Sekisui House

As well as building homes, we also create intelligent, human-centric, master-planned communities that are designed for today, and for well into the future.  Start discovering now.

The Hermitage

Located in one of Sydney's newest suburbs, Gledswood Hills, The Hermitage is Sekisui House's first masterplanned community in Australia. Combining rich cultural heritage and rare natural beauty, The Hermitage is a flourishing community designed to co-exist with its lush natural surrounds.

Set amongst 120 hectares of golf course and magnificent undulating hills, The Hermitage offers over 2,000 dwellings set across a number of character-filled precincts. At the centre of this vibrant community will be future Gledswood Village, a boutique retail, residential and entertainment precinct that will that cater to the needs of the local and neighbouring communities. Residents will also have access to over 35 hectares of parkland, in excess of 50 kilometres of cycleways and shared pathways and a unique and picturesque three kilometre stretch of Gledswood Hills Reserve, with district views of the Blue Mountains.  Positioned within The Hermitage, is the existing 18 hole Championship Golf Course of Camden Lakeside and future 9 hole Greg Norman signature Golf Course adding elements of leisure and tranquility, establishing Gledswood Hills as one of NSW's most prestigious golfing precincts.

The Hermitage is also exclusively home to Sekisui House's innovative SHAWOOD range of homes. SHAWOOD launched its first completed homes at The Hermitage in 2014 and demand was so overwhelming that all homes were sold on the weekend of release. Following this success, Sekisui House are designing and constructing a new release of SHAWOOD homes for completion in 2017. These luxury-appointed and architecturally featured residences will comprise a selection of single and double storey designs, demonstrating SHAWOOD’s intelligent and sophisticated approach to home building.

Ecco Ripley

Ecco Ripley is a community in the picturesque Ripley Valley, just 9km’s from Ipswich town centre. Landmark peaks and the Bundamba creek merge with an array of green parks, nature strips and wide open spaces.

Sekisui House blend these natural elements with built form to create the iconic Queensland lifestyle of fresh air, community spirit and healthy living.

Ecco Ripley will be unlike any other master-planned development. Becoming a place that residents remember for life.

An environment full of life connected to the community and creating opportunity

You might be wondering where the name Ecco comes from? It comes not only from the echo characteristics of our unique Valley setting, but also as a statement of our 4 key beliefs.


We start with the Environment – a picturesque location that is both relaxed and flowing. Ecco Ripley is a community framed by landmark peaks and hills, where the iconic Bundamba creek merges with an array of green parks, nature strips and wide open spaces.


With the right geography in place, we then turn our attention to creating a Community. That means blending the natural elements with all the things that make a place enjoyable to live in. Public spaces where people say 'Hello' to each other, a proposed town centre that is buzzing with activity, and the sounds of nature greeting you every morning.


Being Connected is a must for Ecco Ripley and we're making sure we include the latest fibre optic technology from the very start. Wi-Fi hotspots will be rolled out right across the development, and high speed internet will be available to every home. Plus you'll also be connected with a proposed Town Centre and Transit Centre and easy access to 2 major highways.


At Ecco Ripley, you've got smart fibre optic technology at your fingertips and opportunities aplenty. A home in Ecco Ripley ticks all the boxes for desirability. Not only in terms of proximity to the proposed town centre, local amenities and employment – but also its beautiful valley location in the heart of one of the fastest-growing corridors in Queensland. It's a place to watch your family and community grow.
