Surrounded by relaxing parks, cool coffee spots and a cultured yet friendly local vibe, Hawthorn is a popular choice for those seeking a true Melbourne lifestyle – and Luminary might just be one of the best new residential opportunities we’ve seen there in a while.
Apartment buildings don’t get much more exclusive than this. Developers Lechte Corporation are creating just 22 stunning residences in a building that has a quiet confidence all of its own.
A boutique collection of two and three bedroom apartments, Luminary balances a mixed-use approach perfectly, with the ground floor featuring food and drink options
Making great use of the floorplan, the architects have created a building of straight and curved forms. Sculpted exterior concrete facades add a unique character to these homes, framing windows and balconies with soft curves.
When we talk about attention to detail, we’re really focusing on the decisions made around fixtures and finishes, and there’s plenty to be impressed with at Luminary. From the light timber finish flooring in the open plan living spaces to the marble tiling to the bathroom, the design benchmark is a high one.
Speaking of the bathrooms, get ready for real elegance here. Classic marble finishes combine with some of the most contemporary ceramic basins and striking black tapware to create the kind of cool yet sophisticated space we’re more used to seeing in a premium hotel. Under vanity storage keeps things neat.
But let’s focus on the heart of these homes — the living and kitchen areas. We love the feature cabinetry of the living area, which offers plenty of elegant storage, space for the biggest of big screen TVs and display everything you can’t wait to show off.
Luminary’s elegant floor to ceiling windows are a testament to their intention for natural light to flood into the living spaces. Free-flowing and open plan, they offer the chance to create your life the way you want it.
Take a look at the size of the marble-topped island bench and you instantly imagine the entertaining value of these homes. These kitchens are sleek and ready for whatever party you can throw at them. Elegant black tapware sets the tone from the start, and brass finish detailing to the range hood adds just the right amount of industrial chic.
Storage for your locally-bought ingredients? Check, theres plenty of cabinetry and drawers for the avid chef, plus the built-in appliances and fridge also ensure this space looks as good as it performs. And if you love your outdoor spaces, Luminary has them in spades. Opening up from the living area the private outdoor terraces are big enough for plenty of guests and make outdoor living a reality. Dedicated bbq area and room for a generous outdoor dining setting mean weekend get-togethers and sunset relaxation after work may just be your new regular indulgence.
Luminary doesn’t really have to try hard to sell its sought-after Hawthorn location. This vibrant, inner city suburb consistently ranks highly on Melbourne’s liveability scale and has easy transport links, great bars and a wide selection of cool eateries… and the exclusive Luminary is a new shining light amongst all of it.
