The luxurious homes at The Grounds, Ivanhoe East, are a downsizer’s dream. Presented by JWLand, this development is ideally located on the highly sought-after Boulevard. The collection of two, three and generously proportioned four-bedroom apartments and townhomes offer an idyllic lifestyle upgrade while you downsize. 


Modern and sophisticated interiors


Downsizing is the perfect opportunity to come home to architecturally designed, contemporary interiors and The Grounds is no exception. Across all residences, a cohesive design approach marries the interiors with Ivanhoe’s serene natural surroundings. The generous glazing invites an abundance of natural daylight into the core of the homes without affecting their thermal properties - creating an airy and spacious living zone perfect for entertaining friends and family. 

All residences are offered in two equally elegant colour schemes, allowing you to start the next chapter of your life in homes that reflect your personality. Aptly named Botanic and Natural, the palettes offer a choice of sage or natural white joinery for the kitchen cabinetry and bathroom vanities. As standard, all homes feature engineered oak floors and pure wool loop pile carpeting underfoot, while full-height joinery in the kitchens and natural stone textures create a sense of grandeur unique to the development.


A backyard without maintenance


The Grounds’ clever integration of 7,500sqm of landscaped green spaces reflects the natural beauty of its location. Thoughtfully curated by landscape architects MEMLA, the green spaces help maintain the unique biodiversity of Ivanhoe East whilst offering downsizers the traditional ‘backyard’ lifestyle - without any of the maintenance. 

The Grounds invites you to leave behind weekends spent mowing the lawn but still enjoy the level of outdoor privacy and seclusion traditionally offered by detached houses. Immerse yourself in the meticulous landscaping defined by Sweet Bursarias, River Wattles and magnificent River Red Gum trees. The development’s central courtyard anchors the expansive outdoor space, creating the perfect setting to catch up with neighbours in the fresh air or revel in the natural beauty during quiet evenings. 

Just moments from home are many public outdoor spaces that encourage a healthier, more active lifestyle. From dog-friendly parks to lush bushlands and walking trails along the Yarra, the enviable proximity means these spaces act as an extension to your new home.


Downsize, not downgrade


Personal trainer Debbie Allen downsized to The Parade at Cambell5 by JWLand recently and commented on her experience; “We were really excited to sell our family house and move into a more manageable home. By downsizing, we didn’t want to downgrade. We still wanted plenty of space but less in the way of cleaning and maintenance. Our new apartment wins on all counts.” 

Debbie enjoyed the advantage of buying off-the-plan, which allowed her to have a say in the design of her new home. “The team at JWLand was really accommodating. We were able to reposition storage elements, add doors within living zones and appoint extra joinery for my home office. We love being part of a community of owners; we all look out for each other. It makes it so easy to lock and leave whenever we want to.”

At The Grounds, downsizing offers more than just architectural interiors and professionally landscaped gardens. Like Debbie’s experience, this development is also perfect for a ‘lock and leave’ lifestyle; offering the flexibility, security and peace of mind to lock up and leave your home at a moment’s notice. Whether it’s a long-awaited holiday or an impromptu interstate trip to visit family, there is an undeniable peace of mind in The Grounds’ lifestyle. 

The Grounds truly does offer a downsizer’s dream. Construction has commenced, and residents are expected to move in September 2022 - for more information on The Grounds or to book an inspection, click here.
