55/485 St Kilda Road, Melbourne
Designed by Sir Bernard Evans, this third-floor North facing apartment with its timeless older-style dimensions is undeniably a blue-chip offering for investors and owner-occupying lifestyle seekers.
The solid-brick, potential-rich home features a large and light-filled living/dining room with a corner of windows framing inspiring unobstructed views of the leafy greenery of St Kilda Boulevard on the one side and slight views of Fawkner Park on the other. The vintage kitchen is fitted with a servery through to the dining room in addition to a concealed washing machine. The two big bedrooms are robed and share an original bathroom. The apartment has a covered car space and the building offers a tranquil communal garden.
The prized location allows walking just a few metres to reach city-bound trams and Fawkner Park while Albert Park Lake, Fitzroy, Greville and Chapel Streets, Toorak Road and Prahran Station and Market are also within close proximity.
Sheridan Close has been described as a ‘stylistic hybrid’, combining a concave regency façade with lofty columns flanking the entry, Georgian proportioned windows and Art Deco influences.
