Ivanhoe has long been a tightly-held blue-chip suburb thanks to its sprawling parklands, village-like charm, and proximity to the CBD. The long list of enviable features usually come with a price tag to match, so first homeowners haven’t had many opportunities to obtain property in this area, until now. At Ivanhoe Apartments local developer Caydon has introduced a number of high-spec one and two bedroom apartments that offer value for money and give first-time buyers have the chance to get a foot in the door in a suburb filled with lifestyle experiences.
There are a number of reasons why the one and two bedroom offerings at Ivanhoe Apartments are the perfect new residential address – let’s take a look at some of them.
Good food and wine
In the mornings, you can grab a quick coffee and bite to eat from the onsite café to keep you fuelled on your way to work. And, at the end of the day, you can take a night off from cooking by exploring the various cuisines on offer within your new suburb.
Located at the beginning of Burgundy Street, residents need only go for a short walk to find a variety of cuisines on offer. In the mood for antipasto and pizza? Head to popular haunt, Little Black Pig and Sons, or try the Larb Gai at Tarin Thai. If you don’t want to leave home, get delivery from Heritage Indian Restaurant and let your home fill with the mouth-watering fragrances of Indian curries.
If you do choose to cook at home, you will find that Leo’s Fine Food and Wine has a wide range of gourmet produce. They offer things like avocado cooking oil and prized cuts of meat, fresh seafood and other delectables rarely found in your average supermarket.
The nearby Ivanhoe village is home to an abundance of fashion boutiques interspersed with trendy cafés. Your favourite supermarkets like Aldi, Woolworths and Coles, are all within a five-minute drive.
Northland Shopping Centre is less than a 10-minute drive away, or easily accessible via the 903 bus right outside your door, you can travel to Northland to browse the many retail options. From department stores to boutiques shops, you won’t be lacking for choice here. And, on top of this, you will be able to find salons, beauty stores, chemists and holistic practitioners within the centre. Or, for entertainment, head to the Hoyts cinema and arcade.
Parks and reserves
Cancel your gym membership because the opportunities for exercising locally are vast. Grab your yoga mat and greet the morning on the lush lawns of Remembrance Park. Further afield, Heidelberg Park has access points to the Yarra Trail where you can jog or cycle along the picturesque Yarra River.
While there is an abundance of well-serviced amenities surrounding Ivanhoe Apartments, most of the time you won’t even need to leave your building if you don’t want to. There is a hotel style pool, a state-of-the-art gym, and dining room, as well as a beautifully landscaped garden that acts as an extension of your outdoor space.
To help you make the move, Caydon is offering first homeowners $20,000 towards the deposit for any one or two bedroom apartment purchases. And, unlike other developments, there’s no need to wait until move-in.
