we saw it, and have never regretted calling it ours. The location was perfect for us with the Elizabeth and Flinders Street trams mere meters away along with Flinders Street Station. We love the history of the building and the many hats it wore, (e.g. a paper factory circa 1905 and rag trade offices in the 80’s). At over 150sqm it is a CBD rarity due to the spaciousness and high ceilings. It is also a 1⁄2 floor apartment, therefore is private and quiet. The distinct true warehouse features give the place so much character along with the solid timber hardwood floors, exposed red brick and the original solid timber columns. We furnished and decorated the apartment with the respect it deserves, and hope you enjoy it as much as we know you will.
StayCentral has multiple alternative apartments available, in inner Melbourne locations.
