Veteran media industry figure John Singleton - now turned property developer - has launched his latest downsizer-friendly Central Coast luxury residential apartment project.

On 17 December, Mr Singleton held a ceremony to commemorate the start of construction of Ravello, which includes 40 apartments and has largely uninterrupted views over Brisbane Water. 

The project includes one, two and three bedroom apartments, and three penthouses. One bedroom apartments begin at $460,000 and two bedroom apartments begin at $830,000.

Monique Anderson, CEO Founder Bonython Property & Investments, John Singleton, Founder Bonython Property & Investments and Paul Anderson, Executive Chairman Bonython Property & Investments break ground on the Ravello development.

Located at Masons Parade, Point Frederick, Mr Singleton said he wants Ravello to “create something never before seen on the Central Coast – residences of absolute beauty that raise the reputation of our entire region.”

Paul Anderson, chairman of Mr Singleton’s Bonython Property & Investment Group, said: “Ravello is the ultimate example of superior standards and world-class living.”

“Every detail of this development speaks quality and class.”

“From the scale and comfort of every apartment, to the design and positioning of each residence to capitalise on the spectacular water views, to the flawless finishes that include European Oak, custom fittings and individual temperature-controlled wine storage in every apartment, we’re changing people’s expectations of how we can live.”

The project is located on the site of the former Montis Ashore takeaway seafood shop, at 63-65 Masons Parade.

The apartments' flooring includes cross-cut limestone, pure wool carpet and European Oak, while bathrooms feature cast stone baths and kitchens have granite and quartzite benchtops.

The launch of Ravello follows the completion of Mr Singleton’s multi-use Bonython Tower development in the heart of the Gosford CBD. Bonython Tower won a number of major building awards this month, via its builder Stevens Construction.

As a project which is being marketed as being suitable for downsizers, Ravello is listed on Downsizing.com.au

Construction of the project is now underway and due to finish early to mid-2021.
