Bentleigh East’s leafy streets, vibrant with local coffee shops and fresh produce, is carefully upping its residential game, with new projects like Onyx leading the way.

With a prime spot on Centre Road this collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments are designed to be an escape from the busy lives we all lead, yet are close to all the amenities, shops and vibe that Bentleigh East is famous for.

From the striking exterior facade, this building from developers Vanguard Projects makes a statement, with its mix of contemporary and traditional materials. With the challenge of fitting into an established street in a much-loved area, experienced PRA Architects have made sure Onyx integrates perfectly.


Heading inside, the quality of these apartments shines. Full-height windows let the natural light illuminate Onyx’s open plan living areas. Find your dream dining table and make the most of these free-flowing, timber floored homes that have clearly been created to make it easy for you to bring people together (and the balcony areas are spacious enough for even more gatherings).

The natural and neutral tones of the interior schemes provide the ideal backdrop for you to add your own style and get creative with furnishings or your favourite art pieces. 


Kitchens have been designed to connect with the living areas so entertaining is definitely on the cards. The large island benches are some of the biggest we’ve seen.

With elegant lines and shapes at play, there’s plenty of storage includes a mix of laminate and timber veneer cabinetry, plus a host of stainless steel appliances built-in.

Standout kitchen design detailing? For us it’s the splash back of bronzed glass which adds a subtle layer of sophistication to these communal spaces that we can tell will be a joy to use and entertain from.

Bathrooms at Onyx continue the combination of natural colours and textures to luxuriously calming effect. Large neutral-toned tiling paired with smaller hexagon tiling helps define the room between the vanity area and the large walk-in shower. There’s a large mirrored cabinet, plus a luxuriously deep basin complete with modern black tapware throughout. And because a tidy bathroom is a tranquil bathroom there’s plenty of storage. This is all given a final style pop thanks to the feature pendant lighting. These are the kind of bathrooms that make the start to your day less of a drag.


Bedrooms have also been designed with your health and well-being in mind, just the way a home should. There’s plenty of natural light to wake up to, and ventilation to ensure a fresh environment to retreat to at the end of the day. 

All the details of everyday living are here, including reverse cycle heating and cooling, European style laundry, secure basement car parking and storage, plus secure entry at street level.


Bentleigh East has always been a spot that’s popular with young families, not least because of its abundance of parks and recreation areas. But when you add the shopping, easy transport to the CBD and a wide selection of nearby schools – Onyx falls within the McKinnon Secondary College zone – you start to understand the true value of living in this established yet constantly changing suburb.
