Located on the doorstep of High Street, on the cusp of Glen Iris and Malvern, The Beckworth delivers an exceptionally balanced lifestyle for all kinds of homeowners — families in particular.

Comprised of just 18 premium residences designed by Telha Clarke and Studio Tate, the project showcases an individuality of craftsmanship and contemporary design. The textural combination of profiled cladding and render to the façade responds to the surrounding leafy residential environment.


Each home has an expansive balcony and garden terrace. These places are perfect for dining al fresco or spending warm evenings relaxing outside amongst the abundant planting and stunning landscape design by John Patrick Landscaping.

Preparing feasts and packing school lunches is easy in the designer kitchen. Equipped with Miele appliances and featuring high-quality inclusions such as warm-toned integrated joinery and satin nickel handles on the cupboards, the space is both practical and aesthetically pleasing.


There's no need to fight over the bathroom with the addition of an impeccably designed ensuite. These spaces are luxurious sanctuaries, with floating timber vanities and brushed platinum fixtures. Here, residents can achieve privacy in style.


The home doesn’t end at the front door. With intimate lighting, timber finishes and stone benchtops, the downstairs communal wine cellar is perfect for entertaining friends. Residents can store their personal wine collections in one of the eighteen lockable cabinets — so when the mood strikes, friends and family can gather for a wine tasting. This sense of convenience is enhanced by the fact that each residence comes with two conventional car spaces.


Beyond The Beckworth, Glen Iris and Malvern are home to a vast array of modern amenities and services which enhance the family lifestyle. There are many parks and playgrounds within easy walking distance, and the Harold Holt Swim Centre is nearby. This popular leisure venue features a gym in addition to the swimming pools, so parents can enjoy a workout while the kids learn to swim.


Locals can be found grabbing takeaway coffees from one of the trendy cafés scattered throughout these suburbs. Saint James Café and Boy & Co, both just minutes away on Glenferrie Road, serve up a delicious brunch menu and creamy coffee.

On a busy night, residents can go for a short walk to find restaurants showcasing cuisines from all over the world. Singh’s Bala Da Bhaba serves traditional Indian food, while Sozai plates up delicious sushi. Alternatively, Dominos is nearby — perfect for an easy fix at the end of a long day.

Best of all, The Beckworth places families in the catchment zone of some of the most prestigious schools in Melbourne. Korowa Anglican Girls’ School, Sacre Coeur, De La Salle College and Lauriston Girls’ School — all are either within walking distance or only a short drive away.
