Flanked by an abundance of native landscaping, Rose & Anna’s meandering internal streets are both engaging and tranquil. Comprised of just 27 homes, the facades have been crafted to appear modern yet familiar, embracing warm materials such as timber and brick, and homely pitched roofs.
The living area’s thoughtful, open-plan design will allow families to interact with ease as they work, play, cook and unwind. Established upon durable timber floors, a simple yet texturally rich palette evokes an instant atmosphere of calm, complemented by the picturesque greenery of the landscaping. Connecting directly to the terrace, residents will be able to open the sliding doors to create an indoor-outdoor living sanctuary with plenty of room for entertaining.
Well-appointed, functional and generously-sized, the kitchen is designed around an elegant island bench adorned in striking natural stone. Here, abundant joinery houses space for all your kitchenwares whilst high-end appliances foster cooking and cleaning in style.
Creating a retreat for parents, the expansive and well-appointed master bedroom features soft wool carpets along with a private balcony for your morning cup of coffee. The walk-in robe will allow you to store and organise your garments with ease, complete with an array of built-in hangers and shelves. Continue through to the adjoining ensuite – a place of self-care – where contemporary tiles combine with bold feature tapware and a luxurious free-standing bathtub.
Rose & Anna features a large rumpus room with separate external access, providing a sense of independence and privacy. Expansive and light-filled, this versatile space could be utilised as a gym, dance studio, art room and beyond. The homes also offer a second living and study area, enabling your family to engage in various activities at one time, under one roof. If your household expands over time, these additional spaces will ensure you’re equipped with more than enough room.
