Best of both worlds on of­fer

The Courier-Mail - Property - - Developments -

LOVE your free­dom but also crave the life­style of an in­ner-city prop­erty de­vel­op­ment?

Three two-storey homes at 8 Red­car Street, Bulimba, are of­fer­ing the de­sign and plan­ning of a town­house de­vel­op­ment yet are to­tally free­hold, mean­ing no body cor­po­rate fees or reg­u­la­tion.

De­vel­oped by R4 Prop­erty Group, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Matt Rogers said the idea for the de­vel­op­ment came about when he asked him­self, ‘‘where would I like to live?’’

He wanted to cre­ate a bou­tique de­vel­op­ment that al­lowed more free­dom than a tra­di­tional apart­ment com­plex, as well as and the abil­ity to re­ally ‘‘own the prop­erty’’.

The re­sult is free­hold, semi-de­tached prop­er­ties with pri­vate drive­ways, yards and street frontage. 8 Red­car Street is the lat­est de­vel­op­ment of this type built by R4 Prop­erty Group, and was de­signed to be slightly more up­mar­ket.

‘‘Once you’ve bought, it it’s yours, you don’t have to pay body cor­po­rate fees or be re­spon­si­ble for any­one else,’’ Mr Rogers said.

He said the res­i­dences of­fered more liv­ing space than a stan­dard apart­ment on a 270sq m block and would be suited to peo­ple look­ing to down­size or those want­ing more space than an apart­ment close to the city.

De­signed by award-win­ning Mon­ster Ideas Ar­chi­tects, the ter­race-style homes fea­ture 170sq m of liv­ing space and are fin­ished with qual­ity fit­tings in­clud­ing home au­to­ma­tion for lights and sound, air­con­di­tion­ing and a dou­ble car­port with stor­age space.

Each res­i­dence has three bed­rooms, a study, multi-pur­pose room and back yard.

All bed­rooms have built-in wardrobes, an ensuite to the main bed­room, city views from the top floor, stylish kitchens with stone bench­tops and Euro­pean ap­pli­ances, and pri­vate bal­conies and decks.

Just 400 me­tres from Ox­ford Street’s restau­rant, shop­ping and en­ter­tain­ment district, the de­vel­op­ment is only four kilo­me­tres from the CBD.

Con­struc­tion has started and it is ex­pected to be com­pleted by Au­gust or Septem­ber 2011.
