The best of the best – location, design and finishes-await at Heyington’s garden apartments.


High-end home buyers seeking luxury, tranquillity and convenience in an exclusive precinct need look no further.

Nearing completion, Heyington’s 12 garden residences offer a rare combination of space, outlooks, peace, privacy and proximity – all bywords for luxury living in 2022.

Ideally situated, these three­ bedroom residences are moments from Toorak village on one of the blue-chip district’s most sought-after streets, riverside Heyington Place.

On foot, it’s just two minutes to Heyington train station, with an easy 11-minute commute in and out of the city. A four-minute walk takes you to elite schools St Catherine’s and St Kevin’s College.

After considering the requirements of premium home buyers, developer Sterling Global worked with Carr Design Group and Acre Landscape Architecture to design homes that offer the character, features and space of gracious traditional houses. Kay & Burton projects director Damon Krongold says the resulting residences are exceptionally well­ proportioned and intelligently designed for living and entertaining.

“Empty-nesters, returning expats and busy professionals have fallen in love with Heyington,” he says.

“They understand the importance of living well.” Krongold says the roomy layouts give residents an abundance of space.

An extra-large ground-floor garden residence is available, as are two penthouses and several mid-level homes. Interiors range from 166 square metres up to 323 square metres; prices start at $3.295 million and rise to $5.9 million for the largest penthouse. Purchasers have the advantage of inspecting the built residences by private appointment.

“Heyington represents an outstanding opportunity for home buyers to act swiftly to take advantage of a rare opportunity,” Krongold says. “Furthermore, buyers can move into what is one of Melbourne’s most elite addresses from April.”

Portuguese limestone finishes the four-storey building’s classic facade. A three-metre setback from the street and meticulously curated, wrap­ around gardens provide privacy and seclusion for ground-floor homes.

Invisible from the street, the two penthouses on level three are wrapped in glazing to optimise sweeping views across the eastern suburbs and the city skyline.

Each of the 12 residences has high ceilings and two to three aspects, maximising outlooks, natural light and fresh air.

With en suite bedrooms, multiple living zones, fireplaces, powder rooms and separate laundries and sculleries, the layouts more closely resemble high-end traditional houses than apartments.

The largest residences feature a flexible living space for a formal lounge, library or den.

The single-level basement includes two private three-car garages for the penthouses, two to three on-ground car spaces for the other residences and large storerooms.
