Increasingly there is a growing trend amongst developers to cater to owner occupiers – from an increase in boutique sized developments, along with customisable/larger floorplans, higher quality finishes and upgrade options such as flooring, joinery, fireplaces or even heated towel racks are common practice.
Across Sydney we also have experienced a number of residential project sites being acquired in locations such as the Lower North Shore, harbourside or even along the beachfront. And this growing trend of boutique developments catering to the higher end of the market don’t just limit themselves to apartment inclusions such as finishes upgrades - but are also are boosting their on-site amenity offerings. Everything from Wine cellars, pools and spas, yoga rooms, movie cinemas and even Virtual Reality Golf in some instances!
With everything an owner occupier could desire, the rise of boutique developments continues along Sydney, luring both downsizers and lifestyle investors!
Merrinda, a new boutique 14 apartment project along Sydney’s North Shore is soon to launch to the market. The development, located in the exclusive Kurraba Point of Sydney harbour features high end finishes, and a wine cellar – with secure storage of up to 250 - 1,000 bottles per apartment. The development features everything from Gaggenau appliances, fire places, natural stone benchtops and of course – views towards Sydney Harbour.
And views of Sydney’s famous harbour and beaches also prove to be popular for buyers looking to downsize to apartment living.
