Boutique bayside homes with bespoke floor plans brought to life by Skelton

The team behind the immaculately designed and delivered Avenue Townhomes in Brighton East have again come together to deliver a coveted collection of luxury apartments at an enviable address and attractive price. Renowned local developer Skelton has again joined forces with celebrated builder Brompton Construction and architect Travis Walton to deliver Awaken – Brighton.

From the project’s announcement, Awaken has experienced an exceptionally high level of interest from owner occupiers covering all demographics. Michael Skelton, Managing Director of Skelton comments, “we had not seen this level of enquiry on projects since 2017. Awaken is uniquely positioned in a beautiful tree-lined laneway-style street near to the action but secluded in a coveted location that ensures privacy, peace and security.”

Over the years, Skelton has earned a reputation within the industry for delivering projects with extensively detailed design and quality materials that stand the test of time. These development principles, together with the craftsmanship of Brompton Construction is the perfect combination to create these incomparable, high-end homes at Awaken at an achievable price point. Three bedroom luxury apartments start at $1.295m – considering the style and quality of the spaces, this has been an enormous drawcard for many purchasers.

When asked about how the apartments are being offered at such an achievable price, Michael Skelton explained, “we worked very closely with the design team to create efficient use of space and the builder to source high quality materials locally. Awaken apartments feature floor plans that have been carefully designed to maximise the available space and present them not only as spacious rooms but also as truly usable and practical in day-to-day living. This approach has allowed us to keep costs lower than expected for the Brighton area.”

Awaken marks the second project delivered by Skelton and Brompton Construction in Melbourne’s bayside area. We asked why this relationship has worked so well; “both companies’ core values are aligned. Delivering exceptional value through innovative approaches and teamwork; high quality design and always staying focused on the longevity of our projects. We both want our projects to remain timeless in design and enduring in quality,” says Michael Skelton.

The exclusive development features only 13 apartments to offer a true community feel for residents; encouraging chance meetings with neighbours and building relationships across communal areas. The homes are also enhanced with a carefully curated choice in materiality for style and longevity across all spaces. “We’ve thought through every detail in Awaken, from the species and layering of plants to the precise positioning of civil pipes – which may not sound exciting, but without this level of care, projects often fall short on delivering their landscape goals,” explains Michael.

Early purchasers will also have the opportunity to tailor bespoke floor plans, joinery, fittings and fixtures; offering a heightened level of customisation to enhance liveability. “Purchasers can choose beyond the colour scheme options for stone, joinery and floorboards at Awaken. We understand that no two lifestyles are alike so we are offering purchasers the option to tailor their floor plans to suit their individual needs therefore enhancing how they will be using their new homes,” says Michael.

Demolition is starting early April with construction commencing immediately after. For purchasers looking to truly tailor their new home at Awaken – featuring joinery, materiality and a floor plan built around their needs – the time to enquire is now.
