Port Melbourne, home to quiet, leafy streets and locals heading to the beach. But lately, with many of its older industrial architecture being repurposed or redeveloped for residential apartments, a fresh wave of properties are offering that vibrant bayside lifestyle.
Port One Eleven is a prime example, sitting just a block or two from the beachfront yet secluded enough to keep your Sunday mornings quiet.
The developer of these apartments is Garry Wilson, AFL Hall of Fame inductee and Brisbane Lion Hall of Fame Legend. Garry has been involved in residential developments on the Mornington Peninsular and together with wife Roslyn and De Jong Architects have created a series of one, two and three bedroom apartments that are fresh and contemporary. The Architects took care to ensure the street façade reflected the essence and energy of the neighbourhood.
Cleverly contrasting textures and tones, through materials such as concrete and steel, help balance the external character of the building with its surrounds. And in keeping with the scale of the street, this is no sprawling development, comprising only five floors of residences for a boutique feel.
Think of the beach and we think of light, air and the sea breeze. Internally, these apartments capture all of that. Interior designers, Emerald Pear have put their penchant for practicality and liveability to great effect with interior spaces that feel light and airy, decked out in warm, neutral tones with grey and black accents for a quiet and sophisticated backdrop you can easily add to.
We often talk about the importance of texture in a home, and textures certainly come to the fore throughout Port One Eleven, helping define these homes as something special. Combined with modern fixtures and Dekton Ultra Compact finishes, these interiors are minimalist yet inviting.
Large windows allow for perfect views where possible. Open plan living spaces are the perfect blank canvas for you to create your home the way you want it.
Many of us spend more time entertaining in the kitchen than cooking in it, yet Port One Eleven’s kitchen are elegantly design to be perfect for both. Top on our list of priorities always, storage is taken care of, with top quality appliances and lighting to set the mood.
Calmness is a virtue in any contemporary apartment, and the bathrooms here instil it effortlessly, thanks to those neutral tones again, the shear scale of tiles and the quality of the black finished taper and fixtures. A bath to soak in after a long day? Check. Large mirrors and spacious walk-in shower? Check too. This is luxurious form and function combined.
The best part of living bayside is the perfect combination of beach vibe and urban convenience. Just 350m from having the sand between your toes you also have a choice of vibrant Esplanade at hand. The CBD is a quick hop on the light rail.
There’s a reason the locals love walking, cycling, skating and every other fun form of getting around. Add the many cool coffee spots, cafes, pubs and bars and bayside life speaks for itself. Take a wander over to the thriving Bay Street shopping precinct for all your essentials or a catch up on the weekend.
Rich in history, Port Melbourne is another of Melbourne’s ever-changing lively suburbs and Port One Eleven will put you close to the best it has to offer.
