This unique property is a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a 2 storey, 3 bedroom house in the CDB without paying Owners Corporation Fees. Brilliantly located just metres from RMIT and the State Library and only one block from Melbourne Central and Chinatown this outstanding property is one of only a handful of its kind that remain in the city. Filled with natural light from a light well that soars the full height of the building, the ground floor is given over to a large open plan living and dining space with the generous sized kitchen tucked unobtrusively away at one end. The living area features very high ceilings, a working open fireplace with timber mantel and surround which separates two sliding doors that open onto a private, brick paved courtyard. The kitchen has excellent bench space including a breakfast bar, Smeg and Bosch appliances, loads of storage cupboards and a tiled splashback. A discrete powder room on this level also includes laundry facilities.
The upper level offers 3 bedrooms including the master with a similar fire place as in the living area below, a ceiling fan, a walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom featuring a shower over a spa bath. The second and third bedrooms both have built-in robes and share a second bathroom. The property, freshly painted and with new carpet throughout, features ducted heating, security doors and an alarm system.
The location is truly outstanding, totally private yet placing everything the city has to offer virtually on the doorstep. Trams, trains and buses are just metres away as is an amazing choice of retail and entertainment options including cafes, restaurants and Melbourne's renowned laneway bar scene. Her Majesty's and the Comedy Theatres are just around the corner while the Royal Exhibition Building and Melbourne Museum are easily reached via a stroll through the Carlton Gardens.
Without doubt this is an exceptional opportunity, one that will rarely be repeated and therefore inspection is highly recommended.
