Hartwood is situated within the eastern neighbourhood of Kew, a suburb which exemplifies Melbourne’s intense livability. Kew Village is home to a close-knit community offering exemplary eateries and retailers. Morning coffee needs can be seen to by a whole host of locally owned cafés, while such independent grocery stores as Toscano’s and Leo’s are on hand for gourmet produce.
The innermost section of a tree is known as the “heartwood”, and is characterised by its natural strength and innate durability. These qualities are echoed in the design of Hartwood, a superior collection of homes destined to become one of the most distinguished and indelible addresses in Melbourne. Situated within the eminent neighbourhood of Kew, which itself embodies enduring class, Hartwood has been crafted specifically for those who value timeless style and unparalleled
quality. With design lead by acclaimed studio Cera Stribley Architects, these modern yet classically inspired homes represent a lifestyle that is at once seductive yet long-lasting.
Open-plan living areas create unity and maximise space within each Hartwood residence. Floor-to-ceiling windows are paired with sliding glass doors to invite natural light inside, while also seamlessly connecting residents to the outside world. Hartwood residents have the opportunity to personalise their kitchen with two layouts and alternate light and dark colour schemes. The European-style kitchen is a refined and modern offering, with a top of the line downdraft rangehood using technology to reverse the air intake and maximise efficiency, giving the kitchen an abundance of storage space and concealed appliances for a sleek clean finish. The Traditional-style layout provides a classic feel and versatility with generous work spaces and storage areas. Limestone, granite and timber accentuate the quality and natural aesthetic of each kitchen.
