Prestige boutique townhouses – 28 Farmer Street, Richmond

Written by in Auction on March 15, 2018

Once the site of a tired Victorian cottage, 28 Farmer Street is now the location of a luxurious new multi-unit residential development. This exciting project, undertaken by local Richmond innovators Cadre Property Group, occupies a prime block on the corner of Farmer and Cutter Streets with additional access via the laneway at the rear.

Upon completion, the 330m2 site will house four premium terraces, each with its own street address and parking for one or two vehicles.

Construction has already commenced with TYCORP Constructions undertaking the build, with the dwellings due to be completed in around 12 months’ time. Each property will have a unique floorplan across three levels, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a powder room.

Agent Elliot Gill of Jellis Craig Richmond says interest in the project has been strong.  “For the larger terraces, most of the buyers are downsizers, coming out of the Booroondara area,” he says, “while for the smaller ones, we’re mainly getting enquiries from Richmond locals.”

In the living areas, the soaring ceilings will reach heights in excess three metres, which Elliot says is extremely rare for Richmond townhouses. “There will be a lot of natural light, and the units will be great for entertaining – particularly the rooftop area on some of the units,” Elliot adds.


Fully featured – including a butler’s pantry

Every element of chic design has been incorporated into this boutique complex, ensuring that residents don’t miss out on any amenities.

The kitchens are set to feature stone benchtops, timber joinery and Miele appliances, as well as abundant integrated storage and every entertainer’s must-have: the butler’s pantry. The bathrooms will echo the same theme, combining minimalism and functionality with cutting-edge design.

“They’ll have the high-end finish buyers expect to see in these types of developments in Richmond, in a great little pocket just off Swan Street,” says Elliot.


He notes that a particularly unique feature of the design is the external timber, a burnt Japanese wood that will retain its natural, charred finish without the need for re-staining.

It’s a phenomenal location – the Swan Street tram makes getting into the city a breeze, and Burnley train station is just a short walk away. The restaurants and bars of Swan Street beckon, with young professionals sure to relish in the proximity to the thriving Richmond nightlife.

For families, nearby schools include Melbourne Girls College, Richmond Primary and Hawthorn West Primary. From the rooftop entertaining areas, residents will enjoy amazing views of the city and Richmond Hill, perfect for a relaxing drink with friends.

With a price guide of $1.615 million, these unique properties are bound to capture the attention of eagle-eyed locals and investors. So, interested parties are advised to contact Elliot Gill on 0411 863 603, or Luke Schickerling on 0414 095 248, without delay – as 28 Farmer Street is not expected to stay on the market for long!
