17/258 Flinders Lane, Melbourne
Sought after Majorca apartment
Located on the intersection of Centre way and Flinders lane this historic Neo – Romanesque building (circa 1929), designed by Harry Norris a prominent Melbourne architect.
Norris was inspired by the then popular Spanish Colonial Revival style after visits to the United States, and the building is laden with Spanish/Moorish features, including blue faience tiles; foliated (leaf shaped) and rope moulded ornament, painted in gold and a foyer featuring terrazzo and inlaid stone. A Heritage Victoria database entry for Majorca House, says: “The Moorish influence in its terracotta façade places it firmly within the Melbourne tradition of exotic architecture in the late 1920s.
A statement in design an individuality the apartment is tranquilly located in the quietest part of the building. A sanctuary amongst the hustle and bustle this completely renovated one bedroom apartment has had no expense spared. Finished in high end engineered timber floors, with freshly painted walls and ceiling, the surrounds of this apartment flow eloquently from space to space. The bespoke designer kitchen includes Stone kitchen benches with matching splashbacks, soft closing two-pack kitchen cabinets on the lower half with beech wood uppers cabinets, wine cooler, induction cooktop and porcelain sink. Other high end finishes include brushed stainless light switches, chrome mixer tap and designer pendant lights above the island bench.
One of the most discerning features of this apartment is its spectacular bathroom with 600 x 600 porcelain tiles, tinted frameless glass shower screen, matt black tap wear, earthy timber cabinet and oval mirror highlighted by downlights and cool panel lights. The contemporary, fresh bathroom is a master piece and shows the attention to detail the entire property possesses.
A raised master bedroom provides surprising privacy from the rest of the space with adjacent built in wardrobes and downlights with flowing engineered timber floors with a continuation of the panel lights. The subtle features of this understated design are what sets this apartment apart from the rest. A truly unique dwelling this property needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.
