34/2 Collins Street Melbourne Victoria 3000

This is your one opportunity to stay in this magnificent heritage listed Alcaston House apartment. Beautifully renovated the individual design style oozes personality as it bridges “period of day” classic charm and contemporary interior inspiration. It is complete with air conditioning, heating, free Wi-Fi, Netflix a big flat screen TV in the main bedroom as well as in the living room.

Walk through the big red entrance door and you will be taken aback by the size of this one bedroom apartment with a central living/dining with charming balcony views over the Treasury precinct and a contemporary open plan kitchen with floor to ceiling pantry, dishwasher, compact oven with microwave, stove top and coffee machine. The large bedroom with built-in robes and stylish appointed central bathroom complete these flawlessly presented spaces. A study/business desk is incorporated in the living area, alongside the 6 seater dining table if work travels bring you here. There is also a hidden washing machine, great for longer stays.

Comfortably sleeps up to 3 guests in a queen bed and single fold out. The opulent tiling in the bathroom and glam lights above the mirror make you feel excited when you are getting ready for your day or heading out to a nearby restaurant, café, theatre or shop till you drop retail stores.

The benefits of the building's 'E' shape means the living room receives natural light shining on the original ornamental fireplace as you sit back in the comfy lounge and enjoy just being in the heart of the best city in the world. Open those large glass doors and stand out on the Juliet balcony to take in the city views including Treasury Gardens, The lights of the MCG and Rod Laver Arena in one direction and the top end of Spring Street in the other.

Great location, apartment is full of character. Some noise in living area from traffic and trams but bedroom is much quieter due to triple glazing.
