Cook like a master chef
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.
