By Michelle Hopkins Sep 2, 2021

Envision living in a sophisticated cityhome, one which has been designed with the utmost care to deliver you a lifestyle that you and your family cherish. Welcome to Rowen W47, where refined city living and the natural beauty of some of the city’s greenest parks await you.

Award-winning Alabaster Homes’ Rowen W47 is an exclusive collection of 36 contemporary one-bedroom garden homes and two- and three-bedroom city homes. Imagined by Formwerks Architectural, its striking West Coast modern exteriors, with its unique façade featuring a textured mix of fibre cement, brick, and metal makes for a bold, eye-catching statement. 

“The homes are located in the heart of the transforming Oakridge neighbourhood,” says Clare Linton, Director of Sales and Marketing, Alabaster Homes. “We have also preserved the native trees that surround the entire project to provide more intimacy and privacy.”

With interiors designed by Laura Melling Studio, these residences offer a seamless blend of warm and contemporary design with wide plank engineered hardwood flooring throughout the main, premium Berber carpeting on the second floor, high ceilings, expansive windows that flood the homes in natural sunlight, and luxurious bathrooms with soaker tubs.

The kitchens are a culinary delight, boasting a premium integrated Fisher & Paykel appliance package, including a gas range with a wok stand, full-height pantry for extra storage, speckled quartz slab countertops with matching backsplash, and a nested stainless-steel sink. 

On those balmy summer nights, catch a sunset from either your rooftop deck, courtyard and patio, all of which are surrounded by lush landscaping offering your own secluded oasis.
