Have Your Expectations Exceeded

The Empress, part of the Royal Terrace One, stands unparalleled. Originating as one of Melbourne's iconic stables, this grand bluestone and brick residence has been elegantly transformed into a two-bedroom, two-bathroom space featuring a fully equipped kitchen, laundry, and an additional cosy living space with a queen sofa bed.

The vibrant, full-length courtyard featuring a pergola walkway is a shared amenity with guests from Royal Terrace Two, and it includes secure parking for two vehicles. Facing the World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens, it's hard to find a better location in Melbourne.

The master bedroom, boasting a private ensuite and standalone bathtub, is nestled above the second living space and can be reached via a spiral staircase. The main living and dining area provides a direct view of the Royal Exhibition Building, with walls graced by locally crafted artwork. Maa Interiors, a local design team, curated every element within 'The Empress,' enhancing the guest experience and showcasing an appreciation for detail.


The entire house and courtyard are accessible to all guests. Visitors from the neighbouring Royal Terrace Two: The Kingdom (or Royal Terrace One: The Empress) share common areas of the property such as the entrance, courtyard, and double garage.
