Commanding an exclusive address in the heart of Melbourne's buzzing laneway precinct, this magnificent CBD offering occupies the entire penthouse floor of 'Causeway House'. A heritage listed c1920s building defined by a Palazzo-style design, it is set on the corner of The Causeway - a boutique cafe enclave capturing the essence of cosmopolitan inner city culture. It is also located footsteps from trams, Bourke Street Mall and award-winning restaurants.
Encompassing voluminous space on Level Seven, the flexible floorplan is currently configured as a contemporary residence and separate business, which could be incorporated into one deluxe apartment with two living areas. On the market for the first time in 18 years, it boasts elegantly updated light-filled interiors of generous original proportions and a superb terrace with never-to-be-built-out CBD views to the GPO and Eureka Building.
Polished concrete floors flow from the entrance hall into a large living and dining area beneath soaring ceilings, drenched in north-easterly light through period windows. Nearby is the sunny terrace enjoying the dramatic CBD outlook, separate sitting area and stylish kitchen. Dressed in stone benchtops, it has a stainless steel oven, Asko dishwasher, breakfast bar, custom cabinetry, soft close drawers and walk-in pantry.
The king-size master bedroom has a walk-in robe and lavish ensuite with a shower over an elevated spa bath. Further on are two additional king-size bedrooms with built-in robes and a fully tiled bathroom with a separate toilet. There are also two double bedrooms at the back, one with provisions for an ensuite, and a laundry with an attached storage area.
Currently occupied by the owner's family business, Pilkington Jewellers, the shop could be converted into a second living area. The huge open plan space includes a work room and storage room.
Beyond its gracious curved facade, the building provides intercom security, lift access to the penthouse floor
