Almost a century on, and with contemporary amenities, it still commands attention, retaining all the charm that made it a “go to” city residence for wealthy Victorians. With hydronic heating, cooling, laundry, security and secure car park, this apartment is a short walk to Melbourne Boys’ Grammar, Melbourne Girls’ Grammar and Christ Church Grammar with easy access to many more schools. Walk to Domain Road Village shops and cafes, Fawkner Park, South Yarra retail and lifestyle precincts, the MCG and Tennis Centre or take a tram to St Kilda Road, the Arts Centre and the CBD.
