The Block 2019: Jesse & Mel – House 5

Effortlessly blending 1850s period class with contemporary grace, designer opulence, and exquisite attention to detail, spread out over three considered levels, this incredible 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom bayside home right in the heart of St Kilda is a residential marvel.

Jesse and Mel have crafted a residence that retains much of its original Victorian detail, while further incorporating stunning modern features and cutting edge design elements to create a stylish oasis.

A front formal lounge is the ultimate example of perfectly balancing the old with the new. Victorian cornicing, detailed skirting and architraves, and a beautiful ceiling rose are complemented by custom cabinetry, modern chandelier lighting, gas log fireplace, and Calacatta marble border with a carpet inlay to produce a superb living space that is spacious and private.

The generous first floor guest bedroom showcases soft colour tones, grey velvet feature wall, and a sublime ensuite with wet room that contrasts a striking white freestanding bath with surrounding dark tiled walls.

The master bedroom the level above has the same stylish continuity as the guest bedroom, and delivers a warming gas log fireplace, another arresting velvet feature wall, and a study nook, on top of an open walk-in robe that has terrific natural light thanks to a clever skylight.

The master bedroom ensuite takes on a classical look with Carrara marble tiling and refined chrome tapware. There is also a fixed ceiling double rain shower, dual vanity ensuite, private toilet, and a freestanding bath sitting right in front of the shower screen.

The main bathroom on the first floor is splashed with gorgeous travertine floor and wall tiling, dark timber cabinetry, and a double rain shower featuring a sizeable block seat that is both practical and eye-catching.

Full windows in the sizeable guest bedroom allows you to wake up to magnificent views of the breathtaking courtyard below. The dark cabinetry and built-in robes, plus a handy study nook, further keeps with the consistent style and design of the rest of the property.

The Caesarstone kitchen is designed for practicality while never skimping on stylish flair. An abundance of storage options includes a butler’s pantry with oven and dishwasher, while elegant timber veneer cabinetry, state of the art Bosch appliances including a coffee machine and 900mm gas oven and cooktop, and integrated fridge and freezer make this the ultimate space for home cooks.

Stunning chevron floors are an opulent inclusion that dominate the open plan living and dining zone, as well as featuring in other areas of the property. A Cannon Lattitude fireplace, speakers including a sub-woofer built into the wall to resemble a modern art piece, and direct views of the striking courtyard are other enticing highlights of this showstopping living and meals space.

The enclosed courtyard is arguably the most spectacular outdoor space ever created on The Block. A tall mosaic tiled green feature wall creeps all the way up the towering residence to offer a jaw-dropping background as you entertain friends and family. And entertaining will indeed be a breeze thanks to a full BBQ kitchen and convenient built-in seating.

The fourth bedroom located on the first floor is a model of versatility. This enormous bedroom features a WIR and ensuite which has a unique Juliet balcony offering views out to the enclosed courtyard and feature wall. This room has also been designed for flexible living and can be effortlessly converted into another living room.

Two incredible balconies off the first floor guest bedroom and top floor master bedroom promise generous covered alfresco zones where you can wake up and enjoy your morning latte as you soak in the buzzing energy of St Kilda below. The balcony off the master bedroom further showcases unmissable vistas of Port Phillip Bay which will never be built out!

For further alfresco delights, journey out to the stunning top floor rooftop which is an open and sun soaked entertaining zone that includes a BBQ kitchen and inspired glimpses of the city skyline. This outdoor haven sits directly above the double remote garage which has convenient access via Dalgety Lane.

Other features of this home include a striking open wine cellar off the ground floor hallway, additional upstairs living retreat, laundry with Bosch appliances, heating and cooling throughout, and so much more!

With a location to savour, you’re positioned just moments to the iconic Fitzroy Street with amazing restaurants and bars, Albert Park Lake, Barkly Street and Acland Street shops and eateries, St Kilda Beach, Chapel Street shopping, and terrific public transport options.
