The George is one of Melbourne’s most iconic heritage buildings. This stunning apartment features Victorian details, 14 ft ceilings and an enormous living space to capture refreshing sea breezes. Perfect location to enjoy St Kilda’s bars and cafes.
The George has been the heart of St Kilda for more than 130 years. Built in 1857 to welcome seaside guests alighting at St Kilda train terminus, The George has enjoyed a colourful history deserving of its iconic status. Its grand Italianate facade continues to dominate the eclectic playground that is Fitzroy Street.
Unique, spacious and private, the residence is blessed with stunning original ornate Victorian features fitting this one-of-a-kind heritage apartment.
The newly restored apartment also has 14 ft ceilings so there is no shortage of space to capture refreshing breezes off the Bay. The apartment is situated in a private part of the building and has an easterly aspect making it very tranquil - we get all the beautiful daylight, big swaths of blue sky and plenty of peace and quiet while still being at the heart of everything.
This secure, second floor apartment features 1 bedroom, 1 modern marble bathroom, light-filled living space, polished floorboards, a fireplace (not operational now that it's over 130 years old. But so pretty!), modern kitchen, internet, television and DVD player.
This unique heritage apartment is the perfect stylish and rental for travelling singles, couples and executives who have fabulous taste and an eye for exceptional design.
The George is minutes walk from St Kilda beach and surrounded by excellent bars, restaurants, cafes and gift shops.
Please enjoy the apartment and amenities. We'd love to have you as a guest, whether for a short stay or longer visit. If you're interested in a long-term arrangement, please check out weekly and monthly rates
