Another piece of design work by Melbourne's most celebrated mid-century architect, Robin Boyd, goes to weekend auction.

Overlooking the Royal Botanic Gardens, apartment 10.2 is a three bedroom, two bathroom apartment in the Domain Park block, coming with $2 million plus hopes.

Last month a three bedroom, one bathroom at 6.1 fetched $1.75 million through Marshall White. It was a well-preserved time-capsule with the original fixtures remaining. It passed-in to a mature couple at $1.525 million and later sold to them for $1.75 million.

Melbourne buyers advocate Richard Wakelin, who attended the auction for clients, noted the Domain Road apartment block, "took high-rise living much higher than the usual three-storeys in 1962."

Kay & Burton is marketing the August 8 Robin Boyd-designed apartment auction offering, located in what was Melbourne's tallest residential tower on its 1962 completion.

The 20-level tower is divided into two wings, with separate lifts.

"The 10.2 interior reflects the forward-thinking modernist vision of Robin Boyd and invites a straight-forward opportunity for renovation to create a truly spectacular living environment," agent Mark Mckenzie suggests.

Last October $1,515,000 was paid for the 4.3/193 Domain Road offering.

It was a two bedroom, one bathroom apartment in the Domain Park block.
