1/4 Montclair Avenue Brighton
Five refined homes, an articulated façade and generous landscaping comprise Highclair House – a rare, new opportunity in one of Melbourne’s most iconic Bayside suburbs.
Home 1 is a spacious, light filled, ground floor 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom property with 2 car spaces in the secure basement garage.
Homes are designed to maximise privacy and foster a lighter way of life. Individual entries and abundant plant-life provide seclusion and calm, while interiors and outdoor areas are cleverly connected, making homes ideal for entertaining. The single-level design lets ample natural light and fresh air into each dwelling, courtesy of the building’s three generous frontages.
Highclair House interiors are warm and refined, with layouts that emphasise an open, social feel that is ideal for entertaining guests. Whether it be a family event, birthday celebration or dinner party, the consideration given to the interiors ensures that hosting is a simple pleasure.
The material palette complements the muted tones used throughout, effecting a sense of sophistication and calm, while light and shade is balanced in each area of the dwelling according to function and mood.
Connectivity to outdoor space is prioritised across rooms via expansive double doors leading to abundant fresh air and sunshine. Kitchens are defined by high-quality joinery finished with timber and stone. Premium fixtures, fittings and appliances are integrated into the joinery, resulting in a seamless, unobtrusive and aesthetically pleasing design.
Intimate and distinguished, the living areas feature a gas fireplace built into low joinery finished in stone, while floors comprise premium timber boards applied consistently to the kitchen, dining areas and halls. Bathrooms are fitted with modern fixtures and materials of the highest quality, while bedrooms feature generous ensuites to ensure comfort and privacy.
Robust yet beautiful, the materials that define Highclair House were chosen to complement the urban locale, age beautifully and support the high-level design. The façade is articulated with brickwork ‘bookends’ forming the front and rear, alongside smooth, rendered masonry. Tall openings punctuate the building’s contemporary yet sensitive form, while ample landscaping ensures that each home is private and tranquil– a refuge from the chaos of urban living.
Planter-boxes and abundant greenery, created by celebrity designer, John Patrick Landscape Architects, have been incorporated into the façade to soften the design. A palette of shrubs, ground covers and climbing plants – including ‘Little Jess’ lilies, Chinese Star Jasmine climbers and Capital Pear trees – completes the generous garden crowned by large and mature trees. The muted colour palette further complements the building’s urban context and provides a tonally sensitive backdrop – a pleasing contrast to the lush, spilling greenery found throughout.
The central locale ensures residents are a short stroll from Brighton’s best restaurants, bars and shopping destinations, while its proximity to North Brighton Station provides easy access to world-class dining, entertainment, sporting events and Melbourne’s CBD.
Montclair Avenue is a short walk to the suburb’s best dining and entertainment spots, including Palace Cinema, Hotel Brighton and much-loved restaurant and bar Mr and Mrs P. With a vibrant offering of retail and cultural fare just a short stroll from the residence, home-owners need never look for a parking space again. A three-minute walk from home, North Brighton Station offers easy access to the CBD and Greater Melbourne.
Subtle and sophisticated, Highclair House is a compelling addition to Montclair Avenue and a strong contribution to Brighton’s charming streetscape.
