Downsizing doesn’t have to mean downgrading. In fact, selling the family home could allow you to start a new chapter of your life in the extraordinary luxury offered by The Maitland with the advantage of a sizable nest egg in your bank account. Following the success of the Hawksburn apartments on Malvern Road, Gibson Developments has brought their passion for clean, ergonomic design, attention to detail, and obsession with quality to Glen Iris for the first time. Now, you can enjoy the benefits of modern apartment living in the heart of a bustling, village-like neighbourhood.


The Maitland display suite enables you to experience first-hand the design and artistry that will exist in your future home. Please contact us for a personal tour.


Kids, what kids?

Orientated towards the north, terraces and walls of glass allow sunlight to spill into the home, forming a constant connection with the natural surrounds. With landscaped balconies extending the master bedroom and living areas, the apartments become elevated homes with private gardens. At the heart of the residences, luxuriously appointed, informal kitchens feature integrated European appliances, chrome fixtures and fittings and natural stone benchtops, while clever ergonomics and storage ensure that cooking meals is an effortless and social experience.

So that's what an empty nest looks like

Within the spacious bathrooms, textured walls are offset by refined tonal accents from white stone basins and chrome tapware to pale timber joinery. Deep, stand-alone bathtubs, as well as custom designed Omvivo vanity units, unique to The Maitland, provide extra touches of opulence. In the private areas of the home, elegant master bedrooms with walk-in robes connect with private terraces, so residents can wake up to natural light, fresh air and green vistas.
