One of the most common dilemmas many Australians face is choosing between the excitement and endless possibilities of city life or the quietude of the suburbs.
A new boutique apartment project in leafy inner suburb Doncaster promises a supreme balance between the two.
Secluded yet connected, The Manning brings the best of urban living to a more affordable, serene and community-focused suburban environment.
Positioned just 3km from the Eastern Freeway, residents can be in the city within 25 minutes or enjoy a straight-forward drive down to the coastal charms of the Mornington Peninsula.
Although it's within easy reach of all of Melbourne's most sought-after locations, the luxury apartments are also perfectly located to enjoy the best Doncaster has to offer.
Overlooking the distant lights of the Melbourne city skyline, residents are promised a modern lifestyle oozing with convenience, with a number of charming restaurants, green open parklands, and shopping indulgences just minutes away from their doorstep.
Said to be the fashion capital of the East, the multifaceted Westfield Shopping Centre is 850 metres down the road, which boasts the best of world-class shopping including big-name department stores, luxury retail, fine dining, and entertainment.
Ruffey Lake Park and Westerfolds Park both offer a grassy oasis and areas of spectacular natural bushland, perfect for exercise or a leisurely afternoon picnic.
Developed by WinEx Group and designed by RotheLowman Architects, these stylish 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments have been carefully crafted to maximize space and versatility, without compromising on design.
Floor to ceiling windows emphasise the feeling of spaciousness, whilst offering a myriad of natural light and unrivaled views, north to Kinglake and East to the Dandenongs.
“There's an abundance of space,” says the director of RotheLowman Architects, Kim Lowman. “Each aspect from within intends to capture the amazing views towards the north and beyond other suburbs.”
Designed with downsizers in mind, The Manning is a collection of 37 luxury apartments, all featuring classic modern interiors, including sleek timber flooring, stone benchtops and striking black tapware.
Each apartment has an outdoor terrace or balcony adorned with layered greenery and ideal for entertaining. Residents will also enjoy the convenience of a secure basement car park and plenty of storage.
The exterior of the four-level complex has been intentionally designed to adhere to the residential suburb of Doncaster and its leafy surrounds.
The refined tones and understated angles of the building will blend into the tree-lined streetscape, whilst still making a statement of distinct presence and timeless architecture.
