One of a kind Art Deco apartment listed in Newtown Burnham Apartments
There’s every reason to embrace the curve in a one-of-a-kind city apartment that celebrates the original Art Deco elements in all their glory.
Art Deco is celebrated in a fabulous and colorful way in a one-of-a-kind apartment for sale in Geelong’s iconic Burnham Flats.
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom residence spans the eye-catching top floor of the building, best known for its teal and black colors and signature curved balcony.
Whitford, Newtown agent Heidi Trempel said the spacious apartment at 3-4 / 2a Skene St, Newtown was an outstanding example of Art Deco architecture.

Beautifully preserved period features include light fixtures, etched glass, original wood and tiled cabinetry, faucets, and tubs.
“It would definitely appeal to someone who enjoys the Art Deco vibe,” Ms. Trempel said.
“They kept it so that the whole place had Art Deco features, there are those curved cabinets and in the bathrooms you still have the original tiles.”
“It is beautifully preserved.”
Even the modernized kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, has been fitted with striking black and teal cabinets that reflect the building’s exterior architecture.
Burnham Flats was built in 1935 as four separate units, but the two first floor apartments have since been combined to create a spacious home.
An Art Deco fireplace is the focal point of the living room, while the original built-in display cases are found in the separate dining room where double doors lead to a balcony with city and bay views.
Ms Trempel said the downtown location was a plus for shoppers who wanted to be able to walk to the CBD, Geelong waterfront, Pakington St and Geelong station.
Exclusive access to a north facing garden which is part of the title is a rare find in the town and the property also has a single garage, a second parking lot in the back lane and a separate workshop.
Ms Trempel said the large master bedroom, with its own fireplace, sitting area and bathroom, at the front of the house was also accessible via the balcony.
“You can run a business from there because it has a separate entrance,” she said.
The apartment will be auctioned on November 13 with price hopes of $ 875,000 to $ 940,000.
