The three penthouses crowning Sunkin's luxury apartment development, 448 Brighton, are set to hit the market.

The penthouse collection, dubbed Coleridge, Mitford and Wordsworth, will sit a top the boutique project of just 17 apartments on the corner of St Kilda Street and Head Street, set 448 metres from one of Melbourne's best beaches.

Wordsworth is the most luxurious of the three, with its own private infinity swimming pool and offering ocean, park and city views.

Spanning nearly 700 sqm of indoor and outdoor living, the Wordsworth comprises four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a wine room/ study. There are $7 million hopes.

The Coleridge spans just over 500 sqm, and with four bedrooms plus wine room/study and two bathrooms, while the Mitford is the smallest of the trio at 470 sqm and three bedrooms.

SJB Architects designed 448 Brighton, with a focus on the three penthouse to make everything feel central. The biggest design innovation was in the kitchen, where they put the cooking process at the centre as opposed to up against the wall, in an effort to create a more open and social experience.

The kitchens feature a horizontal layout with a long and sculptural natural stone bench and are fitted with Gaggenau appliances and Bora and Astra Walker tapware.

Sunkin Property Group Executive Director Jason Zhu said the design of 448 has been considered with the resident in mind.

“We have chosen kitchen appliances that will help to elevate the cooking environment as a collaborative and social place, where residents can still be present with guests as they’re using the stove top as opposed to having their back turned.

“While the interiors are very finely considered, they are also an extraordinary canvas, providing residents with the opportunity to make it their own,” he said. SJB Architecture has drawn on a relaxed earthy palette, with an abundance of natural materials; the contemporary interiors bear the hallmarks of timeless grace.

Tristan Wong, Director of SJB Architecture said the desire was to create a strong connection with nature.

“Large balconies and picture windows flood each residence with natural light, while the outside foliage creates dappled shadow, and the feeling of living in the treetops,” he said.

Ground floor residents have access to a large 532sqm garden oasis by Jack Merlo, while penthouses enjoy their own private rooftop terrace, complete with bayside and city views.

With the project nearing completion, Sunkin has witnessed demand soar, recording close to $6 million in sales over a five-week period, with strong interest from local downsizers and regional purchasers seeking a city pad in Melbourne’s bayside.
