Unique, trend-setting townhouses

Apartments & Developments

22 April 2024



In a market traditionally dominated by detached homes or high-rise apartments, the emergence of luxury townhouse developments has been nothing short of a game-changer.


Three of the most captivating and trend-setting townhouse projects across the country, now selling and under construction, each weaves its own style and characteristic – be it through a boutique and exclusive collection, a waterfront address, or a masterplanned community design.


Unique in their own ways, we explore the trends that set these developments apart from others in the market and the exceptional experiences they offer the discerning homeowner – you. 


On a leafy urban street in beachside Hampton, Hampton Ltd comprises both apartments and townhouses. Its overall offering is boutique, with just 23 residences across its three buildings. Yet, its townhouse offering is truly exclusive, presenting just three townhomes.


Hampton Ltd is developed by award-winning Brisbane-based developer Spyre Group and beautifully designed by internationally renowned Studio Brent Lee. We spoke to Kent Pinel, Spyre Group’s Design Director, to delve into these homes that celebrate the idea of a ‘personal sanctuary.’


“These homes offer a rare level of exclusivity, reserved for only a discerning few seeking an aspirational lifestyle,” Kent said to AD.


“At Hampton Ltd, each four-storey townhome offers individual access through a private street entrance, as well as a private and secure basement garage.


“Spaciously designed and sophisticated, they feature three oversized bedrooms, with the master suite commanding an entire level, creating a secluded retreat and boasting an oversized walk-in-robe and luxurious ensuite with a free-standing solid surface bath.


“The expansive living and dining areas are afforded an abundance of natural light.


“Perfect for entertaining, separate living zones offer family members different breakout zones and flexibility.


“All living areas orientate towards terraces and natural light, creating an effortless flow between indoor and outdoor moments.


“Floor-to-ceiling glazing offers immediate connection to landscaped greenery.


“Every detail is inviting — a design statement of comfort and style.”


Expansive in size, these townhomes evoke space as luxury. Intuitively designed by the experts at Studio Brent Lee, each residence comes with luxurious fixtures and fittings that set this collection apart.


“Undoubtedly a show-stopper, the wine cellar boasts a full wall of built-in wine racking ready to store even the most generous collection of wine,” said Kent.


“Even in this private space, every care has been taken to ensure it is not only functional but also aesthetically alluring using beautiful, robust materials, soft lighting, and timeless finishes which complement the rest of the townhome.”


Hampton Ltd’s townhouses boast private lifts, oversized ceiling heights, a sculptural kitchen island bench crafted from Vanilish Pearl marble, floor-to-ceiling glazing, oversized walk-in robes in the master suite, a study nook at the top level, and more.


Hampton Ltd’s highly curated design comes from Spyre Group’s observation of townhouse trends and demands across Melbourne.


“Particularly for Melbourne townhomes, we are noticing an increased importance on luxury offerings, such as appliances, finishes, private lifts, etc.,” said Kent.


“These residences are about generosity and grandeur, a very rare scale of luxurious lifestyle and appointments.


“They are no longer a downsize compromise for those priced out of buying a house; rather, Hampton Ltd is a boutique, low maintenance lifestyle upgrade to a house that provides curated spaces and elevated design inclusions.”


He continued, “Celebrating the idea of ‘personal sanctuary’, the three townhomes are genuinely rare — particularly for the highly desirable Hampton and greater Bayside area.


“This is where people can reward themselves, within an idyllic setting and a masterfully crafted residence.


“The architecture, inspired by its surrounds, blends mid-century modernism with minimalist design.


“Subtle sophistication — a canvas for which only a lucky few can curate as their ultimate abode.”


Demolition has commenced on site of Hampton Ltd, with the exclusive townhomes still available.
