To help protect the value of your home and neighbourhood, design guidelines set out the minimum requirements for your new home and front garden at The Gables.
The Gables encourages a ‘modern Australian farmhouse’ architectural style which is characterised by; simple roof forms, windows protected by eaves, a covered porch entry and a combination of masonry, lightweight cladding and timber elements.
All home designs must be approved by the Design Review Panel prior to submitting to a Building Certifier or The Hills Shire Council.
