Take a les­son in lux­ury

Herald Sun - Property - - DEVELOPMENT - SA­MAN­THA LANDY

THE fi­nal school bell has well and truly sounded at the for­mer St Joseph’s Tech­ni­cal School, which is set to be­gin a new life as a bou­tique apart­ment de­vel­op­ment.

Just six lux­ury homes will be de­vel­oped be­hind the dis­tinc­tive Gothic Re­vival fa­cade, which dates back to 1893, of 73 Ni­chol­son St in Ab­bots­ford. Each will be spread across two floors, fea­ture two or three bed­rooms and boast spa­cious floor­plans rang­ing from 110 to 190sq m.

Sell­ing agent Char­lie Atkins of Hock­ing Stu­art said the gen­er­ous size of each apart­ment, their limited num­ber and qual­ity fit­tings, in­clud­ing Miele ap­pli­ances, would be among the main sell­ing points lur­ing buy­ers to the St Joseph 6 de­vel­op­ment.

The prop­erty be­gan its life as the Chris­tian Broth­ers School in 1893. It was later re­named St Joseph’s Tech­ni­cal School be­fore be­com­ing home to the Sophia Mundi Ru­dolf Steiner School from 1990 to late 2012.

Mr Atkins said in­ter­est in the project had come largely from ma­ture down­siz­ers look­ing for “lock-up-and-leave lux­ury”, and young pro­fes­sion­als seek­ing bou­tique liv­ing.

The de­vel­op­ment’s twobed­room, one-bath­room and one-car park apart­ments are $1.075 mil­lion. Those with an ex­tra study and bath­room cost $1.32 mil­lion. The three­bed­room apart­ments with two bath­rooms, a pow­der room, study and two car parks are priced at $1.69 mil­lion.

All apart­ments fea­ture open-plan liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas which flow out to a court­yard or ter­race, and gourmet kitchens.

RSG Projects and Plan­ning Stu­dio on Peel are de­vel­op­ing the project, de­signed by In­ter­landi Mantesso Ar­chi­tects.

Con­struc­tion is set to be com­pleted by mid-2017.
