Cairo: classic modernist style
This ground floor studio apartment facing north over luxuriant shared gardens is a rare opportunity to enter an historic and superbly maintained development. Designed by modernist architect Best Overend as Melbourne's first serviced 'bachelor flats', Cairo, opposite the Carlton Gardens and just 5 minutes from the CBD has been home since 1938 to many artists and designers. Filled with light and including a neat kitchen and good-sized bathroom/laundry, apartment 14 opens through a wall of glass to an on-title terrace. Meticulously preserved Deco details include polished timber floors and interior fittings.
