5 SEPTEMBER 2017: The only luxury penthouses in the Hills District are set to be released at Esplanade on Norwest Lake, giving much-needed housing choice for residents looking to relocate from large homes and gardens to a resort-style, low-maintenance lifestyle.

Development Manager Capital Bluestone will release the six generous penthouses in lateAugust, ahead of demolition starting on site in October, thanks to an increase in inquiry from local residents looking for luxury apartment living.

“Esplanade is the area’s first resort-style development which is proving popular with local downsizers looking to simplify their lifestyle,” Capital Bluestone Executive Chairman Steve Grant.

“With features such as an outdoor pool and spa, an outdoor cinema, lush landscaped areas for socialising and relaxing, cabanas, barbecue areas and a gymnasium – Esplanade is like nothing else in The Hills and these luxurious penthouses are a rare offering in this market.”

The penthouse range is priced between $2,000,000 and $2,950,000, with internal sizes ranging from 113sqm to 169sqm and 27sqm to 65sqm externally.

“Two penthouses at Esplanade have previously sold in off-market transactions for recordbreaking sales of more than $3 million and $2.5 million earlier this year – a key indication buyers are ready to make the switch to apartment living in this area,” Mr Grant said.

With Australian Bureau of Statistics figures showing there are nearly 1800 homes with at least four bedrooms being occupied by only one person in The Hills, the vertical living on offer at Esplanade gives much-needed housing choice in the local area.

Nick Turner from architectural firm Turner said the finishes for the penthouses had been chosen for their quality and durability.

“We’ve used a light, natural colour palette that while distinctive, provides owners with the ideal canvas to express their personal style,” he said.

“Adding to the beauty and functionality of these residences are the natural timber floors, large gourmet kitchens featuring a butler’s pantry with wine fridge, extensive custom joinery, full-height porcelain tiles in the bathrooms and automatic blinds in living areas.”

The penthouses are also designed so the master bedroom is separate to the guest rooms, creating essentially two living wings like in larger homes.

Floor-to-ceiling glass brings in ample natural light and makes a feature of the incredible views across Norwest Lake to the city skyline or back to the Blue Mountains. A sense of luxury exudes from all features, including the beautiful European oak flooring, premium Miele appliances, bespoke joinery, freestanding baths, heated towel rails, built-in barbecue in alfresco area and extensive outdoor areas.

Also available at Esplanade are two-bedroom apartments from $810,000 to $1,040,000 and three-bedroom units ranging from $1,165,000 to $1,320,000.

Critical milestone reached as demolition set to begin The release of the exclusive penthouses at Esplanade coincides with Capital Bluestone’s announcement that demolition will commence on the site on 24 October 2017 following current tenant Sydney Ice Arena’s decision to vacate the premises. Demolition on the site is expected to take three months.

“Esplanade is designed to enhance the way people live in The Hills by embracing the lowmaintenance lifestyle that comes with apartment living,” Steve Grant said.

“This announcement of demolition works on site to allow Esplanade to start to take shape is a significant step for our future residents and for the evolution of Norwest from hugely successful business park into a thriving urban hub.”

Over the course of the past 25 years, Capital Bluestone has delivered more than $2.5 billion in total project completions and has a current project pipeline of more than $2 billion.

This includes a $700m portfolio of 45 projects at Norwest, accommodating the workspace needs of more than 1000 businesses.

The group has more recently earned a market reputation for its approach to community-focused development, with its flagship $750m Sutherland Shire project Woolooware Bay Town Centre.

The project will deliver more than 600 apartments, a new shopping, dining and entertainment precinct and a rejuvenated new Club environment for joint venture partner the Cronulla Sutherland Leagues Club.

The project sold out all 460 available apartments in 2015, with Stage 1 now complete and occupied; and Stage 2 to be delivered early 2018. New apartments in Stage 3 – the final release in Woolooware Bay’s western precinct – will come to the market later this year.

Capital Bluestone has recently broken ground on its near sold out 220-apartment development Veridian at Kogarah, to be delivered in partnership with Kogarah RSL.

The business is also development manager for Esplanade Norwest Lake and has worked with the community, council and business owners within the area to ensure the project fits with existing buildings but also brings about a renewed energy and sets a new benchmark for future projects within the area.
