First homeowners don’t expect to be able to afford Ivanhoe. As one of Melbourne’s best-loved blue-chip suburbs, it is generally considered beyond the budget of people looking to take that first step on the property ladder.
However, it is now possible for first homeowners to move into this sought-after suburb with its leafy streets, parks and river walks, and excellent cafes and restaurants. And, they can do it in one of the most stunning locations.
Ivanhoe Apartments, designed by Fender Katsalidis, is situated on one of the highest points in Melbourne allowing expansive views of the city skyline and Dandenong Ranges.
With construction nearly complete, and on top of the government grants and concessions already available for buyers new to the market, Caydon is offering a bonus $20,000 to the deposit of first homeowners looking to buy a one bedroom apartment.
At Ivanhoe Apartments, homeowners will share luxurious facilities and revel in resort-style living in a stunning landmark building. Enjoy an after-work swim in the elevated 18m pool with views to the city and beyond. On weekends, the shared lounge room with its cozy fireplace or the generous dining room are the perfect spaces to entertain friends and family before moving outside for a refreshment in the beautifully landscaped garden.
Investors, meanwhile, can seize the chance to get a foot in the door in an area where apartment prices are growing annually, and rental return is increasing. Vacancy rates are at an impressively low 2.19%, and nearby Austin Hospital, Mercy Hospital for Women and other medical institutions continually attract employees looking to rent in the area. To sweeten the deal, Caydon is offering those interested to invest a full stamp duty rebate on all one bedroom apartments.
Ivanhoe Apartments offer more than just a premium residential address — they are light-filled homes with high-end fixtures and finishes.
The interior designers drew on the heritage of nearby Heide Museum of Modern Art with the use of luxurious materials, earthy colours and natural textures. Leather, timber, stone and bronze finishes work together to pay tribute to the curved and complex building.
European in style and with a level of space and appointment more like a house than an apartment, the kitchens have been specially designed to be a pleasure to use. Porcelain splashbacks, reconstituted stone benchtops and sleek cabinetry all contribute to the refined appeal found throughout every residence.
Bedrooms feature plush wool carpet and black window frames that capture marvellous views on every side of the building while bathrooms showcase elegant fittings and mosaic tiling.
Nearby parks offer opportunities to connect with nature while the fabulous range of specialty stores and boutiques in Ivanhoe will tempt shoppers. Home to a thriving cafe culture and fine dining restaurants like renowned Va Tutto, the main retail and hospitality precinct on Upper Heidelberg Road offers something for everyone.
For those who love the vibrancy of Australia’s most liveable city, Ivanhoe is only 10km from the city via the nearby Heidelberg train station or the Burgundy Street bus route.
