376 Gore Street, Fitzroy VIC 3065
Warehouse Conversion with New York Style
Mixed-use zoning and a flexible floorplan provide multiple options and flexibility, with separate access available to the huge ground floor area with rear courtyard, currently an artist's studio, but with the potential to provide rental income. The first floor with stunning vaulted ceilings contains an expansive open plan entertainers' kitchen, living and meals area with a study to the rear which could easily be a third bedroom, with original arched doors to its own east facing balcony. Plus, central bathroom with laundry and storage. The second-floor features two large bedrooms separated by the staircase with large built-in robes and beautiful natural light.
Other highlights of this unique home include two car basement parking, two storage cages, split system heating and cooling, hydronic heating.
Ideally located within moments to cafes, the boutique retail precincts, parks, universities, and CBD bound trams. Private, secure, and located within a wonderfully vibrant local community on the edge of the CBD. Nelson Alexander Pty Ltd
What we love about this home:
Sense of space comes to mind when I think of what we love about living in this old-style Fitzroy warehouse apartment. When I walk into the ground floor studio with its 3.6m ceiling height, reminiscent of a New York loft, I feel there is plenty of elbow room for my art and music activities. High ceilings throughout, and three overall living levels provide comfortable open plan living in combination with privacy. Visitors to 376 firstly notice the lofty ceilings and then comment on the unexpectedly quiet interior.
The double car park (a fourth level) in the underground garage is convenient and secure. As are the adjacent storage cages, perfect for sporting and camping gear. The studio space has served me well. Firstly, as a small gallery space for exhibiting artists, and for more than ten years it was rented out to an architectural firm. Presently it is a working studio space and easily converts into extra bedroom space for visiting guests. 376, with its spacious interior and Italian style courtyard garden is reminiscent of “old Fitzroy,” plenty of room and offering versatility.
What we love about this suburb:
Fitzroy, to us, is Melbourne’s equivalent of Greenwich Village. We love living in connection with Fitzroy’s history without compromising style. In 1996, when I first moved into 376, with a five-year plan in mind, little did I imagine I would stay here for 25 years. The best of inner-city living is right here on the doorstep. Once the car is parked in the garage, there are few reasons to take it out. Proximity to cafés, bars, restaurants, artisan bakers, art galleries, not to forget Fitzroy’s outdoor 50 metre Olympic size pool, and the vibrant diversity of Smith, Johnston and Gertrude Streets, have kept me here for a quarter of a century.
