Life is a collection of precious moments. Discover exceptional contemporary living with soul. Come home to lavish one, two and three bedroom homes, nestled within the verdant embrace of extensive natural surroundings in the tranquil enclave of leafy Ormond. An exceptional collection of 24 homes offers a unique opportunity for you to customise the fundamental nature of your living spaces to an extraordinary degree. Orientate vertically or horizontally within the building or combine two homes to create the footprint you’re looking for. k20’s team of architects and interior designers are ready to craft joinery or even move a bathroom to suit your individual ‘nest’. The image of a bowerbird, feathering its own nest, is often used to describe the proud homeowner of the detached house in the suburbs. However, as the concept of home has ‘morphed’ to include apartment living, one’s nest is composed of a variety of ‘twigs’. Bowerbird, the concept of k20 Architecture, will provide a new nest for those looking for a new home in Ormond. A stone’s throw from North Road, its strip shopping centre and train station, Bowerbird will sit comfortably between a house, townhouse and a spacious apartment. Ormond invites
you to experience fantastic family living – balancing the breathing space of extensive parklands with the concentrated amenity of a neighbourhood brimming with cafes, shops, great schools and brilliant public transport. A Veil of Privacy – Bowerbird Life’s elegant street presence exhibits authentic, natural materiality anchored in the landscape, its unobtrusive character defined by a palisade of timber battens, which create a ‘veil’ for both light and privacy. These operable timber screens envelop the deep terraces of Bowerbird Life’s first floor homes and provide an architectural gesture towards the generous porches of the neighbourhood bungalows. Further emphasising the indoor/outdoor flexibility of these private spaces, large sliding doors open up interior spaces to gentle striated light and fresh air. Beneath the screened upper levels, ground floor homes echo the vertical cadences with steel ‘picket fences’ surrounding richly planted gardens. A lantern-style roof, with highlight celestial windows, releases warmer air for those living on the top floor. Education Excellence – Give your family the very best start. Ormond’s selection of education institutions within walking distance is among the finest and most accessible in Melbourne. Choose from a dozen different primary schools, from the historic St Kevin’s Parish School to the highly regarded Melbourne Montessori School. Older students can take advantage of proximity to the select McKinnon Secondary College, Glen Eira Secondary, or Kilvington Grammar just down the street. Monash University’s Caulfield campus is only two train stations away. Public transport could not be easier, safer or more convenient for everyone in the family. The recently redeveloped Ormond Railway Station is just a minute’s walk away, taking you to Flinders Street in under 25 minutes. Multiple bus routes run along North, Grange, Koornang and Leila Roads, providing easy transport in every direction to locations including Elwood and Chadstone Shopping Centre. It’s easy to love living local. Day and night, Ormond and the nearby surrounds offer plenty to do, browse through, or relax in and share a drink at the end of the day.

Relax in a tranquil sanctuary, bathed in natural light, looking out to treetops or lush garden surroundings through large floor-to-ceiling windows.
