Maribyrnong 16 Gatehouse Place
Period Stories, Present Spaces
Remarkable from both historical and design perspectives the former Royal Australian Field Artillery Barracks kitchen has been beautifully converted for contemporary creature comforts and a singular take on lifestyle. Rich, rustic timber trusses soar skyward over the spacious central living and dining area, the warmth of which is reflected by polished hardwood below while staircase leads upwards to the gorgeous loft-style study. The kitchen is perfectly presented in a refined white/black palette with granite benchtops and double doors that bring entertaining out to the serenity of a decked courtyard garden. Such an impressive home sets high expectations for the accommodation – which it exceeds with ease, offering two beautifully attired bedrooms and a traditionally tempting bathroom. Additionally, air-conditioning, heating, European laundry and a secure garage and storage cage complement the prestige of the position – poised as it is with Highpoint and the Maribyrnong River at your fingertips and within walking distance of trams.
