rush on to en­joy life down by ma­rina

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Coastal Developments -

THE de­vel­op­ment of Cape Jaffa An­chor­age, be­tween Robe and Kingston in the South­East, is grow­ing as al­lot­ment own­ers start build­ing their homes in stage one of the project.

The Cape Jaffa De­vel­op­ment Com­pany now has com­pleted $18 mil­lion of set­tle­ments in stage one of the ma­rina de­vel­op­ment and has seen solid pre-sales in stage two.

Set on the shores of La­ce­pede Bay on the Lime­stone Coast, the ma­rina ul­ti­mately will com­prise seven construction stages with about 700 res­i­den­tial al­lot­ments, 120 ma­rina berths, a tav­ern, shop­ping fa­cil­i­ties and tourist ac­com­mo­da­tion.

At present, more than 25 crayfishing ves­sels and a large num­ber of recre­ational boats op­er­ate from the ma­rina.

A four-lane boat ramp was com­pleted early last year and the ma­rina has wharfage ar­eas and diesel fuel avail­able.

About 10 homes have been built on the ma­rina and 12 more are ex­pected to be­gin construction in the next few months.

De­vel­op­ment sales and mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor Mark Hayward says ex­cel­lent lev­els of de­vel­op­ment applications have been lodged with the de­sign re­view com­mit­tee and the lo­cal coun­cil since late last year.

‘‘As a re­sult, we ex­pect high lev­els of build­ing ac­tiv­ity over the next 12 months,’’ he says.

‘‘Peo­ple have been at­tracted to our project for a num­ber of rea­sons, but pri­mar­ily they love the re­gion – winer­ies, beau­ti­ful beaches, great fish­ing, aquatic life and im­por­tantly a re­laxed life­style.

‘‘They have also recog­nised the qual­ity of our project. Pur­chasers and vis­i­tors all com- ment on the stun­ning lime­stone block walls that line the ma­rina. We of­fer fully ser­viced al­lot­ments, which in­clude retic­u­lated gas, mains wa­ter and sewer, all of which is unique in a re­gional set­ting.’’

The mar­quee release of the ‘‘Is­land’’ in stage two is sched­uled later this year and reg­is­tra­tions of in­ter­est are now be­ing taken for this pre­mium release.

‘‘When peo­ple look at the con­cept plan they im­me­di­ately iden­tify the is­land as the place they want to live,’’ Mr Hayward says.

‘‘The is­land will be ac­cessed via a lime­stone block bridge, that will be a real fea­ture within the ma­rina.’’

Stage two al­lot­ments are avail­able, with a lim­ited num­ber of stage one al­lot­ments.

Ma­rina-front land starts at $228,000.
