Our two storey apartment was built in 1810, is grade II listed and is part of the conservation area of Melbourne. Built by William Warren and Valentine Radford, it was traditionally the living quarters to a bakery below. It sits on floors two and three in a three storey building with a private entrance and it's own off street parking space to the rear.

With lots of original and traditional features, it has sash windows, a log burner and some quirky staircases for you to enjoy.

The space
A quirky blend of original and new. A newly fitted light and spacious kitchen with eating area, a cosy lounge with log burner and Sky Q and smart television (giving access to Netflix and Amazon Prime, etc.). There are two bedrooms; one quirky small double which fits a double futon sofa bed (the double futon is a tight fit but has storage space too) and and a large double room which takes up the whole top floor with wardrobe space. We have a newly replaced bathroom with a deep bathtub and a separate large shower. Our apartment is accessed by going upstairs - these are old and spiral slightly so those who struggle with stairs might find them a bit tricky. Our property is original and quirky and we really hope you love it as much as us.

The flat is above a commercial space which we also own. The ground floor is operated as a cocktail bar, which is open only at weekends. The capacity is only around 25 persons, so isn’t too lively. They occasionally have live music on Saturday evenings. Last orders are at 11pm, but your sleep won't be disturbed in the main top bedroom.

My wife and I are proud to offer our former home for all types of stays, long or short. We used to live in the apartment. It is ideally located on the middle of the shopping high street, and a short walk to a number of local bars, pubs and restaurants.

We love travelling, good food, gin and socialising with friends.

My mum (Karen) works part-time at Melbourne Hall. She cleans the property between stays, and handles the keys handover and departure. She used to work at Melbourne Post Office for 15 years, so will be more than happy to give recommendations on local places to eat or visit, so please don't hesitate to ask.

We're sure you'll have a lovely stay in Melbourne and love it as much as we do.
