Rent here, and you might never want to leave. Described as ‘fantasy worlds’ by Australian property developer PB&Co, the five exquisitely furnished apartments that form the hotly-anticipated Fifty Two Black project instantly give leaseholders access to luxury living.
To top things off, the executive units are located in Brighton, one of Melbourne’s most exclusive beachside suburbs with celebrity residents including AFL power couple Bec and Chris Judd who reside in a $7.3million mansion.
Cricketer Shane Warne is another big fan of the area and he’s snapped up several Brighton properties including a mansion on William Street which he shared with Elizabeth Hurley, and sold for more than $10 million.
Near completion, the Fifty Two Black residences – a mere 10-minute walk from Shane Warnes house – will be available for short-term or long-term leases in the second quarter of this year.
PB & Co president Michael Pesochinsky says that renters will be able to walk in ‘with a toothbrush and nothing else’ as all the details have been taken care of thanks to an exclusive team of designers and innovators.
Step inside the world-class architecturally designed landmark building
Revered Australian architect Nicholas Day and New York-based Gregory Tuck teamed up to construct the building and Day said he took inspiration from the ‘light, Mediterranean feel of the seaside Melbourne neighborhood in which it sits, and the Art Modern style of the early 20th century Cote D’Azur’.
Meanwhile, New York-based designer Meg Sharpe worked her magic on the interiors presenting a meze of the hottest trends in art, fashion and design.
Her assortment of accessories complement the sumptuous spread of ultra-luxe materials sourced by Day and Tuck.
Offering a taste of what leaseholders can expect, each apartment features more than 10 types of marble sourced from around the world and chevron light oak flooring makes for the perfect canvas for refined furnishings to take center stage.
Day, who served as the lead architect on the project, says that the living spaces offer ‘the rich experience that only superior proportions and bespoke detailing can provide’.
Some of the other standout luxury features include European kitchens with butler’s pantries and slick Wolf and Sub Zero appliances, while large wrought-iron arched doors and oversized chandeliers play on the grandiose theme.
Moving outside, the apartments feature exquisite private garden and terrace spaces masterminded by award-winning landscape gardener Jack Merlo.
For those worried about prying eyes, a wall runs around the perimeter of the property creating a sense of privacy and the use of foliage and climbing plants adds to the secluded feel.
A rare luxury leasing opportunity
Leasing one of the apartments at 52 Black Street, provides the unique possibility of living in the highly sought-after Brighton suburb without investing in a one-time purchase.
The developers see it as an ideal opportunity for high-net-worth individuals relocating to the area or carrying out renovations on their current homes and it’s a highly attractive proposition for corporate executives conducting business in the city.
For holidaymakers, the ultra-luxe rentals also offer a more personable experience over extended hotel stays but they still have all of the necessary amenities to hand including an onsite concierge, security services and a private butler, all available 24/7.
Each apartment features three bedrooms, three bathrooms, two spacious living areas and state-of-the-art kitchens.
Soaring ceilings and oversized windows run throughout creating a feeling of space, while the neutral color scheme adds to the sunny, light-filled atmosphere.
Along with outdoor spaces, each property features a garage with room for up to four vehicles. Also, Fifty Two Black offers a personal chauffeur service available for all tenants.
In terms of pricing, the rentals range from $5,500 to $7,700 per week. The building has been split into four apartments and one penthouse, with the largest residence spanning 490sqm in total and the smallest coming in at 293 sqm.
Interested parties are being encouraged to enquire now as the rentals are set to be snapped up quickly and pre-registrations are currently being vetted.
