Kew’s First Choice Home Builders


Situated just 6 km East of Melbourne’s CBD, Kew is known for its peace and quiet, stunning Yarra River views, and just a 15-minute drive to the emerging suburb Ashwood. This suburban dream is home to beautiful property landscapes intertwined with a rich abundance of Australian history.

A city in its own right, Kew joined with Camberwell and Hawthorn in 1994 to form the larger city of Boroondara and is now described as one of the most prestigious suburbs in Melbourne.

A New Home Builder’s Dream in Kew

In January 2020, the average price of a three-bedroom home was a reported $1.5m AUD, with rent pulling in an average of $675 per week.

This comes as no shock, as the streets of Kew play host to rows of phenomenal Edwardian, Victorian and contemporary Hampton-style architecture, earning its prominent status and exciting residential resale values. Expect tree-lined avenues, family-friendly parks and reserves, prestigious schools that boast alumni such as AFL’s Hugh Beasley, cyclist Phil Anderson and Dame Zara Bate DBE – fashion designer and wife of former Prime Minister Harold Holt.

Heritage Homes

Take inspiration from one particularly stylish local home – Kew’s famous heritage-listed Italian mansion Raheen, which stands tall on Studley Park Road and flaunts great Victorian architectural and historical significance. Raheen, meaning ‘Little Fort’ in Gaelic, was completed in 1884 and once served as the residence of the Archbishop of Melbourne. Now owned by Melbourne billionaire businessman Anthony Pratt and family, the stunning home features red brick, cement rendering and characteristics of the decadent and classical Italianate style.

Another must-visit home is the Villa Alba, which lends architectural, historic, social and aesthetic elements to the suburb of Kew. The villa was built and decorated in 1884 for local prominent banker William Greenlaw, and went on to become the Royal Women’s Hospital, the Mount Royal Hospital, and the historical museum it is today.
