LIVING’S EASY IN OWN LIFT
Di Carlo Property Group and Urbanyte’s prestige Coorparoo development, The Lodges - Stirrat, features personal lifts making the homes ideal for families, retirees and people with disabilities.
Imagine no more grocery heavy lifting from the garage up the stairs.
Belle Property Bulimba property consultant Paul Liddy said with an ageing population, it has never been more important for residential developers to create innovative ideas for more accessible homes.
Many of The Lodges’ 15 residences have one lift per terrace house. “Private lifts and maintenance are now affordable for residential projects,’’ Mr Liddy said.
“Where they were previously price prohibitive, slow and maintenance was a concern, these Italian-made lifts are commercial quality and can be fully maintained for around $400 a year.
“This is not a common feature in two and three-storey constructions, but with so many buyers downsizing and wanting to live close to the city, the lifts provide the ultimate in convenience and flexibility.”
“Incorporating lifts within two and threestorey homes means older people with mobility issues can enjoy all the benefits of a luxurious, bespoke and convenient property without having to move to a village-style development.
“This development fills a need in the area for people, such as empty nesters and retirees, who have lived in Coorparoo their whole lives and would prefer to stay in the local area but need to downsize from their family home.’’
Designed by architect Platinum Design, the interiors are styled by Leigh Way Designs.
The Lodges-Stirrat is a boutique development of 15 luxurious, freehold terrace homes in Coorparoo with innovative design features for better accessibility.
