St Kilda is home to numerous 1920s apartments with ornate features, one of which belongs to John Wares, owner of Melbourne gift and homeware shop Mr Wares, and his friend of 30 years, Peter Papadopoulos.
Since purchasing this property in 2015, John has embarked on a major renovation that respects the building’s distinct 1920 architecture by Christopher Cowper.
Initially a two bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, this property now contains three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The new kitchen is the crowning jewel of the entire space, where lady onyx marble, green cabinetry, and garden views harmoniously come together.
The space now feels akin to a European apartment, with the added benefit of bayside Melbourne views!
