Impeccably crafted and perfectly situated on the Malvern border of Glen Iris, The Maitland offers 19 luxury residences that are defined by meticulous attention to detail and design, and shaped by its leafy and connected locale. 

Following the success of the Hawksburn apartments on Malvern Road, Gibson Developments has brought their passion for clean, ergonomic design, attention to detail, and obsession with quality to Glen Iris for the first time.

Together with Bruce Henderson Architects and Jack Merlo Design & Landscape, this distinguished team have successfully delivered contemporary homes with artistry and precision.


Sensitively designed to complement the heritage buildings of the surrounding area, Bruce Henderson have creatively combined warm whites and charcoal grey steel to create a linear rhythm across the façade.

Specifically orientated towards the north, terraces and walls of glass allow for an abundance of sunlight to spill into the homes, creating a consistent connection to the natural surrounds. This interaction between indoor and outdoor is accentuated with landscaped terraces, which perfectly extend to the living areas, producing exquisite apartments and private gardens.


Within these warming residences, a sense of natural refinement is produced through exquisite textures, an ordered composition of space and a nuanced palette. Subtle white walls are combined with darker accents and light textures, from cool stone to rich oak. 

Many feature grand double doors at the entrance, which lead to expansive open plan kitchen, living and dining spaces. Large, opulent island benches highlight the luxurious nature of these spaces, while clever ergonomics and storage ensure that cooking and sharing meals are effortlessly social experiences.


The bedrooms and bathrooms are curated for a wonderful retreat from the outside world. The elegant bedrooms come complete with walk-in robes and lead to ensuites with custom-designed Omvivo vanity units unique to The Maitland.

Jack Merlo has fantastically fitted each terrace area with a unique design that matches the evolving landscape. Here, plants and natural materials act as an extension of the home, while limestone and flamed granite provide sustainable touches of beauty.


Pergolas adorned with vines offer both shade in the summer and allow for sunlight in the winter, making these the perfect spots to relax at any time of the year. The two apartment terraces on level three also feature luxurious outdoor spas for an even more elevated lifestyle.

The Maitland puts residents at the heart of a friendly and welcoming village scene, close to shops, restaurants, cafés and transport.

Just outside your new home, on the historic Malvern Road, lies a host of convenience stores that makes picking up something for dinner a breeze. Step out and discover a tram stop right on your doorstep, while the nearby train station takes passengers into the CBD in a matter of minutes. Meanwhile, the nearby Monash Freeway provides yet more connectivity to the surrounding suburbs and beyond.

Surrounded by four parks, prospective owners will have a choice of their favourite place to unwind, have a picnic and lose themselves amongst swathing greenery and tree-topped canopies. Malvern Public Gardens is renowned amongst the community for its public sporting events and moonlight concerts, while Gardiners Creek Trail offers bike riders and runners an ideal place to exercise as it meanders its way through Richmond and on to Melbourne’s CBD.

With the neighbouring suburbs of Toorak, Malvern, Hawthorn, and Camberwell, Glen Iris residents rarely need to venture far to enjoy the best of Melbourne.
