Fawkner Residences

Overlooking Fawkner Park to the east, Port Philip Bay to the south and city skyline to the north, Fawkner Residences epitomise the best of contemporary living in bespoke apartments. A mix of luxurious two-and three-bedroom apartments, the LAS Group and Qualitas joint-venture development has the convenience of a 24-hour concierge. The former office building’s cool curved edges and floor-to-ceiling glass lend a 1970s vibe to the layout, while the large fireplaces in the lobby exude a modern touch. The ground floor is packed with residents’ amenities, including a common area with a full kitchen and wine fridge. Travertine marble floors and walls enhance the chic interiors, along with a residents’ cinema and a climate-controlled wine cellar. The seventh floor has entertaining options for everyone, with a children’s playroom, pool and outdoor entertaining area, bar, gym, sauna and steam room. The finer details have all been integrated into the sleek finish, such as a skylight in the change room, and spaces to hang bags in the bathrooms. Green views from most of the building were a key part of the refurbishment, creating that balance with nature that all apartments should have.

As soon as you walk into this elegant home, the U-shaped kitchen stands out. Complete with Gaggenau oven and inbuilt microwave, five-burner gas cooktop, double sink, inbuilt dishwasher and space for a large fridge, the kitchen is a gourmand’s delight. The thick doors ensure uninterrupted views of Fawkner Park are enjoyed from a quiet space. The finer details of the home make it a standout one, like balcony ledges for wine glasses, while sitting and enjoying the view, and a separate laundry with basin. The guest bedroom has access to its own balcony, large shower and toilet. The main suite is to the left of the entrance, with a walk-in wardrobe and plinth storage for shoes. The walkway leads into the main bathroom with a freestanding tub, double sinks, shower, toilet and glass divider that allows plenty of light to flow in from the bedroom. Full-length mirrors are functional and stylistically appealing, while the balcony access allows more privacy.
