LIVE LARGE IN APARTMENTS
BLURRING the lines between apartments and traditional houses has added to the appeal of a new Bulimba development.
The Concorde Apartments, on Stuart St, has nine apartments that all include three bedrooms and two bathrooms, but each has a different floorplan ranging from 110sq m to 204sq m.
Paul Liddy of Ray White East Brisbane, who is marketing the development, said the parkside development appealed to a wide range of buyers.
“There is an emerging trend of smaller modern families wanting to live in the inner city with all its amenity and benefits, rather than heading out to suburbia,” he said.
“They don’t necessarily want a house, but they want a true house alternative, and the apartments in Concorde meet this requirement with their generous sizing and big individual footprints. There is very limited stock in inner Brisbane of a similar nature.”
Designer Elizabeth Anderson, from Hayes Anderson Lynch Architects, said the apartments in Concorde were also more like hous houses than tradition traditional apartment apartments in terms of design and amenity. “h “What you’re’ getting with this development is a really generous high-end apartment designed as a house replacement with ample storage areas, large kitchens, big dramatic entries and lots of cross-ventilation, with the apartments all open on two or three sides and the rooms being free flowing from the internal to external areas,” she said.
“The outdoor courtyards in particular are extremely generous, being up to 89 per cent of the size of the interior.
“While the apartments offer almost everything a house would offer, including privacy from both the street and other apartments, they also have the benefits of all the facilities found in apartment complexes, including security and convenient car parking with lift access.”
Concorde apartments are priced from $799,000.
