Boutique projects don’t get much more boutique than six luxury residences, and that’s what’s on offer at Epicure in leafy Kew.
The combined 50 years developer Kincaid Projects have in the building and development industry is evident in every design decision at Epicure. Angular, sculptural and distinctly modern, these homes reflect the subtle confidence the local streetscapes have developed over the years, with a clever selection of contemporary materials, finishes and landscaping. 
All of this is draped in lush planting, skilfully connecting the architecture to the planting at street level. The result is six utterly private homes filled with a modern aesthetic.
Beginning in the entrance lobby, created with herringbone floorboards, oak panelling and brass lighting, the transition from the street into these sophisticated homes is a carefully defined one.
Epicure’s living spaces translate that external linearity into an elegant and calm environment. The modernist angles and muted tones – including angular ceilings that add a loft-living feel to the upper floor – have been curated to enhance every moment throughout the day. Refined living is very much on the cards.
With foodie kitchen experts Bergman & Co. guiding the design, Epicure’s kitchens highlight the tangibly modern approach to the mealtime experience. These spaces, beautifully fitted out by Poliform with their cutting-edge Italian cabinetry and finishes, will encourage an uncluttered approach to cuisine with their pristine lines, and offer so much sleek cabinetry you’ll never want for storage.
With details like the latest Combi-Steamer from V-ZUG, a built-in wine fridge and premium tapware from RogerSellar, the standard is a high one. All of this comes with a considered selection of materials and fixtures, and a choice of light or dark palette, making these kitchens a real exploration of the senses.
Sumptuous from floor to ceiling, bathrooms here are rich in textures and tones to lift those daily rituals out of the ordinary.  Luxurious combinations of large format tiling and the purity of timber, glass soften the room through those muted tones. Elegant cabinetry, exquisite brass tapware and a generous walk-in shower all interact fluidly to create a truly tactile, tranquil haven.
Bedrooms feature lush carpeting and yet more tactile surfaces in darker tones to create a sense of calm. These retreats lead through to walk-in robes with more of Poliform’s stunning craftsmanship on display, adding a high-end boutique experience to your daily dressing routines.
Kew somehow continues to pull off the trick of combining the heritage of a long-established suburb with the steady influx of the new. Think leafy streets filled with cool cafes beside famed eateries. Think vibey Saturday nights and quiet lazy Sundays. Epicure takes this dichotomy of local spirit and delivers it in homes that are at one with their surrounds.
This is a community that embraces the finer things with equal fervour as the daily conveniences. Become a try local amongst refined eaters like George Calombaris’ Hellenic Republic, Cru Café & Wine Bar and Adeney Milk Bar. Catch a movie at Lido Cinemas, or indulge in a spot of retail at the many boutique stores along High Street. 
Add easy transport connections, a choice of nearby schools including Genezzano, Swinburne, Xavier, MLC and Trinity Grammar, plus a wealth of parks and places to relax and Epicure offers you a taste of the perfect lifestyle.
