Description

Boasting an ultra-convenient location, the View Apartments in Rockdale are perfectly positioned for amenity. Just 13km from Sydney CBD and 450m from Banksia train station, View Apartments also have a variety of shops within 500m. Tenants will enjoy sweeping views across Botany Bay and the city skyline from the upper levels, or retreat to the elevated courtyard for peaceful enjoyment.

Summer Housing has ten beautifully presented accessible apartments available for occupancy that are peppered throughout the 91-unit private residential development.

The design of the Summer Housing apartments will exceed Livable Housing Australia’s Platinum design level and meet High Physical Support design requirements under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). An onsite Supported Independent Living provider will provide a concierge support service to tenants of the apartments.

At the heart of each apartment is a generously sized, light-filled living and dining area, which opens out onto a private balcony. The modern kitchen has stone bench tops and European appliances. Each apartment also features a built-in robe in the master bedroom, heating and cooling, and carpet throughout. The apartments have an additional space for use as a guest bedroom or study.

The single-level apartments also offer customisable kitchen, laundry and bathroom features and a two-way communications system that enables tenants to contact concierge services in the event of an emergency or for unplanned support. Apartments are assistive technology ready, have an emergency power solution in the event of a power outage and structural provisions for the installation of ceiling hoists.

Each apartment also has access to a car space.

Apartments will be enrolled with the NDIS as Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), 1 bedroom, 1 resident High Physical Support Apartments.

The development is due for completion in April 2019.

How much does it cost to live in these apartments?
