When considering your next - or perhaps first - home in your property journey, there are just as many reasons to look at developments in the suburbs as there are to look within the CBD. While city living typically offers a dynamic lifestyle, the suburbs are often viewed as more peaceful and serene. These opposing characteristics lead many to assume that a peaceful suburban lifestyle must come at the cost of urban connectivity - but with the right development, this doesn’t have to be the case. 

Off-the-plan developments across the state are now providing a balanced approach to the ultimate suburban lifestyle. Purchasers at ASPIRE, CALIBRE and Prestige on Pine - developments marketed through Barry Plant Projects - will find themselves less than an hour’s drive from the CBD but with beautifully designed homes within spacious and established neighbourhoods.

These, and other modern developments also have a clear focus on urban amenities including access to public transport, retail, cafes, restaurants, schools, gyms and other daily conveniences. Chee-ky Dunlop, Director at Barry Plant Keysborough comments on why urban amenities are so important when considering suburban homes; “offering thoughtfully designed homes in quiet enclaves with easy access to urban lifestyle amenities really is the best of both worlds.” 

As any architect can attest, buildings that are designed with thought and intent can play a major role in shaping its residents’ lifestyles. ASPIRE, CALIBRE and Prestige on Pine have been designed to foster a more active lifestyle - with plenty of desirable amenities within walking distance.

ASPIRE and CALIBRE developments in Keysborough offer high quality, off-the-plan apartments that make the most of their premium suburban location. “Both ASPIRE and CALIBRE are in close proximity to several public and private schools including Keysborough South Primary School and Haileybury Private School,” Chee-ky explains. 

“For purchasers who have yet to start a family, school zones may seem like a future concern but five, seven or 10 years can pass fairly quickly. Owning a property within a reputable school zone means you can have good choices when the time comes. Both developments have placed obvious importance on elevating and enhancing the family lifestyle well into the future. Whether purchasers already have a growing family or are planning one in the future, ASPIRE and CALIBRE both offer thoughtful configurations to meet a variety of family needs,” explains Chee-ky.

Similarly, Prestige on Pine complements its meticulous interiors with a deliberate focus on enhanced liveability though its location. This off-the-plan development offers many first home buyers the chance to enter the property market with a newly built home without compromising on urban connectivity. 

Located in the established and leafy suburb of Boronia, Monique Fitzgerald from Barry Plant Boronia describes the homes as “the perfect development in the much sought after foothills locale.” The developers have ensured purchasers don’t have to sacrifice amenities when entering the property market; “these homes offer an abundance of recreation and lifestyle amenities, married with high accessibility to transport and major business centres. These off-the-plan apartments provide an easy and convenient lifestyle close to everything at Boronia Central,” Monique continues. 

The lifestyles on offer at ASPIRE, CALIBRE and Prestige on Pine present the best of both worlds for both investors and owner-occupiers. “These developments show that well designed, newly built, suburban homes don’t have to compromise on urban amenities like they have had to in the past,” explains Monique, suggesting that lifestyle and urban connectivity should be major factors when purchasing a property.
