Corner of Pelham Court and Wattletree Road

The Design

Pelham presents Armadale’s best new address – a series of 20 exclusive residences sculpted by a collection of Melbourne’s greatest design and property development minds. Buxton Group, Roulston, Ewert Leaf and Jack Merlo have collaborated to bring this sensational project to life.

Created to honour and complement Armadale as a suburb, Pelham introduces timeless shapes to Wattletree Road. Beyond a sophisticated facade are homes ready to be coloured with your fondest memories, all while providing brilliant opportunities to create new ones. New-age aristocracy awaits you.

Pelham’s residences exemplify modern living in its highest form. Landscaping, architecture and interior design work harmoniously, largely due to a cohesive and unrivalled project team.

Inspired by the works of Frank Lloyd Wright, Pelham’s facade is crafted to appear like floating plains, structurally sound and centred on linear design. A durable, natural and modern collection of materials forms the exterior, which features details including recessed lines in the concrete elements, combining with charcoal and timber structures to create a visually outstanding and cohesive building.

One of the best parts of Pelham is how generous the homes are – spaces are extremely liveable and functional in their approach.”

Simone MacGinley, Associate Director at Ewert Leaf.

The Interiors

Pelham’s interior spaces are founded on a neutral palette, allowing future residents to furbish the homes with their own precious pieces. Natural materials including timber chevron flooring and marble benchtops produce an opulent base for a home of luxurious comfort.

The Homes

Pelham’s residences are touched with bespoke elements to create an unrivalled standard of liveability. With future residents at the forefront of the design process, each component, from joinery, to layout, to lighting, is considered to the highest degree. Open plan living spaces connect with expansive terraces that present and promote opportunities for occupants to engage with the street, while giving way to views of the heritage landmarks and topiaries that give Armadale its charming and distinguished name.

“Armadale is famous for its beautifully established gardens and streetscapes – we've really tried to reference that in Pelham, using many of the native species found in the area.”

The Kitchen

Kitchens are equipped for all types of culinary pursuits – Signorino marble makes up the generous benchtops, while butler’s pantries in the three bedroom residences allow epicureans to stock up on their favourite goods and ingredients. Powered by Miele and Fisher & Paykel appliances, Pelham’s kitchens are the perfect environments to bring delectable creations to life. Robust materials create sophisticatedly minimal settings, allowing the focus to remain on the kitchen’s functionality.

Bedroom & Bathroom

A symphony of luxurious finishes work in harmony to create elegant bathroom settings – brushed nickel tapware complements the tones of grey within the terrazzo tiles and veins in the marble benchtops. A freestanding bath centres the space, while a custom-designed recessed vanity unit is found opposite it, designed with bevelled edge detailing. Bedrooms that feature 100% wool carpeting, walk-in robes, and an amazing amount of natural light unite with bathrooms and ensuites to form homes where retreat and rejuvenation are easily found.
