Owners Notes

The city views will never escape our memory. Sitting in the dining area on a summer evening

sipping champagne watching Melbourne’s lights glitter is just spectacular and easily our favourite

part about living here. You have that sense of being on a city vacation but with every comfort of

home. There is an intimate rustic charm about the building itself and it has been such a great

place to call home.

There’s a bit of history to this apartment. It was part of the Henry B. Smith Wool Store est. 1930,

we have made some improvements to it since our purchase in 2001, but we have always aimed

to retain as much of the character and original features as possible such as the rustic brick wall in

the master bedroom. The timber floor throughout the apartment has been restored and the

bathrooms updated.

Being within walking distance to absolutely everything we need and enjoy in our lives is a real

sweetener. The location makes this home everything. Some of Melbourne’s best cafes are

moments away, our favourites being; The Apollo, The Auction Rooms and The Roasting

Warehouse. We also enjoy popping down to Akita, a local hidden gem, serving traditional

Japanese dishes. Plus, the fresh produce and delicacies of the Victoria Market are a handy stroll

away for groceries or weekend breakfasts. Catching up with friends and family at Errol Street

Village takes no time and for nights out, the Crown Precinct and Marvel Stadium aren't far either.

Working in the CBD means living here is barely a commute, offering that sought after work-life

balance, even if there is a need to stay back late. When travelling or if we have visitors stay the

proximity to Tullamarine Airport is a bonus. Of course, the surrounds boast excellent schools and

universities for families, and the Royal Melbourne, Womens and Childrens Hospitals are very close.

We will be sad to say goodbye.

Vendor Review

Value Add, Professional, Customised Service    

Nick and his team were an absolute delight to work with, the level of professionalism, knowledge of the market and quality of service second to none. I sincerely believe Nick helped add material value to the property. He took the time to work with us 1:1, guiding us through the process as well as providing suggestions and recommendations for stylist and trades professionals. We were extremely impressed by Nick's willingness to hold on marketing the property until we had completed freshening-up works. Nick's team helped co-ordinate the entire process, we were extremely impressed with the speed at which we went from the stylist leaving the property, to signing off marketing materials within 24 hours, through to the first open for inspection. It’s not often I’ve worked with a service provider where the whole project was seamlessly delivered from start to finish. I have no hesitation in recommending Nick and his team and look forward to working with them again in the future.
