"Avila" Stunning Art Deco beach residence with house-like proportions
This oversized (125sqm approx.) ground floor Art Deco two-bedroom apartment is positioned only one block from the beach with instant appeal and unique style. Presenting light-filled interiors, traditional period details throughout and polished timber floors, the charming character and unsurpassed level of scale is incredibly rare for an apartment. A spacious entry hall introduces neutral hues and an immaculate style, leading to a bright living space with Heat & Glo fireplace and access to a covered terrace with leafy surrounds and Cowderoy Park view aspects. The separate dining room is equally light-filled and exceptionally large in its functional design, allowing for a flexible layout and plenty of space for entertaining. Accompanying the zoned living areas is a retro kitchen of contrasting tones equipped with European appliances and superb rounded benches in true Art Deco style. The generously proportioned two bedrooms receive flooding natural light and are complemented by a well-equipped central bathroom with a pedestal basin, shower over bathtub and traditional window shutters. Additional features include a large comprehensive laundry with garden access, discreet storage throughout, secure entry foyer with security system and rear access. Located in close proximity to various trams direct to the city, with St Kilda foreshore, Catani Gardens and Albert Park Lake all nearby, and endless iconic restaurants within walking distance, this residence presents a perfect opportunity for professionals, downsizers or investors alike. Built in 1935 and designed by highly acclaimed architects Beedham and Wright. One of only seven.
