‘Leithen’: Perfectly Positioned Art Deco Treasure

An exceedingly rare offering, amidst the leafy perfection of Acland Street’s ‘Paris end’, this traditional two bedroom Art Deco classic is a character-filled sanctuary set on the first floor of the Spanish Mission-inspired and palm tree-surrounded ‘Leithen’ building. One of only 16 and filled with the faithfully preserved charms of its original flamboyant era, the apartment is superbly situated within walking distance of everything that matters in St Kilda.

Resplendent under soaring ceilings and with leadlight windows, all complemented by polished hardwood flooring, picture rails and the dappled plasterwork of the era, the home is an elegant expression of Art Deco refinement. A galley-styled kitchen highlights a timber breakfast counter and French Door connection to an appealing balcony, while also flowing to a generous lounge / dining that is warmed by an ambient open fireplace. Revealing attractive vistas in all directions, this securely accessed apartment also features intercom entry, generous bedrooms – one with a second balcony – as well as a contemporary subway-tiled bathroom / laundry and a wall panel heater.

Brilliantly situated within moments of so many wonderful cafes, fine restaurants and teeming bars along Fitzroy Street, Acland Street and at the Espy, plus you have wonderful access to the sands of St Kilda Beach, city-bound trams and the light rail.
