Rare architectural gem in the heart of Port Melbourne

Multi-award winners Technē Architecture and Interior Design have breathed new life into this historic bluestone terrace house and, respecting its heritage, have created an inner city oasis that is now a jewel in Port Melbourne's real estate crown.

With four bedrooms, two bathrooms, powder room, gym, indoor-outdoor living, secure garage all defined by understated elegance, this alluring home in a secluded pocket of Bay Street is just a short walk to its vibrant shops and cafes.

Built in 1865 as The President Lincoln Hotel, the property became The Gipps Land Hotel, then a series of shops before conversion to a double-storey residence which has remained within the same family for the past 30+ years.

The broad archway in the façade, once a carriageway, now frames the entry to the secure lock-up garage. Inside this unique building, a wide entry opens to the living and dining rooms, set beneath four metre high original pressed metal ceilings. European oak flooring with underfloor heating enhances the comfort level. The kitchen features American oak cabinetry, terrazzo bench tops, a 900mm Fisher & Paykel freestanding cooker with induction cooktop, and integrated fridge. The large butler's pantry, laundry and powder room are also finished to the same luxurious specifications.

Steel-framed glass doors provide a wonderful connection to the courtyard garden where original bluestones make up the back wall. The courtyard connects via outdoor shower to a sports room / gym which converts to a tandem garage. This large, flexible room could equally become a workspace or art studio. Above it, loft storage with lined cabinets and benches is accessed by retractable gas-sprung stairs.

Upstairs, the four bedrooms include the master suite at the front which overlooks the greenery through double-glazed windows with European-style timber shutters. It comprises a custom walk-in wardrobe of floor-to-ceiling oak storage and a sublime terrazzo-finished ensuite. Three more bedrooms share an equally impressive central bathroom.

Features include gallery style art hanging rails, linen curtains, Zip tap for sparkling and filtered water, pure wool carpets, abundant storage and pedestal tiles in the courtyard. Eco-friendly features include solar, heat pump, Honeywell Evohome zoned hydronic heating and smart home control.

Executives and families alike are sure to love this home's absolute convenience. Stroll to shops, cafes, schools, the Library, South Melbourne Market, the light rail, and the beach. When the office beckons, the CBD and Docklands are a short tram ride or cycle away.
