Pale bricks are punctuated by accents of black, whilst integrated breeze blocks pay homage to the modernist character of the neighbourhood. Featuring strong articulation, the facade’s rectilinear form is softened by cascading vegetation and climbing vines. The generosity of the landscaping allows the building to nestle in seamlessly with its verdant surroundings.

Enveloped in lush greenery, Fellowship’s expansive courtyards have been designed to create a sense of sanctuary and repose. Select homes feature sizeable pools, allowing residents to enjoy a tranquil holiday escape in their very own backyards. The courtyards spill directly out from the living areas, forming indoor-outdoor living environments that cater perfectly to the entertainer’s lifestyle.

The art of simplicity is one that has been mastered within the finely curated interiors of the 20 Fellowship residences. Defined by a sense of natural beauty, the finishes palette comprises texturally rich yet pared-back timeless materials including warm timber joinery, natural stone surfaces, herringbone timber floors, stone freestanding baths, glass brick and fluted stone details. The result is a refined yet neutral canvas that residents will be able to colour effortlessly with their own treasured pieces.

Vast and generously proportioned with large floor plans, each home is afforded with expansive windows that allow natural light to filtrate through abundantly whilst providing a tranquil green vista with seamless connection to outdoor terraces and courtyards.

Fostering genuine convenience and daily delight, Fellowship has been appointed with a series of thoughtful, enriching features. Integrated bars and wine fridges, fireplaces, custom wardrobe joinery with a built-in vanity, a key drop at the entrance and plentiful storage throughout are just some of the details designed to cultivate an unrivalled living experience.
