This is an individual apartment in a heritage, converted warehouse. There is only one other apartment on the floor, and is accessed via a secure entrance with intercom. You can then either take the elevator or striking industrial central staircase to the apartment on level 2.
Perfect for four, this historic warehouse with its handsome Edwardian façade was built in the 1840’s, was a paper factory circa 1905 and rag trade offices in the 80’s. It was finally converted in 1998 as part of a boutique block of only 11 apartments. Its true warehouse features are characterised by its original exposed red brick walls, lofty ceilings, exposed structural beams and polished original timber floors.
The apartment welcomes you with a large, tiled entrance foyer before blending into a spacious open plan living zone. It has a generous sized, stunning designer kitchen with vast amounts of cupboard space & SMEG appliances. The carpeted main bedroom has a unique, glass brick window, a large WIR & ensuite fitted with a large spa bath & double shower.
The apartment has been professionally decorated with artistic furnishings and décor, and it has a spacious yet very cosy feel to it. Overlooking Bond St below, it is easy to feel like you are in the heart of a bustling, exciting city, yet tucked away in your own hideaway.
Recent improvements as of September 2022 include extensive, internal sound-proofing and double glazing, to ensure a peaceful stay, and a 24-hour hot water service, so you’ll never run out of hot water. If you are a light sleeper though, or if some background noise in the evenings will annoy you, it may not be the best property for you. We do have almost 30 different options to choose from, on the StayCentral site, if you think this one may not work for you.

This warehouse conversion is well located to enjoy Melbourne, only a very short stroll to the trams in Flinders and Elizabeth Streets, and the trains at the famous Flinders St Station. It is surrounded by bustling inner CBD streets, with their cafes, restaurants, theatres, sporting venues, tourist attractions galore, shops, supermarkets and wine bars. Degreaves Lane, the Block Arcade cafes and Collins St shopping and are only short walk away
Nearby parks include Enterprize Park, Batman Park, Queen Victoria Gardens, Treasury Gardens and Flagstaff Gardens.
It is only a short walk to Chinatown, Melbourne Central shopping centre, the Bourke Street Mall, Carlton Gardens and Melbourne Museum/IMAX theatre and the aquarium are all close by.
There are many local attractions which are an easy walk or a very quick tram ride away.

It’s easy to get to Merigold on Collins. From the airport, you can just take a taxi, or you can hop on the Skybus to Southern Cross Station. From there, it’s a short walk and a free tram ride up Collins St to Swanston St, and Merigold is just across the road from where you get off the tram, and a few steps back to Manchester Lane

The trams in the Melbourne CBD are brilliant. Trams are only 20 metres away on Collins St or around the corner on Swanston St or down De Graves St on Flinders Lane. You can take a very short walk to Flinders St Station as well; if you want to go a bit further. Trams are free in the CBD!

From the owner
We knew we had to buy this apartment when we saw it, and have never regretted calling it ours. The location was perfect for us with the Elizabeth and Flinders Street trams mere meters away along with Flinders Street Station. We love the history of the building and the many hats it wore, (e.g. a paper factory circa 1905 and rag trade offices in the 80’s). At over 150 sqm it is a CBD rarity due to the spaciousness and high ceilings. It is also a 1⁄2 floor apartment, therefore is private and quiet. The distinct true warehouse features give the place so much character along with the solid timber hardwood floors, exposed red brick and the original solid timber columns. We furnished and decorated the apartment with the respect it deserves, and hope you enjoy it as much as we know you will.
