A luxurious two-level penthouse office block, dubbed the swankiest offices in Australia, has hit the market for more than $6.5 million.
The office block, which won Interior Design Magazine’s Best Interior Design Award in 2015, boasts steam rooms and a full-service rooftop bar fit with beer taps and a teppanyaki grill.
The property overlooks Chapel Street in South Yarra, Melbourne’s south-east, and real estate agents say buyers could transform the office suite into a two-storey penthouse apartment.
The office suite was built by property development group Vic Land’s Bill McNee, but is on the market as he is looking to move his employees to a larger office, Commercial Real Estate reported.
The suite, at 529 Chapel Street, has multiple luxurious rooms, including an enormous office with silk carpeting, shelving over a window to views of South Yarra and a black timber desk and wall paneling.
On the rooftop terrace, grass lines the outside of the flashy entertainment area and the luxurious gazebo covering the bar is fit with lighting for evening drinks.
Inside one of the conference rooms, a green velvet day bed and black fireplace allow maximum comfort and each room has automated doors.
The suite was designed by architect Travis Walton and was a finalist in two categories of the 2015 Interior Design Excellence Awards in Australia.
‘It is not only the outstanding design that sets this property apart, but also its flexibility in terms of future use,’ Colliers International’s Daniel Wolman said.
‘The building has the potential to be converted to become South Yarra’s most elite and luxurious penthouse or a sought-after new hospitality hot spot.’
Real estate agents expect the vacant office block to fetch over $6.5 million. Mr McGee said he wanted the suite to be used for both business and pleasure.
