East Village is giving potential buyers the opportunity to downsize their homes but upgrade their lifestyles in Melbourne’s highly acclaimed south-east suburb of Prahran.

Prince Corporation has enlisted experts from two award-winning design studios to bring its project to fruition. Ewert Leaf designed East Village while paying homage to the period homesteads Prahran is so well-known for, and John Patrick Landscaping has installed luxuriant gardens and greenery.


“At Prince Corporation, our focus is on where and how people will want to live,” Peter Mitrevski, Prince Corporation Managing Director says. “East Village is setting a new benchmark for this type of luxurious lifestyle found in Prahran — it’s been designed to appeal to those seeking an inspired lifestyle and those wanting to downsize.”

These homes are as much about flexibility as they are opulence and liveability. Ewert Leaf has carefully avoided trends which fall in and out of fashion and instead kept to a timeless and classic design, using a palette of organic textures and neutral tones to instil a sense of elegance.

Full-height, glazed windows ensure living areas are filled with natural light and achieve unimpeded views of the city skyline. The open floorplan has been masterfully crafted to benefit from maximal airflow and concealed storage solutions keep the space looking clean and uncluttered.


Those who harbour an inner masterchef or simply enjoy hosting dinner parties will appreciate East Village’s designer kitchens. Marble benchtops and sleek European appliances combine to present spaces which are both elegant and practical.


In contrast to the flowing open plan dining and kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms are private and well-defined – providing a luxurious retreat at the end of a busy day. From plush woollen carpets to sophisticated stone finishes, it’s clear these areas are set to enhance even the simplest daily routines.


Moments from East Village’s doorstep, some of Melbourne’s most popular cafés and restaurants await. From The Smith Prahran and Bistro Thierry to Middletown Restaurant and Mr Miyagi, Prahran is truly a connoisseur’s paradise.

When it comes to retail, fashion enthusiasts will love the close proximity of Chapel Street and Hawsburn Village. Explore understated pieces at Bassike, Flannel, or Husk — brands that tie Australian wearability with European elegance — or pick up vibrant homewares from Melbourne favourite, The Family Tree.


“I love Prahran’s energy — its fashion boutiques, design and vintage shops,” Peter says. “You’re spoilt for places to eat, drink, and catch up with friends. Then you can come home to enjoy the best of contemporary living at East Village.”

Surrounded by other premium suburbs such as Armadale, South Yarra, and Windsor, the location of these homes is truly a unique opportunity for those looking for a premium village lifestyle.
