O U R V I S I O N Fairwood Rise at Rouse Hill, is committed to quality design to ensure purchasers enjoy a relaxed environment with the security of knowing that their most important investment, their family home, is of the highest standard. The vision for Fairwood Rise is that, through these guidelines, purchasers can be assured that only the best streetscapes will be approved and with the careful selection of materials, colours and landscaping, these Design Guidelines will ensure your home is surrounded by others of the same high standard.

F A C A D E S E L E C T I O N To enhance the quality of the streetscape, all homes in Fairwood Rise at Rouse Hill must incorporate a porch, portico, verandah, blade walls or other architectural features to the front facade in order to provide articulation and design interest to the overall development. Facade selection must be of a modern or contemporary nature and of non-specific period architecture, which means homes that display a historic style such as federation or colonial, for example, may not be permitted.

T H E D E S I G N Through discussions with your Sales Consultant, they will be able to guide you towards the home design that best suits your lifestyle and budget. These guidelines will ensure that your facade finishes and colours combine harmoniously with each other and the adjoining homes. On the rare occasion that your selection is identical with one already approved on a neighbouring lot, you may be asked to make slight modifications. This could be as simple as nominating an alternate facade, colours or material selection.

Base facades from builder’s range are not permitted.

Period architecture is not permitted

Architecture should be contemporary

This is further detailed in the “Colours and Materials ” section of this guideline.

Streetscape with a variety of facades

Aluminium sliding windows will not be permitted to street elevations.

C O R N E R LO T S • Corner lots are high impact lots as they have two street frontages which are highly visible. •  Special attention to both street frontages must be given to homes selected for corner lots in the form of articulation, materials and finishes. •  Architectural elements, materials and colours selected to the main facade must be introduced to the secondary frontage. Examples of these could be verandahs, pergolas or projecting elements which can be extended and wrapped around as features to the secondary facade. •  Attention to the type and style of windows must be given to ensure uniformity of primary and secondary facades. •  Corner treatment needs to be extended approximately 4m to 5m behind the primary front setback to achieve quality corner presentation to both street frontages.

C O L O U R S A N D M A T E R I A L S A W E L L D E S I G N E D A N D A R T I C U L AT E D F A C A D E C O N T R I B U T E S S U B S TA N T I A L LY TO T H E S T R E E T C H A R A C T E R O F A C O M M U N I T Y . By utilising a mix of materials in a variety of ways, visual interest is created when viewing your home from the street. Our key objective is to have an estate that is visually cohesive and ultimately provides high quality streetscapes. The colour selection for your home must be complementary to the local area and reflect muted natural and earthy tones. Colours should take their hue from the Australian environment, with accents of colour to architectural features only.

When building on corner lots, consider both street frontages. Continue materials and finishes that are used on the main street frontage around to the secondary street facade. Architectural detailing and finishes should extend approximately 4m to 5m behind the primary front setback.


The front of your home should incorporate: • A variation of materials, both light weight and masonry (masonry must be the dominant material in either face brick or render) • A variation of colours and materials • A feature material eg: stone, tile, feature face brick, render or light weight cladding

4m – 5m

The facade to your home must not: • Be entirely face brick

G A R A G E To ensure that the garage is not dominant and does not overpower the rest of the front facade, the garage will need to be setback a minimum 1000mm from the main body of the house. The garage door is to either be panel lift or tilt-a-door style.

Light weight material

All homes in Fairwood Rise must have a minimum of two materials, finishes or colours incorporated into the front facade. These materials or finishes to be incorporated into the front facades can be stone, tile, light weight cladding, render or feature brick panels .




• Well articulated roof designs are strongly encouraged for Fairwood Rise. •  Hipped and gabled roofs are to have a minimum roof pitch of 22.5 degrees. Other roof styles such as skillion and parapet style facades will be considered on their merit. •  Not only for visual street appeal but to also assist with your energy requirements for Council approval, all homes in Fairwood Rise will be required to have 450mm eaves as a minimum. However, there will be instances where this may be waived, such as building on zero lots or where the design and facade shows architectural merit by not having eaves.

F A S C I A / G U T T E R S / D OWN P I P E S •  Fascia and gutter colours should match the colour of the roof material to emphasise the roof and eaves as a unified building element. • Downpipes should not be highlighted and should be coloured to blend in with the adjacent walls.

L E T T E R B OX E S •  Letterboxes must be masonry with either face brick or render to match your home.  Freestanding metal or timber letterboxes will not be permitted. H A R D S C A P E A R E A •  Minimising the amount of hardscape area to the front yard will lead to a softer landscape feel to the development. •  Driveways and paths to the front entry are the only hardscape areas permitted in the front yard. Driveways must comply with Council’s Development Control Plan and paths must be a maximum width of 1000mm.

Yes No NA

Does your home have a contemporary facade and not resemble any period style architecture? Is your home energy efficient and have 450mm eaves? If your home is on a corner lot, does the architectural features/materials/finishes address both street frontages? Is your garage fitted with either a panel lift or tilt-a-door?

Is the pitch of the roof on your new home a minimum of 22.5 degrees?

Have you included a minimum of two materials, finishes or colours to the front facade of you new home? Have you selected a roof tile that is low profile?

S O F T S C A P E A R E A •  We recommend extensive use of soft landscaping to the front yard.

•  Boundaries should be defined by the planting of screening plants or low hedges along boundaries. The selection of drought tolerant plant species is highly encouraged.

Have you selected a roof colour (tile or Colorbond) from the recommended range?

Does the fascia and gutter match the roof colour?

S C R E E N I N G •  To minimise the visual impact of unattractive building service equipment, where practicable, items such as hot water systems, air conditioning units, garbage bins and rainwater tanks should not be visible from the street. •  Where this is not achievable through design, timber or metal screening will be required to limit the visual impact of these services. This should be completed as part of your landscape works. R E TA I N I N G WA L L S •  Retaining walls need to have a positive impact on the development and complement your home. •  All retaining walls in the front yard or in areas visible from the street are to be masonry with colours and finishes matching those on the front facade of your home. Timber retaining walls, including sleepers or logs are not permitted to the front of your block or in areas that are visible from the street or public areas.

Is the brick colour you selected for your new home in keeping with the recommended range? Does your driveway finish and colour comply with the recommended pattern and colour? Is there a minimum clearance of 500mm between the driveway and side boundary for planting Is your letterbox of masonry construction and does the colour/finish complement your homes finishes? Are the materials chosen for your retaining walls in keeping with the Design Guidelines? Are your services (air conditioning unit, hot water system, bins) screened from the street? Is your inter-allotment fencing timber panels with Grey Ridge lapped timber fencing?
