Contemporary urban living doesn't get much better than this. Perfectly combined sleek design elements, generous proportions, and clever storage meld seamlessly with striking architectural details, a dramatic stairway entrance, supreme functionality, and of course, an outstanding location. As you drive to the end of Waltham Place – a charming, historic precinct centered around a circa 1881 brick factory built by Henry 'Money' Miller that was later leased to John Bedggood and functioned as a shoe factory - immediately you'll be intrigued and struck by a sense of history, privacy, and exclusivity! No 8 Waltham Place occupies the former garden space...

of the Bedggood Shoe Factory. Attached to the old factory means the exterior wall has been sensitively incorporated and is now one of the interior walls of this inspiring inner-city home. You'll notice textural elements and bluestone blocks as you enter. The excitement builds as you cast your eye on this multistory home clad in steel and glass. An extra-large, tandem two-car garage with a concrete floor and internal access is on the ground floor, it's easily entered via a roller door, simply make your way down to the end of Waltham Place and drive straight in. Split over three sprawling levels you'll find room for just about everything and everyone. The ground floor also houses one of three bedrooms and one of three bathrooms.   This striking room opens to a lushly planted, private terrace, it's fitted with robes, a functional in-built desk that echoes industrial chic and there is lovely carpet underfoot. This room also lends itself to a home office if the need arises. A handy, newly renovated guest WC with a shower is in the hallway just outside, it's stylishly tiled in a sophisticated, mottled porcelain tile. Further along is the Euro laundry with a sink and an additional under stair alcove large enough for an armchair or an armoire. One level up is where bedrooms two and three are located, both have luxurious carpet and walk-in-robes robes – the bedroom at the front enjoys a sunny position and glimpses of a fragrant climbing rose, it also has direct access to the smart central bathroom with a large shower decorated in an elegant, neutral color scheme. The bedroom at the rear has a distinct hotel-like feel with church-spire and rooftop glimpses and a luxurious oversized bathroom. Muted coral and sparkling, off-white tiles add a hint of glamour to the spacious, spa-like ensuite. The expansive living zone is at the top – an undeniably enticing space that's instantly welcoming and drop-dead-gorgeous.   Your lucky guests will be spoilt when wining and dining here. There is ample room for a huge dining table down one end and fabulous sofas down the other end, while the kitchen takes center position. It's punctuated by an exquisite, Arabescato marble-topped island, a five-burner Bosch stove embedded in stainless steel surrounds, and all the usual suspects you'd expect in a first-class kitchen. A tasteful mix of timber and light, ebony cabinetry will easily hide all your kitchen paraphernalia and your coffee machine and fridge have a home under the stairs. A sun-drenched balcony with stunning views opens from the lounge and a sleek gas fire will keep you cozy in cooler months. On the roof is where you'll find the show-stopping terrace - this is what inner-city living is all about! A short and sturdy staircase brings you to unparalleled views over Richmond and the CBD. Here, you can enjoy what very few get to experience, the city skyline, sunsets, and of course iconic inner-city rooftop views. Surrounded by heritage, history, and architecture you'll never tire of lingering barbecues, sunset drinks, NYE fireworks, and the oh-so-cool scenery.   Inspections are by appointment only. Please contact a listing agent to book a time.
