Nestled in one of Maidstone’s quiet and leafy pockets, George & Stone is about to serve up a tranquil village lifestyle in an exquisitely inspired home.

George & Co is a collection of just 16 three, four and five bedroom homes in one of Melbourne’s highly-prized neighbourhoods. Each of these meticulously designed residences features two living areas, two bathrooms and a lockup garage with space for two cars.

Metro Property Development recently completed a successful project in Footscray called Highbury and saw plenty of interest in their premium townhouses. In fact, they sold all 50 homes in the project in just eight weeks.


From this experience, the team at Metro recognised there was a significant demand in the market for quality homes that were designed for efficiency and that offered a low maintenance lifestyle. In particular, the configuration of multiple living spaces and three to four bedrooms was a big requirement on buyers’ checklists. Having a location close to amenities, retail and plenty of public transport was also a key takeout.

Metro identified all of these buyer requirements and used them as a basis to create George & Stone – first of all by hunting down the perfect location in Maidstone. This they found in leafy Emu Road, with a spot that many would have had their eye on.

They then teamed up with renowned Clarke Hopkins Clarke Architects, who poured their fifty-plus years’ of experience into the task of creating the kind of homes they knew buyers, particularly young families and downsizers, were craving.


With spaciously oversized living areas across two levels, these generous homes have flexible, open plan layouts and feature high-end fixtures and finishes throughout. The inclusion of two separate living areas means everyone can have their own space.

Living areas flow out onto a private rear garden. Secluded and ready for relaxing, outdoor dining and entertaining, this perfectly-sized retreat gives you all the benefits and fresh air of a family garden without the hassle of too much maintenance.

George & Stone’s location is, of course, a big plus. Maidstone’s leafy streets have always been popular with established families and young professionals alike. But the amenity that surrounds this spot means you won’t have to go far for your morning coffee or to grab ingredients for dinner. For just about every other kind of retail fix you could want, Highpoint Shopping Centre is just a walk away.


With the perfect setting of a contemporary, inner-urban suburb surrounded by greenery (nearby Robert Barret Reserve, Thompson Reserve and Medway Golf Club all deliver plenty of greenery) Maidstone is in demand. And lucky buyers here won’t have to wait long, with construction due for completion mid-2017.

The display suite is open by appointment on-site at 48 Emu Road, Maidstone. For more details or to enquire about George & Stone click here.
