Grand Reve is the latest offering from Kassis Homes, set to transform Sydney’s north-western suburb of Castle Hill. Billed as the most prestigious development ever offered in the Hills area, Grand Reve is a collection of 196 contemporary apartments across two towers.

Featuring studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, as well as split-level townhouse-style dwellings, Grand Reve has been designed by Turner Studio with a particular focus on outdoor spaces.

“We’re really urbanising the concept of the backyard and integrating that into an urban housing scheme that sits in a suburban context and, therefore, I think we’re going to end up with a unique project and a unique product,” Turner Studio design director Nick Turner said.

A landscaped podium garden, which connects the two towers, features seating pods, resident dining areas, and views across the Hills District.

Adam Sparkes, associate director at McGrath Projects, says a mix of first-home buyers, upgraders and downsizers are looking to the area – with the common link that they want an apartment with a harbourfront level of quality. “The downsizers are coming from the traditional large-scale family homes in West Pennant Hills, Cherrybrook and the immediate suburb area,” he says. “They’re gravitating to luxury as a point of difference.”

Altogether, the project will deliver residents three communal garden areas, totalling over 2,000sqm of open space. Below the two towers is the project’s brick base, which houses the open-air concierge, designed with weather-protected corridors and integrated gardens.

“The brick base is a unifying form and is representative of the Sydney suburban vernacular”, Turner Studio said. Designed to catch the light, the warm-coloured bricks have been laid to form ornate patterns across the lower levels.

Light in colour, the towers themselves have been designed as sculptural elements, with soft, rounded corners and a feminine form to respond to the spaces within and the views beyond.


Designed to suit a wide demographic, the project features a range of layouts, including studios, split-level townhouse-style dwellings, terrace apartments with generous outdoor spaces and penthouse sky-residences.

Each residence offers generously-sized floorplans, open-plan living and dining and 2.7-metre high ceilings, while kitchens feature luxuriously-appointed Wolf gas appliances, engineered stone benchtops and brass fixtures.

The combination of substantial forecasted population growth, an existing and expanding retail hub, and the newly established Metro line are all drawcards for buyers to make the move to Castle Hill.

Marketed by McGrath Projects, prices at Grand Reve begin from $560,000 for the 92sqm studio apartment.
