165 Rose Street Fitzroy Victoria 3065
Left on Mar 3, 2020 for a stay in Mar 2020
Unreal place, simply huge with stunning outdoor sunny terrace with views of the Melbourne skyline. Really bowled over by the size, not used to central apartments this big. We had 6 people. 2 in each room and one per double sofa bed (located in study and living area) and there was ample room for all of us. The place itself is stunning full of character and very industrial with exposed piping and funky artwork. Great kitchen too – fully equipped and really big. Location wise you couldn't beat it, tons of cafes and restaurants on your doorstep and 50metres to the 86 tram into the city. Well def stay here again!

Set over two levels, this enormous penthouse warehouse conversion is well located to enjoy Melbourne. On a tree-lined side street, so close to the main Fitzroy streets and city trams, you’ll be amazed how quiet yet central this penthouse really is!
The penthouse is located in one of the iconic, heritage, MacRobertson factories; circa 1880! The boutique warehouse comprises only 17 apartments, and this is the largest. On the second floor, with lift access, it is a large, light-filled apartment complete with original industrial features, carefully curated historic artwork, enormous windows and a large 20m2 north-facing terrace boasting uninterrupted city views! Green plants are throughout the apartment.
Downstairs are two living areas, one of which is two stories high with a stunning green ‘plant wall’. Furniture is bespoke and considered, including original 1970s armchairs by the renowned Australian designer, Tessa.
The kitchen is a cook’s dream with stone bench tops, Victorianox chef knives, a pantry of spices and high-grade appliances. The beautiful, custom-made dining table easily seats 8; the legs were made from the steel barbells stands of the 1956 Melbourne Olympics! At the top of the dining table is an original large painting of the acclaimed Australian artist, Jasper Knight.
An industrial staircase will lead you upstairs, passing an original iconic poster from Melbourne Zoo from the 1980s, a piece of cherished pop culture. Upstairs is a large open plan study (with desk and a sofa bed) and a Queen bedroom, both with bi-fold doors opening onto the large rooftop terrace, that is ideal for relaxation or entertaining.
The spacious loft King bedroom overlooks the living area below. It has a large privacy roller blind that shuts off the open loft ‘wall’.
The large, light-filled bathroom features huge industrial windows with city views allowing you to shower while watching the sunrise over Melbourne! The bathroom includes a bath and ‘Hollywood’ style mirror.
The penthouse is only a very short stroll to the trams, and is surrounded by bustling Smith, Johnston and Brunswick Streets, with their cafes, restaurants, shops, supermarkets and wine bars, and the Eastern Freeway is only 1 km away.
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.
Welcome to our home! We have lovingly restored this property over many years and have filled it with items that to us reflect the heritage and character of the building. We hope you enjoy it and cherish your time in Fitzroy. Please remember to read the Guest Information Folder, which is filled with personal tips on the best cafes, bars and restaurants; all of which are literally on your doorstep. Oh and we’re foodies, on a first name basis with many of the owners around; so rest assured it’s a VERY good list!
