Available for rent throughout the year and sporting six bedrooms with integrated bathrooms a stay at Villa Amanzi would set you back by anywhere between depending on the season and demand. A small price to pay if you are looking for a weekend luxury getaway clad in complete sumptuousness.
Designed to the highest specifications by architects Bates Smart the penthouse that sits atop the award-winning Melburnian building on St Kilda Road is one of the finest inner city living spaces in Australia. The wrap-around observation deck gives unbroken vistas of Melbourne’s central business district the Royal Botanical Gardens and Port Philip.
This superb penthouse apartment is spread across two floors and flanked on all sides with expansive balconies offering a 360-degree panorama of the surrounding Adelaide inner city. The penthouse extends over 700 square meters featuring two floors of living space with the emphasis firmly on high-class entertainment. The upstairs area includes a movie theater with luxury seating a billiards room complete with library kitchen facilities and a fully equipped gym.
Spread across 3-floors there is an elevator and even a temperature-controlled wine cellar so that you can store up wine of your choice. The interiors are clad in some of the best décor that you could possibly hope for and the exterior matches this with its stone columns and walls of glass. Here is a home that offers absolutely everything that you could ask for.
All of the apartment’s architectural materials have been sensitively selected to add a contemporary feel to the apartment both contrasting and complementing the historic frontage of the historic building beneath. The main structure is clad in a lightweight silver and white Alucobond skin; limestone and Calcutta marble stonework and lime washed timber floorboards and decking complete the elegant design.
On the inside you see wide open spaces and plenty of modern architecture and design that uses sleek and well defined lines. The generous use of glass in the form of floor to ceiling glass windows offers unobstructed views of the sea at all times and from all levels of the villa. An array of balcony spaces private hubs pool deck and lush green surroundings ensure that you spend as much time outside as you do indoors.
Maybe it is just nostalgia or maybe the fact that one can never go back in time revisit the memories of the past but everyone of us is fond of those ‘wonder years’ of the past. And this home in Melbourne might well have that same allure for many who might look back at times that were simpler but also happier.
