It’d be rude not to.
This editorial arrives as a new announcement for our Baller family, and showcases a pad fit for the bachelor of all bachelors. Not the television red rose type, but the smooth, whiskey-drinking, door-holding gentleman of 2021. Since the Original Ballers was born to motivate individuals to strive for the best life they can live, the ‘baller’ life, we thought it best to bring a new initiative forward for all our fans. Baller Homes will showcase the best properties from Melbourne to Los Angeles, Monaco to Sydney. It’s an open window into the luxury property market, taking you inside the best homes in the world and in Australia.
Baller homes is a way to channel your inner passion for property, design and dream homes. We may take you to a two-acre property on the Mornington Peninsula, or we’ll delve into penthouse suites in Melbourne’s CBD, where the city lights serve as your mood lighting on a Friday night. It’s all about manifesting your dream home, and we are here to help facilitate that process.
This week we visit one of the more revered developments in Melbourne’s East. The Capitol Grand is a show-stopping, exclusive building housing Melbourne’s elite. Capitol Grand has been regarded as one of Melbourne’s first ‘luxury developments’, and there’s no wonder why. Should you take the lift to the ground floor—you’ll find Dior at your fingertips. Walking in number 1 of 450 Almeida Crescent you’re hit with breathtaking views stretching from Brighton and Port Phillip Bay to the Dandenong Ranges in the east. Besides the fact, the apartment is in a prime position—Chapel Street, South Yarra—the apartment itself boasts a critically acclaimed design from Bates Smart.
The apartment is set amongst two split wings, one is devoted to the main suite, and the second offers owners the flexibility to use two further bedrooms or a bedroom/study. Opulent dining areas ensure entertaining is front and centre, while floor-to-ceiling windows maximise natural light by day and sweeping night views by night. The apartment is a perfect entertaining pad for drinks before dinner. Facing the living and dining areas, owners and guests will find a sophisticated built-in bar with a generous back-lit, textured bookcase in the open library area. Plush carpet and opulent en-suites bolster the apartment’s luxurious personality, while a substantial butler’s pantry makes catering for guests a personal experience. We won’t stop there; even the bathrooms deliver the ultimate baller experience with bathroom glass walls that become opaque at the touch of a button, underfloor heating, bespoke storage and a privately enclosed, remote-controlled six-car garage within the tower’s basement. Bobby Axelrod much? If that doesn’t cut it for you, this will.
Kay & Burton’s Andrew Sahhar further signified why homeowners of this lux property would make the most of the building’s offerings. Owners will enjoy access to the exclusive Azure Club. Residents who have access to the Azure Club will enjoy a six-star pool and spa offering, coupled with a private gym and dining/lounge area. Residents may also use the personalized 24-hour Concierge service, including valet car parking and the building’s many luxury facilities from the library to cinema, car wash, international retail stores and Omnia, the elegant neighbourhood bistro and bar on the corner of Chapel Street and Toorak Road.
