Alke apartments deliver stylish boutique living in the heart of Oakleigh, just 13km from Melbourne's CBD.

Summer Housing has ten immaculately presented apartments available for occupancy peppered throughout a two building, 89-unit private residential development.

With ground floor retail and exquisite culinary choices a moment away at Oakleigh Village, Alke is perfectly positioned for all of life's pleasures and necessities.

Open plan kitchen, dining and living space is a core feature of the apartments, with the development also boasting a communal garden for residents' enjoyment.

The single-level apartments will feature customisable kitchens, bathrooms and laundries as well as wheelchair accessible private outdoor areas. Apartments are assistive technology ready and are capable of customisable home automation to meet individual needs. Apartments also feature an emergency power solution in the event of a power outage and structural provisions for the installation of ceiling hoists.

The design of the Summer Housing apartments will exceed Livable Housing Australia’s Platinum design level and meet High Physical Support design requirements under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). An on-site Supported Independent Living provider will provide a concierge support service to tenants of the apartments.

Apartments will be enrolled with the NDIS as Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), 1 bedroom, 1 resident High Physical Support Apartments.

The apartments are due for completion in late 2019.
