Positioned enviably close to the beach, Highett House delivers superior bayside living for those looking for a beautiful apartment outside of the city.

Highett House is a collection of just 32 residences, each one designed with exceptional craftsmanship and a distinctive Italian flair.

The development by Marcopolo Property evokes a feeling of home with a façade designed by architects Planar Arc that echoes traditional Italian masonry. Composed of earthy tones and window frame mouldings, the building delivers a sense of warmth, while dark glazing and metal cladding afford the development a contemporary edge.


With attention to every detail, there is a sense of luxury with Italian sensibility from the inside out. And like the exterior, the interior design marries warm materiality reminiscent of Roman villas with modern principles reflective of Melbourne living.

“For Highett House, we curated the best materials and tactile experiences, inspired by
our travels. They have been thoughtfully selected to evoke a sense of pleasure and wonderment,” commented Obaid Naqebullah, Founder of Marcopolo Property.

To achieve a sense of space and light, Highett House residences are designed with high ceilings, expansive glazing and generous balconies. Feature walls have tactile beading detail and perfectly placed lighting, adding character and a point of interest.

“Beautiful, timeless interiors celebrate a warm and natural material palette. There is attention to every detail, creating comfortable spaces made for modern living,” explained Naqebullah.

A statement of calm elegance, each bedroom is a refined retreat featuring built-in robes and wool blend carpets. Master bedrooms will benefit from complete climate control with split system air conditioning and bedrooms in larger residences enjoy their own private balconies.

Highett House has been designed with targeted 6-star sustainability ratings, featuring solar-boosted gas heating, energy-efficient appliances, LED lighting and rainwater tanks.

Just 19km from the Melbourne CBD, Highett House is conveniently located within walking distance of a medical centre, green parklands, and retail paradise, Southland Shopping Centre. The beach is just a few minutes drive away – the temptation to go for a swim or a game of beach volleyball will be there all summer long.


Perfectly placed for a convenient, active and practical lifestyle, those who buy a Highett House apartment will be offered complimentary memberships at the nearby Fitness First for the first two years.

Prices for one bedroom apartments start at $390,000 and two bedrooms from $470,000 – well below the $580,000 median for two-bedroom units in the suburb.

Completion of the project is expected for mid-2019.
