BUY­ING a new apart­ment of­ten re­quires a bit of imag­i­na­tion when all you’ve got to go on are blue­prints or dis­play suites.

At The Atrium apart­ment com­plex in Pas­coe Vale, what you see is what you get, ac­cord­ing to Barry Plant sales agent Ta­nia Bar­ravec­chio.

Ms Bar­ravec­chio said the build­ing and all its 72 apart­ments were now com­plete and buy­ers loved be­ing able to touch and feel the fin­ished prod­uct.

“Ba­si­cally we have opened the whole lot up for peo­ple to look at and come and choose which­ever one they want. You can view ev­ery apart­ment,” she said.

“It makes it a bit eas­ier be­cause when they look at it on the plan they think ‘OK, but this one’s not on the north, it’s on the other side and does it have this and that like the one on the plan?’ But when you ac­tu­ally walk them into it they can see ex­actly what they’re buy­ing.”

Ms Bar­ravec­chio said 21 of the apart­ments at 13-15 Pas­coe St had al­ready been sold and four of the five re­tail spa­ces on the ground floor were also taken by a hair and beauty sa­lon, a cafe and a den­tist.

The re­main­ing apart­ments have two bed­rooms and two bath­rooms, with four apart­ments of­fer­ing one bed­room, a large study and two bath­rooms. Sizes range from 64sq m to 90sq m in­ter­nally.

The apart­ments fea­ture stone bench­tops, glass splash­backs and stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances in the kitchen, a main bed­room with an en­suite and mir­rored built-in robe, a bal­cony, se­cure in­ter­com en­try, split-sys­tem airconditioning, a car space and stor­age cage.

Ms Bar­ravec­chio said all buy­ers so far had been owner oc­cu­piers, mostly sin­gles or cou­ples aged 25 to 40.

They were drawn by the lo­ca­tion, just 12km from the CBD and walk­ing dis­tance to Oak Park train sta­tion.

The one-bed­room plus study apart­ments are priced at $339,000 and the two-bed­room de­signs range from $370,000 to $420,000. Stamp duty sav­ings are also still avail­able.
