Honouring Nature


These meticulously crafted homes offer enhanced liveability.

A supremely stylish enclave of 38 boutique SHAWOOD terrace homes, Ravenwood is an award-winning development nestled within The Hermitage at Gledswood Hills, a premier 320-hectare master-planned community set among rolling green hills and scenic open spaces, just 55km from Sydney’s CBD.

SHAWOOD by Sekisui House sets new standards for human-centric design, offering a complete lifestyle choice. The striking, natural architecture of these SHAWOOD residences is in harmony with their natural surrounds and each home has been crafted with meticulous attention to detail.

“Yutaka is the Japanese word for the richness of experience and is one of the core values of SHAWOOD,” says Craig D’Costa, General Manager, The Hermitage and NSW Home Building. “Ravenwood’s contemporary terraces are designed and constructed to align with five key performance elements: health and wellbeing, thermal comfort, acoustic balancing and energy efficiency. This is evident throughout, from the considered placement of windows to capture surrounding views and natural light to the use of advanced draught control detailing to minimise energy use. It’s this performance that provides enhanced levels of general comfort and liveability that stems from a philosophy honouring nature, quality and longevity, creating timeless homes that function effortlessly.”

The unique SHAWOOD construction system uses engineered laminated timber posts and beams which are combined systematically to achieve the exact and most efficient load-bearing design. These structural timbers are inherently strong and capable of spanning wide spaces to deliver internal architectural features synonymous with SHAWOOD home. All structural timbers are eco-certified, guaranteeing they are sustainably sourced, and are chosen for their superior quality, consistency and longevity.

“Structural components are manufactured in Sekisui House’s own Manufacturing and Quality Control Centre in NSW, delivering millimetre- perfect calibration, and are designed to lock together in a structure of extreme accuracy, rigidity and strength. This distinctive offering brings precision to the Australian housing industry and delivers a substantial improvement in quality and reliability,” says Craig.

The distinctive exterior of each SHAWOOD terrace comprises an advanced cavity wall system, allowing the home to breathe, promoting airflow and managing moisture levels. This increased airflow delivers natural cooling during summer and maintains stable comfort all year round.

Combining form and function, the overall design of the home speaks of contemporary living. There is an organic sense of consideration, efficient and thoughtful spatial design, and intelligent function.

Spanning across two stories, double-height voids emphasise natural night, while integrating living spaces and functional design create effortless connectivity with landscape zones. These technologically advanced homes deliver the best day-to-day living experience.

All SHAWOOD terraces feature floor plans that are intuitive, premium appointments, Fisher & Paykel kitchen appliances, neutral internal and external colour palettes as well as lush landscaped garden spaces.

Craig goes on to comment, “Sekisui House is proud to announce the latest release of terraces is not available at The Hermitage, Gledswood Hills. Donohue’s View Parkside Terraces is an idyllic collection of tranquil designer homes embraced by neighbouring six-hectare Gledsood Hills Reserve while conveniently within walking distance to the brand new primary school and Gledswood Village, a proposed boutique retail and entertainment precinct. Priced from just $651,000 these three- and four-bedroom contemporary terraces are immaculately crafted and showcase all the unique innovations synonymous with SHAWOOD’s award winning pedigree.
