If you love the timeless elegance of ART DECO architecture, you're going to fall in love with Kia Ora!
Minutes to the city this gorgeous private tree-lined leafy haven is an Art Deco Masterpiece built in an era of elegance, gardens and ample personal space. ‘Kia-Ora’ is classic Art Deco and one of Melbourne’s landmark buildings with fabulous period architecture. You have direct access to Fawkner Park at the rear and trams at your doorstep from St Kilda Road. The Botanical Gardens and Albert Park are just a short walk away.
Located on the lower level, this 1936 classic Art Deco apartment consists of 2 oversized bedrooms, a stylish central bathroom with Euro laundry + a study/sunroom — with approximately 14 squares of expansive living space and beautiful high 2.76m ceilings. Oozing with charm and character — features include stepped-tray ceilings, wide doorways, original doorknobs, and carpeted hardwood floors throughout. Generous spaces provide exceptional expansive areas – the living room has the original open fireplace and the adjoining dining room overlooking a solid undercover balcony. A remodelled kitchen with Smeg appliances, a rolling island bench with Caesarstone countertops, subway tiled walls, recessed ceiling and accent mood lighting, and stainless steel appliances. The bathroom, done in white subway tiles, has a separate shower stall, marble mosaic floor tile, and recessed lighting.
Extensively maintained, the building’s authentic features are beautifully preserved and intact — the solid triple brick thick walls provide an incredible cool respite from Melbourne’s hottest summers and retain the heat internally throughout the coldest winter. Set amongst beautifully landscaped lush gardens and trees with outdoor lighting, along with a large common, yet private courtyard.
The apartment comes with a great home office and sunroom off the main bedroom with views opening to an enchanting garden! Designed by Lewis Levy c1936 and built for the Dixon family who owned the ‘Kia Ora’ cordial brand. If you appreciate the timeless elegance of Art Deco architecture, you’re going to love living here!
