This listing is one of those rare chances to not only snag a great little city pad, but actually dwell inside some serious, heritage listed architecture.
With an entrance garden, central courtyard, succulent garden, and side gardens Spring is in full bloom at Roy Grounds garden-cetric design icon.
On the 30th June 2017, 'Moonbria's' longest and revered resident Lesley Wheeler passed away.
She resided at unit 16 on the top floor for over 25 years, and passed away at the ripe old age of 93.
She adored this buildings form and function, and as a Royal Botanical botanist took great pride in planting most of Moonbria's gardens, adhering to the design philosophy Roy Grounds envisaged.
This was the last pot stand she planted out, in the hot summer of 2013/2014.
Thank you Lesley.
Its stands, as you stood. Proudly and honorably in your memory.
Away from the maddening crowds of Moomba, 'Moonbria' residents retreat to the gloriously designed wide balconies, that encourage this unique Moonbria community.
Its quality time and design that matters most.
Chin Chin Mr Grounds!
With over a 120 unique visitors a week, and a range topping 900 pages consumed our 'Moonbria' website is proving to be a terrific and valuable source to the world of Roy Grounds and the Moderne movement in general.
