The Woods is a collection of just seven high-end, beautifully appointed townhouses, perfectly positioned in the heart of Melbourne’s leafy east – North Balwyn.

The large, luxe interiors and private, premium lifestyle offered by The Woods have seen it launch to market with great success, with the majority of interest coming from downsizers.

article-imageThe growing demand for the exclusive townhouses is anchored in the remarkable team of craftspeople who developed the vision for The Woods, offering a secure promise of excellence and value once the development is brought to life.

“By creating beautiful, sculptural homes, we are creating more than a place to live and to be proud of. We’re creating a place of value,” stated Calvin Huang, Director of DCF Property.

The architecture of The Woods, commandeered by DKO Architecture, is a lesson in the fundamentals of form. With simple, clean and bold lines framed by carefully selected natural elements, these homes are a pleasing addition to the prestigious North Balwyn neighbourhood.

article-image“Elevated and enveloped by greenery, stone and steel, there is a sense of natural grandeur to the architecture,” explained Kai Chua of DKO Architects.

Each of the townhouses has three bedrooms, two or three bathrooms, and two car parking spaces. These homes are built for a community of buyers who are seeking ample space, either for a family to enjoy or to allow for a spare bedroom and a study.

Expansive glazing surrounds the open-plan living space, allow residents to enjoy the lush garden surrounds from within during colder months, and gracefully combine indoor and outdoor spaces during summer.

“Living spaces are bathed in natural light, and provide a seamless connection with greenery outside,” said Andrew Zunica from Zunica Interiors.


The staircase is a remarkable feature of the main living space and a perfect example of how the simple elements of the interior design have been used as a chance to push the boundaries of creativity and innovation to develop a visual masterpiece.

The kitchens are founded on solidity and simplicity. A marvellous composition of quality materials and an exceptionally modern colour scheme reign in this space – the black timber cabinetry, natural stone benchtops and bespoke brass detailing coalesce to create an undeniable sense of luxury. Combined with premium Gaggenau appliances, this kitchen delivers functionality with style.

The master bedroom, fitted with textured woollen carpets, an idyllic walk-through dressing space, and considered storage and lighting details, has been designed in the fashion of a boutique hotel suite.


“Each of our projects is imbued with the same qualities as fine art – considered, crafted and unique,” says Calvin Huang, Director of DFC Property.

The bathrooms are impressively spacious and filled with sunlight, allowing you to go about your routine with ease and enjoyment. Considered details such as brass joinery and elegant lighting sit within a palette of textured natural stone and soft grey tiles to create a tranquil and relaxed composition.

Step out from the confines of your townhouse and you’ll be met with gorgeous tree-lined avenues, manicured gardens and wide expanses of green parklands. Strolling through North Balwyn, you’ll soon discover why it is renowned as one of the most picturesque pockets of Melbourne’s east.


Matching its idyllic setting is the suburb’s well-established lifestyle of effortless sophistication. You’ll find nearby prestigious schools and a fine café culture to enjoy, as well as an enticing selection of high-street shopping. For more options, simply drive to the CBD – take the M3 and you’ll arrive in under 20 minutes.

The three-bedroom townhouses at The Woods start from $1,495,000.
