$7 million-$7.7 million

Ladies and gentleman, as you pick up your lower jaw off the floor in “the boardroom” of this luxury abode, please admire its rich jarrah, ash and blackwood parquetry; and note this is just the start of an extra-ordinary experience within a stately west-CBD building of heritage significance.

In this rare, L-shaped corner apartment, you’ll see majestic bronze fanlight windows, blackwood wall panelling, oversized marble fireplace mantels, bronze light fittings and ornate coffered and decorative ceilings; all evidence of the importance of Melbourne’s maritime and commercial development that is administered from this commanding circa-1929 Port Authority Building at the corner of Flinders Lane.

The building, with a polished-granite exterior and grand foyer, has architectural significance as a scrupulously crafted example of beaux arts-influenced Greek-revival architecture designed by Sydney Smith, Ogg & Serpell.

Dominating the first-floor apartment renovated by SJB Interiors is the boardroom, now a vast and handsome living and dining room with a striking kitchen and movable bar. Further accommodation (including the former chairman’s and secretary’s offices) comprises a study, lounge room, second marble kitchen, two en-suited bedrooms and another bedroom/retreat. There are two parking spaces.

Kay & Burton’s Ross Savas invites private sale offers.
