3/164 Ingles Street Port Melbourne 3207 VIC
Make History in Sophisticated Style
Make history with a home of rare sophistication in a high-profile building of unique heritage. Crafted to an impeccable standard for the TV series, The Block, Carleen and Dan's three bedroom plus study area, 2.5 bathroom home is one of just six apartments in a landmark Art Deco renovation overseen by leading architect, Julian Brenchley and topped by a spectacular city-view skygarden by David Franklin.
Honouring the building's origins with scene-setting architectural features including decoratively corniced ceilings, original timber doors and period cornices, the home's floorplan is set firmly in the modern day with grandly-proportioned lounge and dining areas plus an additional living-dining zone in a lush balcony alfresco-room with outdoor kitchen. Luxuriously accommodating with a grand master suite featuring a vast double ensuite (with dual vanity and double shower) and a decadent dressing-room, the apartment features secondary bedrooms with their own fitted dressing areas and a custom-built study beyond the impressive entry lobby.
Appointed to an elite standard with walls of seamless cabinetry and a massive CaesarStone island, the streamlined kitchen features every conceivable Bosch appliance (from steamer oven, to espresso machine, to integrated fridge-freezers), while a butler's pantry adds a second dishwasher and more sleek storage. Bathrooms channel the building's Art Deco spirit with shiny metallic finishes and matt black and white feature tiling, while subtle stone-look flooring meets plush bedroom carpets along a wide heated-floor hallway.
Beyond-prestige with individual climate control for every room plus extensive in-floor heating, this luxe apartment features a wireless Bose sound-system, automated blinds and generous double-glazing. With a curvaceous hand-crafted "Orbit" dining table taking centre-stage, the apartment combines fine leather dining and occasional seating with bespoke and restored vintage furniture. But the home's most notable pieces come from a vault of original treasures including Art Deco lighting matched to fine wallpaper, a sparkling multi-facet mirror centred in the lobby, and precious objects d'art including an angular Christofle tea set and sinuous bronze panther.
Secured by video intercom, keypad entry, lift access and auto-gated undercover parking, with artisan-restored terrazzo and timber detailing through reception and access areas, the building is situated at the heart of a transforming locale; minutes walk to the CBD, just 800m from the Convention Centre and directly opposite the wide green spaces of Port Melbourne Football Club. Innovatively designed, impeccably crafted and centrally located on the edge of the city, this is an historic opportunity.
