Chatswood Rose, comes into its own.

“While the location is great and will appeal to a particular demographic, a key feature of the development is the landscape design,” he says. “We’ve included a number of outdoor areas that cater to different purposes, such as entertaining or reflection. The aim is to give residents options for how they want to spend their time.”

Interior designer for the development, Gil Candido, says the site was challenging as it’s near the rail line and the Pacific Highway.

“However, we’ve provided a high podium on the second level so all apartments are lifted away from the noise,” he says. “The podium also has a communal landscaped area that people can appreciate as they go to and from their apartments.”

The communal landscaped areas feature fruit, vegetable and herb gardens and are designed to pick up on different themes of the nearby Willoughby parks.

“The apartments also have winter gardens, which are like an enclosed balcony, that give people an extension of their living room,” Candido says. “The interiors feature high-quality finishes and materials including engineered stone and timber flooring, along with Miele appliances and lots of floor-to-ceiling glass.”

Candido says the material palette is designed to reflect the Roseville area, which has lots of federation, brick and tile houses. Fins, added on the outside of the balconies, use terracotta finish that picks up on the local use of terracotta.

While Chatswood and Roseville both offer plenty with their abundance of shops, cafes, restaurants and open spaces, residents will also find it easy to spend time within Chatswood Rose itself.

CBRE director Colin Griffin says the development’s green spaces are particularly appealing.

“There are two garden areas on the rooftop of which both look towards the Chatswood skyline,” he says. “One features a tiled children’s play area so adults can get together in one section while the children can safely play under supervision in another. The other has a barbecue that is available for all residents to use.”

Griffin says the barbecue area makes it easy if residents don’t want to go out to eat but still want to get together with friends.

“The podium level also features private landscaped gardens,” he says. “There are five different areas here that will appeal to people who want to get together in a quieter setting.”

Residents also have easy access to the many nearby parks and recreation grounds, including Lane Cove National Park.

For those needing to get to other parts of Sydney there are a number of convenient transport options. It is around a 10-minute walk to either Chatswood or Roseville stations while the nearby M40 bus gets you into the CBD within 40 minutes.

Griffin says Chatswood is becoming more a commercial area rather than residential.

“Therefore areas on the fringe of Chatswood are becoming more popular for residential buyers,” he says. “People can easily get in and out of Chatswood rather than live in the heart of it.”

He adds the area is also attracting attention because of the $20 billion being spent on infrastructure developments in the surrounding areas.

“We have the Sydney Metro going in as well as a new hospital and school at Lindfield,” Griffin says. “Chatswood Rose has particular appeal to young families who are keen to live in areas that are close to good schools and this area is close to 10 of the top 70 schools in the state.”

The area is also attractive to investors, with projections for the population to grow 24 per cent over the next 10 years. Meanwhile, 26 per cent of Sydney’s jobs are located within 30 minutes of Chatswood Station.

Chatswood Rose has the best of both worlds, Griffin says.

“You can go into Chatswood to enjoy the urban environment with its retail and entertainment offerings but you’re also right next to a large number of parks that offer a more tranquil and serene environment.”
