Welcome to Capitol Grand, one of the most expensive slices of real estate in Melbourne.
This is the second tallest building outside the CBD, and at the apex of these 50 storeys is a penthouse with views that don’t come cheap.
The asking price is $20,400,000, and unit 4701 is worth every dollar.
A high tech elevator reaches the top in just 30 seconds, delivering you to the moment you’ve been waiting for – entry to the penthouse suite.
It’s absolutely remarkable in here, glowing with luxury in a way that feels very New York – for a second you might forget where you are.
Uninterrupted views showcase nearly the entire city thanks to phenomenal glass walls, almost three metres in height, wrapping around the whole level.
Spanning 536sqm, these wide-open spaces are ethereal, airy and soft, with the northern half of the apartment dedicated to open plan living. There’s one couch set up after another – a view for every mood.
Speaking of expensive taste, the beautifully crafted kitchen is almost overwhelming.
Marble countertops and splashbacks, under cabinet lighting, and the finest material and finishes make every meal an experience.
Four bedrooms are scattered throughout the apartment, but the master suite is certainly the cream of the crop. Imagine waking up to that view, or enjoying breakfast in bed here on a weekend. But don’t spend too long enjoying the super-soft broadloom carpet, because there’s plenty more to see in the walk-in robe and sexy en suite!
Gold fittings complement dappled marble tiling, and the round bath is a beautiful contrast to the straight lines of what is mostly a very linear bathroom. Imagine staring out over the city at night from that tub – the lights below reflecting the stars above…
Adding to the six-star luxury feel is the range of amazing resident facilities.
Amity property group director Christian Numa says life at Capitol Grand is like living at the best hotel, but you can stay forever!
“You have the simple things like valet car parking, dry cleaning that’s brought to your room, and room service from downstairs, all the five or six-star hotel amenities, but you own it,” Christian says.
“We’ve got three restaurants downstairs that cater for a number of different tastes in terms of European and Asian cuisine,” he says. “But one of the big bonuses is you can eat down there if you choose, or sit in your apartment with a menu and order up with our silver star service.”
“It’s all here waiting for you.”
Other resident amenities include a state-of-the-art gym, 25-metre lap pool, private lounges and board rooms, and access to the elite Azure Club.
Located in South Yarra less than ten minutes from Melbourne’s CBD, Capitol Grand aims to distinguish itself as the jewel in Melbourne’s crown.
