The Central Park Lifestyle
The Gascoigne Estate with its wide tree-lined streets and large allotments with beautifully renovated period homes is quintessential Malvern East.
The Gascoigne Estate with its wide tree-lined streets and large allotments with beautifully renovated period homes is quintessential Malvern East. Equally appealing to families of all ages and downsizers, the mixed age groups add to the overall character and community spirit of the neighbourhood. At the heart of the historic Estate and once part of a golf course, Central Park is a spectacular 19 acre greenspace designed in 1908 to provide botanic gardens, recreation areas and sportsgrounds for the local population to enjoy. One of only a handful of Edwardian public gardens in Victoria, it features one of the state’s oldest conservatories. A much loved hub for families, professional couples and retirees with its playground, off leash dog area, running track, bocce court and the John Landy Oval, Central Park is also surrounded by a superb range of highly regarded restaurants and cafes. A good range of public and private schools are also located within an easy walk, which means families can remain in the area for the entirety of their children’s school life.
Directly opposite its namesake and commanding wonderful park vistas, Central Park is a boutique development of 20 custom designed residences perfectly placed to benefit from all the surrounding amenities and transport options. The result of a brilliant collaboration by Buxtons, Ewert Leaf architects and Jack Merlo landscapes, these stunning residences will provide the ultimate in lock up and leave luxury. From the living spaces, bedrooms and balconies, the residents of Central Park will enjoy spectacular views of the park through all the changing seasons.
On Sunday, November 17 this year, Central Park will be transformed into a gourmand’s paradise with the third annual East Malvern Food and Wine Festival. There will be stalls and food trucks offering gourmet food from a range of restaurants, craft beers and a large selection of Victorian wines for locals to sample. Its a wonderful day for all of the family with roving entertainers to keep the children amused while the adults indulge in some serious wine tasting.
