Work will soon be under way at the site of a future terrace home development on Main Street, Mount Annan.

Sunland Group recently beat Camden Council in a lengthy court battle over the controversial site next door to Mount Annan Marketplace.

Builders are expected to start work at the greenfields site, which will be called Montaine Residences, tomorrow (December 10).

Sunland managing director Sahba Abedian said Montaine Residences represented "a sensitive and respectful planning approach where leading architecture is combined with beautiful landscape design and amenity".

"A central philosophy of the master plan is to introduce a collection of architectural homes of a size and scale that are respectful to their surroundings," Mr Abedian said.

"This approach has enabled us to create a series of contemporary duplex and terrace home designs that are both appropriate and responsive to their unique location in the retail heart of Mount Annan.

"It has also resulted in the creation of significant amenity for future residents, with more than one-third of the total site area dedicated to green space and landscaping, with mature trees for shade."

The five-and-a-half hectare site will be developed in stages over the next 18 to 24 months to deliver a master-planned neighbourhood of large three and four-bedroom homes.

All homes feature open plan living and dining spaces, kitchens complete with high-gloss cabinetry, stone benchtops and appliances, two bathrooms, a guest powder room and a fully landscaped and fenced backyard.

Sustainable features will also be incorporated into the home designs.

Civil works will continue into the new year, at which time home construction is scheduled to commence.

Mr Abedian said Montaine Residences would be formally launched in March 2020 and is expected to attract strong interest from first home buyers, downsizers and local investors.

"Montaine Residences presents an ultra-connected lifestyle that addresses the significant gap in housing options in Western Sydney," he said.

"Sunland's expertise in delivering medium-density communities and the value we place on beauty and vibrancy provides a high standard of design quality at price points that are within reach of all buyer groups."

Prices are expected to start from $595,000.

Montaine Residences is being jointly marketed by Colliers International and Sunland Group.

Residents and councillors expressed concerns throughout the lengthy approval process about traffic impacts, parking around the site, the character of the site, noise and water.

The 1-5 Main St, Mount Annan: Fairer Outcomes For All Facebook group has been campaigning against "over-development" of the site since 2014.

A spokeswoman took to the page to voice the group's disappointment with the court's decision earlier this year.

"We all knew something would eventually get built on this site at some point, and after five years of hard effort by the community and council, we would have hoped it'd be something aligned to what sits around this key central part of our town," the post read.

"Best of luck to those fellow residents who live in and around the block, and to the rest of us who must pass by/park/shop next to it every day."

The final homes are expected to be completed in late 2022.
