A prized location. A legendary architect. An iconic harbour view. This is Hillside: the height of Vaucluse living.


Hillside isn’t merely an address. It’s where you’ve truly arrived. A palatial gated estate comprising four extraordinary houses, where every square inch is an ode to the finest that life can offer. A sweeping embrace of beauty, luxury and prestige, with majestic views across iconic Sydney Harbour, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime home on a spectacular scale.

Designed by an elite team, including the legendary Italian Architect Luigi Rosselli; Interior Designer, Handelsmann+Khaw; and Landscape Designer, Dangar Barin Smith. All three of which are winners of this year’s VL50: Vogue Living’s Best Australian Architects and Designers of 2024.


Every aspect of Hillside has been immaculately considered – one that began as a carte blanche brief. A rare undertaking by the developer who has trusted Luigi Rosselli’s skills and reputation, giving him full creative licence to do what he does best: sketch whatever he desires on his famous translucent yellow paper. The result is a masterful composition with four grand houses crafted to elevate every moment, and special areas for every occasion and mood. 

Hillside’s two palatial six-bedroom houses, Terreno (Earth) and Mare (Sea), feature unique floorplans that prioritise open indoor-outdoor layouts to welcome an expanse of natural light and horizon-deep sightlines, stretching to the Harbour Bridge. The two semi-attached residences, Cielo (Sky) and Luce (Light), each boast four spacious bedrooms overlooking landscaped gardens and a full width terrace that celebrate the postcard harbour views.


Inspired by his childhood memories of holidays in Italy, Rosselli has designed these enduring      modern residences on a foundation of strength and beauty. His signature architectural features, craftsmanship, and quality are imbued throughout. Rammed earth columns, handmade terracotta brise soleil, forged steel spiral staircases and a copper-clad roof, are built to age with grace. Bougainvillea-covered pergolas and sub-tropical gardens are carefully crafted by Dangar Barin Smith to offer shade and privacy. 

Handelsmann + Khaw’s long-standing partnership with Luigi Rosselli Architects ensures a beautifully seamless experience at every turn. A sublime blend of curved walls and French doors, coupled with a light and airy openness that flows throughout. Materials are warm and tactile; their timeless appeal is in keeping with Hillside’s enduring grandeur. And at such a majestic scale, every element is nothing less than the height of sophistication. Among them, custom marble vanities, elevated to sculptural masterpieces fit for a palace.
