Boutique residential development under construction in Bowral designed to provide maximum privacy

23 January 2023

A luxury boutique residential collection of just four pavilion residences in the New South Wales’ Southern Highlands is expected to attract buyers looking for a low-maintenance home offering privacy.

The residences in Elmsdale, at 56 Kangaloon Road in Bowral, which each have three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a double garage, have been designed around carefully positioned landscaped gardens for maximum privacy.

Designed by Bowral-based Tziallas Architects for the developer, Birdy, the internal living space for the homes ranges from 214.5sq m to 233.5sq m, with the land size for each ranging from 387sq m to 407sq m.

The residences include two living rooms, an entry hallway with a built-in window seat, under floor heating and heated towel rails, butler’s pantry, garden terrace and entertainer’s deck that connects from open living areas, feature gas fireplace, wall panelling and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The homes, which are currently under construction, are being marketed for sale by Knight Frank agent Nathan Berlyn.

They are priced from $2.5 million to $2.7 million.

Josiah Sciascia of Birdy said space, light and laidback luxury characterised the future-proofed pavilions in Elmsdale, designed with the highest quality of finishes for a low maintenance lifestyle.

“The residences are the epitome of Southern Highlands life,” he said.

“Vaulted ceilings, clean lines, and easy flow floorplans come together to create a tranquil and inviting home for relaxing and entertaining.

“Each residence is individually designed to incorporate understated opulent materials including recycled brick, modern roof profiles, vertical v-groove cladding and contemporary landscaping for a low-maintenance lifestyle.

“They are also future proofed for accessibility. Each residence is designed with generous space in the kitchen, master bedroom and main bathroom with large spacious hallways and flat entrance thresholds for level access.

“Expansive double-glazed windows and doors connect each residence to the surrounding gardens providing an immediate connection to nature.”

Mr Berlyn said the residences in Elmsdale, situated in the heart of Bowral, would appeal largely to downsizers looking for freestanding single-level homes offering great internal proportions, a low maintenance yard and within a boutique complex all just minutes from Bowral’s vibrant town centre.

“One of the biggest drawcards for buyers in the area is the location of Elmsdale in the village of Bowral, with easy access to a huge range of cafes, restaurants and shops,” he said.

“Elmsdale also benefits from being only minutes away from many nature walks, national parks, historic villages, award winning wineries and beautiful gardens that are ever-changing through the seasons.”

Mr Berlyn said the Southern Highlands had seen significant demand during and post COVID from Sydney-based buyers.

“We are still seeing strong demand across multiple projects, with Sydney buyers from affluent areas seeking a weekend retreat or eventual retirement home in Bowral,” he said.

“This, combined with the demand from local downsizers coming off larger acreage lots, is creating strong interest in a well-designed project such as Elmsdale.”

Birdy is a subsidiary of Tribeca, one of Australia’s leading builders, who have successfully developed and delivered over 6,000 homes in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

The residences in Elmsdale are expected to be complete in the first half of this year.
