Purchasers have come out in strong numbers for the official public launch of Lumia Lux, which has so far secured over $35 million worth of apartment sales in The Orchards, a lifestyle inspired $1 billion master planned community in Sydney’s Norwest.

38 apartments have been purchased to date, with prices ranging from $650,000 to $2.5 million for a penthouse.

David Lee, Sales Manager, Developments and Communities at The Orchards at Sekisui House said the public launch result was pleasing for Sekisui and demonstrates that the market is still quite strong for high-quality lifestyle apartments.

“More than fifty percent were local buyers living within a five-kilometre radius from Norwest, as well as investors from across Sydney including Sylvania Waters in the south and Randwick in the east,” he said.

“First home buyers, down sizers selling their larger homes and property investors seeking Norwest’s strong rental returns secured most of the designer apartments. Two beds were the most popular, priced around $830,000 with an average size of 80 sqm.”

“Feedback from purchasers at Lumia Lux is that they are comparing The Orchards to other projects in Norwest and Castle Hill. They are happy to be securing a premium apartment in The Orchards with Sekisui House, a well-established global brand, as well as the fact that construction has already commenced for Lumia (Stage 3 of the masterplan), which provides peace of mind for purchasers that the project will be completed on time,” he added.

Designed by Turner, Lumia Lux’ comprises 127 apartments featuring 11 one-bedroom, 96 two-bedroom, 17 three-bedroom apartments, along with three four-bedroom penthouses.

“The appetite for lifestyle apartments continues to grow as more and more people seek an active and healthy lifestyle close to home," Lee added.

"The tranquil nature focused environment that The Orchards affords is very appealing and is a place where people want to live, work, and enjoy their lives."

A key feature of Lumia Lux is the outdoor pool and pavilion. This pavilion is appointed with a collection of communal and intimate dining and lounge areas that overlook the pool and linear park. Embracing the natural setting, the pool and pavilion have been designed to embrace the organic forms found in nature.

Lumia means resembling ‘life in a new light’, with an infinity water edge, floating lounges and green landscaped roof further heightening the developments connection to nature.

Prices start from $650,000 for a one-bedroom apartment spanning 62 sqm and over $2.4 million for the four-bedroom penthouse which covers 176 sqm.

Each apartment takes advantage of the district views and green outlooks with large format windows and oversized balconies.

Set on a nature site with a creek and cycle/walkways, The Orchards will feature recreational amenities including a 1.4-hectare public park, playgrounds, break-out green spaces, outdoor lagoon pool, large indoor fitness centre and indoor heated swimming pool.

Underpinning all aspects of the design is the Japanese concept of ‘satoyama’. This term refers to connecting people through ‘ribbons of green’ and is demonstrated in a lush green spine throughout the estate to enrich the lives of residents.

The Orchards is a master planned community spread across 8.1 hectares, that when complete will comprise 1300 generously proportioned apartments.

Located approximately 31-kilometres north-west of Sydney’s CBD, nestled in Norwest, it is 800-metres from Norwest Metro Train Station and 600-metres from Norwest Marketown and Norwest Business Park.
