Tottie Goldsmith has listed the St Kilda apartment she renovated.
ACTOR and singer Tottie Goldsmith is parting with the character-filled 1920s St Kilda apartment she transformed and made her home.
The Chantoozies member and screen regular told Property Confidential it was hard to say goodbye to the two-bedroom pad she hadn’t planned to sell at 11/20 Princes St.
“I’ve renovated it and am absolutely attached, but I can’t have everything,” she said.
“It’s on the first floor and from the bedroom you look out on to trees, so it felt like I was living in a treehouse — it’s got a really peaceful, Zen feeling.
“And it’s right in the heart of everything. I spent years single there and I never felt lonely. There was always something going on and it’s a beautiful end of Fitzroy St.”

Outside the Art Deco apartments.
A light palette with earthy tones has been used throughout the home.
The kitchen and dining area was opened up and a steel beam installed.
The bright and stylish unit will be sent under the hammer at 2pm today (October 27) with price hopes of $600,000-$650,000.
CoreLogic records show it last sold for $537,500 in July 2013.
The former Prisoner, Sex/Life and The Young Doctors star opened up the 1924 apartment’s floorplan, adding a statement steel beam overhead in the kitchen area and using the second bedroom as a dining room, while transforming its interior from dark to light with earthy tones.
“Lighting and feel are really important to me, and when people have walked in to inspections they’ve said ‘it’s got such a good feel, you walk in here and it’s so relaxing’, which is the same as what my friends would say,” she said.
Now living with her partner elsewhere in Port Phillip, the media stalwart hadn’t planned on selling, but recently bought a place in Falls Creek, where her daughter works during winter.
A modern kitchen makes the most of space.
Goldsmith said it was like “living in a treehouse”.
The events MC, who has also released relaxation CDs and appeared on Australian favourites including Neighbours, said it was those around her she’d miss most.
“I love my neighbours, and it’s a 1924 apartment. With all the work I’ve done to it, it’s got so much character and you can never replace that.”
Jellis Craig Stonnington agent Talia Tomaino said interest had come from young professional couples, artists and musicians, as well as a few investors.
