Unrivalled inner-city living

By Jack Hayes

Nestled impeccably between city and sea, the streets of South Melbourne are set to welcome Lenny – a unique six-level luxury development in the heart of the buzzing South Melbourne.

Marketed by Eton Property Group, Lenny will stand at 161 Buckhurst St, an easy walking distance to South Melbourne Market, Bay Street shopping precinct, South Melbourne Primary School and the nearby Montague light rail station.

The development is the first of its kind for the suburb, with five full-floor boutique residences, boasting unbridled views of both the city skyline and nearby bay. Each residence has direct and secure private lift access.

With ceiling heights ranging up to nearly three metres, the spaciousness of each apartment is complemented with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms plus a powder room, a substantial open plan living and dining area and two roomy terraces that capture sunlight with ease. Each residence has two car spaces.

Richard Newling-Ward of Bayley Ward Architects said the kind free-flowing attitude to space was rarely seen in South Melbourne and was perfect for those looking to downsize. “The inspiration for Lenny was to design something targeting a sophisticated buyer. The owner-occupier market really understands what South Melbourne has to bring,” he said.

“From the living room you have clear views of the city, and as you walk through the apartment to the master bedroom, you have a terrace at the back which looks towards Port Melbourne beach where you get a really good sense of space. This is what inspired us to believe one apartment per floor was the path to go.”

Each home’s glamorous, eye-catching form enjoys an entire level. “When you go through the apartment, there isn’t a need for any more space than what you have already got,” Mr Newling-Ward said.

Lenny’s location is recognised with a Walkability Rating of 94 per cent, which means all the essential amenities such as transportation, shopping, schools, medical and more are all located within close proximity.

Style and luxury have been a keen focus on the design of these five apartments, with lavish bedrooms, superbly serviced by fully fitted robes, and luxe bathrooms complete with modern innovative tapware.

With construction beginning in September, Eton Property Group’s James Burne, said this boutique development was going to gain immense interest from buyers from the South Melbourne area and surrounds.

“Right now, we are taking expressions of interest in our soft launch phase, and it won’t be long before we have our grand launch,” he said.
