Among the kitchen fixtures are Gaggenau appliances — a fully integrated french door fridge/freezer, built-in microwave and an integrated dishwasher. The kitchen benchtop features 30mm natural stone. The opulent bathrooms will include frameless shower screens and custom vanities; with designer free-standing baths in the ensuites. The oversized balcony will also include a built-in barbecue with LPG connection points. Other luxury appointments include video security systems and four secure basement car parks with number plate recognition access.

A resort-style pool, sauna, steam room, large gym with commercial grade equipment, watercraft storage facilities, lush tropical gardens and private indoor and outdoor garden zones will be among the communal facilities on offer. Mosaic is incorporating a high-end artisan style cafe into the streetscape of the project, meaning your barista-made morning coffee will never be far away. Along with this, owners will have use of a private pontoon on the Maroochy River.

When it comes to inspirational design, Avalon by Mosaic has set very high standards. Mosaic recently won the Design Excellence Award for Avalon at the annual UDIA awards. The development has also achieved the UDIA’s 6-leaf Envirodevelopment Certification for environmental sustainability.
