Situated in the vibrant and cosmopolitan Edgewater Estate, just 7km from the city, surrounded by 30 acres of open parkland and with the Maribyrnong River flowing gently past, Lucien is a tranquil waterside retreat nestled amongst a community buzzing with new energy.
This green suburb boasts 6 large parks, all connected by 19 kilometres of riverside walking and cycling trails, as well as all the amenities you could need. Locals know they have discovered a hidden gem and cherish the sense of quiet community and sanctuary they have found so unexpectedly close to the city.
The highly sought-after lifestyle commanding magnificent views of the surrounding valley, city and river, coupled with Lucien’s stunning architectural and interior design means that you can have the best of both worlds.
Prominently sited on a corner near Jack’s Magazine and the landscape reserve, Lucien features dynamic and responsive design from Miceli Oldfield Sinton Architects appropriate to its iconic position. Modulated architectural expression and a varied palette of materials complement the variations in the existing residential character with earth colours together with muted tones responding to the landscape, and stronger colours and more dynamic forms responding to the street and roadways.
The building is designed to maximise sunlight and space with wide expanses of glass and balconies perfectly situated to take in the gorgeous views of the landscaped reserve and the Maribyrnong River including the sweeping vista of the Melbourne city skyline. The northern aspect features a communal terrace on the first level addressing the central plaza with internal aspects to enhance connection and community activity for residents.
Each residence incorporates responsive architecture and stylish interior design with meticulous planning to optimise its aspect, orientation, and natural light and ventilation. The design seeks not to follow trends, rather to gracefully and gently improve with time.
Interiors reflect the visual language of the building’s exterior, with a classic and tempered palette of greys, whites, timbers, stone and subtle copper highlights. Exemplary finishes and fixtures comprising stone bench-tops, bronzed mirrored splashbacks, timber look joinery and European appliances express a mature and understated luxury.
Generous open plan, light-drenched living spaces provide flexible layouts that can be configured to suit your lifestyle. Living areas open onto private outdoor balconies enhancing the seamlessly integrated living space, and considered balcony orientations will feel like they bring the magnificent views indoors.
Lucien offers a rare opportunity to experience the popular advantages of waterside-living coupled with an abundance of cosmopolitan amenities available at your doorstep.
Maribyrnong is home to many picturesque parks and gardens, educational facilities, sports grounds, cafés and restaurants, and shopping.
Enjoy sunny weekends outdoors with the multitude of activities available along the water or in the many parks nearby. There are endless cycling and running paths, barbecue areas and playgrounds, or try a spot of fishing or kayaking. Whether it be swinging a club or racket at the Riverside Golf and Tennis Centre or heading to the races at the Moonee Valley Racecourse, you will have no problem filling your weekends with adventurous activity.
There are schools for every level of education: from Highpoint Kinder, several primary schools and colleges, to Victoria University only a short bike ride away or 5 minutes in the car.
Great dining abounds – if you are in the mood for authentic Italian try Sorriso Caffe Trattoria or if you prefer your food with a view head to the Lakehouse Restaurant on the Marina or Masterchef judge, Gary Mehigan’s The Boathouse. For great coffee try Café Boutique or Café Sorelle.
If you feel like indulging your taste for high-end fashion, Highpoint Shopping Centre is just 7 minutes drive away and now has over 500 stores. Or a short 7 minute drive takes you to Footscray Market to browse the fresh fruit and vegetables.
Ongoing upgrades and development to nearby infrastructure, low vacancy rates, gathering popularity of the suburb and huge potential for growth make Lucien a very attractive proposition for any prospective investor.
With demand for property that is close to the city but also offering the advantages of quieter suburban living ever increasing, and local developments bringing excellent infrastructure, traffic solutions, businesses and employment opportunities, as well as other improvements to the suburb, all indicate Maribyrnong is a solid investment opportunity.
The current population of the City of Maribyrnong (86,977) is forecast to increase to 156,290 by 2041, an increase of 79.69%. This strong population growth coupled with the desirability of the area should see strong growth in property values and higher rental yields.
