Elevated living high above the clouds.
Encompassing the entire 82nd floor of Melbourne’s tallest building – the gold-adorned Eureka tower – comes this heady, luxury apartment.
Offering 5-bedrooms, 5-bathrooms and 8-car parking, the residence is accessed by a private lift and boasts 360 degrees of greater Melbourne with floor-to-ceiling
The residence arrives with bespoke furniture selected specifically to suit the spaces with direction by Molecule Studio and architecture and interior design firm Fitt de Felice.
Inside the uniquely shaped apartment – penned by Fender Katsalidis – the residence can be divided into an east and west wing.
The east wing sees the majority of the common areas, with the gallery, sitting, living and formal dining and kitchen flowing together. Here, the space soaks in panoramic views of greater Melbourne through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
The heart of the home – the kitchen – sees a natural stone finish and European appliances with a concealed and equally appointed Butler’s pantry attached alongside a 1400 bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar.
The west wing of the residence sees the accommodation. Here one finds the home’s five bedrooms – each of which is complete with its own ensuite.
The expansive master suite includes an oversized ensuite complete with marble tiling, an Italian imported Kos spa as the focal point – offering more breathtaking views – and ‘his’ and ‘hers’ walk-in robes.
Elsewhere the home is privy to a large home office – which doubles as a potential boardroom and a formal lounge.
Located in one of Melbourne’s most coveted suburbs, the residence is nearby the city’s best including Southbank Promenade, Crown Casino, world-class boutiques, dining and more.
The home is listed with RT Edgar’s Gerald Betts (+61 418 371 855). Offers around $25 million; rtedgar.com

With a focus on the idea of home as sanctuary, this hefty tome offers insight into the mind of the designer with points on where to find inspiration, meeting client briefs and the importance of relationships.

If there was ever a book title for our times, then this is it. With a subtitle of Playful Homes and Cheerful Living, this book champions fun in interior design, with bold and bright homes from around the world to delight and inspire.

Released last year, this is the third volume from award-winning interior designer Greg Natale.
