Vendor Craig Grose bought the apartment off-the-plan and moved in three years ago. As both he and his partner liked to cook, they made a number of modifications to the kitchen, installing a pull-out pantry and top-of-the-range appliances.
The kitchen also features a large island bench with integrated lighting.
The master bedroom is served by a bathroom with walk-in shower and heated towel rail, finished with a concrete palette. The two other bedrooms are served by a matching central bathroom and a discreet Euro laundry.
The living areas feature warming spotted-gum wood floors underfoot.
The apartment is situated on a corner, with only two common walls and easterly views to Studley Park.
I thought the floor plan was excellent because there is absolutely no wasted space, with good-sized living and dining areas- Craig Grose
"We entertain a lot and the whole place is very functional for that," Grose said. "I thought the floor plan was excellent because there is absolutely no wasted space, with good-sized living and dining areas."
The locality proved to be a surprise for Grose. "I think Abbotsford is a real hidden secret of Melbourne," he says. "I had lived in South Yarra and I never thought I would cross the river, but Abbotsford is great. It is green and we have a beautiful outlook.
"I walk to the city, I walk everywhere. It is so peaceful. The cafes around here are spectacular and there are new ones popping up all the time."
In terms of shopping, 200 metres up the road is The Hive shopping complex, with a Woolworths and boutique shops. About 1km away is Victoria Gardens and Bridge Rd, with its shopping and restaurants
