Character at 'Lorne Street Lofts'
Nestled behind the bustle of Queen Street, discover a world where art, architecture and international cuisine reign supreme - at the intriguing Lorne Street Lofts.Price
Location: 4 Lorne Street, Auckland Central
One studio apartment steeped in history has been immaculately refurbished for sale to maximise space and light - and guarantee a stylish central position for metropolitan students or city-pad seekers.
Backed by a history as colourful as the neighbouring galleries, the Lofts date back to the 1800's where they were transformed for use as the Turkish Baths in 1913 and again, converted to apartments in 1996.
Despite an enchanting character facade and elegant details throughout the stairwell, it is flawlessly contemporary inside unit 1A, where polished timber flooring, white-washed walls and stainless-steel appliances blend together to create an idyllic urban space.
Between high-stud ceilings and floor-to-ceiling drapes this compact home feels so much larger than her 60 square metres (more or less), creating an effortless distinction between the bedroom, lounge, dining area and kitchen rarely found in studio apartments.
Relax, vino in hand admiring the west-facing city-scape; enjoy dinner with friends as there's space to entertain; store beautiful garments in the dual wardrobe and of course, relish the stunning new kitchen complete with four-seater breakfast bar, soft-close cabinetry and geometric splash-back.
Featuring thoughtful studio lighting and floating bedside shelving, the configuration of this bedroom nook is perhaps one of the most liveable layouts available for the busy Auckland professional.
At the entry find the bathroom - a minimalist's dream; complete with rainforest shower-head, triple cabinetry mirror, under floor heating and neutral tiling with timber vanity accents.
Offering an unparalleled lifestyle of sophistication and enjoyment, Lorne Street is perfectly positioned between the sparkling Viaduct Harbour - with its cycling, walking and nightlife, thrilling new Commercial Bay development and academics quarter where Universities, motorway links and galleries are in abundance.
Certainly, a high-powered rental asset worthy of investor's attention, this desirable lock-up-and-leave abode is equally suitable for the part-time resident, local university student or first-home buyer looking for a quality foothold on Auckland's property ladder.
