With one-of-a-kind views across the tree-topped landscape of Balwyn and to the CBD, DKO Architecture has teamed up with Mim Design and Paul Bangay to present Balwyn Park.
Perfectly situated in a family-friendly location, these 12 exclusive 3 bedroom homes brilliantly mirror the park opposite.
Greenery is central to Balwyn Park’s exterior, where meandering vines and spilling tendrils adorn every angle of the home. This is wonderfully interwoven with handmade Petersen Brick, perfectly complementing the bright plantlife that surrounds the façade.
The grand entrance to these wonderful homes features a long, mirrored surface, treated with a luxurious bronze hue. These are sided by dark timber front doors, fixed with sophisticated black handles. As high-end as the suite of finishes that lie within, Balwyn Park’s entrance provide an accurate first impression of the home.
Inside, residences are treated with custom, carefully crafted joinery, hand-selected by Miriam Fanning, owner and principal at Mim Design.
“A lot of time and thought has been put into those exterior finishes, shape and form. We wanted to translate that into the interior as well, with soft curvature through part of the planning and the walls,” she says.
A most sophisticated surface for preparing food, natural stone benchtops portray a graceful and refined aesthetic. Generous, expansive windows allow for constant beams of light to enter vast living areas, providing a picture-perfect backdrop to the sweeping vistas outside.
Designed to celebrate both the larger and the smaller moments of beauty and effortlessness a home should bring, much of Balwyn Park’s immediate sense of allure is owed to the timeless and universally elegant suite of materials used throughout. Softly muted tones are enriched by their luxurious tactility. Every element within these homes has been meticulously selected to impart a feeling of sensory delight.
Similar contemplation has been made with the vast storage opportunities and the ingenious flow of the space. Reminiscent of how modern lives unfold within these spaces, stylish kitchen pantries are offered for your culinary supplies, while a large wine fridge in the scullery adheres to the residence's luxury fittings. Elegant living room cabinetry and spacious bathroom vanities complete intuitive designs that leave no stone unturned.
Outdoor terraces connect seamlessly with the living area via large sliding doors, leading to the most generous of entertaining areas throughout the warmer months of the year. On the ground floor, botanical courtyards create contemporary havens of greenery, where quaint stepping stones lead to and from the residences.
These outdoor retreats are filled with an array of plantlife that surrounds the façade, taking inspiration from its close surroundings.
“Balwyn Park sits in the leafy eastern suburbs of Melbourne, renowned for its large and beautiful gardens,” says Paul Bangay, Director at Paul Bangay Garden Design.
“This development provided a rare opportunity to envelope the building in deep lush garden beds full of mass plantings of flowering evergreen plants and trees. The overall feeling is one of a large domestic garden blending with the surrounding parks and gardens.”
Beyond this, residents can enjoy the strong sense of community that flows effortlessly through the leafy streets. Its collection of recreational retreats, from parks to sporting clubs and gymnasiums, is reminiscent of a suburb that provides opportunities to relax and exercise for all ages.
A host of eateries throughout Balwyn and its surrounding suburbs deliver immaculate culinary experiences for every time of the day while its coveted shopping and retail experience eliminates any need to venture into the nearby city.
Balwyn’s Whitehorse Road offers a range of cultural establishments designed to entertain, including the iconic Place Cinema. Enjoy the latest movie release amongst heritage surrounds, before ending the night with a glass of wine in one of its sophisticated bars, brought to life during its recent reformation.
