Expressions of Interest: Closing on Wednesday 30th of June at 5.00pm (unless sold prior)
Situated in Nightingale Brunswick East, a sustainable boutique 38 apartment development by Clarke Hopkins Clarke Architecture and interiors by Breathe Architecture, this two bedroom 69sqm plus 16 sqm courtyard apartment may be in one of the country's ground-breaking developments, boasting a NatHERS (Nationwide Housing Energy Rating Scheme) rating of 7.5 stars and is 100 percent fossil fuel free.
The fossil fuel-free building operations and features such as recycled timber flooring, high concrete exposed ceilings with feature pipes, and solar roof panels. The latter powering common areas.
The western sun-drenched 16 sqm quiet courtyard with embedded planters for the avid edible gardener and room for outdoor dining is perfect for the young family or pet owner.
This apartment features high exposed concrete ceilings, two double bedrooms with BIRs, the master bedroom with courtyard aspect, recycled wooden flooring and dimmable lights throughout, wooden bathroom vanity and hidden storage behind expansive glass mirrors and a shower over deep bath with bluestone tiled flooring.
The expansive open plan living room with floor to ceiling double glazed windows and sliding door has room for the largest dining room table.
With a perfectly designed set back bespoke kitchen (but still open plan), it is a stand out for a two bedroom apartment boosting generous storage with separate pantry. Perfect for the Master Chef!
Including 2 Fisher and Paykel dish drawers, induction cooktop, white subway tiles and electric oven, it is also family sized, but most importantly you can cook and entertain your guests around the extra wide island bench.
Crossflow ventilation abounds, creating a cooling breeze when opening the front door and west facing balcony doors.
The impressive master bedroom also boasts floor to ceiling double glazed sliding doors to the west-facing courtyard.
Sustainable housing is great for the environment, but also the hip pocket, with long-term reduced energy costs. An embedded green electricity network with no gas bills means our current owners spend much less on electricity bills.
The passive design does not require air-conditioning, hence reducing heating and power bills and the highly efficient heat pumps which power shared hydronic heating and hot water systems reduce power bills as well - heating and hot water bills are included in the body corporate fee. The individual apartment electricity bill is only approximately $50 per month.
Featuring a storage cage and undercover car space for ultimate convenience and secure bike storage for more than one bike to suit the avid bike rider.
The breathtaking community rooftop garden with 360 views provides a strong sense of community where residents meet to nurture the north facing community vegetable garden and harvest vegetables for their own use. The enormous communal laundry with Fisher and Paykel washing machines creates a friendly meeting place (note: this apartment also has its own washing machine for added convenience). The rooftop area includes a large community dining table and outdoor space, which is rare and ideal for children or grandchildren.
A second communal first floor terrace is situated adjacent to the apartment with additional wicking beds and a tucked away dining alcove extending the outdoor living space beyond the apartment.
Located on the corner of Nicholson and Miller streets in Brunswick East (on the quiet side of the building), NGBE has direct access to the 96 tram line to the University and Medical Precinct, CBD and St Kilda, Langdon Reserve, Balfe park and is within walking distance to the Merri Creek trail, all just 5km from Melbourne's CBD. In time, greenery will overtake Nightingale Brunswick East.
With a popular cafe below, restaurants, shopping and local schools moments away, this apartment combines sustainable living with the ideal urban village.
