88 Ireland Street, West Melbourne VIC 3003
AN ARCHITECTURAL MASTERPIECE WITH VIEWS
Architecturally brilliant, the home's angular design introduces natural light from all directions, providing northerly and westerly warmth in winter as well as delicious cross-ventilation in summer, all the while enjoying the most wonderful indoor-outdoor connection.
Organised around a showpiece marble waterfall island bench, the open-plan, Miele and SMEG-equipped, kitchen / meals / living is instantly engaging, but also a joy to live or entertain in. Copious quantities of brilliant storage, a pantry and soft close cabinetry combine with a delightful flow through concertina doors to a substantial entertainers' balcony that can be shaded by a retractable awning for year-round enjoyment.
To complete the expectations of proud home entertainers, the rooftop terrace is spectacular with 360 degree views that include the Melbourne Wheel, the Westgate Bridge and, of course, the city skyline.
The master bedroom is a superb designer domain, complete with a fully-tiled ensuite and walk-in robes, whilst each of the other bedrooms is well-equipped with built-in robes. Indeed, storage is a considered theme in this home where under-stair storage is huge and compliments the large, dual accessed, lock-up garage with direct internal entry to the main home.
Like the master ensuite, the main bathroom is fully-tiled with a marble-topped wall-mounted floating vanity that compliments a frameless screened shower. Additional features include a Heat n Glo gas log fire in the living zone, reverse cycle heating / cooling throughout and secure video entry.
Vibrantly positioned in a quiet street right on the city fringe, find an abundance of great schools, including University High School (zoned) and North Melbourne Primary School (zoned). Walk to Queen Victoria Market, North Melbourne Railway Station and Flagstaff Gardens. Its all at your doorstep.
I can’t thank enough Mr Tom Alexiadis…
