The penthouse is located in one of Fitzroy’s iconic, heritage, MacRobertson chocolate factories; circa 1880! The boutique warehouse comprises only 17 apartments, and this is the largest. There is a security, undercover garage under the building on the ground floor, with internal access to the elevator and lobby, plus a permit for street parking for a second car. Amongst tree-lined side streets, so close to the main Fitzroy streets and city trams, you’ll be amazed how quiet yet central this penthouse really is!
Set over two levels, this enormous penthouse warehouse conversion is well located to enjoy Melbourne. With lift access, it is a large, light-filled apartment complete with original industrial features, carefully curated historic artwork and a large 20m2 north-facing terrace boasting city views! Green plants are throughout the apartment. (We ask you to water these please. It only takes a few minutes).
Downstairs are two living areas, one of which is two stories high with a stunning green ‘plant wall’. Furniture is bespoke and considered, including original 1970s armchairs by the renowned Australian designer, Tessa.
The kitchen is a cook’s dream with stone bench tops, Victorianox chef knives, a pantry of spices and high-grade appliances. The beautiful, custom-made dining table easily seats 8; the legs were made from the steel barbells stands of the 1956 Melbourne Olympics! At the top of the dining table is an original large painting of the acclaimed Australian artist, Jasper Knight.
An industrial staircase will lead you upstairs, passing an original iconic poster from Melbourne Zoo from the 1980s, a piece of cherished pop culture. Upstairs is a large open plan study (with desk and a sofa bed) and a Queen bedroom, both with bi-fold doors opening onto the large rooftop terrace, that is ideal for relaxation or entertaining.
The spacious loft King bedroom overlooks the living area below. It has a large privacy roller blind that shuts off the open loft ‘wall’. The light-filled bathroom features a bath, and windows with city views allowing you to shower while watching the sunrise over Melbourne!  The penthouse is only a very short stroll to the trams, and is surrounded by bustling streets, with their cafes, restaurants, shops, supermarkets and wine bars, and the Eastern Freeway is only 1 km away.

Walk Score of 99 out of 100. This location is a Walker’s Paradise so daily errands do not require a car. It is a two minute walk from the 86 Waterfront City Docklands – Bundoora RMIT tram at the 20-Rose St/Smith St (Collingwood) stop. Nearby parks include Smith Reserve, J. D. Powderly Reserve and Triangle Park.
There are about 623 restaurants, bars and coffee shops in Fitzroy. People in Fitzroy can walk to an average of 59 restaurants, bars and coffee shops in 5 minutes.


This apartment is very centrally located and the Melbourne CBD is only a 20 minute walk. The number 11 tram along Brunswick street goes directly into the CBD.   Also, if you only travel on the trams within the city grid, it’s free, and you don’t need a Myki card.


It’s easy to get to the apartment. From the airport, you can just take a taxi, or you can hop on the Skybus to Southern Cross Station. From there, you can take the No. 11 Tram (to Plenty Road) up Collins St, and get off at Cnr Brunwsick Street and Johnston Street and walk 130m to the apartment.
