We are just about to start the tender process for the ambassador and wondering if anyone used the classic facade and if so would you be able to share pics?
We are having the balcony at the back and therefore don’t need a balcony on the front. We are thinking to save some money and use the classic but unsure how it would look finished in person.

I know nothing about your actual situation, but here are the thoughts I weighed up when considering the balcony.
Rear balcony was about $22k, plus tiling.
How often would I really use it?
I have views of the mountains, but my council requires balconies be enclosed on 1 side, and the other 2 to have walls 1.7m high off the floor or screened with fixed screens that point/view upwards. (and direct rain in) All to prevent overlook. Others in my estate have put on balconies, but once screened in they were not as inviting and made the bedroom look dark.
For me i will probably spend more time cleaning it than actual use.
Then there are the mozzies and flies if you want to relax out there. Sure put up fly screens but in the end all these items detract from the bright added space that is shown in the displays.
Having said all that, I'm still in love with the rear balcony and I'm still trying to talk myself out of it.
As for facades, they always seem an expensive option but it's something that you, your friends, family, neighbours and your future buyers we see first. A rear balcony off your bedroom will be for the sole use of the bedrooms occupants.[/quote][/quote]
Does Ambassador 36 rear balcony cost $22K?[/quote][/quote][/quote]
Reading from the Options Price lists, use these as a guide.
Balcony 3.87m x 4.73 incl Stacker Doors
Balcony 3.73m x 4.44 incl Stacker Doors
Balcony 2.85m x 4.44 incl Stacker Doors
Balcony 4.21m x 5.04 incl Stacker Doors
Also, looking at the facade price list, facades with a balcony seem to average $18k more for similar facades that don't have the balcony.[/quote]
Where did you get this price list? Wished we had it when we were at that stage. Wisdom also puts privacy screens by default which defeats the whole purpose of having a balcony. Nevertheless, agree with GLO, you need to check with your local council on balcony requirements.
