Comprising 30 apartments above a string of retail tenancies, FINERY is your opportunity to join Brunswick East’s ranks.
Remnants of Brunswick East’s industrial past can still be found in the concrete and steel warehouses scattered along the main roads and side streets. FINERY’s façade has been inspired by the character of such buildings, with a modern twist.
Elements of concrete, steel and glass are contrasted by the elegant, embossed brass entryways and tactile perforated screens. Elevating this, and reflecting the environmental focus many of the residents of this suburb hold, climbing plants add another layer of detail, softening the building’s form.
The materials found in the external building structure repeat within the interiors, cohesively tying the spaces together. A palette of timber, stone and glass forms a rich tapestry of surfaces that evoke a sense of glamour and luxury.
The highly functional open plan design, combined with high-quality fixtures and fittings, ensures maximised livability throughout every living space. For instance, in the kitchen, integrated Smeg appliances complement the premium marble benchtops and brass finishes, ensuring cooking is enjoyed in a space that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional.
The best of Brunswick East living can be experienced both from within the individual homes as well as on the rooftop terrace where gorgeous landscaping frames the views of Melbourne’s CBD only 6.5km away. This space is ideal for relaxing at the end of a long week, or for entertaining friends and family on warm summer evenings.
Home to trendy cafés and the original 400 Gradi, hole-in-the-wall bars and an urban winery, there is always something happening in Brunswick East and FINERY places you in the centre of the action in a prime position on Lygon Street.
The streetscape comes alive once the workday finishes, when locals catch up with friends at favourite restaurants or bars. Meanwhile, on weekends, you will find a broad range of people out walking their dogs, brunching at one of the many thriving cafés, or riding their bikes to Barkly Square to do their grocery shopping.
Just past Glenlyon Road only a few blocks away, there is an abundance of restaurants to choose from. From wood-fired pizzas at Zia Teresa to American-style fare at B.East and authentic Lebanese soul food at Teta Mona, there is something for everyone.
For even more variety, you can catch a tram further down Lygon Street into Carlton. Watch a movie at Cinema Nova, or visit acclaimed bookshop Readings, where occasionally authors will do book signings.
Brunswick East is a highly walkable neighbourhood, with a Walk Score of 83/100 and FINERY makes the most of this. With an IGA Supermarket and a laundromat just across the road, Fleming Park within a 10-minute walk and popular café East Elevation within a 5-minute walk, you’ll have convenient access to everything you need and more.
