As the old adage goes: location is everything. And that’s especially the case when it comes to investing hard earned dollars into an apartment development.

Buyers want to know they’re within close distance to all of the essentials, not only to feel part of a community, but to have everything they need at their fingertips.

At the end of the day, it’s usually a second-to-none location that sets an apartment development apart, and why an increasing number of downsizers, first-home buyers and young professionals are turning to this style of living.

A new development in the leafy upper north shore suburb of Turramurra is no exception.

‘Ashton Hill’ is just a five minute walk from the suburb’s train station, while the bustling village-like atmosphere of the main strip of shops featuring gourmet food provedores, cafes, restaurants and boutique stores is just a short stroll away.


It’s also close to the Macquarie Park and Chatswood major shopping districts and top Sydney schools such as Knox Grammar, Barker College, Abbotsleigh and Pymble Ladies’ College.

With leading architecture firm Mackenzie Architects International at the helm, every feature has been considered and catered for at this luxurious five-storey complex to reflect the site’s natural beauty.

Ashton Hill is designed to co-exist with the picturesque hillside setting, and this is achieved through a neutral colour palette, from the sandstone walls to woodland grey fences, awnings, windows and doors.

While bright green planters line the outdoor walkway to provide a splash of greenery, and complement the towering gum trees surrounding the complex.

Buyers have the choice of one, two or three bedroom apartments, meticulously designed by interior designers The Uncarved Block. 

A crisp, earthy colour scheme has been adopted inside, while only the finest quality finishes have been used throughout; think Miele appliances, sleek kitchens with plenty of bench and storage space, and polished, sophisticated bathrooms.


Sliding doors open up from the combined kitchen, dining and living area into spacious terraces, allowing residents to transform the area into the ideal entertainment space, or alternatively soak in the beautiful landscape in the perfect retreat.

Meanwhile, all of the apartments come with car parking, a rare touch when it comes to apartment-living.
