PENTHOUSE, 50 CLAREMONT ST, SOUTH YARRA
Marshall White, Stonnington, 9822 9999. Marcus Chiminello, 0411 411 271 Private sale, offers close 5pm September 20
THIS penthouse is 20 storeys up but has a ‘backyard’ bigger than many Melbourne houses. The apartment — which occupies the entire top floor of its building — is flanked by 180sq m of terrace with a large alfresco dining deck, built-in barbecue, pond and spa, as well as synthetic grass to offer that backyard feel. Perhaps the outdoor area’s most striking feature is its view of the city and beyond. The “sky home” includes about 260sq m of internal space featuring an open-plan living and dining area with a striking suspended fireplace, a marble kitchen with Gaggenau and Liebherr appliances, and three bedrooms including a main with a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite.
