Continuing with the clever design of the block, a total of seven apartments were accommodated on a site that would normally only fit six, yet it still retains a sense of uncluttered space. Also high on the list of design requirements was the need to ensure that the seven individual neighbouring properties had a high degree of privacy and security. Further enhancing security, the complex is gated and secure with intercom to each apartment. NBN fibre has been installed in every apartment instead of copper. Other notable features include the central driveway which passes under the upper floor apartments, and the face brick arch to the front elevation.

The interior design continues the precept of spaciousness with each apartment consisting of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, living, meals, alfresco or balcony and storeroom.
