Wonderfully hidden down a tree-topped side street in historic Glen Iris and ready to move in by mid-2020, East Grove guarantees a warm, luxurious and connected home.

East Grove is proudly presented by Fortis, who are committed to bringing beautiful, bespoke residences to life. Fortis offers prospective buyers the chance to view some of their recently completed residences by appointment, in order to experience first-hand the level of quality and consideration that represents all of their developments.


Their latest project is no different. The elegant exterior at East Grove blends seamlessly with the leafy residential streetscapes that typify Glen Iris. Beautiful and light terracotta-coloured panels creatively contrast with charcoal bricks, as swathing framing defines the generous balconies. Discrete screening delivers privacy and shade to each apartment, while lavish and lush planting by John Patrick Landscape Architects completes this botanical metamorphosis. 

This commitment to quality and luxury in the façade is continued into the interiors through high-grade materials and gorgeous touches by Ewert Leaf.

“East Grove’s living spaces embody a sense of retreat and understated style,” says Ewert Leaf’s director, Will Leaf.


“There is a real sense of space, with maximised ceiling heights and full height glazing creating an integral connection to the outdoor terrace and courtyard spaces.

“Stunning chevron timber flooring features, teamed with clean white walls create a clean, contemporary palette, inviting residents to add a layer of individual style.”


This extends to the iron detailing and fixtures that magnificently combine with the gorgeous, warming oak flooring and elegant kitchen areas.

Here, the meticulous attention to detail consistent with this project is accentuated. A place of utmost functionality and sleek design, marble benchtops and splashbacks prove a luxe complement to the grey ash joinery. Miele appliances, pendant lighting and Signorino tiles continue this opulent philosophy, while generous storage and butler’s pantry provide perfect usability. 


Share everyday meals or host special occasions in your very own dining space that flows seamlessly from the kitchen. Take in botanical views whilst enjoying fine food and wine, before indulging in an after-dinner drink on the terrace or courtyard.

Curated by John Patrick Landscape Architects, these outdoor spaces are specifically designed for a spacious and secluded retreat. Unwind with friends in an enviable experience of terrace living amid sweeping vistas of the tree-topped streets below. 

Ambient bedrooms are bathed in natural light via full-height sliding doors that lead out onto enticing private terraces. Plush wool carpets add a sense of warmth and calm, complemented by the generous built-in-robes. 

The bathrooms, meanwhile, emanate the same sense of luxe with the implementation of a sophisticated palette and high-end fixtures and fittings. A tailored aesthetic is also achieved with custom metalwork in the joinery. 


Step out and revel in East Grove’s prime position. Here, the best of Glen Iris’ cafés, retail, recreation, education and transport options can be found with ease. Take an early morning stroll or jog to Gardiners Creek Trail before savouring specialty coffee and tantalizing brunch fare at the British-themed Saint James Café. 

In the evening, discover a host of dining options to satisfy a range of palates, or meet up with friends at nearby Milton Wine Shop to stock your cellar with the finest selection of local and international wines to take and enjoy in your beautiful new home.
