Ask any Kew East local and they’ll sing its praises as a friendly, safe suburb. Tucked away in its leafy streets comes new project, Laurel.

Just 14 luxury apartments make up this boutique residential building from developer Cornus, who have found the ideal spot to realise their vision for modern living.


Designed to make a quietly confident statement, Laurel’s facade is configured from brick, timber, concrete and glass. All of them timeless, yet all used to unique effect in a building that fits into the streetscape perfectly yet has a luxurious character all of its own.

Living spaces offer an open plan approach, crafted from the highest quality materials. Large, floor to ceiling glazing floods light into homes that are designed for quiet reflection as much as they are for entertaining friends and family. With doors opening out onto the balconies and courtyards there’s plenty of space to expand your lifestyle and make the most of the fresh air in this peaceful neighbourhood.


A lightness of touch in colour and tonal selection is visible throughout and Cornus have included a wealth of contemporary fixtures and fittings. Kitchens are defined by their bold lines for a functional and simple space that makes mealtimes simple. Elegant tapware, built-in European appliances from Miele and Bosch, plenty of beautifully appointed cabinetry and a generous island bench to gather around – it all combines to make these kitchen spaces utterly welcoming to both home chefs and dinner guests. 

When it comes to the bedrooms, it seems the Cornus design team has tapped into that moment when you get home after a long workday. Peaceful and calming, these are relaxing spaces to retreat into, but they’re also a great place to start the day thanks to the balcony or courtyard access for a wake-up coffee. The oversize mirrored closet and plush carpeting finish off these quiet, sun-drenched rooms.


Warm tones are at play in Laurel’s bathrooms, through the large format tiling and timber finish vanity cabinetry, all balanced visually by the charcoal feature wall behind the mirrored cabinet. The sculptural brass pendant light is a great finishing touch in a bathroom space that offers restfulness in all the right ways.

With a genuine village atmosphere, Kew East knows a thing or two about cool coffee shops, scrumptious eateries and the regular weekend shopping fix. Grabbing a latte and heading for a stroll is the go here, and you’d be hard pressed to find a suburb with as many green spaces open for relaxing and exercising. Hays Paddock is a particular favourite with local families.


The list of nearby schools is an impressive one and includes Kew High School, Balwyn North Primary School, Balwyn High School, Genazzano and Deepdene Primary School, with Trinity Grammar and Xavier College also easily accessible.

You can drive to the CBD in under 20 minutes or jump on the tram at Kew Junction, but all of these conveniences are just the icing on the cake. The real prize here is the collection of luxuriously crafted homes at Laurel.
