High quality design, construction and finishes from a builder you can trust.

Luxury home buyers can discover a winning combination of distinctive design, high quality craftsmanship and personalised service at our recent opened new display home, the Urbane Forster, at 1288 Toorak Road, Camberwell.

Our designer, Millissa Vitali, says home buyers come to Comdain for light, open homes with high quality design, construction and finishes from a builder they can trust.

People come to us because we can design for any block. At Toorak Road we have created an east facing courtyard, ideal for brunch, while on the western side you can enjoy summer evenings around the pool.

Millissa has created a stylish, highly practical hub for the house with a butler’s pantry connected to the laundry, with both also connecting to the kitchen which conceals them from view.

“I wanted a very stylish kitchen and to make life as easy and relaxed as possible – using the connected spaces you can double your workspace to cater for larger groups, while hiding all the mess.”

The 43 square contemporary double storey home, designed for the typical 15.23 metre (50 ft) wide inner Melbourne block, has four bedrooms with three living areas and includes a ground level guest suite.

The home is light, airy and expansive with several grand spaces and a variety of places to hide away and relax. Based around American oak cabinetry and stairs, the interior palette includes polished concrete-style porcelain tiling and ‘Raw Concrete’ Caesarstone benchtops.

The living area ceiling pops up to a lofty 3.6 metres with a trio of full height windows looking onto the pool and the central staircase is set against a double height window wall designed to draw light through the centre of the house.

The home also highlights Comdain’s ability to suffuse its homes with natural light, whatever a site’s orientation. At Toorak Road a southern rear orientation is turned to advantage with three outdoor living areas creating choice and interest.

The Urbane Forster is open for inspection Saturday to Wednesday, 1pm-5pm, or by appointment.
