Description

ABILITY APARTMENTS GOSFORD

Sleek and sophisticated are two words rarely used to describe housing options for people with disability who also have high physical support needs. That’s about to change with Ability Apartments Gosford Central. Scheduled to open in mid-2020, this 13 storey residential complex will integrate 10 specially designed two-bedroom rental apartments within the larger complex of 67 luxury units. Smart-home technology and onsite overnight support have finally made the dream a reality for those with disability, providing an independent lifestyle once thought impossible.

Located in the heart of Gosford on the Central Coast, the shopping precinct and train station are practically at the doorstep, while community services, hospitals and waterfront dining options are all within close proximity to the complex. Magical waterways, countless recreational attractions, cafes, boutiques and world-class educational institutions make Gosford the up-and-coming star of the central coast – it’s a wonderful city in which to live, work and play.

Each apartment offers the highest level of accessibility with smart-home features; generous, open plan living spaces are framed by floor-to-ceiling glass that floods the home with natural light, while expansive terraces seamlessly extend the interiors to the outdoors. Height adjustable benchtops and a score of other thoughtful design features make the kitchens a joy for meal prep, and each accessible bedroom includes a smartly finished ensuite with similar functionality; a state-of-the-art split cycle air conditioning system provides the apartment with year round comfort.

An expansive and accessible rooftop terrace crowns the building; bathed in sunlight throughout the day, it includes a barbecue area, communal room for family and friends and spectacular views across Brisbane Water.
