Hawthorn: a rich heritage brimming with new energy
Timeless fluidity informs the design philosophy of this clean-lined, contemporary development. The external material palette combines natural Australian timber, metal cladding and rendered finishes to compliment the heritage feel of Hawthorn and create a cohesive identity at 579 Glenferrie Road. With just 25 apartments available offering residents a secure, friendly community in a convenient, diverse and lively location, this is truly a boutique development.
Each residence has been uniquely oriented to capture natural light and John Patrick has created an urban retreat through his landscape design. The design distinction is embodied in the individual layout of each residence to suit different personalities and lifestyles while interior finishes are meticulously narrated to combine quality oak timber flooring, luxurious wool blend carpets, stone bench tops and the latest Miele appliances. A neutral colour palette was selected to inspire individual creative freedom through interior design.

There's plenty to see and do at the many gardens, parks and clubs in and around Hawthorn. There are sporting activities galore, including having hit at the Hawthorn Tennis Club or a splash around at the Hawthorn Aquatic and Leisure Centre.
Hawthorn is also home to many of Melbourne's most prestigious schools.
An increasing number of savvy residents are making Hawthorn their home, aware that the status, affluence and influence of the heritage sites, Melbourne's top private schools, and proximity to the city make Hawthorn an attractive choice for investors and residents alike.
Hawthorn has experienced solid growth in the median sales price for units in the last 5 years. The 5 year growth for one and two bedroom units in Hawthorn was 7.0% with average rental demand and a rental yield of 4.6%.*
With its prestige, heritage and highly desirable lifestyle Hawthorn has always been a stable and high performing suburb, immune to the market fluctuations that have impacted most other suburbs in Melbourne.
This ensures that you can always be confident of your investment in an area that has proven to stand the test of time.
Strong population growth, a shortage in available property and stronger demand from overseas investors should see pressure on the rental market resulting in higher rental prices.
All this equates to a great time to buy.
