A quiet, leafy suburb in Melbourne’s north-east, Greensborough is home to sprawling parklands and scenic walking tracks. You’d be forgiven for thinking it was worlds away from bustling city life. Located a convenient 17 km from the CBD, Greensborough offers the best of both worlds for homebuyers wanting to connect with nature without sacrificing their metropolitan lifestyle – and that’s where Albero comes in.
A contemporary apartment project delivered by Citinova, Albero was designed with everyday living in mind. The project’s modest price point, prime location and access to nearby amenities mean there really is something for everyone in this leafy locale.
With one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments still available, Albero is attracting downsizers, young families, and first homebuyers looking to get a foot in the door.
The project comprises 45 residences and sits perfectly within the neighbouring landscape, making the most of Greensborough’s lush surroundings. Using the Australian landscape as inspiration, Albero’s modern interior colour schemes give a nod to the nearby parklands and native flora and fauna.
Jarrod Farey, founding director of boutique real estate company Farey & Co, said the practical floorplans, the carefully-considered interior tones and textures plus the project’s communal terrace and BBQ facilities are proving to be a no-brainer for purchasers.
“Homebuyers are loving Albero because the apartments themselves are their own private sanctuary, while the communal spaces appeal to residents who enjoy entertaining and socialising,” he said.
Albero’s location offers even more social destinations, with tonnes of dining and entertainment options only a stone’s throw from your front door. Enjoy the convenience of nearby Greensborough Plaza, Hoyts cinema, and a bustling Main Street, or grab a bite to eat at one of the countless local cafes and eateries including Mabel Jones, Urban Grooves, and Station Café 134. If you don’t mind travelling a bit further, Greensborough Road and the Metropolitan Ring Road are only minutes away.
For those who want to leave the car at home, the newly redeveloped Greensborough train station is a short distance from Albero, providing greater connectivity to Melbourne’s CBD and surrounding suburbs.
If abundant amenities aren’t enough to convince you of Albero’s appeal, its access to nearby parks and recreation facilities might be. Soak up as much fresh air as you can at local greenspaces like Poulter Reserve, Kalparrin Gardens, Greensborough War Memorial Park and the Plenty River Trail. There are also options for fitness fanatics with Greensborough Tennis Club, Diamond Valley United Soccer Club and Anytime Fitness nearby.
If you have little ones, Albero has you covered with easy access to education and medical facilities including Greensborough Medical Centre, Melbourne Pathology and Greensborough Physiotherapy Clinic. Greensborough Preschool, Greensborough Primary, Montmorency Secondary College and Greensborough College are also a short distance from your front door.
Albero’s sculpted façade rests against the natural backdrop of the building’s surroundings. The design works in perfect harmony with the neighbouring landscape, with soft timber and natural finishes tying the two together. Greenery is also a feature of the building’s exterior with cascading foliage livening up Albero’s generously-sized balconies.
Perfect for entertaining, the indoor-outdoor living options at Albero include private balconies – a natural extension of the home - and dedicated communal spaces on the top two floors. Complementing the outdoor spaces, the building’s interiors are spacious and light-filled.
Finer details of each apartment are what elevate the space, with contemporary design choices throughout including sleek porcelain benchtops and custom timber joinery. Subtle olive green and terracotta accents bring a sense of nature into every space at Albero, weaving the surrounding landscape effortlessly into this thoughtfully designed project.
