High-end apartment designed by internationally renowned architect hits market

The crowning glory of a glorious apartment building created by a world-renowned architect has just been listed in Parkville.

Located only 3km north of the CBD, the penthouse at 4P/228 The Avenue, is the largest apartment in the Arcadia building, which displays the signature style of globally acclaimed Melbourne architect, Nonda Katsalidis.

The award-winning architect has designed numerous buildings nationwide, including the Melbourne Terrace Apartments in Franklin Street, listed as one of the Top 20 buildings in Australia of the 20th century by Architecture Australia.

A pinnacle of luxury and style, the refurbished two-level penthouse is nothing short of spectacular with its fine fit-out and uninterrupted views, according to Barry Plant Bendigo agent Josie Caruso.

It has captivated a variety of buyers, from families and downsizers to professional couples and entrepreneurs, she said.

“Many are locals, including a few Carlton supporters who love the area,” she added.

“They’ve all been blown away with the presentation and marketing of the property.”

The owners, who bought the apartment in early 2016, worked with Bendigo’s ePlus Architects to refurbish their new home in the style of a curated art gallery.

Adorning the rooms are works by local and French artists, including bold canvases that complement award-winning sculptures set in wall niches.

The artworks are highlighted by a sophisticated lighting system that creates mood and atmosphere in the home.

Opulent Calacutta marble and onyx stone surfaces gleam throughout the interior, which is accentuated by rich timber wall panelling and warm wooden flooring.

Drenched with light flooding in through soaring glass walls, it offers open-plan living, four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a powder room and home office.

Split into two zones, the chef’s kitchen with Gaggenau and Miele appliances, can be separated by an electronic glass panel featuring more artwork, leaving the bar or serving area to come to life with lighted onyx stone.

Opening to the 270-degree curved terrace, the open-plan living and dining area, with a wine rack and display cabinet, is the perfect place to entertain while taking in unobstructed views.

These vistas are also appreciated from the upper level, which includes the home office and main bedroom, complete with a walk-through wardrobe and ensuite.

The apartment also features a Bang & Oulfsen entertainment system with speakers in rooms and bathrooms, zoned climate control, basement parking for three cars, secure private entry, and all the latest comforts and conveniences.

The owners, who are moving on to their next project, have enjoyed the vibrant inner-city lifestyle the property offers, according to Ms Caruso.

With gourmet restaurants and trendy cafes at the doorstep, it is also not far from the airport and the CBD, which is ideal for business people who host local and overseas clients.

“This is a move-in ready, safe and secure, low-maintenance apartment that will meet most needs,” Ms Caruso said.

“It offers an enviable lock-up-and-leave lifestyle in luxurious surroundings, with easy access to parks, Melbourne Zoo, airport, Flemington Racecourse and the cosmopolitan city itself.”
