Perfect South Yarra location, as new apartment in quiet residential street

My home was totally rebuilt recently from an old stables built in 1888 to provide clean, light and bright apartment-style living suitable for a couple with an additional guest room with ensuite bathroom. A recent tenant wrote "Roger's apartment is in a perfect location, an easy 30 mins walk to Federation Square, through the beautiful Botanic Gardens. Alternatively you can jump on the tram and take a 15 min ride." The tram can take you to Melbourne University and RMIT University.

The upper level has a large double bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, adjacent bathroom with shower and large loft or study with windows looking down the street through the tree tops. Downstairs there is a living room, guest bedroom (fold-out double sofa bed) flat panel TV and ensuite bathroom with shower and kitchen/ dining area opening to a small courtyard where you can also park your car if required. A residential car parking permit is provided and it may be possible to arrange the use of my VW Jetta in and around Melbourne but only on sealed roads. We are situated a 5 min walk from Domain Corner with it's many cafes, restaurants, organic bakery, food store and all-hours convenience store.

About Me
After studying Engineering at Monash University in Australia I then completed my MBA at UC Berkeley. After working in London in investment banking for 6 years I returned to Australia, where for the last 26 years I have been a pioneer in the Australian certified organic industry sourcing products all over the world. I now split my time between Melbourne and France. My interests include architecture, modern design, the arts as well as working with communities growing organic food in South America and SE Asia.
