The word home can inspire so many different things for so many different people, however one constant is that it should represent a complete picture of serenity – which The Malton delivers in spades.

The home should be a place that allows you to relax and immerse yourself in the surroundings while enjoying an elevated sense of wellbeing and comfort. This needs to be built into every aspect of design – from the architecture, to the interior design, to the selection of appliances and furnishings. The Malton, in Beecroft New South Wales designed by PBD Architects in collaboration with Central Element is a perfect encapsulation of this design philosophy.
The Malton is a prestigious new residential development hidden within a tranquil and leafy haven, just 20km north of Sydney. Seemingly secluded from the bustling centre, the development is a short stroll away from Beecroft Village where residents can enjoy boutiques, bookstores, restaurants, cafes and even a local golf course, tennis courts and parklands.
Designed by PBD Architects in collaboration with the award-winning property development team at Central Element, the design philosophy of The Malton revolves around a total commitment to luxury. Comprising ten beautifully designed houses, the result is a collection of homes channelling a contemporary yet classical architectural style – honouring the heritage of the existing buildings on site, while offering an idyllic lifestyle and luxurious experiences.
The development is an inspired combination of modern, well-appointed interiors and the restoration of historical façades of the site’s two existing buildings. The new homes are heavily influenced by the original heritage architecture – making sure to complement the existing buildings perfectly through height, form, materials and style.
“The Malton’s timeless design draws inspiration from its heritage past,” says Dean Chivas, Development Manager of Central Element, “We like to say it’s inspired by the past but designed for the future. The Malton manages to strike a balance between old and new, contributing to the history of the area while providing residents everything they need to lead a contemporary, laid-back lifestyle.”
Within the interiors, every detail has been considered, with the quality being unsurpassed and a true point of difference, from the Gaggenau appliances, wine cellar and marble benches, right down to the statement classic skirting boards and architraves.
While the matching architecture of the homes inspires from the outside, the owners have many options to personalise the space from the interiors. For those who appreciate an epicurean culture and want to enjoy exploring gourmet delights to their heart’s content, they will find that the professional-grade Gaggenau kitchen appliances offer everything they could dream of. The Malton provides residents with the height of luxury throughout the interiors and Chivas explains why Gaggenau was selected for the premium appliances, “At Central Element, we have rigorous standards of quality. In the residential space, we typically sell high-end apartments to discerning owner-occupiers; they expect the best and they are creatures of comfort, wanting what they are used to. They expect kitchens to be the same quality to that of the kitchen they have had in their $3m+ homes. Therefore, we specified Gaggenau as an option.”
The elegantly appointed kitchens exude a sophisticated atmosphere that is both welcoming and inspiring with oak timber floorboards paired beautifully with natural elba stone that is featured on the splashback and benchtops. Complementing the interior aesthetic is the Gaggenau 200 series oven and microwave with full surface grill, both in the striking Gaggenau metallic finish, along with the 200 series 90cm gas cooktop, providing the latest cooking technology and precision in a sleek design that even professional chefs will appreciate.
For those who are entering the next chapter of their lives, moving out of a large family home and downsizing into something smaller, they can rest assured that the luxurious lifestyle they have become accustomed to will not only continue, but thrive in a place like The Malton, Beecroft. The superb quality of everything both inside and out is a testament to the incredible vision of both the architect and Central Element, creating a forever home that will be enjoyed for many years to come.
