Downsizers show a keen interest in new double-storey skyhomes
Downsizers looking for space and luxury are showing a keen interest in Skyhomes Taringa, a one-of-a-kind project in Brisbane.
The nine-storey development co-developed by Evans Long and Montserrat Hospital, at 32 Morrow St, Taringa, exclusively features skyhomes on levels eight and nine.
There are seven skyhomes in total, five remain for sale.
Ray White Toowong selling agents Sharon King and Kris Matthews said buyers were predominantly downsizers moving closer to Brisbane from the western suburbs.
“Being close to the train station is a drawcard,” Ms King said.
She said the project was new and exciting for each double-storey skyhome.
“No one has built this type of development in Brisbane before,” she said.
“The development provides a unique opportunity to have a hotel, childcare facility, day hospital and cafe on your doorstep.
“In addition to the facilities provided, the property is located adjacent to the Taringa railway station allowing easy access to the CBD, Suncorp Stadium and airport.”
With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, floorplans range from 190sq m to 250sq m.
Mr Matthews said properties performing well in the current apartment market were the larger, more opulent apartments.
“Apartments that fill the void between large family homes and your standard two and three-bedroom apartments seem to be the most desired and this is being reflected in the interest and prices achieved,” he said.
“Due to the lack of quality, expansive higher end apartments in Brisbane, buyers are willing to pay top dollar for such properties.’’
