Original designer apartments at MoPo deliver modern living in the heart of Moonee Ponds, one of Melbourne’s most established northern suburbs.
Developed by Accord Property Group, MoPo represents a landmark residential project for Moonee Ponds, offering 126 apartments across 11 levels in a variety of one, two and three bedroom layouts.
Designed by Peddle Thorp Architects, the building is afforded a facade composed of an elegant balance of glass, metal and concrete, whose mirage responds to the surrounding environment beautifully. The architects focused on taking advantage of MoPo’s elevated position by maximising light entry to the apartments, allowing interiors to become encompassed by breathtaking panoramas of the CBD and surrounding parklands.
With interiors imagined by celebrity designer Darren Palmer and brought to life by the workmanship of esteemed builders Buildcorp Commercial, the sense of luxury and natural comfort inside MoPo apartments is second to none. The nuances of the design take form through fabric weaves and oak timbers that provide a natural warmth to the environment and subtle enhancements such as bronze treatments, warm metals and mirrored surfaces.
Expansive glazing and an open-plan layout widen the living spaces and add to the sense of relaxed elegance. To increase the generous living space’s square footage, simply open balcony doors and create a seamless indoor-outdoor experience.
MoPo’s kitchen takes inspiration from the open, galley-style kitchens of Melbourne’s top-end, exotic restaurants. Fitted with integrated European appliances and shelves laminated with Parisian oak, the kitchen’s functionality and spectacle is heightened by transcontinental influence. Echoing the living space’s elegant yet natural design, the kitchen is complete with a bronzed mirror splashback and aged bronze tapware that juxtapose flush, white cabinetry capped by slender stone benchtops.
The bedroom is defines modern liveability, fitted with full-height, built-in wardrobes or walk-in robes and handcrafted textures of modern loop pile carpets. Master bedrooms have ensuites as well as a study alcove that overlooks the balcony.
High-end finishes continue in bathrooms, where the carefully-considered design is optimised for an effortless experience. Russet, Italian-inspired floor tiles mimicking pressed earth to give an imperfect texture underfoot are starkly contrasted with creamy wall tiles that resemble artistic brush strokes.
Outside the creative comforts of your abode, you’ll discover ground-level retail and cafés, adding to the convenience of life at MoPo, and an expansive rooftop terrace for entertaining or enjoying solo. The ‘sky lounge’ is coloured by an incredible backdrop of Melbourne’s skyline and spot-lit greenery that punctuates and enlivens the space. With dining zones, bar seating and intimate pockets of cocktail lounge seating, the rooftop is yours to use as you desire.
Nestled in the peaceful yet vibrant neighbourhood of Moonee Ponds, MoPo apartments are set to follow current market trends and only increase in value. In the past five years, local apartments have seen a 21.92% growth, translating to a favourable investment opportunity.
Living in Moonee Ponds means being enviably close to the charming boutique shopping scene of Puckle Street and the suburb’s eclectic collection of local cuisine. Stroll through tree-lined streets and head to Yokoso Japanese for lunch or make your way to Puckle Street Bar for some wine tasting.
Nature-lovers will never tire of being within walking distance from the heritage lake gardens of Queens Park, a beautiful spot for a picnic, a jog, or a spot of photography if fountains are your muse.
The affluent and established precinct is also home to some of Melbourne’s most renowned private schools including Penleigh and Essendon Grammar.
