There’s nothing ordinary about Whitlam Place. Dynamic and enduring urban living lies at the heart of this bespoke one-bedroom Fitzroy apartment, where comfortability and relaxed sophistication can be found. An enchanting compact design encourages a slower pace while an internal courtyard and views of adjoining green space and Fitzroy Town Hall add a touch of European urban style. You’re on the edge of the CBD and situated in the heart of the creative Fitzroy community.
This award-winning boutique residential development boasts a concrete exterior, irregular angled and curved windows and a cheerful welcome of neon lights and terrazzo tiling. It’s no surprise then that the unique and creative design continues inside Whitlam Place. High exposed concrete ceilings, a pair of oversized, black-framed upside-down arched windows and a glass enclosed interior courtyard take centre-stage.
It’s a dramatic welcome but there’s a high level of comfort in the open plan kitchen, dining and living room so you won’t feel at all reluctant to throw off your shoes. Timber flooring and a neutral palette add a softness to the concrete ceiling and courtyard wall finish. The apartment is light-filled and organised so that a wall separates this main living space from the alluring main bedroom and bathroom, while the courtyard is visible from both spaces.
All you need to worry about is choosing from a multitude of cosy sitting spots and taking in the parkland and Fitzroy Town Hall views. That’s on show from study nook as well as the single-wall kitchen, which features high-end marble benchtops and splashback. A long narrow dining table welcomes all-day casual dining while the adjacent living area is an intimate space for an afternoon of reading and relaxed conversation. For a quiet moment, step out through the glass door and get comfortable in the stylish interior courtyard. Statement window coverings bring privacy and allow you to soak up the sunshine and the urban views. And you’ll want to stay in bed just a bit longer as you enjoy that same outlook from the snugness of the serene main bedroom. The sophisticated bathroom – which has the convenience of dual access – offers a soothing experience with elegant floor to ceiling white tiles and terrazzo flooring.
Wander to the adjacent park and through the surrounding vibrant streets of Fitzroy – including Brunswick St. and Johnston St. - where there’s no shortage of fabulous culinary offerings, art galleries, intimate entertainment venues, cocktail bars and vintage stores. The Melbourne CBD is less than three kilometres away and you’re only a few minutes’ walk from the nearest tram stop. Within easy reach, either by tram or foot, is Melbourne Museum and Carlton Gardens. And if you’re seeking a truly authentic Melbourne city experience, prepare for a fun day out and hit the pavement.
