Last two apartments in luxe Cottesloe development
Sleek, swanky and minimalistic, these apartments epitomise a luxe lifestyle on the doorstep of Perth’s iconic beach suburb of Cottesloe.
Just two apartments remain for sale in the coveted 11-apartment Overton Terraces development, with the other nine units sold between $1.895 million and $3.75 million.
Designed by architects Gary and Steeg Banham and constructed by builder Adrian Zorzi, the striking architectural profile hones the stunning coastal views, natural light and sea breeze, entwined with stone, marble and glass features.
“It’s very hard to get simplicity in a design, but with the architect and builder that we had, we’ve had a pretty fortunate combination,” says selling agent Chris Shellabear.
“It’s that concept that you’re either coming home to entertain after work or you’re walking home from the beach with a towel over your shoulder and sand on your feet. These apartments have a design that can cope with either.”
The properties have been being jointly marketed by Shellabear, principal of Shellabears Real Estate, and Neil McAllister, from Sotherby’s International Realty.
Priced at $3.975 million, apartment 9 offers three bedroom suites, each with breezeways and view corridors.
Spectacular curved entrance walls reveal a capacious living area and a five-star vista.
Extras include a butler’s pantry, outdoor kitchen, three car parking bays and ample storage.
Apartment 1, which has been advertised for sale in the mid $2 millions, has a clever layout that takes advantage of natural light and the coastal views, with 157sqm of living space and a 40sqm private courtyard.
There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms and two undercroft parking pays.
Shellabear says the impressive ocean views and private location in a hilltop cul-de-sac have been drawcards for interested buyers.
“I think when you look at all the people who have bought there, they are all people who essentially live within a 3km radius. They’re all professionals at various stages of their careers, either still working or actively retired,” Shellabear says.
“It’s one of those complexes that, quite frankly, wasn’t set up to suit investor-type purchasers because it was firmly skewed to people who understand what living in Cottesloe is all about.
“People have got more storage than you usually get, very good parking, places to hang up their bicycles. They’ve got a beach shower for when they’re coming back from up the street. It’s just attuned to the way people live.”
