Modern city conveniences, the stunning surrounds of a beautiful, established suburb, and contemporary living – The Ridge in Watson has it all.

The Ridge celebrates its surrounding bushland, starting with the architecture and flowing through to the interior design and colour palette. The look and feel of the overall development, as well as the individual well-designed and built townhouses, is heavily influenced by the majesty of Mount Majura.

“It’s unique to have a new townhouse-only development in such an established suburb, which makes The Ridge attractive to those already living in Watson who want an easier lifestyle with less maintenance while remaining connected to community,” says Wayne Harriden, Executive Director, Project Marketing, Independent.

“The Ridge is as perfect for downsizers who have lived in large homes in the area for decades as it is for first-home buyers who want to live in an established environment that’s only 10 minutes from the heart of the city.”

The townhouses at The Ridge offer an inviting sense of space and openness.

A main attraction of The Ridge is that there are no apartments in the development. “This is rare in the Inner North,” says Wayne. “The feedback we’re getting is that it’s a real bonus because it gives the development a boutique feel.”

All two-bedroom townhouses have sold and, with construction 75 per cent complete, the remaining three and four bedrooms are drawing a great deal of attention. Settlement is expected to be in November.

The design by Oztal Architects is modern but with materials and finishings that celebrate the development’s natural surrounds, including timber tones, corrugated iron and slate coloured brickwork. “It’s about blending in, while still retaining a distinct modern and fresh approach,” says Wayne.

The interior design of the townhouse also responds to the surrounding bushland with expansive double-glazed windows and large sliding patio doors bringing the outdoors in and creating an inviting sense of space and openness.

The Ridge has immediate access to surrounding bushland.

“The townhouses are designed for easy and comfortable living,” says Aaron Ackland, Development Manager at JWLand, the developer behind The Ridge, which has a strong local presence with a national profile. JWLand is the developer behind Founders Lane and Campbell 5.

“Space and storage are maximised, with open-plan layouts offering the flexibility to adapt living spaces to changing lifestyle needs,” says Aaron. “The entertaining areas are large and private.”

The attractive kitchens are equipped with quality appliances, including a Smeg gas cooktop, oven, rangehood and semi-integrated dishwasher.

Modern bathrooms feature contemporary tiling and large glassed-in showers.

The Ridge is being built by Canberra-based Banyan Constructions, known for their commitment to excellence and their track record in completing exceptional residential and commercial developments.

The townhouses enjoy a minimum energy efficiency rating of 7.0 energy efficiency rating, ducted reverse cycle air conditioning system and NBN connectivity.

Bars, eateries and a vibrant lifestyle are nearby.
