Located in the heart of Sunshine, an ever-evolving pocket of Melbourne, the collection of homes at Verse has been designed with a strong focus on livability, high-end design, and immaculate quality.
Verse places residents in the centre of modern conveniences. The Sunshine Marketplace, a centre containing major retailers and popular supermarkets, as well as a Village cinema, is only a 4-minute walk away from the project’s doorstep. And, with the Sunshine Railway Station just 10 minutes away by foot, residents can get to the city in just 18 minutes. There is no other project in Sunshine as convenient and easily accessible as Verse, and residents are sure to live a streamlined lifestyle in these luxurious homes.
Paragon Development Group has enlisted the help of premium residential experts Chamberlain Architects and John Patrick Landscape Architects to bring these homes to fruition. The combination of these powerhouses has resulted in a project that showcases distinctly modern architecture, instilled with an air of understated luxury, and beautifully curated outdoor living spaces.
These homes have been crafted by a team with a deep understanding and respect for the garden suburb concept. The pre-existing trees have been retained and incorporated into the bold façade which echoes the homeliness of the interior spaces – expressed by a monochrome palette and metal accents blended with timber cladding.
“The homes at Verse are a unique addition to the vibrant, changing culture of Melbourne’s inner west,” says Glen Chamberlain, Director of Chamberlain Architects. “Modern townhouses in a bucolic garden setting are perfect for families and people looking for a low maintenance lifestyle, without sacrificing light, space and a connection to nature.”
The generous outdoor spaces feature lush, liberal vegetation and tall fences, creating the perfect sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Connected to these spaces, each residence comes complete with a charming balcony, capitalising on the surrounding scenery, while inside the dual aspect windows invite natural light to fill the living areas.
The development team had a vision for Verse — to create comfortable yet contemporary homes which are set a new benchmark in living — and the realisation of this vision is outstanding. The earthy tones and wool carpet finishes imbue a sense of calm throughout the open plan interiors while carefully selected materials showcase durability and timelessness — evident throughout the living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms.
In the heart of the home, the kitchen is stylish yet homely. The result is an area that adapts to the individual. Whether baking a cake, experimenting with something new, or simply preparing a cup of tea, the sleek Miele appliances, marble benchtops, and modern feature lights ensure the experience is pleasing.
Outside, residents have access to an abundance of modern amenities. Sunshine has become home to an assortment of cuisines. Local favourite Co Do serves Asian-fusion while Aghan Shaheen offers delicious koftas and kebabs. For a classic Australian barbecue-inspired menu, head over to Sunshine Social or enjoy brunch at Little Rays café.
On weekends, locals can be found jogging along Kororoit Creek Trail, where one can see the best of Sunshine’s native wildlife and greenery. The trail connects to Buckingham Reserve, where picnic benches, BBQ facilities, and an impressive playground create the perfect setting for a weekend get-together.
Only 600 metres from the doorstep, residents can enjoy a dip in Sunshine Leisure Centre’s swimming pool, or join one of the many group classes on offer there. This hub of health and wellbeing is a staple for the community.
