Vying for the title of Hawthorn’s most magnificent new collection of residences, The Kent represents the perfect balance of classic luxury and urban elegance.

Home to just twenty-one exclusive apartments, each one reflecting the renowned sophistication of the leafy Hawthorn setting, The Kent promises a lifestyle of freedom, indulgence, and relaxation.

The impressive team behind The Kent includes developers CDG Property Group, boasting a well-earned reputation for creating boutique living experiences, internationally acclaimed interior designer David Hicks, and Rothelowman, architectural visionaries in the Australian property market.


When it comes to The Kent, there is no compromise on quality. From minor design details to important material decisions, every element of these apartments showcases a sense of the team’s calculated precision and unwavering desire to craft a vision of impeccable living.

Architecturally speaking, The Kent is destined to become one of Hawthorn’s signature modern landmarks. Built on the site of the old State Savings Bank, it takes inspiration from modernist brick façades, planar geometries and clean horizontal lines. Echoing the neighbourhood’s heritage cornices and incorporating a contemporary approach to beauty, The Kent is distinctly Hawthorn-esque by nature.

Speaking of nature, The Kent is perfectly assimilated into the suburban environment through lush landscaping and planters that create a pleasing impact on the streetscape and delightfully welcome residents home.


Stepping inside an apartment at The Kent, the sense of timeless elegance with a classic, modernist touch that is idyllically captured by the interiors translates immediately.

A divine combination of textures, colours and materials, personally selected by David Hicks himself, results in spaces that are luxurious but never pretentious.

In the open-plan living area, which benefits from an abundance of natural light, timber floorboards or chevron parquetry add touches of refined warmth to a home that is hinged on enduring craftsmanship.


An entertainer’s kitchen reveals The Kent’s high standards of workmanship, where mirrored fronts and splashbacks magnify the home’s elegance. The joinery is a combination of timber veneer and granite, which, together with satin-finish overhead cupboards, delicately frames top-end Miele appliances set to deliver an exceptional cooking experience.

Apartments above level three are all half-floor residences that enjoy panoramic city vistas or leafy views to the North.

These limited edition residences also benefit from a range of amenities including a rooftop BBQ deck and private dining room with a striking fireplace feature.


The suburb of Hawthorn represents the best of Melbourne’s old and new, forging a unique lifestyle that is tranquil yet lively. The Kent’s location delivers an exciting array of local amenity, starting with Glenferrie Road’s extensive retail, entertainment and dining offering, just around the corner.

For sport and culture, the Hawthorn Aquatics Centre, the Kooyong Tennis Club and The Hawthorn Arts Centre are all just a short walk away, the latter sure to inspire and surprise you with each performance.

Travelling to and from the city will be effortless, being positioned just a 15-minute drive and train ride from the CBD.
