This is an individual first-floor apartment in a gorgeous old Melburnian property, set in manicured grounds amongst beautiful, large trees, in a gorgeous quiet, tree-lined street, with neighbouring streets with wide centre islands studded with gorgeous trees. StayCentral on George has a secure entry, landscaped communal gardens, and one on-street parking permit. There is a large park just down the road, and everything you could need is within walking distance.
With true Art Deco character, this fully restored 1930s apartment is perfect for two, and provides a sophisticated balance of old school charm and modern luxury. The first-floor apartment has been really well restored, so that it is essentially a beautiful new apartment, but in gorgeous, well-established grounds.
The apartment itself consists of a well-designed contemporary kitchen with good bench space, an integrated fridge and freezer with washing machine, and a stainless steel dishwasher. The open plan living and dining area has heating, beautiful, restored hardwood floorboards. A modern bathroom and bedroom with built in robes make it a very liveable retreat that is in a quiet area but very close to the city.
This apartment is ideal for someone looking for an inexpensive but well-appointed apartment that is walking distance to the CBD. Your swish, boutique, serviced apartment includes very modern, high quality furnishings and appliances, linen & towels. Please note it does not have air-conditioning.
All 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: I bought in East Melbourne because I think it is an ideal city base. I worked in East Melbourne for 3 years and loved it here. It is city living but not in the hustle and bustle; you have the parks, gardens and leafy streets to relax and unwind. East Melbourne has many historic buildings, and we love the historic art deco building and the luxury renovation meticulously designed to keep in with the period features and character of the area.)
We have multiple alternative apartments available, in inner Melbourne locations.
Not all properties are pet-friendly, including this one, however, we offer a number of beautiful homes that are happy to welcome furry family members. Please let us know if you require accommodation to suit pets as this requires approval prior to booking. Should this home not be suitable for your pets, we will be happy to recommend some alternatives.
The address is 29 George St, East Melbourne, Vic. and has a Walk Score of 93 out of 100. This location is a Walker’s Paradise so daily errands do not require a car.

George St Walkscore
It is located in the heart of East Melbourne, just minutes' walk to the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground, Rod Laver Arena, the CBD, and Bridge Road restaurants and shopping. City trams and Richmond Train Station are only 200m away. The Epworth Hospital is only 300m away, and the beautiful and historically interesting Fitzroy Gardens are at the end of the street.
Genteel East Melbourne is marked by stately Victorian terraces, art deco buildings and beautiful parks. Spring Street offers European-style cafes and glitzy musicals at the opulent Princess Theatre. Office workers lunch in sprawling, historic Fitzroy Gardens, while the wide steps of nearby Parliament House are a popular meeting place. The MCG draws crowds for cricket and AFL matches, and Rod Laver Arena etc bring the tennis and concert fans; all of this on the very eastern edge of the CBD theatre district, with some of the best cafes, restaurants and shops in the country.
