PRE­MIUM OUT­DOOR SPACE

The Courier-Mail - Home - - COURTYARD HAVEN - BELINDA CHILTON

A bou­tique apart­ment com­plex in As­cot is prov­ing a hit with five of the eight apart­ments sold prior to its of­fi­cial launch.

The de­vel­op­ment at 96 Dobson St, As­cot, has eight de­signer three-bed­room apart­ments with two of the re­main­ing apart­ments hav­ing their own 100sq m pri­vate court­yard.

The third re­main­ing apart­ment sits on the top floor with views to the river and city.

Queens­land Sotheby’s In­ter­na­tional Re­alty agent Tyson Clarke said he chose to take on the sell­ing be­cause it was such a unique find.

“At this stage, if you look on realestate.com.au, there’s not a lot that com­pares to this for sale,” Mr Clarke said.

“There are a lot of big unit com­plexes that have a re­duced level of in­ter­est but it’s hard to find some­thing in a blue chip sub­urb like As­cot, with a big yard out the back.”

Mr Clarke said the de­vel­op­ment was in a great lo­ca­tion, close to Race­course Road and right near Port­side and the Hamil­ton precinct.

“I like the way this project was put to­gether, with large out­door court­yards that are really rare around this area, it’s some­thing unique in this area and in­ter­est in the court­yard apart­ments has pre­dom­i­nantly been by home­own­ers,” Mr Clarke said.

“The out­door area is huge, over 100sq m of out­door area!”

Gold Coast res­i­dent and prop­erty in­vestor Ian Riss­man said he bought into the Dobson St project based on its lo­ca­tion and qual­ity.

Hav­ing al­ready signed ten­ants, Mr Riss­man said be­ing so close to Race­course Rd and Port­side was a draw­card and, hav­ing watched it be­ing built over the past 12 months, he was im­pressed with the qual­ity of the build.

“I mainly in­vest in com­mer­cial prop­erty, so this is my first res­i­den­tial for about 10 years,” he said. “I see Bris­bane as a growth area and, see­ing what’s hap­pen­ing in Syd­ney and Mel­bourne with the prices down there, I think there’ll be a flow-on ef­fect, so it’s a good time to get in, es­pe­cially in a good lo­ca­tion like this.”

Three out of eight bou­tique apart­ments re­main in Dobson St, As­cot, where the out­door area is a huge 100sq m.
