    Description

    As this is a primary residence to the owner, it has been listed for the specific purpose of arranging an annual exchange for the two weeks of the Australian Open, with someone who has a suitable ski chalet in Europe or North America - and regularly attends the Open. However, there is ad hoc availability at all other times, with up to six weeks of use possible.

    It is perfectly positioned, a 10 minute walk along the Yarra to the Rod Laver arena. It is located at the Caroline St end of Shipley St, a short stroll from Toorak Rd. One of a complex of five, this is the standout apartment in the building, cantilevered out on the first level to give a wonderful elevated tree lined vista from the panoramic front full width front glass wall. 

    The apartment is 185m2, on one level - configured as two bedrooms but easily altered to 3 bedrooms if required. Six years old, it has recently been completely refurbished.  Highlights include travertine floors, in floor heating, reverse cycle air conditioning, expansive Poliform kitchen with oven, convection oven, gas cooktop, and Liebheur fridge. The furnishings include a Minotti sofa, original Hans Wegner dining suite, and Poltrona Frau chaise. The ensuite and kitchen are Poliform. The beds are king size. The laundry facilities are excellent. 

    A Savant home automation system allows iPhone control of all sound and vision, lights, climate, security and blinds. 

    The audiovisual system is by B&O with TV's and sound in both bedrooms and the lounge. The master bedroom TV is a 75" Avant. A fourth B&O TV can be provided on request for the third bedroom. All streaming services are available and the wireless network is excellent, with download speeds of 80mbs. 

    The apartment is extremely private, with direct access by lift from the below ground garage, with three car parks. There are 5 apartments in the building, all owner occupied, with no children. A Range Rover Sport can be made available. 

    The owner has declined offers of $15000 - $20 000 /week during this period for the apartment, and is hopeful that a chalet of that range, during peak season, could be available out there, owned by a keen tennis fan.
