Queensland-based group Metro Property Development has launched Stage One of Parvenu, its $260 million town home and apartment development on part of the Strathfield Golf Club site.
The project is Metro’s first major apartment development in New South Wales.
Located at 84 Centenary Drive, Parvenu will comprise 50 luxury townhouses and 178 apartments designed by high‐profile architects Marchese + Partners.
Stage One includes the townhouses, offering spacious three and four bedroom designs split over two or three levels, measuring 251 to 303 square metres. Some of these come with expansive views of the adjacent golf course and prices range from $1.85 to $2.4 million plus.
“It’s no surprise that we’ve already had a lot of people snapping up these town homes, first and foremost being keen golfers who jumped at the idea of living right on the golf course,” said Phil Leahy, of Metro.
Metro has already sold 28 townhouses, with only 22 remaining.
“We’re seeing a broad mix of buyer types drawn to the tranquil location and easy lifestyle that comes with living in a sizeable home without the upkeep of a traditional house. Buyers also have the added bonus of being within close reach of transport links, shopping centres, parks and schools,” he said.
Comfort and luxury are key elements of the design, with town homes showcasing open entertaining spaces with kitchens flowing into both dining and living rooms which have gas fireplaces with a tile finish.
Large folding glass doors seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor living spaces, opening to decked terraces that have been tailored to the Australian lifestyle with fitted barbeques and lawns with hedges that border the pristine golf course.
All townhouses feature generously‐sized bedrooms laid with plush carpets and come with both built‐ in and walk‐in wardrobes. Ground floor master bedrooms also enjoy a view of the golf course through floor to ceiling glass pane windows.
Most homes include at least one ensuite and bathroom furnished with freestanding baths and finished with stone benchtops. Buyers have the choice of two timeless colour palettes that combine shades of charcoal and grey or neutral brown and grey.
Construction of the town homes will commence later this year with completion expected in late 2017.
