Coming soon to Leederville, Locale is an innovative collection of 51 apartments that fosters the ultimate indoor/outdoor living experience.
Comprising one, two, three and four-bedroom configurations, Locale is situated at the iconic Carr Place – a quiet cul-de-sac far enough away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to Leederville’s best attractions.
Taking design cues from its semi-industrial location, House Business Group Managing Director Tom House said Locale was a contemporary interpretation of Leederville’s historic architectural character.
“Current day Leederville is strongly defined by its industrial heritage and post-war European migration, which was instrumental in changing the architectural landscape of the area,” he said.
“Brickwork, concrete, terrazzo and arches were all features that were incorporated into new buildings – styles and memories from what was left behind.
“This new project reinterprets these ideas and adapts them to the current day, which makes it resonate with the culture and energy of modern Leederville.”
Well suited to the busy professional or the modern downsizer, Mr House said the apartments were an ideal price alternative to buying a house in Leederville.
“Many of the enquiries we’ve had so far have been younger, professional couples,” he said.
“We’ve also seen interest from older downsizers who are searching for a quality building to relocate into.”
Forget stuffy inner-city apartments, Locale has a focus on indoor and outdoor connectivity.
“Each apartment has been afforded a large landscaped terrace, flowing out from the open-plan living area.”
Framed by delicate foliage, the curated outdoor spaces offer sweeping views of the city skyline and surrounding tree canopies.
“The apartments are all designed to make the most of their orientations by either taking in the warm northern sunshine or relishing in the views of the city skyline,” Mr House said.
Headlining modern industrial interiors, the apartments reflect a place of peace with the choice of three stylish colour schemes, each adorned in a palette of sophisticated yet subtle finishes and illuminated by an abundance of natural light through floor-to-ceiling windows.
All apartments flow across an open-plan living, dining and kitchen space, with the latter boasting striking marble surfaces, quality European appliances and cleverly integrated storage.
Each master bedroom features plush woollen carpets, generous storage, private terrace access and a luxurious ensuite to carry out everyday ablutions.
Along with plenty of living space inside each apartment, Mr House said the amenities deck on level five was sure to bring the Locale community together.
“The amenities deck on level five has a huge outdoor living, barbecue and sitting area that looks straight out over the city,” he said.
“The deck will cultivate a vibrant community atmosphere where residents can relax and enjoy a glass of wine with their new neighbours.”
What rests outside the lavish complex is just as enticing – a short walk from new Leederville developments such as Electric Lane.
“I think that’s why the young professionals are so drawn to Locale,” Mr House said. “It’s easily connected to the city, they don’t have to drive, on the way home from work they can stop into Leederville and pick up dinner.
“Location wise it has that walkability and it’s so easy to get to work through the transport nodes.
“Leederville really mimics Melbourne’s lifestyle with all the bars, restaurants and gritty fabric.”
