Como Terraces / Riverside South Yarra
Just launched by award-winning developers Cbus Property and Sterling Global, this development is a private, elevated enclave of 39 residences tiering up the north face of Como Hill by the Yarra River.
Designed by renowned architects Carr to blend perfectly with its riverside setting, Como Terraces comprises four two-bedroom residences, 34 three-bedroom residences and one four-bedroom residence. They are spread across eight individual buildings on the former site of Saint Cloud, once South Yarra’s largest private land holding.
Envisioned as secluded sanctuaries, each residence is oriented for privacy and to maximise views of the extensive landscaping, the Yarra
and city skyline beyond.
More than half of the 7000-square-metre terraced site is dedicated to curated botanical gardens. A landscaped grand central stairway, dubbed the Spanish Steps, leads from the entrance to a collection of shared spaces and on to meadow-style gardens at the summit.
Interiors feature elegant European oak and natural stone schemes with large stone kitchen islands and Swiss-made V-ZUG appliances; layouts can include integrated fireplaces, baths, built-in bars, separate laundries and home offices. Ground level residences benefit from lush private gardens and some elevated terraces have city skyline views.
The grand central stairway leads residents to a light-filled piazza, lounge and private dining room seating 20 guests, and continues to a communal garden at the site’s summit. Concierge services include laundry, dog walking, key services, car detailing, floristry, private chefs and car services. A porte cochere will protect pick-ups and drop-offs.
Directly opposite the Yarra River and the Main Yarra Trail, a three-minute walk from Como Park and 3.8 kilometres from the CBD. Also nearby: Chapel Street, Toorak Road, South Yarra Station, Melbourne High, St Catherine’s and Melbourne Girls’ Grammar.
