Luxury living with all the conveniences of inner Sydney set this unique development apart.
It’s not every day that new terrace houses come onto the market in Sydney’s Inner West. With 15 contemporary four-bedroom homes, Millard Place in Glebe is sure to pique buyer interest.
The X Capital project, designed by WMK, Biasol and Black Beetle, is located on Wentworth Road, right near the spacious Wentworth Park.
Following a slight lull in 2020-21, demand for homes in Glebe is surging, with prices rise by more than one third, Angus Moore, economist at realestate.com.au, says.
“The median house price in Glebe was $2.3 million at the end of March — up 37% year-on-year,” Moore says. “We actually saw prices decline very slightly in Glebe in the previous year during the pandemic — so it’s a strong result.”
Behind the increase in demand for Glebe homes is its broad demographic appeal, with a range of buyers attracted to larger homes and the sought-after harbourside lifestyle.
“Glebe attracts professionals wanting to live close to the city, as well as students being near Sydney University, but it also has long-established dwellings and families,” Moore says.
“Glebe is a very attractive suburb for inner-city living. You get a lot of the benefits of harbourside living and at the same time it’s close to the city, as well as Ultimo and Pyrmont.”
Convenience and lifestyle
A major drawcard of Glebe is its proximity to fantastic amenities, says Noel Lucas-Martinez, director of residential sales, Belle Property Pyrmont.
“Glebe is a vibrant and diverse area, with waterfront walks, extensive green spaces and historic tree-lined streets,” Lucas-Martinez says.
“Exciting adventures in food, nature and culture are everywhere, while a short walk or a few minutes of transport can take you to cinemas and artisan grocers.
“It is an ultra-convenient inner-city location, central to everything.”
Millard Place residents will have Wentworth Park, Blackwattle Bay and the new Sydney Fish Market at their doorstep.
The Glebe Village shops, including the weekly Glebe Market, Broadway shopping centre and Tramsheds are also within easy walking distance.
Meanwhile, its central location means offices, schools and universities are just a stroll away. Glebe borders Sydney University and the University of Technology, while a light rail line provides easy connections between Dulwich Hill and Central. Plus, bus connections make getting around town easy — a bus from Glebe Point Road to Central takes about 15 minutes.
A quiet retreat
Glebe is renowned for its classic and much-loved Edwardian and Victorian terraces. Millard Place has been designed to complement the surrounding architecture, while catering to the living needs of today, explains John Andreas from WMK Architecture.
“We took the classic old terrace typology that is pretty dominant in the area and ‘pulled it apart’ a little bit,” Andreas says.
The terrace homes are unashamedly contemporary whilst resonating with Glebe’s unique heritage.
With older-style terraces often being a little dark inside, Andreas says the goal of the three-level homes was to deliver the complete opposite.
“We’ve allowed light down into the middle of each home with a unique internal garden atrium that can be accessed from the bedrooms,” he says.
With so much to do in Glebe and surrounds, the Millard Place terrace homes have been designed to provide a beautiful space to retreat and simply relax, Andreas explains.
“We created a very open style of living, but still having a sense of your own space to escape to,” says Andreas.
“You have the ground floor with the study space and secondary bedroom, then you have the full living space on the first floor, while the top is crowned by the master bedroom and the fourth bedroom,” says Andreas.
Lucas-Martinez says no detail has gone unnoticed when it comes to interior designs, with premium timber flooring, custom joinery, stone and timber finishes, Miele appliances, stone island benches and abundant storage.
“For those buyers who may have been looking at an apartment, the homes combine the scale and privacy of a standalone house with the sophistication, finishing and space of a newly built inner-city luxury development,” Lucas-Martinez says.
MIllard Place features 15 brand-new, luxury four-bedroom Torrens title homes in the heart of Glebe.
The interior layouts feature defined kitchen, dining and living spaces that open onto large outdoor terraces. They have four bedrooms, two ensuites, a guest powder room and internal laundry.
Each home features its own private interior lift, making them suitable for busy entertainers, families and downsizers. They also have a double garage with internal access.
Creating terraces in an area where new developments tend to be apartments was an exciting opportunity for the design team, says Andreas. The result is a collection of beautiful boutique terrace homes he is proud to have helped produce.
“You don’t get much of a chance to design something like that within this area — we’re very lucky.”
