As Large as a House with Bay and City Views
A home like no other and just metres from the beach, this captivating, 3 bedroom, first floor / top floor, Art Deco apartment is one of only two. Remarkably, the home combines a lofty, New York-style sense of proportion with its original heritage, water views, city views and the added bonus of a modern, fully self-contained studio that sits above the garage.
Rich in traditional character with dark timber floors, original windows, picture rails and fine ceiling detail, the home flows to a rear kitchen / meals and a sunny deck with views to the city skyline. A semi-attached formal dining also flows to a large lounge at the front of the home with another balcony that overlooks the Kerferd Road pier and the waters of Port Phillip Bay. Renovated to offer a third outdoor living area, a clever staircase leads to a brilliant rooftop where a terrace is also sundrenched with more views of the bay.
The bedrooms are each spacious – in the style of period homes – one with an ensuite, another with robes and the third with a fire place. Meanwhile, the rear garage is a rare treat that opens up a number of possible usage scenarios with a bathroom and an upstairs studio with a kitchenette.
In the Albert Park College zone, moments from Victoria Avenue and Bridport Street.
