Toorak Park takes pride of place in the highly sought-after premium suburb in Melbourne’s south-east.
Armadale is one of the few inner-city suburbs where people can live in the heart of the action while enjoying a relaxed suburban lifestyle. And Toorak Park presents an opportunity for homeowners who wish to live here, in a luxurious and modern maintenance-free home.
Lendlease has assembled a remarkable team to create this new community. Designed by international architects Denton Corker Marshall and multi-award-winning interior designers Koichi Takada and Carr Group, these homes are truly impressive.
Landscaped by Tract, a recognised leader in urban architecture and design, the project exists in a tranquil setting with popular public parks next door. Different from some other older-style apartment buildings in the area, which usually have limited amenities and sometimes lack balconies or outdoor spaces, the development team has dedicated over one-third of the project’s site to open space. With pocket gardens and BBQ facilities, the grounds have been designed to be enjoyed and are conveniently pet-friendly.
When residents Grace and Leo Mercado first visited Toorak Park, they were immediately impressed with the location and amenities of their 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment.
“We were looking for a place that was ready to move into, and Toorak Park was the best quality we’d seen in terms of each apartment’s finishes and fixtures. There was a lot of effort and thought that had been put into every small detail of the apartment’s design and floorplan,” said Leo.
“We are a young couple — we like being near events and close to the city. We also really liked that Armadale is a well-established suburb. It’s got a lot of shops that we go to, and it’s a peaceful and quiet community as well.”’
Inside, each residence displays natural elements that seamlessly connect with the abundance of greenery that surrounds it. Large floor-to-ceiling windows fill living areas with natural light, highlighting the warm timber flooring and reconstituted stone kitchen benchtops — providing a tranquil and elegant ambience.
Toorak Park has been designed to blur the line between houses and apartments. The 2 and 3 bedroom apartment offerings and collection of townhouses embody elegant and luxurious open plan living, with expansive balconies and walk-through robes that connect generously sized, light-filled bedrooms to ensuites.
Toorak Park presents more than just visually striking homes. Owners enjoy exclusive access to a resident-only gym, luxurious 25m pool, and spa – perfect for a personalised workout with a chance to relax and unwind afterwards. Additional amenities include a barbecue deck, residents’ lounge, library and extensively landscaped grounds which provide many places to relax, entertain and socialise with friends and family.
An abundance of modern lifestyle amenities is within convenient reach of Toorak Park’s doorstep, offering a vibrant, cosmopolitan dining culture where Melbourne’s passion for a well-brewed cup of coffee thrives. A short stroll away on Beatty Street, The Beatt cafe dishes up healthy breakfast options, while a little further along, Eat Mammoth is the perfect place to spend a lazy Sunday morning.
Renowned as a food, art and fashion hub, Armadale has a wide range of entertainment and shopping opportunities. A balanced mix of small boutique outlets and established high-end designer labels can be found at nearby Hawksburn Village and within the retail and dining precinct on High Street.
Only 7km from the CBD, Toorak Park is conveniently located on Orrong Road next to Toorak Railway Station, where trains travel to the city within 10 minutes. Toorak Park has excellent links to all forms of public transport, including trams and bus networks, and access to Monash Freeway. Trams frequently run from nearby Malvern Road and High Street, and there are many points of connection with cycling trails.
With access to Melbourne’s prestigious eastern corridor school zone, Toorak Park homeowners can enrol in nearby Loretto Mandeville Hall, Armadale Primary, Toorak Primary, St Kevin’s College, Lauriston Girls’ School, St Catherine’s School or Geelong Grammar School — Toorak Campus.
Residents vary from young professionals to downsizers and investors, both local or interstate, who are looking for a long-term investment in a blue-chip location.
Whether you’re an investor or looking for somewhere to live, the benefits of purchasing a home at Toorak Park are apparent. As outlined in an Armadale Urbis report, the area has seen strong demand for rental properties with a low vacancy rate of 1.7 per cent (as of June 2018). On top of this, apartments in Armadale remain relatively affordable, which is great news for any Sydney investors.
