Unique Historical Property

How marvellous to send out invitations to a dinner party to be held in “The Public Bar”. You can if your home is part of a fabulous Federation Hotel! And only if you live in Apartment 2, a completely unique, splendidly converted property that can never be duplicated.

For those who consider the word ‘ordinary’ an insult, and love towering ceilings and huge expanses of space with a touch of history – here is a part of the past that is absolutely sensational in the present.

The Oceanic Hotel was extremely popular and quite grand in its’ heyday. Now this impressive structure has become six individual apartments – all quite independent and different. Only Apartment 2 and one other have a second storey with lovely wide verandahs.

A privacy wall and remotely controlled gates conceal an enchanting courtyard garden that is shaded by ornamental pear and bay trees with wisteria, climbing plants, native violets, random paving, a small fountain and a Roman bath. An enticing setting indeed to spend time with friends around a massive table topped with a slab of exotic stone believed to have come from the River Ganges.

Of the actual public bar there is no trace, but an adjoining gents’ WC has been magically reborn into a stunning powder room – while still retaining lots of the original style.

The grandly proportioned ground floor has a tiled entry statement and some very imposing pillars. The space has been configured into a dining area, drawing room and lounge/music room. In the corner of the lounge, a pair of exquisite hand-made art-deco doors conceal the original cloak room that now stars as a cocktail bar. A third matching door leads to the powder room. A special feature is that one huge wall is completely covered with beautifully crafted timber bookshelves

The picture-perfect kitchen is meticulously designed and hand-built in the Federation style while providing an efficient granite work space and an abundance of storage amongst integrated European White goods.

A gleaming jarrah staircase leads through a 30 metre void to the first floor. A long corridor, part of the original hotel, has a full length trompe l’oeil garden mural that adds a delightful alfresco dimension to this level. Off the corridor are two large bedrooms, both light and airy with high ceilings, fireplaces and built-in wardrobes, and a very stylish bathroom complex. A vestibule leads onto an enormous verandah that is suitable for breakfast or a supper party while looking across the courtyard to the tops of trees that provide shade and privacy.

Words cannot describe what a beautiful home this is for living and entertaining. There is so much atmosphere and space to spill out onto the verandah and into a courtyard that will turn into fairyland after dark.

This unique, bravura residence has everything required to provide a fabulous lifestyle for a new owner who, most certainly, will never be ordinary.
