Discover the new standard of living in South Sydney

Tue Oct 18

From the serenity of the Georges River to peaceful beaches and idyllic parks and reserves, Allen & George is surrounded by spots for residents to relax and unwind.

Allen & George, a brand-new boutique development positioned at the top of the hill in South Hurstville, is establishing a new benchmark for South Sydney living.

And it’s not hard to see why. A wide range of natural attractions for outdoor activities is within easy reach, including Georges River and its national park, Carss Bush Park, Ramsgate and Brighton-Le-Sands beaches and two golf courses.

Also nearby are Westfield Hurstville for shopping, dining and entertainment, St Georges Hospital, and highly regarded state and independent schools.

The development’s larger floorplans, peaceful neighbourhood and proximity to the CBD and South Sydney amenities are important to local buyers, says project director James Lampropoulos.

“The developer, BRDB, has opted for generous floor plans and high-quality inclusions to create the right product for local owner-occupiers,” he explains.

“Many of our buyers have lived or grown up in the St George area. They’re a great mix of young couples, young families and right sizers who want the convenience of living centrally while still feeling like they are part of a neighbourhood.”

Lampropoulos says there is nothing comparable in the region, with siblings from a local family who were keeping an eye out for the right local development buying three apartments.

“They saw the value in the location, nearby amenities and larger apartment sizes and bought immediately.”

Award-winning stu+FF Studio has designed Allen & George as an architectural landmark with a distinctive curved masonry and concrete façade and laser-cut metal screens.

A communal garden separates its two buildings and with three street frontages, the project offers a higher proportion of corner apartments with triple aspects.

Apartments also feature outlooks onto the tranquil landscaped garden. Prices start from $650,000 for one-bedroom units and from $750,000 for two bedrooms.

There are also two three-bedroom penthouses ranging from $1.490 million to $1.595 million and most apartments also come with secure double parking on title.

Offering 57 larger apartments in a prime location with connectivity and lifestyle, Allen & George is 1.5 kilometres from Hurstville station, with an 18-minute trip to Central Station. To the south, Wollongong is an hour’s drive.

BRDB has a 58-year record of developing award-winning projects in London, Malaysia, and Australia, and has recently completed projects in Miranda, and Wollongong.

General manager Alex Lei says BRDB liked the well-connected location, with an established local neighbourhood and good amenities.

They were familiar with the area, having completed and sold out Verdana Miranda a few kilometres away.

“Our design approach is to offer intelligently designed homes with uplifting aesthetics. We partner with innovative designers and reputable builders to bring success to our projects,” Lei says.

The 40 two-bedroom floorplans range from 80 to 90 square metres internally, with up to 46 square metres of private outdoor space.

The 14 one-bedroom apartments offer 58 to 76 square metres of internal living and up to 25 square metres outside; some include a separate study.

The two penthouses offer 250 and 266 combined indoor and outdoor living. Five homes have courtyard gardens and a private pedestrian gate to a side street.

The fresh and modern interiors include wide timber boards and custom-designed timber-grained joinery in living spaces, with fully-tiled bathrooms and carpeted bedrooms.

Large, highly functional kitchens include Smeg appliances and stone benchtops, with most of the two- and three-bedroom units featuring a 3-metre-plus island bench.

A multi-purpose community room adjoins the shared garden and courtyard for residents’ exclusive use – ideal for gatherings and exercise classes.

The three building entry points include a breezeway from King Georges Road and two security gate entrances from the side streets.

Lampropoulos says BRDB is retaining ownership of the three commercial tenancies to ensure the quality and type of tenants add value for residents and the local community.
