A brand new Maserati with your apartment? Indeed. Setting the bar for luxury higher than most, North Balwyn’s iconic new project, NoBa, includes an unbelievable welcome gift for one lucky buyer.
We’ll get to the car in a moment, as there’s plenty more to NoBa, a prestigious collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments that live within a striking, sculptural building surely set to become a North Balwyn landmark.
Experienced developer DCF Property made the right choice in bringing renowned DKO Architects on board. They’re no strangers to creating award-winning residential properties. And with the linear, asymmetrical facade full of contrasts and curves, NoBa shows off their vision boldly.
Inside each luxurious apartment, curved walls create a connection with the curved architectural features on the building’s exterior, and add a soothing character to the interiors. Rich in natural textures and beautiful materials, these open plan homes possess a calm and inviting air that’s light-filled and spacious.
Kitchens are an integral part of living in NoBa and each continues the same design treatments and finishes. There’s a lovely simplicity that’s confidently at play here, with stone benchtops, Asko appliances, and stylish tapware. Clever island benches are built from a pleasing combination of marble and timber, providing a dual height area with a stylish breakfast bar. Entertaining friends or simply keeping a busy family fed, these stylishly functional kitchens are versatile enough to handle it.
In another example of DKO’s way of designing homes that elevate the way people live in them, the peaceful bedrooms at NoBa have been designed with large, floor to ceiling windows that open onto private balcony areas, perfect for a morning coffee or to extend your bedroom retreat outside for relaxing with a book. On a practical level, there’s also plenty of storage to keep these tranquil spaces free from clutter.
Get ready for luxury of the next level with the bathrooms. This combination of materials exudes sophistication with marble, aged iron tapware, slimline ‘finger’ tiles and an utterly magnificent custom designed mirror with a brass trim. Step into this soothing space and the day’s stresses will melt away.
DKO has really thought about the addition of communal spaces at NoBa. A choice of outdoor living options include the rooftop garden, kitted out with bbq areas, outdoor dining settings plus seating and a lawn for relaxing. In addition, a central garden is generously landscaped and features private spaces for the residents on the ground floor and green views from every apartment balcony above it.
The exclusive penthouses feature three bedrooms, double living spaces and an additional area for study. Each connects to a private rooftop garden for secluded outdoor relaxation. And with an asking price of $2.6m the premium penthouse comes with a welcome gift – a brand new Maserati Ghibli on settlement.
Explains Calvin Huang, CEO of DCF Property Group, “It is a tradition of our Chinese parent company, DCF Group, to offer an ultimate lifestyle purchase where you don’t require anything else. Imagine walking into your penthouse with a Maserati sitting in the garage waiting for you to pick up. It is a lifestyle that DCF Group wants to bring to Australia and its well-respected clients.”
With true history behind it, Balwyn North is a gem of a suburb with its friendly village atmosphere still intact. Take a stroll to the coffee shops, eateries and boutique fashion stores and you’ll see that engaging vibe for yourself.
One of Melbourne’s greener established suburbs, it also has an abundance of parks and reserves. A lush and natural location, you’ll be surrounded by trails and bike paths including the main Yarra Trail.
NoBa puts residents into a premium home in a sought-after location just 10km from the CBD. And with a choice of schools including Balwyn High School and Balwyn Primary School within the zone, we have no doubt these exquisite homes will prove popular.
