Offering a slice of Brighton’s beachside lifestyle, the boutique apartment project of Batéau has a European air.
This collection of one, two and three bedroom luxury apartments has an architectural confidence in a low-rise building that elegantly steps back from the street level by level. Brick and glass work in harmony to tie this building into the surrounding leafy streets, as does the lush landscaping the frames the building’s entrance.
It’s this thoughtful selection of elements and materials that combine to give Batéau its character inside and out and is sure to appeal to anyone looking for a home that lifts the everyday into something a little more special.
Living spaces are open-plan for maximum flexibility and flooded with light thanks to the large windows, framed in black for a contemporary aesthetic. These open up each home to the spacious outdoor terraces which are some of the most generous we’ve seen. The classic indoor-outdoor lifestyle is all set to be enjoyed here.
The kitchens at Batéau don’t shout. They don’t really need to, fitted out as they are with high-end appliances, mirrored splash back and contemporary black tapware. There’s plenty of storage space behind elegantly sleek cabinetry that gives these kitchens an appealing simplicity. And the island bench, one of our favourite kitchen details, just adds further functionality and a place to gather and share.
Cool and calm, bathrooms here are stylishly simple. The light palette and simple lines help define a clutter-free space, fitted out with an expansive mirrored cabinet, plenty of under vanity storage and more of that black tapware and shower fittings.
One of Melbourne’s oldest suburbs, Brighton has earned its stripes as a premium location to be cherished. Whilst known for its wealthy residents and affluent architecture, there’s still a friendly vibe to the place, with plenty of cafes, bars and eateries to while away the weekend. Popular haunts include Brighton Schoolhouse, Cucina & Co., The Little Ox Café and Mother’s Milk. With popular Bay Street a step or two away from Batéau, this vibrant community could not be more convenient.
Surrounded by a host of parks, Brighton’s big drawcard is, of course, the beachside proximity, and the place is synonymous with relaxed coastal living. But from the ever-buzzing kiosk at Middle Brighton Baths to the resplendent Palace Cinema, there’s much more to Brighton than first meets the eye.
Far enough from Melbourne to be relaxed yet close enough for an easy commute, Brighton offers easy access to the CBD via the Napean Highway, with equally-handy train connections via North Brighton Train Station a block or two away. Families looking to scope out Batéau's larger apartments may already be aware of the quality and choice of leading schools in the area, including Brighton Grammar School, Brighton Primary School and Brighton Secondary College.
Batéau delivers just about everything this buoyant community is known for, all wrapped up in an elegant and effortlessly liveable home. Pricing is as follows:
One bedroom apartments from $469,000
Two bedroom apartments from $549,000
Three Bedroom apartments from $799,000
The display suite at 407 Bay Street Brighton is open Saturday & Sunday from 11am - 1pm.
