The word home can inspire so many different things for so many different people, however one constant is that it should represent a complete picture of serenity, somewhere that allows you to relax and immerse yourself in the surroundings while enjoying an elevated sense of well being and comfort.
The Malton encapsulates everything that a home should be. It is a new prestigious residential development that resides in a tranquil and leafy haven. Seemingly secluded from the bustling centre, the development is only a short stroll away from Beecroft Village, just 20km north of Sydney, where residents can enjoy boutiques, bookstores, restaurants, cafes and even a local golf course, tennis courts and parklands.
Designed by renowned PBD Architects in collaboration with award-winning property developers Central Element, the design philosophy of The Malton revolves around an uncompromising commitment to luxury and rigorous standards of excellence. Comprising of a collection of ten beautifully designed homes in one of the areas most coveted streets, Central Element have created a contemporary yet classic development that has wholly respected the heritage architectural features of the existing buildings on site, while offering an idyllic lifestyle and luxurious experiences.
Dean Chivas, Development Manager of Central Element explains, “We wanted to seek to ease the transition for our purchasers from their larger family home. Our mentality is that downsizing isn’t a compromise, but the next chapter. Downsizers look for high-quality, low-maintenance properties that they can lock up and leave while they travel the world or to visit family – and The Malton offers that at a superior level.”
The development is an inspired combination of modern, well-appointed interiors and the restoration of historical façades of the site’s two existing buildings. The new homes are heavily influenced by the original heritage architecture – making sure to complement the existing buildings perfectly through height, form, materials and style. One of the original buildings located on the site was a late 1930’s home designed by C. Bruce Dellit, who also designed the iconic Anzac War Memorial in Hyde Park, Sydney. The other existing building was a federation style home that was built in 1914. With an experienced team that comprised of Heritage Consultant, Urbis along with Structural Engineers BG&E, the complex preservation of the existing buildings resulted in tremendous success and a seamless architectural design blending the old and the new.
Chivas says, “The Malton’s timeless design draws inspiration from its heritage past. We like to say it’s inspired by the past but designed for the future. The Malton manages to strike a balance between old and new, contributing to the history of the area while providing residents everything they need to lead a contemporary, laid-back lifestyle.”
Within the interiors, every detail has been considered, with the quality being unsurpassed and a true point of difference, from the Gaggenau appliances, wine cellar and marble benches, right down to the statement classic skirting boards and architraves. Featuring a classic colour scheme, elegant timber floors and beautifully high ceilings, this all combines to achieve a sense of light-filled elegance throughout.
As the owners have many options to personalise the space, they can truly capture the lifestyle they’ve always wanted to live. For those who appreciate an epicurean culture and want to enjoy exploring gourmet delights to their hearts content, they will find that the professional-grade Gaggenau kitchen appliances offer everything they could dream of. The Malton provides residents with the height of luxury throughout the interiors and Chivas explains why Gaggenau was selected for the premium appliances, “At Central Element, we have rigorous standards of quality. In the residential space, we typically sell high-end apartments to discerning owner-occupiers; they expect the best and they are creatures of comfort, wanting what they are used to. They expect kitchens to be the same quality to that of the kitchen they have had in their $3m+ homes. Therefore, we specified Gaggenau as an option.”
The elegantly appointed kitchens exude a sophisticated atmosphere that is both welcoming and inspiring with oak timber floorboards paired beautifully with natural elba stone that is featured on the splashback and benchtops.
Complementing the interior aesthetic is the Gaggenau 200 series oven and microwave with full surface grill, both in the striking Gaggenau metallic finish, along with the 200 series 90cm gas cooktop, providing the latest cooking technology and precision in a sleek design that even professional chefs will appreciate.
For those who are entering the next chapter of their lives, moving out of a large family home and downsizing into something smaller, they can rest assured that the luxurious lifestyle they have become accustomed to will not only continue, but thrive in a place like The Malton, Beecroft. The superb quality of everything both inside and out is a testament to the incredible vision of both the architect and Central Element, creating a forever home that will be enjoyed for many years to come.
