The Finest Address in the Finest Suburb


Introduction

Within the Armadale domain, life is discernibly superior. This is apparent from the very moment one enters the suburb’s illustrious bounds. It’s a location where the streets sing with prestige and cultivation, where affluent heritage homes stake their claim along leafy boulevards, and where the very best of Melbourne culture resides. It’s the realm of verdant parks and famed restaurants, of innately stylish boutiques and immaculately dressed people. In the heart of it all exists a duet of exclusive residences, one gifted an idyllic garden, the other a grandiose penthouse. Inside and out, this pair is exemplary, from the meticulous architecture to the considered interior design and inspired landscaping. Welcome to No.1 Huntingtower, where home is reimagined.

An Exclusive Home


The Vision

Curated by the acclaimed minds at Christopher Doyle Architects, No.1 Huntingtower presents a duo of homes designed to exemplify grandeur. Poised on one of Melbourne’s most prestigious roads, the eloquent façade is an ode to timelessness, a notion that has come to define Armadale. An expression of classic materials forms an enduring aesthetic, harmonising with the surrounding streetscape whilst declaring a somewhat distinctive presence. Here, rendered masonry binds with elegant, anodised black windows, whilst traditional slate roofing shingles are reminiscent of the heritage homes dotted throughout the area. Lavish displays of greenery soften and ornament the stately façade, allowing the duet to coordinate with the iconically tree-lined Huntingtower Road.

An enchanting
haven awaits you.


Drawing inspiration from both traditional and contemporary landscape architecture – a marriage of old and new at the heart of these residences – the garden is as versatile a setting as it is elegant. Equipped for lively outdoor dinner parties, intimate wines on balmy evenings, or solo coffees perched on the idyllic bench seat, here is a place where every moment is tinged with greenery. Expansive yet entirely manageable, throw open the bi-fold doors on those warmer days and allow the garden to become a serene extension of the internal living area.

Presenting an
elevated way of life.


Raised from the hustle and bustle of the world below, there is an unmatched sense of prestige that accompanies a penthouse lifestyle, together with incomparable levels of privacy and serenity. The penthouse residents of No.1 Huntingtower are bestowed with glimpses of the city skyline, as well as sweeping views of the leafy and iconically beautiful Armadale streetscapes. Capitalising upon the abundance of natural light available at this elevated height, generous windows are awarded to the spacious living area, allowing the room to be kissed with resplendent warmth.

No.1 Huntingtower is an exclusive collection of just two residences that embodies the prestige of one of Melbourne’s most desired suburbs, Armadale. It is a unique interpretation of bespoke and timeless design excellence for a most desirable lifestyle. It is set near High Street and displays all of the key ingredients that are rare to find in apartment living.

The apartments themselves are defined by restrained elegance with flourishes of luxury. United by the combination of understated sophistication and meticulous attention to detail, open living and dining areas impress with considered touches throughout, seamlessly integrating with minimalist kitchens featuring marble bench tops, Miele appliances and out-of-site butler’s pantries. The open-plan living areas are bathed in natural light from expansive windows that seamlessly connect to a secluded outdoor haven. Decadent light-filled bathrooms deliver a calming experience with customised integrated joinery of limestone, marble and aged iron tapware.

Luxurious with French Oak floors – truly a lifestyle opportunity not to be missed.”

An uncompromising commitment to sophistication and luxury.


Crafted by the renowned Studio Griffiths, an unforgettable collection of rooms are appointed materials that age gracefully – imparting classic environments that surpass the fleetingness of trends. In every facet of the homes, there exists an unmistakeable balance, achieved through a delicate interplay of light and dark. White matt walls and neutral tones contrast with dark-stained timber veneer joinery and French Oak floors, creating a visually fulfilling aesthetic that holds an element of unity. Aspects of unique detailing also characterise these homes, ensuring wherever the eye rests, it’s treated to something exquisite.

Open living areas comprise the kitchens, dining and living rooms of No.1 Huntingtower, where expansive windows invite natural light to bathe arresting stone bench tops. These uplifting spaces are afforded seamless views to the outdoor terraces, bringing aspects of greenery into the home. Further embellishing the meticulous living areas are features of opulent convenience – lavishly ambient wine rooms, concealed butlers pantries and suave Miele appliances.

Rooms that redefine luxury, for moments of retreat each and every day.


Some spaces are crafted for practicality, others for indulgence. The bathrooms of No.1 Huntingtower are set up for both. Premium finishes veil the surfaces, and ensure routine tasks feel equally delightful as moments of pamper. Consistent with the kitchens, elegant grey stone surfaces assert an air of grandeur, paired with limestone joinery of the utmost quality. Accenting these sophisticated havens is aged iron tap ware, attesting to how sometimes, the smaller details complete a space. The bathrooms find their equal in the master bedrooms of No.1 Huntingtower, where plush carpets unite with warm textures for unyielding comfort when the time calls. Light-filled and splendidly oversized, it is here that residents are introduced to new heights of luxury and liveability.

Materiality of the highest calibre, enriching every corner of the home.


Purposefully selected for their beauty, quality and durability, No.1 Huntingtower’s cohesive palette of finishes is quite simply unrivalled. Stone surfaces are a common theme, each one sourced and appointed with meticulous care. A luxurious grey stone is featured across the kitchen bench tops and splash backs; a bold yet refined addition to the home. This elegant finish is also witnessed throughout several other spaces, including the master ensuites, studies, living areas and foyers, instating opulent surfaces that draw in the eye with their delicate detailing. The bedrooms are laid out on floors of plush carpet for the utmost underfoot softness and an added layer of textural interest.
