Description

Please note the property was listed on the 1 November on Stayz and on Airbnb on the 23 October. Please refer to Airbnb for recent reviews. Surprise! Hidden at the end of cobblestone laneway, this light-filled and spacious studio apartment is housed in historic stables (circa 1868). Pleasantly secluded but only minutes walking distance from Melbourne's premier attractions. You won't believe you're in the city! The original interior has been cleverly remodelled to allow you to do as much, or as little, as you like. Stylishly furnished with meticulous care and attention to detail, it's a versatile open space that is both dynamic and restful. You can settle in for a long soak in the deep claw-foot bath, sink back on your queen-size mezzanine bed with a book, sip a cocktail on the day bed in the sheltered courtyard or serve dinner to someone special using the fully equipped kitchen and dining area. Soaring ceilings and original brickwork speak of the stable's past, but it's modern at heart with a luxurious bathroom, under-floor heating, premium bedding, linen and towels and unique light fittings. A cantilevered flat screen TV allows you to enjoy your favourite shows from your bed, the couch or the dining table. The apartment feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but step outside and you're within a World Heritage area, and only minutes walk from the inner city’s liveliest restaurants, bars and shopping strips in Carlton and Fitzroy (Lygon Street, Gertrude Street and Brunswick Street). Slip through the back of the laneway and take a stroll through the historic Carlton Gardens to the Melbourne Museum, and then continue over to Queen Victoria Market and the buzzing city centre. The apartment is central to everything! It's close to transport (bus, tram and train), but most importantly away from street and traffic noise — you’ll sleep soundly. About me: I am an architect with an office in the city centre so I'm never far away if anything needs to be attended to. I am busy throughout the week, and occasionally out or at gym on weeknights, but happy to stop and chat when I'm on my way to my apartment upstairs. I know where to find a good martini and a great coffee and can recommend restaurants, bars, bakeries ( D. Chirico around the corner have great challah on Fridays btw) and galleries, along with the nuts and bolts you may need during your stay: grocers, dry cleaners, tailors. Perhaps best of all, I have a sense of humour. Please note the property was listed on the 1 November on Stayz and on Airbnb on the 23 October. Please refer to Airbnb for recent reviews.
