From the very outset, the distinguished Chester Apartments make a statement, with a wave-like facade that’s sure to be a talking point amongst Cheltenham’s architectural fans.

Leading architects Bruce Henderson have created a collection of one and two bedroom residences that are both alluring and refreshingly understated in all the right ways. Primed from top to bottom with elegant design solutions, Chester taps into contemporary trends and cleverly gives them just enough classic underpinning to ensure longevity.


Interiors have been expertly crafted by Bayley Ward and reflect the urban aesthetic that Cheltenham’s incoming young professionals are looking for. Liveability is key to the way these homes look and function, with top shelf fixtures in every room.

Living areas feature the warmth of genuine oak floors, whilst the full height sliding doors (power coated and double glazed for maximum temperature regulation) open these spaces up to the light and to the spacious outdoor areas.

Kitchens at Chester deliver much of what Bayley Ward are known for with more of those premium finishes on display. Cabinetry is an elegant combination of open and closed storage. Caesarstone benchtops are punctuated by the latest appliances from Smeg, including dishwasher. The island bench doubles as a handy breakfast bar for a quick morning routine. Even the addition of a hanging shelf above is carefully considered. These are truly kitchens to entertain in.


Natural timber finishes and neutral tones work extremely well in the bathrooms, which employ details that are both classic and new. Large format porcelain stone tiling, stylish square china basin, timber effect vanity storage, open shelving and slimline feature tiles help create a soothing space. The generous mirrored cabinetry will encourage a clutter-free environment that will again add to these bathrooms offering a welcome start and end to every day.

Some of Chester’s homes feature an inviting winter terrace garden, so you can still make the most of the light and fresh air even when the temperature drops. Featuring elegant floor tiling and glass balustrades, the smart use of louvre windows allows you to keep out the weather or let in the breeze.

Chester’s location gives it a Walk Score of 93, with everything vibrant Cheltenham has to offer right on the doorstep. Beaches, shopping, eateries, cool coffee shops – it’s all effortlessly convenient and one of many reasons the area is a popular spot on the bayside scene.


The energy of the local outdoor lifestyle is always apparent and many locals, both established and recently arrived, can’t get enough of the outdoor spaces including parks, golf courses and of course the nearby beachfront. It’s that blissful combination of the reassuringly natural with the conveniently new that gives Cheltenham its buzz.

With the Nepean Highway around the corner and Cheltenham station a few blocks away, getting to the city is simple. And with Southland Shopping Centre a short walk along the street you really have more choice for shopping, dining and entertainment than you’ve ever had.

As Cheltenham continues its rise as an inner urban hot spot amongst savvy buyers, the handful who snap up one of the prime stone and two bedroom apartments in Chester will no doubt be very glad they did.
