Responding to the project’s architecture, Linear’s interiors share similar themes of orthogonal elements and monochromic tones throughout the homes’ varied settings. This is found at the heart of the residence—the open plan kitchen and living setting. The streamlined nature of the residences allows the creation of clean vistas, including the view from the kitchen and dining setting out to the courtyard area.

The consideration of custom joinery introduces residences of unrivalled spatial amenity in multi-residential products currently in Glen Iris. Alongside a fireplace in the living area, the setting includes a moveable timber screen that reveals and conceals the television, meaning residences can accommodate to a range of occasions, whether it’s getting some friends together to watch the Australian Open or AFL, or a more formal dinner party sans digital distractions.

Capitalising on the power of monolithic elements” is how director of architecture at Carr Design Group, Chris McCue, describes the firm’s use of stone in residential projects. A marble island bench centres the kitchen area, with a niche allowing for stools to be placed and as a result increasing the communal engagement of residents within the homes, while visually emulating the way a piece of natural stone comes from the earth.

A monochromatic palette flows throughout the residences, relying on soft Carrara marble, timber joinery and elegantly dark window framing. Timber also sets the tone for the grand master bedrooms, from the floorboards to the joinery. A hob wall shelf above the bed and generous wardrobe space creates settings of maximum comfort.

Dining and shopping

Confidently holding its reign as one of Melbourne’s most abundant areas, the City of Stonnington provides dining and shopping luxuries in equal measure. High Street, Armadale is a pleasure to peruse through for hunters, gatherers, and luxury fashion lovers alike. From labels that parade the runways in Australia and overseas, a series of art and antique galleries, homewares stores, beauticians and a bounty of bridal boutiques – there is no category left untouched on High Street. Speckled among these offerings and extending throughout Malvern and Glenferrie Roads are cafes and restaurants ideal for fuelling up after a morning of afternoon session of retail therapy.

Around the corner from the residences on nearby Malvern Road is Milton Wine Bar, a bottle store by day, with walls lined from the floor to almost the ceiling with curated drops from around the globe. On Friday and Saturday nights, it transforms as locals gather here to catch up with friends, and meet new like minds around the communal table that centres the space.

Head more towards Central Park and you’ll come across not one but two more drinking holes – Tom Pockett Cellars and Riserva. Tom Pockett houses the best of current Australian grape talent, as well as a selection of craft beers if you’d rather something else to drink. If you happen to wine and dine in on a Friday night you’ll also be treated to the live music of local talent.

Riserva is found on Wattletree Road. Led by Italian epicureans Frank Ciorciari and Gian Chiaravalle, it’s an institution that has European food and wine at its core. If you’d like to know which wine goes with your Campari-cured salmon or spaghetti vongole, just ask.

Leading on with the Italian influence on the area is Sagra – all-encompassing fine food venue on Glenferrie Road. Sagra serves as not only a restaurant downstairs but also a pizza eatery on level one, a food store, and a bar – catering to culinary connoisseurs on a grand scale.

If it’s just bottles to take home you’re after, with a side of unrivalled expertise, head to Armadale Cellars. Housed in a stunning High Street heritage building, the store and sells boutique Australian wines and hard-to-find imports. Armadale Cellars’ passion transcends into courses and master classes held throughout the year.

42—Central Park

Parks and recreation

The historic gardens of Glen Iris have gracefully endured the decades and are respectfully maintained to continue serving as green havens for years to come. Close to the residences is Malvern Public Gardens, where wide paths weave among manicured arrangements of natural flora. Central Park is similarly striking, also featuring exercise equipment throughout the grounds and an oval where aspiring sports men and women, boys and girls, train and compete. You’ll also find Hedgeley Dene Gardens, whose verdant pockets make for ideal spots to relax and rejuvenate.

An icon of Melbourne heritage, The Gables has hosted weddings and soirees for over 100 years. In the last five years, The Gables has introduced British-style high teas to its repertoire for visitors to enjoy the restored mansion over beautifully catered, indulgent afternoons.

From the stained glass windows and open fireplaces, to the classic furnishings and period detailing, the incredible maintenance of this century-old residence is a fine way of honouring history, its charm set to hold strong through future generations.

Set upon an acre of land, encompassed by 100-year-old cypress trees, The Gables is truly a triumphant stature of Victorian period architecture in the distinctive Queen Anne style.

Constructed in 1902, renowned Queen Anne architectural proponents Ussher and Kemp aimed to celebrate Australian flora and fauna through the intricate plasterwork and leadlight. William Guilfoyl, who was also the master landscape architect of the Royal Botanic Gardens, designed The Gables’ landscaping which has gloriously retained its original hedge and grand cypress trees.

The elaborate residence comprises of 15 traditionally decorated rooms, featuring parquetry floors, 16-foot ceilings, glistening chandeliers and wide verandas that overlook the stunning gardens. A gazebo covered in roses is found in the gardens alongside a pond and fountain, and the tallest Norfolk Island pine in the area, which can be seen from the Rialto Tower.

Upon plates and within cups of fine China, in the estate’s formal front rooms, The Gables hosts high tea. Sandwiches, homemade pastries and scones with jam and cream are delicately placed on traditional tier stands while a delectable buffet of sweets is available at the front of the room. In the warmer months, high tea is also served on the veranda and in the garden.
