A prized seaside gem encompasses design brilliance and style

Lowe Living recently delivered Topaz Parkdale, a modernist masterpiece offering a relaxed beachside lifestyle. Blending perfectly into its surroundings this haven is located a short stroll from Parkdale Village and amenities and presents four townhomes and eighteen apartments that combine exquisite design with private outdoor havens.

“Topaz Parkdale is inspired by its desirable location,” explains Lowe Living Managing Director Tim Lowe. “One of the unique aspects of Topaz Parkdale is the relationship between architecture, landscaping and surrounds.” With the convenience of bayside living demonstrated through the low-maintenance building exterior, Tim says that Topaz Parkdale’s location is at the centre of the lifestyle it seeks to promote. “With the beauty of Port Phillip Bay only a short walk away, along with the enviable amenities of the much-loved Parkdale Village and neighbouring bayside suburbs, Topaz Parkdale provides the rare opportunity to enjoy a sea change while not compromising on locale or quality.”

Topaz was quickly identified as a remarkable development, with 80% already under contract by construction commencement.


Lowe Living and Chamberlain Architects have put their design flair to excellent use in crafting the luxurious Topaz residences, which were desired to create bright, airy spaces that have a focus on liveability and connection to generous outdoor areas. The vision for Topaz was brought to life with intricate tri-level construction. Aesthetically striking, the façade reveals a timeless, low maintenance textural palette of contrasting brickwork and toned renders.

Set back from the apartments in the idyllically quiet Thomas Court are four generously proportioned townhomes. With heavily articulated upper levels creating a unique composition, the townhouses were scooped up by savvy buyers. Most dwellings have been orientated to the North to maximise access to natural light. Combined with generous private open space areas, the homes retain a lush suburban feel.

Inside the homes, living zones have been adorned with floor-to-ceiling windows and full-height glass doors, leaving the spaces aglow with light. Warm timber floors and integrated gas fireplace options provide an added sense of comfort, as lush courtyards encourage contemplation or social conversation at any time of the day. Grey-toned kitchens with pendant lights above the island benches provide a central point to gather without detracting from the rich greens of the garden, complementing the living room and fireplace.

Bringing a unique architectural approach to landscape design, Jack Merlo has developed a landscape scheme at Topaz to complement the clean architectural lines and full-height doors that spill out to courtyards and secluded balconies, extending the living experience. “The expansive glazing provides beautifully landscaped backdrops to internal spaces,” says Director Jack Merlo. Lush planting on private courtyards and balconies, and an abundance of open spaces with landscaping, create a seamless connection with nature. Basement car parking for residents and visitors deliver the utmost security and convenience.

Topaz presents as an architectural masterpiece rooted in Lowe Living’s commitment to creating luxury homes that are masterfully crafted. Having exceeded expectations with its meticulous attention to detail and vision, Topaz stands out as a symbol of excellence from Lowe Living.

With the last residence now selling, townhouse 3/1 Thomas Court, Park offers a luxurious 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom townhome achieving an enduring expression of design excellence and contemporary style. This light-filled residence offers a palpable sense of opulence and refined sophistication, with spacious interiors, full-height doors, and warm engineered timber flooring seamlessly transitioning to the sundrenched north-facing courtyard for complete indoor/outdoor connection. The perfect amalgamation of lifestyle and luxury, this is a home that should be at the top of every ‘must inspect’ list. Learn more about the Topaz townhome here.
