Take your place amongst the hills of leafy Ivanhoe East

The buildings at The Grounds sit on a 1.5-hectare parcel of land bound by The Boulevard, Cedric Street and Wamba and Wilfred Roads. High-end landscaper MEMLA has crafted greenery in and around the site - presenting it more like a landscaped parkland than a residential development. 

More than half of the development area is reserved for open-air green spaces and surrounds a central courtyard with built-in seating and a raised lawn area for the exclusive use of The Grounds’ residents. The development’s clever integration of 7,500sqm of landscaped green space reflects the natural beauty of its location.

It’s not all about peace and serenity, though. Ivanhoe East also offers an abundance of urban conveniences and the best in connectivity. For example, the nearby freeway can get you to the city in around 20 minutes while there’s a host of shops, cafes and restaurants within walking distance.  


A most enviable postcode for village-style living


At just the first glance, Ivanhoe East is an incomparable suburban paradise. Nick Babic of JWLand explains that the suburb is a unique blend of international and local charm. “The historic streetscape of Ivanhoe East blends European Heritage and modern style. Shopfronts and cafes spill onto the sidewalk, chatty queues at the greengrocer and deeper discussions at the local wine bar are commonplace,” Nick says.

East Ivanhoe Village Shopping Centre is the ‘village-style’ hub of the suburb. It’s a place for the community to run their daily errands, have long-awaited catch-ups or chance encounters surrounded by some of the best eateries and fresh food providores. The centre is just a ten-minute stroll from The Grounds and is home to the best collection of cafes, boutique bars, grocers and speciality retailers popular with the locals.


“Awash with charm and character, East Ivanhoe Village is a pocket of energy and the social heart of the neighbourhood.”
