Come to an inner-city location that everyone dreams about – Abbotsford. Only 2kms from the CBD, The Argyle on Johnston provides the ideal inner-city retreat to come home to.
With architecture and interiors by Fieldwork, these exquisite 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments are visually stunning and combine elegant design with outstanding amenity. The Argyle on Johnston invites you to discover the perfect balance of city buzz and river tranquillity in the one superb location.
The crystalline building form has a striking façade which is threaded with bronze woven wire window shutters and balustrades, like seams of gold through natural quartz — a dynamic operable skin that catches the light and changes from day to night. In a 6 star Green Star-equivalent building with no borrowed light, the Argyle apartments are designed with a strong emphasis on internal amenity, privacy, access to natural sunlight, and communal facilities. Private outdoor terraces follow the building’s diamond form, embracing views from all around.
High quality design and sustainable apartment living have been thoroughly thought out as The Argyle’s interior presents a sophisticated and refined design. From the soft warmth of the concrete-look bathroom tiling to dark metal joinery accents, subtle references are made to Abbotsford’s industrial past. Kitchens feature natural granite stone benches and splashbacks. Engineered timber flooring brings warmth into the open-plan living and dining spaces, while broadloom carpet in bedrooms offers more intimate comfort.
Residents will have the opportunity to take in the spectacular views of the Melbourne CBD from The Argyle’s landscape rooftop terrace. BBQ facilities and large communal tables are perfect assembling friends for a Saturday afternoon barbeque or you can unwind at the end of the day in a private shady nook or comfy bar stool.
Step outside your door and you will find terrific lifestyle amenity in every direction. Go for a run along the beautiful sheltered banks of the Yarra. Cycle or walk the Main Yarra Trail all the way to Flinders Street Station and Docklands. Visit hundreds of great spots, including farmers’ markets at the Abbotsford Convent and Collingwood Children’s Farm.
Close to transport and services, just minutes from bustling urban hubs brimming with restaurants, bars and cafes, fashion and retail outlets, arts, sport and entertainment districts, and yet right next door to an incredible breadth of open parklands and riverland bush.
