Brand-new home appeals to buyers in inner-city suburb
A lifestyle of convenience is proving a hit with families buying apartments at TriBeCa Terraces, Bulimba.
With $36.5 million in sales and completion due within months, buyers have snapped up 38 of the 53 terraces by Di Carlo Property Group in the tightly held inner city suburb.
Di Carlo Property Group director Joshua Di Carlo said buyers in the first stage could expect to be living in their new homes by June while the second stage is due for completion in August.
“We’ve certainly garnered a lot of interest from buyers who are excited at the prospect of moving into a brand-new home so quickly,” Mr Di Carlo said.
“The terraces are in a prime position giving homeowners access to a range of different amenities which is set to be enhanced with the Bulimba Barracks redevelopment offering an entertainment precinct with riverfront restaurants and parks within walking distance.
“TriBeCa Terraces really offers a well-rounded lifestyle where buyers can secure a modern, well-appointed home in a sought-after location and the market has had a strong response to this,” he said.
Featuring large living and kitchen areas, multiple balconies, generous third bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, ground-floor courtyards, double garages, extensive landscaping and recreation areas, the development has proven popular with families.
Among the recent purchasers are Skye and Simon Whyte who are eagerly awaiting their move to TriBeCa Terraces with their daughter Chelsea. The family purchased a three-storey, three-bedroom terrace featuring three bathrooms with a powder room.
Mrs Whyte said they had not been house hunting long when they came across TriBeCa Terraces.
It had immediate appeal because of its location, build quality, high-end specifications and design layout.
“Having lived in Bulimba and the surrounding area for the past six years we have become very familiar with the area and the lifestyle it offers which is second to none in our opinion, so being able to buy locally was a major drawcard,” Mrs Whyte said.
“Working busy corporate jobs means the time we have at home is minimal, so we wanted a lifestyle of convenience.
“We love that we’re only a short ferry ride to Teneriffe or Portside and it’s a very relaxing way to travel to work. A lot is to be said for the calmness that commuting to work via the river brings into your life,” she said.
Mrs Whyte said the freehold aspect of the terraces which had given them the unique opportunity to own the land that their terrace home sits on, together with the quality of the terraces, was also a selling point.
“The architecturally designed terraces offering an exclusive and high-end finish was the exact product that we were looking for,” she said. “Having the third bedroom located on the ground floor instead of the first has really maximised the living and dining space.
“Also knowing a high percentage of other local owner-occupiers had purchased into the development really solidified our decision.’’
