306/118 Russell Street, Melbourne
Paris-End Hero Apartment
Proudly Sold by Gina Donazzan
First built in 1948 the Russell Street Telephone Exchange and Post Office was converted in 1999 and designed by Melbourne’s own Nonda Katsalidis into the highly regarded Hero Apartments, bearing all the distinctive flair that he is so renowned for. This building is not only of historic significance but is also located in the heart of Melbourne’s Paris-End, with the finest array of bars, eateries, theatres and shopping at your doorstep.
Arranged over 2 levels, spanning approx. 92sqm, this loft, warehouse-style residence boasts soaring ceiling heights and towering windows overlooking Little Collins Street. The entire upstairs level is a sprawling master bedroom- larger than some CBD apartments itself- with a quiet reading nook and study area completing this private oasis and offering the ideal flexible space to work from home if desired.
Downstairs a second spacious bedroom offers both BIRs and under stair storage, an added advantage to this thoughtful city home. The open-plan kitchen features dishwasher, gas stove and stylish stone benchtops, plus an array of cupboard space. Separate laundry adjacent to kitchen is a delightful addition. Huge bathroom with bathtub and separate, fully-tiled shower completes the residence.
Fitted with split-system air conditioning and wall heaters to ensure year-round comfort, the apartment has also been upgraded to state-of-the-art video intercom providing privacy and security. With a high percentage of active owner-occupiers, Hero Apartments is dedicated to sustainability, offering bicycle storage, rooftop solar panels, a worm farm, charity bin, and swap area. Residents also benefit from a dedicated on-site Building Manager, secure mail boxes and two recently upgraded lifts.
