The Ballantyne - 1693 Malvern Road, Glen Iris
These 22 luxury townhouses, like many nearby homes, are surrounded by verdant gardens. The striking contemporary design by Peddle Thorp, spread across two separate buildings, includes many features found in individual detached homes; private outdoor terraces and balconies, fluid and interconnected living spaces and external screening to control the afternoon sunlight. Generous ceiling heights and large expanses of glass also make these spacious townhouses appear even larger in scale. Providing an alternative to those wanting to scale down from the family home and for those not quite ready to live in an apartment, The Ballantyne offers the best of both worlds; the comfort of the family home left behind, without any of the maintenance.
