Now you can truly enjoy your ultra-cool inner-Melbourne escape in the contemporary and charming home that is Windsor Retreat. With glimpses of its original Victorian beginnings, this four-bedroom home is perfect for families and even the family pet. You’ll discover a stress-free experience with memorable BBQ’s on the deck, long, relaxing days by the pool and gatherings in the spacious living areas. And with the very best of Melbourne at your fingertips, that enviable urban lifestyle awaits.
From its trendy Windsor location, Windsor Retreat brings you a fuss-free experience from the moment you arrive, with the convenience of two car spaces. As you walk through the Federation façade, the heart of the home draws you in. Kick off your shoes and unwind in the flexible kitchen, dining and living layout with contemporary black and white palette, extensive glazing and polished concrete flooring. The focal point of this zone is indeed the tranquil view of the swimming pool and back garden.
In the middle of the zone is a spacious dining table; a practical addition by day, while at night a vintage glass pendant chandelier creates a soft mood for a romantic or laid-back meal. On one side of the dining zone is a contemporary minimalist kitchen where generous proportions and high-end finishes and appliances easily meet your holiday cooking needs. While the living room caters for every season, from cosy gatherings in front of the fire to the seamless transition between indoors and out on warm evenings. And for some extra space and privacy, there’s a separate living room.
Each guest will find the ideal bedroom with four generous light-filled and stylish rooms. The main bedroom offers a king bed, generous wardrobe and ensuite. For the younger guests, you have a bedroom with a cot and one with bunk beds. There’s also a queen bedroom as well as a double futon in the fifth bedroom, while guests have a family bathroom with shower and the convenience of a powder room. And you’ll appreciate that restful night’s sleep after a busy day out, or even a slow day spent outdoors, whether it be a BBQ on the back deck that extends past sunset or a day full of fun and laughter in the pool.
St Kilda beach, Luna Park, Melbourne’s Arts Precinct, Prahran Market, Albert Park Lake, Chapel Street and the intriguing Artists Lane; it’s all within a few kilometres’ from your doorstep. While you’re within walking distance of most activities, you also have a full complement of public transport close by and the CBD is just a short tram or train ride. With so much on offer, such as exploring Albert Park Lake, spending the day at the iconic St Kilda Beach or shopping and dining on Chapel Street, you certainly won’t run out of things to do.
