This $14 million development set a new standard for affordable and community housing in Penrith, with a range of studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments for long-term affordable rental. These modern spacious units prove that affordability does not mean compromise or cutting corners in design and features.
We have worked hard to build apartments that everyone would want to live in.
The apartments include:
Open plan kitchen
Provision for air-conditioning
Gas hot water
Floor to ceiling tiling in the bathrooms
Floor coverings and much more
Wentworth is committed to creating homes that encourage residents to build strong ties with their community and create a real sense of belonging and ownership.
Our focus is very much on creating safe, resident-friendly apartments that are suitable for people of any age and need. With environmental sustainability and energy efficiency being central to our vision, we ensured a range of sustainable energy and environmentally friendly features throughout the apartments and surrounding gardens.
Over 50% of the apartments are either adaptable or are capable of being modified. This allows us to tailor the apartments to our tenants' needs.
Parks and gardens
It is all about attention to detail. While Spence, Judges and Jamison Parks are all nearby, Derby includes a common courtyard – well stocked with Australian native plants. The courtyard has developed into a wonderful place to relax for our tenants.
We have also taken care to landscape the front of the apartment block with a mixture of native flowering plants and trees. We recognise that having a garden is an important part of creating a home.
Located less than 3 kms from the heart of Penrith, Derby on Derby Street offers easy access to the town centre and railway station. With a bus stop also at the door, moving around the city centre is easy and hassle free.
Please direct all enquiries about our Derby Street affordable housing apartments to the Wentworth Community Housing Head Office.
