belle & lily’s selection of meticulously planned, generously proportioned one, two and three- bedroom residences suit a diverse range of lifestyle requirements. many offer a two-storey configuration, much like a terrace or maisonette. this provides separation between living and accommodation areas and achieves a sense of space and privacy seldom found in inner city living.
the majority of residences enjoy large expanses of north-facing glazing, enhancing city views while flooding both the living spaces and master bedrooms with natural light. this maximises warmth in winter while strategically placed shading blocks out the hot summer sun.
