A glass penthouse amongst the clouds: Australia’s slimmest tower releases luxury offering

A rare opportunity exists to purchase one of three exquisite penthouses in Australia’s slimmest tower Collins House, offering a range of breathtaking unparalleled views over the Melbourne Skyline, the Yarra River and towards Port Phillip Bay.

Situated on one of the most prestigious and highly-coveted addresses in the country, Collins Street, Golden Age Group’s latest award-winning project has cemented itself as the fourth slimmest tower in the world and is home to 259 luxury residences.

Spanning across 60 floors, the mixture of expansive multi-level lofts and single-level apartments each feature floor to ceiling windows, expertly crafted by Bates Smart.

Located on Level 56, the three-bedroom penthouse is the true jewel in the crown with the east side of the floor plate located within the cantilevered portion of the building, creating a living space that juts out from the tower, offering a fly-like experience amongst the clouds.

Boasting a total area of 260sqm across two floors, the penthouse features Royal Oak Herringbone flooring that spans throughout the kitchen and living spaces – a pattern that resonates with the external facade tower design and continues through the tiling in the bathrooms.

Occupying the most prominent section of the floor plan, the kitchen is filled with warm natural light and a splashback clad in elegant Italian stone, designed to bring a natural feel to the space while also some movement through contoured lines.

Bates Smart Associate Carlos Lara said the penthouse interiors have been conceived to create the ultimate urban living experience with elegant lines and intricate attention to detail.

“Throughout the design process we envisioned the resident to feel a part of the city; entwined in the surrounding urban context by connecting Melbourne’s skyline at every possible occasion.

“We sought to create axes of view throughout the penthouse and this formed the key concept of positioning living spaces closer to the view, while places of concentration and privacy – such as the kitchen, dining or office – are positioned further from the view while still holding on to that connection through vignettes of the city,” said Carlos.

With a one-of-a-kind location and predominant height over neighbouring developments, residents will enjoy unencumbered views of iconic Melbourne landmarks such as the Royal Botanical Gardens, Royal Park, the MCG, Yarra River, the Melbourne Zoo and Flemington Racecourse and enjoy incomparable views of Melbourne’s spectacular New Years Eve fireworks.

Two three-bedroom plus study sub-penthouses on Level 54 are also available and with only two residences per floor, offer either sweeping views over the majestic Yarra River and Port Phillip bay views or northern city views. The two sub-penthouses range in size from 212sqm to 224sqm and are priced from $3.5 million to $3.8 million respectively.

Residents will also have access to the opulent St. James Club on Level 27, providing residents access to a private dining room and lounge, state-of-the-art gym, and theatre, while Collins Terrace – located on level three – allows residents to enjoy  tranquil afternoons and evenings entertaining guests from the sumptuous open-air lounge and bar, or cooking up a storm in the gourmet chef’s kitchen.

Golden Age Group Sales and Marketing Director Ms. Dandan Zhao said Collins House has been incredibly successful in terms of sales, with all apartments – aside from the newly released penthouses – sold and settled successfully.

“There is a lot of uncertainty in the market currently but for those with a stable income, there has never been a better time to buy, particularly if the right product comes along,” she said.

In line with current regulations, Golden Age Group is offering private one-on-one inspections as well as virtual tours. The Collins House penthouse is priced from $4.98 million. Please contact us on 0499 688 988 for your exclusive tour.
