Fawkner Towers is one of the original residential high rise towers to be built on St Kilda Road and this spacious 2 bedroom apartment is one of only a handful of apartments that remain in original condition. While updating is an option the apartment has clearly stood the test of time and enjoys an enviable position on the 3rd floor literally next door to the pool making it a desirable opportunity for owner-occupiers or investors. It comprises a large living room with an adjoining kitchen with granite breakfast bar, electric cooktop and wall oven, dishwasher, ample storage cabinetry and plentiful bench space. The two double bedrooms have mirrored built-in robes and the master also features a tiled ensuite bathroom with a classic pedestal basin. The main bathroom which is also fully tiled has a bath and shower while the separate and very roomy laundry includes a dryer. A generous west facing patio opens off the living room to add an alfresco dimension to the apartment.
Features include heating & cooling in the living area, excellent security with key card entry and access to all floors, a day time concierge and 1 secure basement carpark. Of special note is the vendors decision to include matching granite dining and coffee tables that were sold with the apartment when new, their acknowledgement of the uniqueness of the apartment's original condition. Residents also have access to the building's resort facilities which include a communal terrace with BBQ facilities, the pool terrace, a fully equipped gymnasium and sauna.
A brilliant location puts St Kilda Road's cafes, restaurants and trams at your door with the vast expanse of Fawkner Park acting as a massive back yard. Just minutes away from the CBD, Fawkner Towers are close to Albert Park Lake, a fabulous choice of cafes, restaurants and specialty retailers in nearby Chapel Street, all the attractions of St Kilda and South Melbourne including the beach, the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre and the fresh food shopping at either Prahran or South Melbourne markets.
