ALL of the waterfront homes to be built at the Claremont Golf Club have been sold.
St Andrews Estate Agents director Steve Yannarakis said demand for the North Shore residential development properties had been “exceptional”.
“So far we have sold 26 homes, with a value over $10 million,” he said.
“Every waterfront residence from stages one, two and three has been sold.
“[Construction company] Vos is now building stages two and three.
“When complete there will be about 50 homes.”
Steve said practically everyone who had bought at North Shore was a downsizer.
He said so far there had been only three investors who had bought property at North Shore
“I would say the vast majority of buyers have a golfing interest,” Steve said.
“When viewing the homes people have been impressed with the outlook — water on one side and the greens on the other — as well as the high quality of the build, which is tight as a drum.
“I was confident that North Shore would sell well, and as soon as the first home was built the sales started to fly.”
These architecturally designed homes have a lush feel with their high, raked ceilings coupled with large windows, plush carpets and chic kitchens and bathrooms.
While the waterside homes are long gone, St Andrews is selling two- or
three-bedroom townhouses located directly beside the waterfront properties.
The fit-out is identical, albeit with an adjusted floor plan to suit a two-level home.
That extra height allows water views across the top of the neighbouring homes towards Old Beach.
And on the other side of the townhouses there are also uninterrupted golf course and Mount Wellington views.
There are options available such as upgrading to a balcony on the golf course side, or adding a lift or a garage rather than a carport.
Prices in this part of the development begin at $429,000.
Steve said the days of Hobartians not wanting to buy a home “off the plan” were over.
“That fear is gone,’’ he said. “We have certainly caught up to interstate markets on that front.
“One of the most attractive features of this development is the neighbourhood.
“Cadbury Estate has a very nice feel to it. It would have to be one of, if not the premier area in the northern suburbs.”
