As Melbourne’s booming inner north clearly shows, when developers take the time to create exquisite apartments to the standard of Windsor & Co, buyers are never far away.

A beautiful building of one and two bedroom apartments, Windsor & Co is superbly located to catch the growth as it heads north through Preston. And with its striking facade of contrasting dark brickwork, lighter concrete textures and unique architectural curves, it’s sure to be a residential icon setting the benchmark in the area.

The Preston property market is fast approaching the growth of nearby Northcote and Thornbury, with apartments driving this demand, being 44% more affordable that houses. Add to this a rental yield increase of 33% over the past decade and that local trend is hard to ignore for any investor.


Developer Caydon Property Group has created a residential offering that is welcoming from the moment you leave the vibrant streets of Preston behind and set foot through the foyer. Once inside these peaceful homes, Caydon’s experience at designing and building sophisticated homes is on display.

Spacious, open plan living and dining areas benefit from full height windows, natural timber flooring and plenty of high-end finishes – the perfect spot to enjoy some incredible city views. Available in light or dark colour schemes, these interiors are a timeless backdrop for savvy buyers to add their own touch.

Flowing through to the kitchens you’ll see quality craftsmanship in the sleek cabinetry. These impressive kitchens would not feel out of place in any large family home and are finished with the latest European appliances. Island benches are a must for a busy lifestyle and here they’re generous in size, topped off elegantly with reconstituted stone.

Windsor & Co bathrooms are classic in design yet bang up to date when it comes to functionality. Quality porcelain tiling, a floating vanity topped with reconstituted stone, a contemporary counter top basin with designer tapware, generous mirrors – all of this has been carefully combined. With plenty of open shelving and closed storage to ensure these spaces remain visually calming, you can start and end each day in tranquility.

Windsor & Co features thoughtfully landscaped communal gardens to extend the living experience. Whether you’re hosting a weekend bbq or finding your own space to relax, there’s plenty of comfortable seating in private pods, tables to entertain at and space for everyone to do their own thing.


There’s also provision for ground floor retail space within the building, which opens up the opportunity for a coffee shop or breakfast spot to make mornings even easier and truly connect these homes to the neighbourhood and High Street community.

Preston’s bustling streets full of retail and cafes are a testament to the neighbourhood’s enviable walk score of 92. The locals certainly love a wander to their favourite coffee shops, eateries and boutique stores. Take a weekend walk to Preston Market for your weekly fresh produce pick-up just 800m from your front door, or deck out your apartment with an arty piece or two from the artists and makers spaces in PAM Lane.article-image

Only 9km from the CBD, connectivity is a big part of Preston’s appeal and Windsor & Co has the bonus of train, bus and tram stops within a block.

It won’t be too long before you’ll hear of people wishing they’d purchased in Preston when they had the chance, and with Caydon’s premium residences in Windsor & Co it’s certainly a case of right place, right time.
