Sylvanvale is committed to offering participants greater choice when deciding where and how they live.
In April 2021, we were excited to announce the construction of a multi-million dollar project, which will give people with disability access to purpose built, luxury home options. The project will accommodate eight people living with disability across six properties.
Each home will be built to accommodate people who require the highest level of Specialist Disability Accommodation, which means that they will be suitable for people with very high support needs to live in. The homes will provide state-of-the-art accessibility and an abundance of open, private and carefully designed living spaces.
The homes will set a new standard, giving people living with disability access to purpose built, luxury home options.
They will also follow universal design principles so that they will be usable by a wide range of people – regardless of mobility, intellectual disability and cognitive ability.
The six new properties will be built on a block of land purchased by Sylvanvale in October 2020 and the adjacent site, which Sylvanvale already owns. The existing site will be demolished as part of the build.
Sylvanvale is thrilled to be working alongside local builders Vista Build, award winning architects Vic Lake Architectural and interior designers Studio Albus, on this exciting project.
The commencement of the project was marked with a special sod turning ceremony on 21 May 2021. The event was attended by special guests including Sutherland Shire Mayor, Councillor Steve Simpson; Ms Melanie Gibbons, Member for Holsworthy and Parliamentary Secretary for Families, Disability and Emergency Services; and Councillor Peter Scaysbrook of the Sutherland Shire Council. Sylvanvale Board members, staff, families and the project team were also in attendance.
