Yarralumla 1939 - A Moderne Marvel Tucked Away in Marne

I hadn't heard of the Moderne style of architecture until researching the history of this amazing building, and it is a fitting style given what this rare opportunity for a Domain Precinct apartment offers. Architectural historian Richard Guy Wilson characterized the style by the eclectic co-existence of "traditionalism and modernism." I couldn't think of a more apt summary, as 3/4 Marne Street offers all the benefits of a solid older-style apartment as well as the chance for the incoming buyer to add and make the most of modern convenience. Finishing touches like the custom built-in-robes and study nook set on the warm timber floors throughout make this a property that you should make the time to inspect.

For those that don't care much for history and architecture, I feel for you, but there is still plenty on offer for you here. A first floor, one bedroom apartment, larger than most, with incredible natural light in both the living area and the bedroom - hard to beat. A proper kitchen, rare in the apartment market, sits between the terrazzo bathroom and the expansive living zone. This floorplan shouldn't be underrated, and the owner has enjoyed it as both a residence and an investment for many years.

The Moderne style provides a dramatic contrast with the Revival styles of Marne Street, and unit three provides for a dramatic contrast for any new apartment you might compare it to. Set adjacent to Toorak Road and Fawkner Park, a short walk from the Botanic Gardens and Domain Road shops, as well all the best that Melbourne has to offer, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
