Armadale is one of the few Melbourne suburbs that once you’re in, you’ll never want to leave.
The leafy, blue-chip suburb is just seven kilometres from the CBD, and close to hotspots such as Chapel Street, Hawksburn Shopping Village and the Malvern Central Shopping Centre.
But Armadale is much more than what surrounds it.
Take a stroll through its leafy streets lined with sprawling mansions, premium apartment developments and expansive parklands, and you’ll notice a village-like atmosphere in the air.
It’s this sense of community that buyers are searching for, and the reason generations from the same family have chosen to remain within its confines.
For those searching for something more low-maintenance, but want to stay loyal to Armadale, a new boutique development ticks all of the right boxes.
“Acacia” has just 18 apartments in the complex, a mix of one, two and three bedroom dwellings, spread across four levels.
“We’re getting a lot of interest from downsizers who have never lived outside of Armadale, they’ve grown up in the area and they want to remain there,” explains Steller’s Sales Director, James Cirelli.
“They like that the Malvern Central Shopping Centre is within walking distance, a tram line is on the doorstep, and there is accessibility to a number of shops, as well as the train station. Acacia is located in the right pocket of Wattletree Road.”
Acacia is no ordinary development; the firm behind the project, Steller, will incorporate a raft of sustainable, environmentally-conscious initiatives to help reduce the project’s carbon footprint.
It’s the same commitment the developer has made for all of its projects going forward, with each development adhering to an additional star rating on top of the industry standard.
Residents can expect solar-panels on the roof, energy-saving downlights, recycled toilet water courtesy of water tanks, natural ventilation, a design that allows daylight to evenly spread throughout each apartment, and acoustic and thermal barriers for sound reduction and insulation.
These are just a few of the initiatives to be implemented, which will prove handy on the hip-pocket too; residents will notice a 25 per cent reduction in energy costs as a result of the measures.
The apartments themselves are luxurious, a comfortable and stylish place to call home.
There are timber floorboards in the combined kitchen, dining and living area, which opens up to an expansive terrace or balcony.
Marble splashbacks and stone benchtops are an elegant touch, as are plush carpets in the bedrooms.
Buyers will breathe a sigh of relief knowing there are no car-stackers, rather each apartment comes with basement car parking.
However with many of the essentials within walking distance or a short drive away, including Monash University, Caulfield Racecourse, Armadale Primary School and Caulfield Park, it’s likely the car will stay put for most of the time.
