selling —350 Clarke Street, Northcote
350 Clarke Street, Northcote; 14, light-filled homes featuring communal gardens and its very own cafe. The design philosophy behind the project is simple: It’s the clever, carefully considered details that make truly livable homes. The natural light, ceiling height and natural air flow. The acoustics, low maintenance materials and abundant storage spaces. The large windows and the well-crafted furniture you sit on to gaze out of them.
To orchestrate all of these touches into stylish, comfortable living spaces, Kalex drew on their own extensive experience and collaborated with some of Melbourne’s best designers, gardeners and craftspeople.
The bigger picture looks pretty good too. 350 Clarke Street sits in the inner pocket of bustling Northcote, putting you on the doorstep of parklands and a vibrant, creative community.
