Prospective buyers at Melfort, four luxury townhouses and the exquisitely redeveloped original residence, can enjoy opulent, sophisticated and contemporary living backed by a comprehensive quality guarantee.
Wonderfully restored and presented by Conrad Architects, both developments are designed and built with non-combustible materials that have been fully certified in accordance with the MFB regulations.
Not only this but as well as a six-year building guarantee, the defects period is extended to 50 weeks post completion of the building contract — confirming Melfort’s commitment to be a statement in Hawthorn for years to come.
The redevelopment of the original residence is not only structurally strong but absolutely stunning. The history of the home itself provided challenges to the architectural team, but the solution to employ cleverly considered elements that complemented and championed its existing being, instead of a total revamp, proved a masterstroke.
A gorgeous Georgian-style exterior of seamless symmetry welcomes residents, while grand doors open up to a wonderfully maintained home. Contemporary touches have transported the interior into the modern day, with the use of generously proportioned windows providing a key aspect to this transportation.
This allows for an abundance of light to fill these spaces, revealing beautiful European oak floorboards and a spacious living and kitchen area. Here, New Age Veneers bring their decades worth of experience to deliver the highest quality custom joinery. Benchtops of Carrara marble are seen at the front, while a cleverly concealed back area houses a pantry and storage space — enabling an easily maintained front kitchen area.
The appliances in this luxurious cooking arena come with a generous warranty and guarantee package of up to five years, giving owners the peace of mind that their cuisine experiences are made easier for years to come.
Up a charming staircase, featuring carefully crafted curved tread detail, are the indulgent bedrooms and bathrooms — impeccably designed havens of luxurious retreat.
The master bathroom is a space of pure opulence. A double vanity and a freestanding bath, expertly introduced by Roger Seller, sits above stunning Signorino tiles. Glorious Broadware tapware accentuates these havens that provide so much more than their primary function.
Enhancing Melfort’s reincarnation are the four innovative and modern townhouses. The essence of the original residence is found within these graceful, light-filled interiors. Meanwhile, a neutral palette allows residents to decorate their homes to their own preferences and visions.
The living room is the main focal point. Here, floor-to-ceiling windows provide natural light during the day, while a lavish custom fireplace, purpose-built for the home, is on hand for cooler, darker evenings.
These communal spaces seamlessly lead onto botanical terrace areas, designed by the much sought-after Jack Merlo and his talented team of landscape designers. Idyllic locations to entertain guests or enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day, the outdoor settings are perfectly curated as leafy retreats from modern life.
Like in Melfort’s original residence, Carrara marble is found in abundance in the spacious kitchens, which also feature a splashblack made of the same stone. Take dinner upstairs to the terrace area, where residents can dine surrounded by spectacular views of the neighbourhood and beyond.
Upon the doorstep of Melfort lies Kooyong Village, as well as the copious shopping and dining options on Glenferrie Road. No matter what time of day, whatever the fashion taste, or food craving, Hawthorne provides all of life’s amenities and more.
This green inner-city suburb has an array of parklife. From the ovals of Sir Zelman Cowen Park and the lawns of MCC Bowls to the historic St James and Grace parks, Hawthorne offers the ideal settings to go for a run, a bike ride, or simply wander tree-topped canopies.
Meanwhile, the nearby Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club is on hand for more than just a spot of tennis. It, of course, provides a variety of impeccable grounds and courts, but also a clubhouse that features a fully-equipped gymnasium, lap pool, and spa.
For some post-match rejuvenation, Hawthorn is full of quality restaurants, cafés, and bars. Grab a baguette and brioche from Gontran Cherrier in the morning before enjoying lunch or dinner at a host of Italian culinary destinations such as Osteria 20, Vaporetto, and Rococo.
This family-orientated locale boasts some of Melbourne’s finest private and public schools, including Melbourne Ladies and Scotch College. The train station and abundance of tram stops make this a truely connected locale, with trips to Flinders Street and the CBD taking just 15 minutes.
