For many people, apartment-living is the ideal set up. It’s a low-maintenance lifestyle, with top-quality amenities and finishes all nestled within a safe and secure community. 

However, for those who would prefer to live within a smaller, more intimate complex, this arrangement can be difficult to find. Which is why a boutique new development in Bentleigh East, ‘Laurel’, ticks all of the right boxes. 

With just 10 apartments in the entire complex, it has all of the perks of apartment living, but enough privacy for every resident to have their own space.

“It’s on a great street, in a quiet location, yet an easy walk to everything,” explains Tim Brown, Director of CastranGilbert.

“As it’s a boutique block of only 10, the real plus here is size. Each is at least 70 square metres, plus a balcony, so they are much bigger than most of the competition.”


Each apartment comes with two spacious bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, while the main will have a private en suite.

There will also be an open-plan living, kitchen and dining area featuring only the finest finishes from top to bottom.

The combined area connects through to an entertainment terrace, creating the ultimate space for hosting guests, and no doubt impressing them at the same time with the level of quality found throughout. 

“It’s beautifully finished with wide Oak floors and a stunning earthy pallet,” Mr Brown says.

Wool carpet will cover the floors in the bedrooms, the kitchen will come with stone benches, glass splashbacks and Smeg appliances, and the bathroom will contain porcelain tiles and stone vanity units.

It’s the little features such as lift access, additional storage and secure, underground parking that make it hard to resist the allure of no-fuss apartment living.


As for location, the very best of Bentleigh East is all within walking distance.

Situated in the heart of the vibrant south-eastern suburb, but tucked away far enough to ensure peace and serenity, Laurel is close to the Centre Road strip of shops which comes complete with a supermarket, plenty of delicious cafes and restaurants, and all of the essentials for easy-living.

While the Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre is around the corner, and a range of public transport options and a number of top schools, universities, Chadstone Shopping Centre and Southland are all nearby.
