The upstairs is where the remain 4 bedrooms are found and there is enough space to also fit in an activities room.

IDH have one display home at Arise Rochedale; The Bespoke. The custom builder set out to design a home suited to the block of land at Arise so this display is there to show the workmanship of IDH and is not an off the plan design (something IDH don’t offer).

The finish here is luxurious showing off some of the high-end features such as a floating staircase and a free-standing bath in the main bathroom.
