861/18 Mt Alexander Road, Travancore VIC 3032
Sophisticated renovated Apartment, different from all others in building. Large double bedrooms with natural light and opening windows
This stunning apartment, bathed in natural light, has been remodelled to take advantage of the ever-changing, memorable views from the large window frames, doubling the vista by removing part of a wall.
Upon entry, this picturesque, interactive view engages you with illuminated bridges, moving cars and trains, and the Melbourne Star right across the city to the Bay.
Positioned on the 8th floor, you are connected with the view, and also on the same floor as the Kandinsky-inspired Sky Garden with casual seating areas to relax in, and a barbeque area to enjoy al-fresco dining.
Stylishly and uniquely updated, this apartment exudes individual class and character making it a cut above the rest. The entire living area, kitchen and bathroom floors have been replaced with top quality 600mm x 600mm Italian marble, achieving clean lines and a seamless sophistication. It has also been repainted with a quality Dulux wash 'n wear paint in an elegant grey/white. High quality wool/angora carpet has been installed in main bedroom.
This property has a strong flexible floorplan, which can be used for either a two bedroom, or one bedroom and home office/dedicated dining area. It is perfect for a single or a couple, or a family with a young child/children. Both bedrooms have natural light and opening windows. Many in the building have either borrowed light, or no windows at all. There is also a study nook positioned in the living room.
The kitchen in this apartment is also double the size of others in the building. Being a galley kitchen, it has a second wall with cupboards and a stone benchtop. This allows room to manoeuvre to prepare and cook meals, provides more storage for crockery, cutlery and other kitchen items. Most of the other apartments in the building have only one sided small kitchens with appliances, sink and bench all together, which provides barely any bench space or storage.
Other internal storage offered is a generous coat cupboard upon entry, a European laundry with storage shelf fitted above. Both bedrooms have large double mirrored built-in wardrobes with above head storage.

Comes with secure undercover parking space, gym and sauna facilities on site.
