An authentic oversized Art Deco classic, set in one of Elwood’s favourite tree-lined streets and just metres from the St Kilda Botanic Gardens, this impressively scaled and character-rich, two bedroom plus study/sunroom ground floor apartment is delightfully surrounded by the gardens of ‘Lowana’. A boutique block, one of only eight, secure intercom entry and enjoying a coveted undercover carport parking space (separate title), this is the quintessential Elwood apartment and a classic example of what makes Elwood so sought-after.
Set under finely detailed ceilings with all the picture rails, leadlight windows, generously proportioned rooms and contoured plasterwork that distinguish the era, the home reveals a modern Miele-equipped and stone-topped kitchen set separately from a dining room that is warmed by a gas-converted traditional fireplace, plus there is a semi-attached lounge/living. Meanwhile, a large front sunroom offers terrific home office potential bathed in brilliant morning sun, whilst the bathroom is particularly bright and the home enjoys virtually exclusive use of a paved courtyard that is set within the building’s gardens and suited to idyllic outdoor entertaining.
This is a dream inner-bayside position that allows you to choose between the sleepy café vibes of Tennyson Street, the vibrant bars and dining of Acland Street and the urban authenticity of Carlisle Street, plus you have the waterfront at the end of the street, multiple tram routes along Brighton Road and city-bound trains from Balaclava. One of the best of its type. Due Diligence Checklist
