New York Style Warehouse ConversionEXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST - Closing Wednesday 20th March 5.00pm
Proudly creating a new benchmark for 21st Century warehouse conversions, this immediately captivating, two bedroom residence delivers New York-style of living to the Paris-end of the Melbourne CBD. A home of unique sophistication, to which others aspire, this apartment boldly combines its original industrial styling with the very finest of contemporary appointments and a vast 220sqm layout to inspire awe.
A part of the iconic Sargood House, this historically significant building is a slice of Melbourne’s history. Originally built by Charles Sargood (of Ripponlea and Werribee Mansion fame), the building has variously been utilised as a clothing factory, as a Department Store and indeed, as part of the Herald Sun newspaper, before its ultimate conversion to authentic inner-city apartments. Relatively common in New York, this is a rare find in Melbourne.
The home’s towering, 12 foot ceilings are accentuated by exposed pipes and enormous original industrial windows that introduce genuine inner-city outlooks and the effect – combined with its striking proportions - is breath-taking.
Inspired in its vision and meticulous in its execution, the home presents a vast open-plan kitchen / meals / living where concrete floors with a Venetian Swirl draw the eye and where a Miele and SMEG kitchen inspire the chef. Stone benches are the perfect place to prepare food or to gather informally, whilst an abundance of premium two-pack cabinetry and ingenious built-in storage are particularly practical inclusions. A 400 bottle wine room is guaranteed to be put to good use by home entertainers, whilst an elevated study area provides an ingenious sense of spatial separation.
A wonderful retreat, the master bedroom is serviced by an ensuite with stone benches that are themed to the kitchen, as well as a frameless shower screen and generous walk-in-robes, whilst the second bedroom has made a striking visual feature of its built-in robes.
Securely accessed via video entry and an elevator, this extraordinary residence offers secure parking for 2 vehicles and combines the ambient warmth of hydronic heating and refrigerated air-conditioning with a remarkable sense of privacy that defies its remarkable dimensions and inner-city setting. Indeed, every detail has been carefully considered.
Clearly a central Melbourne position opens up to the Theatre Precinct, and extraordinary range of cafes, restaurants, bars and nightlife opportunities, but please note also the joy of proximity to the vast expanses of Treasury Gardens, the MCG and sporting precinct as well as all modes of public transport.
