Long favoured by Melbourne's elite, the suburb of Toorak is highly-regard as one of the most sought-after postcodes in the state.

With mansion lined streets and leafy green spaces, the area seeps heritage and history at every corner, home to the longstanding Toorak House, which was built just before the discovery of gold in Victoria and considered to be possibly the oldest surviving mansion in the state. 

Stepping into the modern era, the area's central hub, Toorak Village, boasts an array of eclectic restaurants and cafes, and boutique retailers, with the South Yarra neighbour home to all that is desired and required. 

Often referred to as the 'Beverly Hills of Melbourne' due to its mansions and affluent residents, those looking to step out can easily access Melbourne's CBD, which sits just five-kilometres away, although there often isn't any need to venture too far. 

A number of Melbourne’s most prestigious schools can also be found within Toorak’s boundaries, like St Catherine’s School and St Kevin’s College.

One of the most striking developments on the market, recently launched by the Sydney-based SPG Group, is Euroka.

Euroka keeps in style with Toorak, drawing inspiration from Melbourne’s iconic Roy Grounds House, which was once home to one of Victoria’s most influential modern architects.

There's just 10 luxury apartments on offer, created by the renowned Carr Design team.

Carr's Managing Director Chris McCue says Euroka’s brutalist form is expressed in precast and off-form concrete.

“The heavy-weight nature of the concrete structure appears to float above the ground-floor apartments," McCue says.

Upon entry, residents are welcomed to a body of water, leading to a light-filled atrium entry that incorporates landscape design in conjunction with Acre Studio.

“Our design philosophy prioritises interior spaces that open out to external views," McCue added.

"This has been consistently applied throughout the project’s planning strategies, with the axes aligned across each of the unit types to each of the 10 apartments.

“Overhead voids cut into expansive first-floor terraces greater connect plan types to view and light with broad open plan spaces across the northern and southern facades."

With a robust form, and a gallery-like, three-tiered elevation, each apartment has been designed with a unique aspect across the three levels.

Residents also benefit from easy access to a number of Toorak's best amenity, including the Main Yarra Trail which winds its way along the iconic Yarra River.
