Perched on the North-West corner of the much-loved Historic Princes May Pavilion this vast period apartment of some 100sqm offers unique characteristics and the charm of a bygone era. Encompassing the original ornate, art nouveau bay windows, a feature specific to this apartment only, its massive proportions, grand-height ceilings and solid construction provide a welcome change to more modern apartment options. One of 8 residences and the first time offered since its conception in 1992, inside you are greeted by an oversized open plan living/dining zone, timber-effect kitchen and bright white modern bathroom/laundry. A versatile mezzanine level sits above the kitchen area and offers a multitude of options for use, be it a light-filled study/office, guest/3rd bedroom or clever little retreat. The two main bedrooms are nicely separated at either end of the apartment, both offer built-in-robes and lovely views over Carlton's historic period streetscape. A wide balcony provides ample room for entertaining and has spectacular views to the twinkling lights of the CBD and overlooks Drummond Street. Situated on the edge of the city and within the Carlton Gardens & Royal Exhibition Building Precinct its extraordinary lifestyle location is within walking distance of Lygon Street & the CBD. In addition, rare parking for two cars in a tandem configuration & the very handy storage room confirm this wonderful apartment's unmatched credentials. This spectacular residence pairs privacy, prestige and position without parallel.
