by Sekisui House on 06 05 2016 in SHAWOOD

Sekisui House announces the latest release of their highly innovative SHAWOOD homes at the award-winning masterplanned community ‘The Hermitage’ estate in Gledswood Hills, South West Sydney.

Bringing over 20 years of experience in Japan to Australia, SHAWOOD is now setting a global benchmark for technologically advanced home building. This premium range combines the very best in organic design principles and pre-engineered precision, with visionary building innovations and a deep commitment to liveability.
SHAWOOD was introduced by Sekisui House as part of their dedication to set a new standard of liveable communities and human-centric designed homes in Australia. SHAWOOD launched its first volume tranche of completed homes in 2014 at its flagship residential development in Gledswood Hills, NSW. Demand was so overwhelming that all homes were sold on the weekend of release.

Following this success, Sekisui House has been steadily increasing their production SHAWOOD homes and is on track to deliver its 100th home in Australia. These luxuriously appointed residences offer unique architectural features and comprise a selection of single and double storey designs, each demonstrating SHAWOOD’s intelligent and sophisticated approach to home building.

One of the several defining features underpinning every SHAWOOD home is Sekisui House’s proprietary metal joint and laminated post and beam construction system. This distinctive method of construction brings absolute precision to the Australian home building industry and delivers substantial improvement in quality and reliability. The unique SHAWOOD structure allows for large uninterrupted spans that can create double height voids and generous space to optimise views, light and function, as well as architectural features that only a SHAWOOD home can achieve.

Sekisui House CEO and Managing Director, Toru Abe said the company is encouraged by the way Australians have responded to the SHAWOOD range of homes, “SHAWOOD fills a unique gap in the Australian home building market. Never before has such an innovative, sustainably-led design and advanced construction methods been offered to everyday Australians and it’s no wonder they have embraced this range. This success has provided the impetus for us to forge forward with continued research and product development to further enhance our premium offering.”   

The current release of SHAWOOD homes at The Hermitage presents luxurious living areas defined by seamlessly integrated open plan interiors. Intelligently designed and meticulously crafted to maximise the use of space, each home offers four generous bedrooms, multiple living areas, dedicated study areas and ample storage for everyone in the home. 

Located just one hour’s drive from Sydney’s CBD via the M5 motorway, homebuyers can enjoy all the amazing public benefits The Hermitage has to offer including access to over 35 hectares of parkland, 50km of cycle and pathways and a backdrop to 120 hectares of the finest golf courses in the South West. 

The prestigious collection of four bedroom SHAWOOD homes start from just $734,000 and range up to $839,000 with internal spaces varying from 242.9 square metres to 270.4 square metres. The homes are currently under construction with completion expected by late 2016.
