Kempenfeldt Avenue, Sorrento was an exciting development for the Ultimo team, and a different brief to our regular development projects. This project brief was for an Over 55’s development in a suburb where existing residents could downsize, or an opportunity to move to a more affluent suburb for retirement. Designed by Mikasa Designs, the homes were designed to be liveable for the Over 55’s market, with future consideration for living requirements of the elderly, such as ensuite, master bedroom and living areas to the ground floor for easy accessability.
This site provided a challenge due to the natural terrain of the suburb of Sorrento, and working with challenging blocks can sometimes guide the design. The site was sloping and elevated, and required extensive limestone retaining to enable the blocks full potential to be maximised for size, density and ocean views. Taking this approach allowed for 5 new homes to be constructed on the block – and on completion the development comprised of 4 prestigious townhouses with ocean views, and a single storey villa.
The elevations are a stand out for this development, as are the ocean views obtained from each home. The development is finished with luxurious, high-end fittings including Smeg appliances, full height tiling throughout, high-end tapware and fittings, ducted air conditioning, timber screening for privacy, timber look garage doors, and this is all complimented with mature landscaping to provide an established look which suits the surrounding suburb.
We loved the challenge of this block and were extremely happy with the final product. To see the full photo gallery of this development please click here.
