Farmer Cutter & Swan, at 16-25 Farmer Street Richmond, Victoria, is a small collection of nine properties designed to provide high quality living experiences in the heart of a quintessentially Melburnian suburb.
The development by Beams Projects offers open living space over four levels with natural light and quality materials selected for their textural and tonal interest. Farmer Cutter & Swan finds the" luxuries of everyday life are and how they are translated into the built environment", through natural materials with unaffected style, proximity to public transport, and being at home within a vibrant community. Realestate.com.au lists prices for the properties ranging from $1,090,000 through to $1,350,000.
The vertical design of the loft-style residences responds to their laneway location with an elevated position and interior styling with a subtle industrial aesthetic. High ceilings above open-plan living, large bedrooms with deep window boxes, and private interior courtyards suggest an inner-city oasis, complete with continued space on each loft’s own rooftop deck and garden. Miele appliances, high ceilings and secure off street parking, while being 3.5 kilometres from Melbourne's CBD are listed as key features of the development.
The open-plan living and kitchen level has high ceilings and all materials are selected for style and practicality. Recessed LED task lighting in over-bench cabinetry makes all the difference in food preparation and is complemented by an adjustable arm wall light. Open shelving allows quick access and doubles as a presentation spot for cookbooks and treasured items.
Understated luxury continues in the two bathrooms and powder room. Square white gloss tiles create a clean and cool space, and the smart lines of recessed mirror cabinets framed in dark metal are matched by charcoal tiling in the spacious showers. Marble flooring is smooth and tactile underfoot.
The project is marketed by Jellis Craig Projects and its estimated completion date is April 2018.
