Jarrod Olsen & Co developments are European inspired, using innovative ideas to build homes that are in harmony with the surrounding environment and change of seasons. The Bowral residence is a bespoke development that has been specifically designed to take advantage of the local climate and site aspect. There is an astute use of natural light and Passive House techniques that create warmth in winter and gentle airflow in summer, providing a sanctuary for ultimate enjoyment. 

This development will offer its lucky owner resort-style living in Bowral. In addition to the main residence, which is being built to the Passive House Standard, it also offers a temperature-controlled swimming pool and an adjoining pool house.
