Iconic style in convenient location

PRIVATE INSPECTIONS WELCOME ANYTIME

A rare opportunity is on offer to own a truly unique apartment in one of Geelong’s most iconic buildings, the Burnham Flats. The top-level, three-bedroom home, spanning over the entire second level, is an outstanding example of the Art Deco period, inside and out, with an eye-catching colour scheme and curved balcony taking in views across Geelong and Corio Bay.

The block, built in 1935, was originally four separate units. Now the two apartments on the upper floor have been combined and updated to create a stunning spacious home boasting an array of well-preserved character features. And with a second separate entrance, there’s also the option to utilise the front bedroom of the apartment as a large separate office, studio space or even short-term rental accommodation.

Wonderful original Art Deco detail is on display from the moment you enter the property – from light fittings and etched glass and mirrors to fireplaces, timber cabinetry and original bathroom fittings. The light-filled lounge includes an Art Deco fireplace, while the separate dining room features original built-in display cabinets and storage and double doors leading out to a balcony.

The modernised kitchen is another unique space, with striking black and teal cabinetry featuring curved corners reflecting the external architecture of the apartments complemented by stainless-steel appliances for a contemporary lifestyle. The bathrooms are also magnificent examples of the Art Deco period, including original tiling, tapware and baths.

All three bedrooms are spacious and enjoy access to their own bathrooms, with the highlight the expansive front bedroom with walk-in robe, private entrance, fireplace, space for a sofa or desk and the knockout views.

The home has its own secure entry, a single remote lock-up garage, second car park off the rear lane, separate workshop and an on title large, private north-facing garden (not shared with other apartments) featuring curved high fencing in keeping with the building’s heritage.

Other features include central heating, timber floors, timber venetian blinds, intercom, a large separate laundry and loads of storage.

An easy stroll to the CBD and waterfront, Geelong train station, Deakin University and Gordon TAFE, the hospital precinct, GMHBA Stadium and on the doorstep of Pakington St’s cafes and shops.
