Cook like a mas­ter chef

Herald Sun - Property - - DEVELOPMENT - SA­MAN­THA LANDY

A LUX­URY Malvern de­vel­op­ment is cook­ing up some­thing spe­cial for apart­ment hun­ters.

All 321 apart­ments at Van­guard at 803 Dan­de­nong Rd boast kitchens de­signed by mas­ter Mel­bourne chef Shan­non Ben­nett, fea­tur­ing stone bench­tops, sleek 2 pac cab­i­netry and in­te­grated Miele ap­pli­ances.

The kit­ted-out kitchens are just one fea­ture de­vel­oper Ben­sons Prop­erty Group hopes will lure buy­ers to its flag­ship pro­ject for Malvern — set to be the sub­urb’s tallest tower at 18 storeys high.

De­signed by award-win­ning ar­chi­tect Karl Fender to re­sem­ble a “large-scale ur­ban sculp­ture”, the de­vel­op­ment will also con­tain lux­ury com­mu­nal ar­eas in­clud­ing an out­door gar­den with bar­be­cues and a spa and sauna, a VIP din­ing room with a gourmet kitchen also de­signed by Ben­nett and a me­dia room for movie nights.

Ben­sons sales and mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor Jonathan Web­ber said it would also of­fer a 250sq m gym to be the “size equiv­a­lent of a Fit­ness First”.

Mr Web­ber said the de­vel­op­ment was de­signed to re­sem­ble a five-star ho­tel, and would have a concierge and spa­cious lobby. About 120 of the pro­ject’s apart­ments re­main on the mar­ket, with con­struc­tion set to be­gin in April or May.

Mr Web­ber said Van­guard’s res­i­dences had been pop­u­lar with down­siz­ers and first or se­cond-home­buy­ers from Malvern and sur­round­ing sub­urbs.

“We’ve had a lot of cou­ples aged 28 to 35 who grew up in the area and want to stay there, but can’t af­ford to buy a house there,” he said.

The de­vel­op­ment’s onebed­room, one-bath­room apart­ments are priced from $450,000.

Those with two-bed­rooms have ei­ther one or two bath­rooms and cost $580,000plus, while the three-bed­room apart­ments all come with two bath­rooms and are priced from $750,000.

Prices for Van­guard’s two pent­houses range from $1.2 mil­lion to $1.4 mil­lion.

All apart­ments come with one to three car parks. They boast flex­i­ble floor­plans and qual­ity fit­tings, in­clud­ing tim­ber floors.
