Abbotsford has quietly become one of Melbourne’s hotspots over the past couple of years. With its thriving arts scene, cafe culture and leafy streets it’s no wonder boutique developments like the new OPAT on the Park are choosing this location.

Taking up a prime corner spot overlooking Victoria Park sports stadium, this collection of one and two bedroom homes offers a great first step into inner urban living. Or indeed, a great investment thanks to the increase in demand for low maintenance living in this popular suburb.

Down to the nitty gritty and at the heart of these apartments is a simple, open-plan living space. They’re flooded with light thanks to the floor to ceiling windows featuring architectural window shades for temperature control and privacy. The designers understand the importance of a hard-wearing floor and the timber effect laminate flooring is tough enough to take the knocks from a busy lifestyle.

Love cooking? The custom-designed galley kitchens are bright and functional, with modern appliances and a stylish gloss tiled splashback. As you’d expect there’s plenty of storage, and the contemporary conductive stove tops mean the clean lines of the kitchen bench tops are uninterrupted.

We’re always keen to see homes with a good breakfast spot, and the movable island bench is the perfect place to start the day. As a bonus it has been designed to be easily movable, ideal for when you want to open up your space for entertaining.

Each apartment has a cosy balcony perfect for a lazy weekend brunch or relaxing at the end of the day. In keeping with the light approach, each features a frosted glass balustrade to offer privacy whilst letting all the light flood into these homes.

Without being showy, the bathrooms are well appointed with plenty of storage and act as an ensuite in most of the apartments thanks to the smart layout.

The beauty of the location is apparent when you add up the local attractions and amenities. The Yarra bike trail has been a family favourite for years, and it’s the perfect place for a leafy stroll by the river. Closer still is Abbotsford Convent just a short walk away. This cultural centre is chock full of galleries, cafes and picnic spots, not to mention a regular calendar of events and exhibitions.

One of OPAT’s big draw cards is the convenience that surrounds it. Victoria Park train station is across the street for a quick and easy commute, whilst a host of great shopping and cafe options are close by on Johnston Street (Dr Morse Bar & Eatery is a favourite of ours). You’re also close to the popular Collingwood/Fitzroy divide that is Smith Street, where you can catch the retail buzz amongst bars and eateries competing for favour with the fashion and furniture stores.

This boutique apartment opportunity opposite one of Melbourne’s iconic sports ovals is almost 50% sold already, so if you’re keen to grab your own slice of the Abbotsford lifestyle, get your running shoes on.
