Steller has carved out a reputation for itself as a premium Victorian developer, and now the company is setting the bar even higher with new project Laila.
The collection of 35 apartments has been meticulously crafted by award-winning architects Ewert Leaf. Featuring open plan living areas, and generous balconies and terraces, these homes are made for owner-occupiers.
“Steller’s approach to development is community-centric and we recognise that buyers are now considering a multitude of factors in their purchase,” says James Cirelli, Steller Project Sales and Marketing Director. “These include aesthetics, interior design location, amenities, and community — and Laila meets all of these.”
The homes have been designed to achieve a contemporary aesthetic, James says. “Each apartment maintains a meticulous attention to detail resulting in a stylishly refined interior design.”
Benefiting from an open plan configuration, natural light streams through the full-height windows and sliding glass doors, highlighting the engineered timber flooring in the living areas. The clean and crisp colour palette allows buyers to seamlessly integrate their own unique style in the spaces.
As an added bonus for first homeowners, the one bedroom apartments are flexible, allowing buyers to choose between incorporating a butler’s pantry, study or baby’s nursery into the layout. James says, “Steller’s customised space option now means that young couples and expectant families can enter the housing market with an affordable product that will grow and adapt to their needs.” This is a first for Steller and, thanks to its popularity, the company has plans to include this feature in future projects.
Laila is also one of the first of its kind in Melbourne’s south-east to achieve 100 per cent alignment with The Better Apartment Design Standards (BADS). As a result, the project showcases a stunning array of high-end inclusions within each home, and expansive living areas and bedrooms.
