New townhouse development The Beaumont sets luxury standard in booming Baulkham Hills
A boutique residential development in Sydney’s north-west is catering to a new and influential market — townhouse buyers.
The Beaumont at Baulkham Hills taps into the needs of modern families as well as an emerging demographic who want to scale down their lives without compromising on space, quality and liveability, according to Ray White Projects.
And more buyers are taking notice of Baulkham Hills, 27km from the Sydney CBD, which is on the verge of transformation propelled by the Sydney Metro rail project.
Developed by Greenview Homes, The Beaumont comprises 28 townhouse residences designed by Mark Shapiro Architects, a firm which specialises in the high-end residential sector.
Director Mark Shapiro says the idea behind The Beaumont was to set a new standard in design and sophistication for the Hills District.
“Rather than the usual cookie-cutter fare, the concept combines functionality with clean, contemporary forms,” he says.
“The palette of robust natural materials such as timber, stone and concrete panels complement the surrounding vegetation and surrounds, whilst the ample glazing, balconies and terraces bring the outside in as well as take advantage of district views.”
Catherine Calavrias has curated the interior design and selection of finishes, which include bold concrete and timber elements such as pale oak floorboards.
“Each home is significantly spacious, allowing the perfect amount of private and public space,” Ms Calavrias says.
“The contemporary and stylish finishes create a warm and homely feel offering something different to many of the current multi-residence projects on the market.”
The hero of the kitchens is an island bar finished with engineered stone, which also features on the splashbacks. The floor-to-ceiling cabinetry is white with bold metallic fixtures. Appliances, including a pyrolytic oven and integrated microwave, are by Smeg.
“The simple yet effective finishes palette also creates a canvas that allows the owner to incorporate their personal touches to through furnishings and colour,” Ms Calavrias says.
“The open-plan kitchen and living room finishes tie in perfectly with the bedroom, ensuite and wardrobe creating a story as you walk through the home.”
Ray White Projects managing director Eddie Mansour says increasingly, buyers are looking for smaller developments rather than big complexes with hundreds of dwellings.
This trend, coupled with the development activity in the Baulkham Hills area, has already attracted significant interest in the project, which is due to launch in the coming weeks.
“Sydney’s north-west growth corridor is an increasingly vibrant, connected and desirable address to call home,” Mr Mansour says.
“Ongoing enhancements to transport, infrastructure and recreational attractions, as well as many great schools, make it a great place to live and a prudent investment for a family.”
As well as all the features of traditional homes, The Beaumont’s floor plans offer versatility. All townhouses have three bedrooms and some include studies or rumpus rooms that can be used as extra bedrooms or living space.
“Today’s buyers are looking for more ways to turn a house into their home,” Mr Mansour says. “A flexible layout means it can be adapted to suit any household’s needs.”
Each townhouse also has two car spaces in a secure garage, with internal access to the home, plus storage.
The Beaumont development is 1.1km from the Norwest Station, one of eight stations scheduled to open in 2019 as part of the first stage of the Sydney Metro project.
The station will service the Norwest Business Park, one of Sydney’s biggest employment hubs. Travelling time to Wynyard Station in the CBD will be 48 minutes. The new rail link will be operating by the time of The Beaumont’s scheduled completion in late 2019.
“Interest in the pre-launch phase has been strong and we expect inquiries to ramp up when the project launches officially,” Mr Mansour says.
The display suite is on-site at The Beaumont — 57 Windsor Road, Baulkham Hills — and is open Thursday to Sunday from 10am-12pm.
