Boat House

Urban's three favourite things about Boat House:

  • Gorgeous panoramic river and city views.
  • Proximity to major retail and employment precincts.
  • Walkable parklands and river trails.

Enjoy life on the water's edge

With absolute river frontage, Boat House brings exceptional architectural design to the unique inner city location in Footscray, Melbourne’s charming western CBD.
Designed by award-winning firm CHT Architects, the building is inspired by the Maribyrnong’s riparian environment as it winds through the suburbs and opens out onto the Bay and reflects the neighbourhood’s rich marine heritage in a striking, articulated podium facade.

Plenty of space with views of the CBD and river

Drawing on the herringbone patterns of timber boat decking, Boat House embraces the natural environment with signature colonnading, creating multiple spaces that allow residents to experience the beauty of the waterfront to its fullest.

Comprising of 193 one and two bedroom apartments, Boat House offers high quality spacious floor plans for affordable prices with panoramic river and city views, which is a rarity for a suburb located only 4 kilometres from the Melbourne CBD!

Meticulous attention to detail is on display in every corner of every room. The interior design team at CHT Architects specially selected premium quality fixtures and fittings to deliver elegant touches to an atmosphere of contemporary comfort.

Timeless design set to impress

A sophisticated monochromatic palette offers a timeless and considered setting with plenty of room for your own individuality to shine. Engineered oak flooring in the living areas, plush carpeted bedrooms, luxurious practical considerations such as storage and spacious open plan living contribute to the overall ‘wow’ factor.

Kitchens are superbly appointed with stone benchtops, glass splashbacks and modern European appliances. Bathrooms have clever spatial design with sophisticated tapware and generous storage space.
Enjoy your gorgeous view that will never be interrupted through floor-to-ceiling double glazed windows that allow natural light to seep into every living space and bedroom.

Located in the cultural melting pot of Footscray, find warmth in the welcome of a vibrant, well connected community. Within walking distance, you will find large fresh food markets and second-hand clothing stalls within the city centre, large supermarkets, retail, commercial and eclectic restaurants that line the main streets.
