Prestige and Glamour in Iconic The George

Forget The George Penthouse, this is The George Mansion apartment. A sanctuary, place of respite and pleasure in the heart of St Kilda, privately cocooned within iconic and historic heritage surroundings, a landmark since its inception, today a magnificent place of residence.

Known affectionately as the old "War Room" this enormous 170sqm (approx.) three-bedroom, two-bathroom residence stretching along the rear wing has been home to illustrious Melbourne personalities including music producers and Jet frontman Nic Cester.

Soaring beneath grand 14ft ceilings with original Baltic pine floorboards underfoot, the voluminous interiors interplay with the natural light and outlooks that capture the essence of its St Kilda surroundings. Ornate archways and five marble mantled fireplaces adorn the interior providing a nod to the home's fine pedigree and timeless glamour.

Italian Vistosi crystal pendant lights hang from the ornate ceiling roses including the largest ceiling rose in The George detailed in Vitale's "Eternal Spring" motif which regally crowns the dining room. Open, welcoming and spacious, the living room is bathed in a lovely reflection of light; while the updated granite kitchen is centered in the space with an island with breakfast bar, twin drawer dishwasher, AEG oven and the warmth of a rosewood finish.

Three beautiful bedrooms include the palatial main bedroom suite replete with comprehensive robes rising from floor-to-ceiling, grand fireplace, an elegant en suite with a bath and the finest Australian luxe wool carpet to create a warm and tranquil retreat. An enormous main bathroom with laundry, electric heating and two secure car spaces are just some of the additional features that propel this apartment into a league of its own.

Celebrating its 160th anniversary this year, The George has always been the bell-weather for St Kilda's fortunes from boom to bust. Built in 1857 for wealthy holidaymakers and rising to prominence in the 1980s as the epicentre of the punk scene before undergoing yet another transformation in the 90's under late local legend, the restauranteur-turned-developer Donlevy Fitzpatrick who oversaw the restoration of the building and rebirth of Fitzroy Street's dining culture.

With public transport options to the city and surrounds at your doorstep, alongside the palm-fringed beachfront and walking trails, there is no better time to invest in this iconic building than during the rebirth of Fitzroy Street with the long-awaited transformation of The Gatwick into luxury apartments and resurgence of entertainment offerings including high-end additions like OneSpaceTwo, Supernormal Canteen, Circa, POW kitchen, Araliya v Miss Hopper, Mahjong and mainstays like Fitzrovia for the brunching set or Di Stasio for the glitterati - all within a minute's walk.
