Formerly the MacRobertson Chocolate Factory, this designer warehouse apartment allows you to stay in a Melbourne icon in one of the city's coolest locations.
Enjoy the stunning uninterrupted views of the city skyline over the roof tops of Fitzroy. Start the day early watching hot air balloons drift past and relax at the end of the day with stunning sunsets and the twinkling night skyline. You may even be lucky to stay on a night of fireworks where you will have one of the best views in town.
On entering the apartment you are struck by the ceiling height and voluminous space rare in today's apartments. Timber floors, exposed piped and whitewashed walls complete the authentic warehouse feel complemented by modern day comforts including air conditioning/heating and tasteful furnishings, including Mark Tuckey, Camerich and Southwood. The city skyline provides as amazing backdrop to the living and dining area and the space is a joy to be in.
There is secure undercover parking, as well as occasional guest parking, plus a tram stop just behind the building on Smith St taking you into the city in minutes. The CBD is also within walking distance from this beautiful apartment. It is also a convenient and central location for driving too, in particular being just around the corner from the start of the Eastern Freeway. The Yarra Trail bike path is one street away and the Fitzroy pool is just around the corner.
Best coffee spot: Breakfast Thieves (next door), when it is closed on a Monday try Atomica, Backstreet Eating, Hammer & Tong, Smith Street Alimentari and South of Johnston.
Best restaurant: The Robert Burns Hotel (seriously good Spanish), Saint Crispin and Gorski & Jones.
Best local activity: Sitting in a local restaurant/cafe with a drink soaking in the eclectic atmosphere that is Fitzroy.
Favourite thing about the home: The views over the rooftops of Fitzroy to the CBD - watch the hot air balloons over the city in the morning, amazing sunsets and the twinkling lights of the city at night. The location too - within walking distance to so many amazing places and central for driving, with particularly easy access to the Eastern Freeway for day trips to the Mornington Peninsular wineries and beaches.
