Sunny, quiet and comfortable, this modern apartment is right on the Yarra river, a short walk to the Abbotsford Convent, the Fitzroy/Collingwood bars, restaurants and eclectic shops. Public transport will take you to the city in 10 minutes.
This is a sunny, warm and homely apartment, tucked away down the quiet back streets of Abbotsford, right on the Yarra River. It has a bright open plan living area with timber floors and floor to ceiling windows, boasting great views of the city and Abbotsford Convent. There's a large separate bedroom with triple mirrored built in wardrobe, and a large balcony where you can sit amongst the succulents and enjoy the sunset over the city.
Abbotsford is the perfect place to stay while in Melbourne: 10 minutes from the city and a 2 minute walk along the river through the Childrens Farm where you'll feel like you're in the country. It's also walking distance from the trendy Fitzroy/Collingwood bars, eateries and boutiques.
Abbotsford is an eclectic area, with a mix of old industrial buildings, the Yarra river bushland and is minutes from Victoria street (mini Vietnam) with a vast range of pubs, some with a variety of live music. Three Bags Full cafe (reviewed as one of the best Coffee houses in Melbourne !) is a stones throw away.. Within a 15min walk is Smith Street Collingwood which has become a Melbourne eating destination with groovy dining at Saint Crispin's and a new gourmet ice creamery. Victoria street, home to Vietnamese Restaurants, now boasts Japanese and Korean noodle and beer bars as well. The Hive at the end of Little Charles street (on Victoria) has Woolworths, and Aldi supermarkets as well as the extremely busy Saigon Market with a huge array of fresh fruit and vegetables. The Abbotsford Convent has night markets, open air cinema, Lentil as Anything and Bakery (great place to hang out), and the lovely Collingwood Children's Farm if you want a taste of country life..
The whole apartment is yours!
The building is very secure, with double lift access from the undercover carpark and from street level.

I work in art department for film & television and in my free time I'm a designer and dreamer.
Between jobs I like to getaway. While I'm away you're very welcome to stay in my home. It's warm and cosy and I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do. :o)
