Units in prime location draws buyers to Brisbane hot spot
Accountants Nicole and Ian Reedman are excited to be moving into their new apartment in New Farm this weekend.
The pair sold their home in Hamilton in just six days and have been staying in temporary accommodation as the countdown was on to finish the Boardwalk Residences.
The development’s two contemporary character houses were purchased quickly but four of the 11 three-bedroom apartments are still available.
The average apartment size is 176sq m and prices start from $1.2 million.
Ms Reedman said they had not been seriously looking until they came across the Boardwalk Residences development.
“The prime location, the fact that it is a small prestigious boutique complex and size of the apartment and quality of the finishes drew us immediately to Boardwalk,” she said.
“Downsizing was in our five to 10-year plan but the minute we saw Boardwalk, it ticked all the boxes and we decided to sell our home of 23 years and downsize. We still have our 19- year-old son living with us.’’
The biggest drawcard for the Reedmans was its blue-chip, dress circle position within sought-after New Farm.
“Our large apartment has 152sq m of outdoor and living area with the proximity to the Brisbane River and city, Howard Smith Wharves, cafes/restaurants and the accessibility to the city cat at Sydney Street. Also, the quiet and private location,” Ms Reedman said.
The complex was built by JNA Property Group, a local boutique property developer, that focuses on design-oriented residential projects within the Brisbane city fringe.
