Watersedge is an opportunity to secure a beautifully appointed apartment home that still offers spacious living and entertaining areas, as well as a design that speaks ‘luxury’ and ‘high-end,” Mr Zivanovic said.
Far from a retirement home in a traditional sense, Watersedge at Bayview is designed to set new benchmarks in over 50s living. Designed by the renowned Lesiuk Architects, the project has been created to offer high-end luxury with an eco-friendly design sensibility and a focus on low-maintenance living.
