St James in Glen Iris has already had a highly successful run in a very competitive market. Local developer Werden Property Group has ensured larger apartments by creating only 22 residences within the project — an attribute that is highly attractive to anyone who appreciates privacy and a sense of open spaces. So far, the interest has come from 100% local buyers, all of whom are owner occupiers.
Only 10km south-east of the CBD, Glen Iris offers a blend of connected living, village charm and well-serviced amenities. With its simple yet elegant form of layered brickwork, timber, glass and embossed metal, St James is nestled amongst Edwardian and Victorian houses. Designed by C. Kairouz Architects, the facade of the residences creates a sense of rhythmic geometry, contributing to the upper end of High Street’s streetscape. Conveniently located near Burke Road, St James grants access to the best amenities Glen Iris has to offer.
This premium suburb is home to a variety of landscaped reserves, riverside trails and recreation centres, many of which are within walking distance of the residences at St James. For a quiet, local retreat, Central Park offers 19 acres of green space only 800m from the front door, while the more expansive green areas at Nettleton Park Reserve are just a short walk away.
Meanwhile, the Harold Holt Swim Centre offers a variety of options to keep locals active throughout the year. Heated swimming pools and saunas, a gym and regular fitness classes – it’s no wonder people love living in Glen Iris.
The variety of food and shopping options is yet another reason this suburb is highly favoured. And, St James residents will have the best access to these coveted amenities. A strip of restaurants, cafes and boutique retail outlets are scattered along Burke Road, only 650m away.
Locals frequent Our Kitchen Table for a late brunch while Kerabu’s tables fill up quickly in the evenings as the aromas of south-east Asian spices fill the air. For even more dining options, St James residents need only catch the tram from outside the door to the retail and hospitality precinct on Glenferrie Road.
After spending a day exploring the artisan shops and the array of entertainment options that gives Glen Iris its village charm, residents can return to their modern residences. The clean and simple design of the home is enhanced by expansive balconies which connect seamlessly to the large light-filled interiors.
Using an elegant colour palette, award-winning Mim Design has created flexible spaces that can be personalised as the owner sees fit. The colours, contrasted by the use of stone and timber materials, have a peaceful effect which is enhanced by the views over leafy Glen Iris through the full-height windows.
Connected by two tram lines which run frequently, the Monash Freeway and with the Glen Iris station nearby, St James offers unparalleled living in a premium Melbourne suburb.
