Exquisite Melbourne penthouse takes luxury to a new level
Bidding began last month for the 808-square-metre Grand Pavilion Penthouse atop Melbourne's posh Eastbourne building. The spacious estate will sit on the top floor of the 11-story residential structure and is being developed in collaboration with Mirvac, an Australian property group.
Among the penthouse's exquisite details are soaring 3.6 metre ceilings, walls of windows, hand-tooled stone finishes, and a six-car garage. An outdoor infinity-edge pool and terrace overlook the verdant 26-hectare Fitzroy Gardens and the skyline of Melbourne's CBD.
The buyer will have the opportunity to consult with local interior design firm Bates Smart and landscape specialist Sam Barber to customise the terrace — also known as a "sky garden."
Occupants of the Eastbourne building can enjoy exclusive access to a special residence club that offers a theatre and dining room as well as a dedicated concierge, business centre, and gymnasium.
Bids over $A15.3 million for the penthouse will be accepted until mid-November. (thegrandpavilion.mirvac.com)
