We have a variety of corner two bedrooms (northwest-facing), one bedroom plus study (northwest-facing), and studios (east-facing and west-facing) for sale, priced from $790k through to $1.725m.

Interiors

In a busy, bustling urban environment, your home ought to be the opposite – a space to reflect, rest, and revive; a place where the clamour and clatter of the outside world is kept at bay (or perhaps observed from your balcony).

But it was worth it: there is meaning and enduring beauty in every brick.

The Inner Beauty of The Greenhouse
