Conveniently located only 9km northeast of Melbourne CBD, The Grounds in Ivanhoe East offers an elegant collection of apartments and luxurious townhomes that celebrate the human connection to nature.
Through a carefully selected material palette and the clever integration of 7,500sqm of landscaped green space, residents at The Grounds are actively encouraged to let themselves be embraced by nature.
The Boulevard, Wilfred and Wamba celebrate modern living amongst natural elements with architecturally designed, boutique apartments. Each two, three and four-bedroom home features generously proportioned floor plans, thoughtfully oriented to maximise daylight whilst overlooking the verdant vistas and dazzling city skyline - ideal for purchasers who are looking to downsize without downgrading.
The Oak Terraces offer a limited collection of only 12 exclusive double-storey townhomes. Each home features expansive living areas across the ground floor and private retreats on the upper levels - offering its residents ample space to enjoy life at home as well as a quiet sanctuary for rejuvenation. All floor plans are designed to accommodate a variety of lifestyles with adaptable layouts that can easily change with the needs of a growing family. Features include an extended living zone and a spacious landing on the upper level that can be transformed into a second living space, a spacious home office or a dedicated media room.
Across all residences at The Grounds, a cohesive design approach harmoniously marries the architecture and interiors with native flora. From the streetscape, the bold facade is immediately defined by the confident use of raw and refined materials; the paired back forms revealing exceptional craftsmanship. The splendour of the location merges seamlessly with the interiors thanks to the full-height double glazed windows and sliding doors - further dissolving the boundaries between the home and the world outside without compromising on privacy.
The generous use of glass invites an abundance of natural daylight into the living spaces without affecting the home’s thermal properties. All apartments and townhomes at The Grounds are offered in two distinct colour schemes. Aptly named Botanic and Natural, the palettes offer a choice of sage or natural white joinery for the kitchen cabinetry and bathroom vanities. As standard, all homes feature engineered oak floors and pure wool loop pile carpeting underfoot while full-height joinery in the kitchens and natural stone textures across the large format bathroom tiles create a sense of grandeur.
All kitchens showcase premium Smeg appliances - demonstrating the equal attention paid to form, functionality and longevity. Practicality is also at the forefront with 30mm engineered reconstituted natural stone benchtops, while the Vintec 50 bottle wine fridge adds a touch of sophistication.
Outside, acclaimed landscape architects, MEMLA bring their signature flair for elevating natural elements. Through the considered use of foliage including Sweet Bursarias, River Wattles and River Red Gum trees, the team presents a modern reinterpretation of Australia’s famous landscape through shared gardens, grassy open spaces and connected pathways. Dotted throughout are landscaped enclaves offering beautifully appointed spaces to gather with friends, family and neighbours or spend time alone with nature.
Construction has commenced at The Grounds and residents are expected to move in September 2022.
