Just imagine what life might be like in a brand new apartment designed around your specific needs. It would be completely accessible. It would include the very latest in assistive technology. It would be wonderfully private, yet provide overnight support in a separate onsite apartment.
Ability Apartments Guildford is just such a place.
Opened in May 2019, its 15 purpose built rental apartments have been designed for individuals between the ages of 18 to 64 who have high physical support needs and a desire to live more independently; the entire building is devoted to SDA or Specialist Disability Accommodation. Located in close proximity to the Guildford shopping precinct, the complex is well positioned for tenants to access community services and transport options, while Parramatta is just 5Km to the north.
Each apartment offers the highest level of accessibility with smart-home features; generous, open plan living spaces are framed by floor-to-ceiling glass that floods the home with natural light, while expansive terraces that seamlessly extend the interiors to the outdoors. Height adjustable benchtops and a score of other thoughtful design features make the kitchens a joy for meal prep, and each accessible bedroom includes a smartly finished ensuite with similar functionality.
An expansive and accessible rooftop terrace crowns the building; bathed in sunlight throughout the day, it includes a barbecue area, communal room for family and friends and spectacular views across the district.
Another key feature of Ability Apartments Guildford is the onsite overnight support based out of a separate, dedicated apartment. The development consists of 2 x1 bedroom, 9 x 2 bedroom, 1 x 3 bedroom and 2 x 2 + study; each apartment offers secure parking and lift access. Purpose-built as SDA, these apartments have platinum level certification under the NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation Guidelines.
