In a unique setting between Sydney Harbour and the Northern Beaches, the award-winning Village at Balgowlah exemplifies the laid-back luxe of the coastal lifestyle.
The new town square On the site of a 1960s shopping centre, The Village reimagines the traditional town square as a stylish hub for its residents and the local community. Housing a variety of specialty shops, Coles, cafes and apartments, it offers an attractive, accessible place to meet, shop and live.
Coastal luxe Set amid spacious native gardens and surrounding the generous swimming pool, the residences optimise light as well as district and ocean views, maximising the natural advantages of the site.
Green living Green features are built into the design of The Village, like the swimming pool’s innovative heating system, which recycles waste heat from the shopping centre’s air-conditioning. Such elements combine with the reduced need for driving that comes with appealing and carefully designed local shops, providing a healthy, green lifestyle for the community.
