Located only 7km from Melbourne CBD, Gladstone Armadale is an address of fine artistry, comfort and generous space cocooned in beautifully landscaped gardens. The curated collection of homes presented by Roulston & Buxton Group, Ewert Leaf and Jack Merlo embodies all the charm and natural splendour of its sought-after locale.

As a nod to Armadale’s ‘leafy’ charm, all apartments at Gladstone Armadale are surrounded by lush landscaping. Jack Merlo describes the curated outdoor spaces as a “considered response to the vision of the architect, bringing an ordered and organic form to the built environment.”


Private gardens by Jack Merlo


Take a walk through the private gardens and be mesmerised by the thoughtfully selected foliage. Gardenia and Spring Pearls anchor the landscaping through generous underplantings. Both are evergreen species that produce beautiful flowers throughout the spring and summer months, elevating the gardens through the captivating, sweet fragrance of the blooms.

An Ornamental Pear tree with luscious shiny leaves that hang down from the branches adds a distinct focal point. In autumn, you will notice the leaves transform from green to a purply-red colour while spring will bring about an elegant display of flowers and small, russet-coloured fruits. For the feature foliage, Jack Merlo has selected a Honey Locust tree. Planted on the site corner, this medium canopy tree will be instantly recognisable by its vase-shaped canopy and soft, weeping habit. The foliage will change from bright yellow to a spectacular lime green over the seasons with winter bringing about distinct black seedpods that hang from the branches.


At the heart of a vibrant community


Outside the development, you will find yourself immersed in a lifestyle that is every bit as leafy as the gardens within.
