Positioned in a fast-growing area to the north-west of Sydney’s CBD, The Hugh, North Kellyville is the perfect opportunity for those who are looking for a change of pace.
Developer Kanebridge and multi-disciplinary firm Zhinar Architects have worked together to bring this project to fruition. The façade of brick and timber exists in harmony with the surrounding leafy environment while gorgeous landscaping elements ensure the built environment maintains a strong connection to nature.
The development team has strived to provide fittings and fixtures of a higher quality than is usually found in projects in the area. For example, in the kitchens, a full suite of European accessories ensures cooking is a breeze while the stone island bench creates a stunning focal point.
Similar elements of stone are on display in the bathrooms where a freestanding bathtub takes pride of place. In select apartments, ensuites connect to master bedrooms where the neutral colour palette beckons residents to inject the space with individual style.
A central courtyard connects this stunning collection of homes. Equipped with modern barbecues and comfortable seating, it’s the perfect place to host friends and family — and there’s even a playground for kids to explore.
“In terms of dollar value, the prices are similar but the apartment sizes at The Hugh are larger by comparison,” Marwan Rahme, Kanebridge managing director, says. “While the apartments are targeted for the discerning homeowner, we are pleased to be able to offer the collection at a much lower price point than the market average for Kellyville.”
Marwan has been developing property in Kellyville for nearly two decades, and he believes Kellyville is the new Parramatta. “Kellyville and its surrounds have an abundance of beautiful parklands, shopping centres, dining and entertainment venues, and great schools,” he says.
Just moments from The Hugh’s doorstep, new shopping centre North Kellyville Square will be home to a wealth of outlets such as a Woolworths and BWS, an Anytime Fitness gym, and a variety of eateries and fresh grocers.
Norwest Business Park is only an 8-minute drive away. Originally established to support the people working on the three infrastructure projects in the area, the business park has grown into a fully serviced and self-sufficient hub in its own right. It has a post office and banks, child care centres and dry cleaners, as well as a thriving dining scene and two shopping centres.
A range of high-quality educational opportunities exist within a short walk, bike ride or drive from The Hugh. Ironbark Ridge Public School and Rouse Hill High School are just 3 minutes away by car, while St Mark’s Catholic College, Kellyville Ridge Public School and John XXIII Catholic Primary School are not much further away.
North Kellyville used to be an expanse of sprawling farmland but now it has been transformed into a new precinct, primed for rapid urban growth such as the $8.3 billion development of the Northwest Rail Link — Australia’s very first fully-automated metro rail system.
The suburb is part of the North West Growth Centre, which has significant infrastructure and suburban planning to accommodate 300,000 people over the next 20 years. In addition to this, the main trade population is projected to increase by 3.7% yearly.
