The Board Room – An iconic and historic Melbourne residence

A statement of grandeur from the city’s maritime age, this majestic “Board Room” apartment is a landmark property in terms of stateliness, luxury and amenity beautifully positioned in the city’s west end on the corner of Flinders Lane.

An award-winning landmark since its inception, the apartment is privately cocooned within the iconic heritage surroundings of the Port Authority Building designed in flamboyant Beaux Arts style by Sydney Smith Ogg & Serpell in 1929. Today a magnificent place of residence, this three bedroom, two bathroom apartment with secure parking for 2.5 cars is one of Melbourne’s most noteworthy town residences.

Featured in Vogue Living, the 35 square (approx.) interiors have been renovated by SJB Interiors to reflect the richness of the building but also Melbourne in the 21st century offering flexibility, liveability and purity of detail.

Highly decorated, the heritage interiors are backdropped by regal ornate ceilings, handsome blackwood paneling, beautiful Jarrah, Ash and Blackwood parquetry flooring, bronze light fittings, soaring imperial marble fireplace mantels and banks of majestic bronze fanlight windows taking in the surrounding plane tree lined streetscape with private views towards Southbank.

The outstanding craftmanship is testament to the power, wealth and extravagance of the Harbour commissioners presiding over maritime Melbourne, most notably in the board room which is the keystone of this illustrious home. A remarkable space, a flagship for entertaining yet intimate for daily living with the softening inclusions of a marble kitchen, ethanol fireplace and moveable bar balancing the classical architecture. A second marble kitchen adds additional flexibility to the internal footprint that also hosts a refined sitting room and handsome study.

Luxurious natural materials respond elegantly to the buildings original design including the three bedroom accommodation that features two bedrooms with silk faced wardrobes and marble ensuites, one with a freestanding bath. Practical modern appointments include two Gaggenau ovens, central heating and a large storage cage.

Crafted from granite with a grand foyer and internal lift, the exclusive Port Authority Building is situated within walking distance of Melbourne’s financial and Law Court districts, a stroll to Southbank restaurants, the Yarra River and Crown Entertainment complex and enjoys transport options in every direction including trams and trains from Flinders Street and Spencer Street stations.

Melbourne Secrets

Melbourne, unlike cities, such as Sydney, doesn’t feature harbour views. However, it is a stately European-style city that emanates charm and elegance. And rather than ‘screaming for attention’, has a quiet gentility with its many laneways filled with surprises.
