The luxuriously appointed apartments all boast en-suite bathrooms with heated flooring and towel rails. The showers are a feature on their own, not to mention the baths - tranquility at its best! The kitchens have everything a person would need - a fully-stocked mini-bar, espresso machine and quality teas to mention just a few. For the culinarily gifted, the fully fitted kitchens can be used to cook up a masterpiece.  There is no need to do your own shopping - the friendly concierge will lend a helping hand by sourcing all the ingredients for you.

If a no fuss evening is preferred, then order in from one of the restaurants in the precinct, kick off your shoes and relax in front of your 42-inch plasma screen television with a wide selection of DSTV channels from which to choose.

Apartment #1: Three-bedroom Penthouse
The Penthouse is 310m2 of absolute luxury living. The suite includes two en-suite bedrooms on the lower level and an additional en-suite bedroom upstairs.  The unit also has a mezzanine level with an office area and a sleeper couch for whenever extra visitors are expected.

The kitchen boasts a central island with gas fired stove and ample space to entertain.

With unrivalled views of the Johannesburg skyline, the outside entertainment area is the perfect spot for a lazy summer afternoon next to the lap pool or the ideal venue for hosting a cocktail party for up to 80 people.

The dining room seats 8 people and can be used as an alternative venue for small business meetings or to entertain a small party of guests.

Ideal for a family of 6 or for the business person who enjoys his space, this is the pinnacle of luxury in Melrose Arch.

Apartments #2 and #3: One-bedroom Studios
This one-bedroom apartment with its hints of green and light brown offers a mezzanine level with office area and sleeper couch.

The lounge area is equipped with DSTV satellite television, DVD player and 42-inch flat screen plasma TV.  There is also a guest WC upon entering the apartment.

The undercover balcony offers perfect protection against the elements when making use of the gas fired barbeque to grill some fresh South African meat or fish and still has enough space to entertain guests.

The en-suite bathroom offers a luxurious free-standing bath with floor to ceiling mirrors and a breathtaking rain shower with exclusive Hansgrohe fittings.

Apartment #4: Two-bedroom Suite
Apartment #4 is located at the north-eastern corner of the building with stunning views of Melrose Boulevard. The two bedrooms are both en-suite, but the main bedroom features what is internationally becoming a new trend of "in-suite" bathroom.

The spacious balcony is the ideal relaxation spot for a lazy afternoon and on a hot summer's day, the folding glass doors can be opened up to allow fresh summer air to fill the apartment.

Apartment #5: Two-bedroom Suite
This apartment boasts two en-suite bedrooms on either side of the living room and kitchen area.

There are four sliding doors opening up to the large outside balcony, one from each of the bedrooms and two from the main living area.

The four-poster bed in the main bedroom is a feature on its own and epitomizes the style and feel of the suites at #1 Melrose.

Apartment #6: Two-bedroom Suite
High ceilings and a feeling of wide open space is a classic feature of this apartment.

The glass sliding doors open up to create a massive space, joining the living room and the outside balcony, creating a large, free-flowing area and a truly impressive feature.
