Step through the front door into the bright open-plan living area and gape at the awe inspiring view of Port Philip Bay. Perfect for a sunny breakfast while you watch sailing boats or an afternoon cocktail before sunset.
Unlike many open plan spaces, which can feel crowded, this one has ample space to make each area feel like its own room. You can literally spend hours sitting on the huge comfortable couch and watch Melbourne's ever changing weather roll in and don't forget those amazing sunsets. The dining setting sits apart from the lounge, yet close enough to the kitchen to make entertaining easy. A large study adjoins the lounge with the option of closing the area off with sliding doors. All areas open onto the enormous terrace with its water and city views and its own private lap pool.
Three generous bedrooms can be found at the rear of the apartment, the master and second bedroom enjoying their own balconies with views back to the city. The ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom is almost as large as the bedroom itself Both bathrooms feature separate shower and bath and a powder room plus separately laundry.
This stunning apartment is in a complex that comes complete with its own heated 20m pool and a fully equipped gym.
Just beyond your door you'll find Bay St with its myriad of fancy boutiques, art galleries, and grand old pubs paying homage to the bean and barley in typical Melbourne style. It’s unlikely you’ll need the use of a car with everything within walking distance, but if you’re wanderings take you further afield, there is garage parking available for two cars at no additional cost. With the beach as your backyard, Bay View Penthouse offers the best of city and beachside living.
