Two new projects from builders Traders in Pur­ple have been launched on the Red­cliffe Penin­sula, of­fer­ing owner-oc­cu­piers the op­por­tu­nity to in­vest in a grow­ing re­gion.

Bathers Beach­side at Mar­gate Beach is cur­rently un­der con­struc­tion, and Vave

Scar­bor­ough launched this month. Both aim to com­pete with the wa­ter­front prop­erty mar­kets of Syd­ney and Mel­bourne while re­main­ing af­ford­able. Re­cent data showed Red­cliffe was one of the south­east top 10 mar­kets for in­ter­state buy­ers look­ing for a new home. David and Nora Brougham (pic­tured) have bought a three-bed­room apart­ment at Bathers Beach­side. They said their main mo­ti­va­tion for buy­ing in to the project was the lifestyle on of­fer.

“We se­lected that apart­ment be­cause it’s bou­tique, and it gives us the lay­out we wanted,” Mr Brougham said. “Three bed­rooms give us room for vis­i­tors. “But what we want to do is just push a pad­dle­board out.”

Mr Brougham also cited the re­cently com­pleted Red­cliffe Penin­sula rail line as a fac­tor in choos­ing the area, as his wife could eas­ily com­mute to her work in the CBD. “We weren’t se­ri­ously look­ing at Red­cliffe un­til the rail line had been com­pleted,” he said.

Traders in Pur­ple chief ex­ec­u­tive Brett Robin­son said the two projects would com­ple­ment the area’s beach­front lo­ca­tion in a sim­i­lar fash­ion to the com­pany’s re­cent project at The Sebel Bris­bane.

“Both de­vel­op­ments cap­i­talise on the pic­turesque coastal set­ting and more af­ford­able wa­ter­front hous­ing com­pared with Syd­ney or Mel­bourne,” Mr Robin­son said.

“The vil­lage feel and wa­ter­front liv­ing boasts 23km of flat walk­ing paths along the wa­ter­front, and close prox­im­ity to the new Sebel ho­tel at Mar­gate Beach.”

Vave Scar­bor­ough en­com­passes 50 two and three-bed­room op­tions, in­clud­ing 11 pent­house apart­ments, while Bathers

Beach­side will have 24 three-bed­room apart­ments.

“The de­vel­op­ment of both Bathers Beach­side and Vave Scar­bor­ough will of­fer some­thing for buy­ers at ev­ery stage of their lives and ev­ery bud­get, in­clud­ing those who wish to down­size from the fam­ily home,” Mr Robin­son said.

He said Red­cliffe Penin­sula’s beaches and the re­cent ad­di­tion of the train line meant it was an at­trac­tive place to in­vest. “The Red­cliffe apart­ment mar­ket con­tin­ues to per­form strongly, with in­creased buyer de­mand off the back of in­fras­truc­ture im­prove­ments at­tract­ing a di­verse range of buy­ers for its lo­ca­tion, value and over­all laid­back beach lifestyle and cafe cul­ture,” he said.
