LONG time Gold Coast residents Michael and Didi Carr are taking their sea-change to new heights after swapping a home at Arundel for the golden shores of Surfers Paradise beach at the spectacular $111 million Northcliffe Residences.
The couple has secured a 400sqm sub-penthouse in the luxury residents-only project for more than $4 million, giving them a 360-degree view of the best the Gold Coast has to offer.
The sub-penthouse is one of four exclusive whole-floor offerings at Northcliffe Residences, which is currently under construction on an absolute beachfront site at 3 Northcliffe Terrace, Surfers Paradise.
When completed in mid-2018, Northcliffe Residences will bring to life 26 levels of meticulously crafted residences designed by the multi-award winning Cottee Parker Architects.
The Carrs plan to swap their family home at Arundel for the sub-penthouse lifestyle on the shores of the Gold Coast’s premier world-class beach.
“This is a long awaited sea-change and we are so excited this will become a reality in the near future,” Mr Carr said.
“This lifestyle is ideal for my wife and I as the maintenance and upkeep of apartment living is so much more sustainable.
“Everything is looked after and you can just lock up and leave. There isn’t the stress of house maintenance.”
Northcliffe Residences is one of the very few developments in the bustling heart of Surfers Paradise that features a strict residents-only policy.
“The value proposition that Northcliffe Residences presents is second to none,” Mr Carr said.
“The design elements and facilities are superb and phenomenal value given the prime location. The facilities and beachfront lifestyle on offer at Northcliffe are truly impressive.”
Mr Carr said the location and proximity to amenities were a major plus.
“It’s far enough away from the noise, but at the same time you’re in the heart of it all,” he said.
“Being right on the beach is exactly what we were looking for in a new home and here, I mean, you couldn’t get much closer than this. We literally will have everything we need right on our doorstep.”
The sub-penthouse, which features four bedrooms, four bathrooms plus powder room, is the second to be sold at Northcliffe Residences.
It comes on the heels of the $6 million sale of the penthouse last year and leaves just two sub-penthouses remaining.
So far $70 million in sales have been achieved at Northcliffe Residences, which is being developed by Qingjian Group Co Ltd (CNQC), one of China’s largest development and construction companies.
Northcliffe Residences’ project manager Graham Goldman, managing director of Eastview Australia, said the sale of the sub-penthouse reflects the strength of the luxury market for boutique developments in prime locations.
“We’ve been very pleased with the market response to Northcliffe Residences from the outset, and this is borne out by the sales we have secured for the most exclusive residential offerings in this project,” Mr Goldman said.
“It’s great to see Gold Coast buyers voting with their feet on this development, especially at this level.
“We’re finding that apart from the beachfront location, the big drawcards are the boutique nature of the project and quality of delivery. That translates into a value proposition that will become clearer as construction gets into full swing.”
Northcliffe Residences has been crafted to deliver the ultimate in luxurious living for its residents, with high-grade finishes carefully selected to showcase the elegantly designed spaces.
Each residence will feature open-plan gourmet kitchens and modern, sophisticated bathrooms, ample, cleverly appointed storage spaces as well as floor to ceiling windows that make the most of the multimillion-dollar views.
Northcliffe Residences will feature an exclusive ocean-view beach club with a fully equipped gymnasium, steamroom, sauna and designated yoga area.
Residents will also have access to a full suite of five-star resort facilities including club lounge and dining area, infinity pool and a waterfront terrace with direct access to the beach.
The Agency has been appointed to handle the sales and marketing of Northcliffe Residences with the sales and display suite open daily from 10am at 214A Cavill Avenue, Surfers Paradise.
