One-bedroom apartment in East Melbourne fetches $1.45 million

WOULD you pay more than $1 million for a one-bedroom apartment? How about for one with a dressing room the size of most bedrooms and an ensuite to match?

A buyer has just forked out $1.45 million to secure a luxury property in one of East Melbourne’s most exclusive buildings.

The apartment, at 202/150 Clarendon St, East Melbourne, spans 155sq m and has all the fancy frills.

The bedroom, dressing room and ensuite combo take up almost half the floorplan.

Alexkarbon, North Melbourne, director Alex Puglia said the property suited select buyers, though quite a few had come out of the woodwork when it was listed.

It sold to a buyer who lived on the Mornington Peninsula and wanted a base in the CBD. “A lot of people were taken away with the overall space,” Mr Puglia said. The apartment has a large living zone with gas fireplace, opening to a covered terrace with water feature.

Mr Puglia said the sellers were the property’s original owners, who bought the apartment when the Mercy Hospital development was new in 2009. RP Data records show the apartment last sold in December 2009 for $1.15 million. But it was far from the priciest property in the building. There is currently a seven-bedroom apartment on the eighth floor on the market with a $22.9 million-plus asking price.

The price guide is listed in US dollars ($20 million-plus) on realestate.com.au, suggesting listing agent Dingle Partners, Melbourne, is looking abroad for a buyer.

It can be used as three separate apartments with their own entrances, or one massive residence.
