Distinctive Dual Level Residence in the Menkens' Apartments with Resort Facilities

Setting a high standard in style, space and historic character, this distinctive dual level apartment gives you a chance to own a slice of Newcastle's history and become part of this beautifully converted c.1899 heritage building. Originally designed by renowned architect Frederick Menkens for firm R Hall and Sons, 161 Scott Street was later occupied by Rundles Tailoring until it was converted into apartments in 1998. This four-bedroom, two-bathroom residence's position on the third-floor gifts it a unique aspect with only one neighbour below. Skylights bring in beautiful natural light, and a large internal courtyard is a brilliant space for entertaining and relaxation. Many retained original fixtures along with resort facilities including a residents' heated lap pool, sauna, and gym give this home character and style, while the complex itself has a real sense of community that's hard to beat. You don't have far to go for your morning coffee with The Signalbox across the road and Neighbours around the corner. Jump on the tram at the front door to the transport interchange or grab your towel and head to the beach. This fabulous location has it all.
