The name Toorak has become synonymous with wealth and privilege, the suburb long having the reputation of being Melbourne’s most elite and ranking among the most prestigious in Australia. Toorak is a green and picturesque suburb of mansions, glamorous restaurants and boutique shopping, and home to many of Melbourne’s social elite. It has the highest average property values in Melbourne, and is one of the most expensive suburbs in Australia.
A wander of the suburb can encompass jaw-dropping historic mansions alongside equally luxurious but totally contemporary homes and smaller period houses. There are also plenty of apartment options in Toorak, from mid-century blocks of flats to brand new, ultra-modern apartment complexes.
We have helped update or transform many beautiful homes using plantation shutters, roller blinds and curtains. We commonly use retractable awnings to extend the indoors by creating outdoor dining spaces and sun protection over pools. We also sell and install motorised awnings for the ultimate convenience.
To discuss how we can help you transform your Toorak home, visit our showroom at 159 Martin Street, Brighton or give us a call on (03) 9596 2335 or request a free measure and quote.
