Designed by architects Woods Bagot and developed by Perri Projects, The Englefield development in Melbourne’s South Yarra not only looks super slick, it boasts home automation, personalised valet services and remote control technology too.
Comprising seven penthouse-sized apartments that offer all the benefits and privacy of a freestanding home, without the upkeep, the development is a response to research that suggests that more and more people are seeing the benefits of apartment living.
“Our experience and research have indicated that there is a new demographic of purchasers seeking out luxury apartments in curated developments that offer convenience as well as space and privacy. These purchasers seek either two or three bedrooms, a study and a large outdoor entertaining space, in a low-rise, premium address that affords them the privacy they desire,” says Perri Projects Director, David Scalzo.
Technology-based features abound within the development where residents will be able to control their home’s lighting, cooling, heating and blinds through a smartphone. “This technology is currently already used in state-of-the-art luxury homes, but it’s rare to see it incorporated into boutique apartment developments,” says David.
The complex will also feature a unique valet service concept. Located in the lobby, each apartment will have its own valet store which will facilitate the private collection and delivery of items – think shopping and dry cleaning, cleaning, housekeeping and home maintenance. “Each year, the residents will select the service providers they deem to be the best in their area, and entrust them with access to the private lobby space to service the residents and their homes,” says David.
With lush landscaping and a high-end build, the apartments have been designed with three sides of natural light and soaring ceilings which increase the feeling of space and make them feel more like a freestanding luxury residence.
