There aren’t many Melbourne suburbs as prestigious and highly regarded as Kew, and new project Illusso is about to make its mark in the heart of this sought-after location.

Illusso is an exclusive collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments from developer, Protec Property Group, who are clearly focused on showcasing their commitment to innovation and creativity.

Protec has brought these homes to life with architects Ascui & Co, who have been particularly considerate in ensuring these premium residences are respectful to the character of the surrounding history-rich streets. The use of textured and naturally colour materials including concrete, timber and metal, along with a smart layering of lush green landscaping, seamlessly connects these homes to the leafy street in which they reside.


Interiors at Illusso are defined by their sophisticated selection of finishes and materials, beautifully put together by design experts, Style by Knight. They have created modern interiors that are timeless and inviting.

Open plan living areas are light and bright, thanks to the expansive glazing. Large doors open out to practically disappear and allow living spaces to flow onto the spacious balconies and courtyards. Again, there’s more lush planting and these outdoor areas are just ripe for relaxing, entertaining and dining. Glass balcony balustrades get out of the way visually, to allow for maximum light in and peaceful views out.

Kitchens are expertly crafted with plenty of cabinetry in pristine 2 Pac finishes, with engineered stone benchtops and splashbacks. Built-in appliances are top-quality, including a Miele gas stove. Aesthetically this all comes together perfectly, with feature pendant lighting over spacious island benches to create a naturally inviting gathering spot.


The calmness and finishes of a bathroom can really affect how you start the day, and here there’s nothing but elegance and tranquility. More of that engineered stone detailing to the vanity and splashbacks creates a sense of consistency throughout the homes. Large mirrors, dual basins, plenty of storage cabinetry and the latest showerhead and tapware all combine to create a space that feels far more luxurious than functional.

With a range of homes in the mix in this distinctly low-rise building, some of Illusso’s residences will feature added benefits like a large butler’s pantry, study alcoves, electric blinds and gas flame fireplaces to create the perfect focus for the living area.

Some of the most tranquil and leafy streets in Melbourne can be found in Kew, yet this well-established neighbourhood still has plenty of weekend buzz to sink your teeth into. Located in the bluechip northern quarter of this close-knit community, Illusso is a short walk from a wide choice of cafes, shops, restaurants and all the amenities you’d expect. Willsmere Village shopping is a block away, and there are parks and gardens aplenty to explore.


A big drawcard for families at all stages will be the proximity to a number of respected schools, including Kew Primary School, St. Anne’s Catholic Primary School, Trinity Grammar School and Kew High School, to name a few.

With Illusso, Protec has created the chance to live in an exceptionally crafted home just 6km from the CBD in prestigious Kew, and there’ll be plenty of buyers who have been keeping their eye out for a project like this. For more information or to enquire about Illusso residences, click here.
