Hitting the right note with downsizers

Armadale’s beautiful tree-lined streets, stylish architecture and privileged lifestyle make it one of Melbourne’s most aspirational suburbs.

Adelle, a luxurious four-level development of only nine house-sized apartments in prestigious Adelaide Street, is resonating strongly with sophisticated downsizers relocating from larger homes in the surrounding area. Three of the nine residences have already sold to downsizers from Toorak and Camberwell, and another two are under negotiation. Jellis Craig projects director Jarrod Farey says it’s little wonder that Adelle is resonating so strongly with downsizers. “Adelle’s appeal is obvious – every residence is a spacious three-bedroom home with generous outdoor space, three-metre ceiling heights, a private basement wine cellar and parking for two to three cars.”

Award-winning architects LSA and acclaimed landscape architect Jack Merlo collaborated on Adelle, creating an art deco-inspired building set in gracious garden surrounds with the aesthetics of a single residence. _ LIZ MCLACHLAN


Light, fresh spaces are sized to feel like a home, not an apartment. A natural, opulent suite of materials includes dark rich timber flooring, marbled porcelain benchtops and bronze tapware with highend VZug cooking appliances. Natural stone vanity units and statement mirrors feature in re.ned bathrooms.


Residences include an entrance foyer, butler’s pantry and laundry; main en suites have a double vanity and space for a freestanding bath; most include a flexiroom ideal as a bedroom or additional living space; and some include a study. A gas .replace can be integrated into living areas.
