Description

The Space

{See also 'My Studio Room' &'My Petite Room' }

'My Loft Room’ with it's own bathroom, is one of four upstairs bedrooms, which once formed part of an exclusive small hotel run by my family. Each room has its own lock and key for guest's complete privacy.

This beautiful heritage building is situated in the most accessible part of South Yarra with the wonderful Royal Botanic Gardens at one end of the street, and Fawkner Park, with tennis courts and café, at the other end.

I occupy one of the rooms, and the other three rooms are available for guests. There is a private apartment at the rear of the building that is occupied by my parents when they are in town.

‘My Loft Room’ was once the loft above the stable of the original building.

It has:
o Key to your own room

o Leather couch

All bed linen, bath towels, feather pillows, and doonas (duvets/comforters) are provided.

The original en-suite bathrooms were installed in 1986 (when the property functioned as a boutique hotel), so are clean and functional, not glossy and new.

It is very easy to get around town from our property, with the tram stop only a 5 min walk away. Catch a tram into the City, St Kilda , Chapel St South Yarra, Fitzroy and Carlton (all within 30mins tram ride). South Yarra Train Station is also only a short tram ride away, or walk to the station in 10-15mins. The Melbourne bike share rack is close by should you wish to hire a bike, and The Flexicar spot is also nearby. You can also walk to the city, through the Royal Botanic Gardens, or the shopping mecca of Chapel St, in a leisurely 20 mins. The Rod Laver Arena (for the Australian Open & various concerts & events), MCG and the Albert Park Grand Prix track are also within walking distance. The National Gallery, Victorian Arts Centre, ACMI and the Malthouse Theatre are all around 20mins walk away.

The tennis courts in Fawkner Park hire out tennis rackets, should you wish to have a game. Plus there are pay-as-you-go BBQ areas in the Park and the famous Tan track around the Botanic Gardens is perfect for a walk or run.

There are many, many café’s, patisseries, and restaurants within walking distance. There is also a chemist, newsagent, grocer, and convenience store, 5mins walk from us.

I am a student & graphic artist, who also works in the food and hospitality industry, and have recently returned from study and work in Europe. I have just experienced living and working in a small hostel in Barcelona, which has inspired me to now welcome you to one of 'My Rooms'

I like to paint and draw and I'm lucky to live in a home that is filled with natural light.

I have lived in Melbourne my whole life and love living here. I ride my bike most places and find it a really easy city to get around.

I love travelling and meeting people from around the world. I look forward to welcoming you here to 'My Rooms' in South Yarra.
