The Perfect Property Trifecta: Ground Floor, Huge Courtyard & Oversized Garage


It is so hard to find something unique in the apartment market, so when opportunities like this present themselves you need to take them with both hands. With it's own secure street entrance, it feels like you are stepping into your own house rather than a luxuriously renovated one-bedroom apartment. Screened by the mature Birds of Paradise and Silver Birch of the landscaped native garden, the huge oversized courtyard is perfect for entertaining or your furry little friend. Crossing the threshold into the airconditioned comfort of the living area, it is immediately apparent that the current owners have an eye for design and for detail. Fully renovated from top to bottom, the timber floors and light colour palette make the most of the northern sun, piercing through from the tropical garden courtyard. You can enjoy the green outlook from the modern kitchen, with all the comforts you would expect and some exceptional finishing touches including solid stone benchtops and under-cupboard strip lighting. It's all the little things that make a big difference, like the clever study nook and that little bit of direct sunlight that streams through in the afternoons into the large double bedroom with BIRs. Arguably the sweetest surprise is the ensuite bathroom, a triumph of the attention to detail the owners have put to good use throughout the whole apartment. With floating vanity, large feature mirror and a cleverly designed match of large floor tiles and vertical subway wall tiles, you will be hard-pressed to find luxury similar in this market. What might not be so obvious from the marketing material and floorplan is just how large the garage is, offering extra storage space and convenience. The surprises don't stop there, with visitors parking on-site and the potential to pull up behind the garage for additional off-street parking. The neighbours in the building have created one of those rare communities that look out for each-other, and enjoy communal laundry facilities and a veggie patch for all to enjoy. The location speaks for itself with such close proximity to Fawkner Park, Prahran Market, Chapel Street, and Prahran Station...but you need to take a wander through this one to truly appreciate all that is on offer at 1/44 Albion Street.
