THE allure of apartment living on the coast has been too hard to resist for a number of buyers, with a huge surge in interest in the West Hamptons Apartments in Alkimos in recent weeks.
Registrations for the development in Shorehaven at Alkimos have almost quadrupled, with many attracted to the lifestyle and location – 150m from a 1.7km beachfront and Shorehaven’s landscaped 4ha Waterfront Park.
John and Rosemary Mai were ahead of the game when they recognised the potential of the Hillam Architects-designed complex earlier this year, snapping up a three-bedroom unit.
“There are thousands and thousands of apartments around Perth; if you’re looking to buy one, you have to look for a point of difference,” Mr Mai said.
“This was the pick of the development as far as we were concerned.
“It offers a lifestyle you won’t find in a city apartment; that’s exactly why we bought it.”
The couple said they made a snap decision to buy the apartment, which is an investment property, during a visit to Shorehaven’s Shore Café.
“I was halfway through a croissant, looking at the brochure and said to Rowie, ‘there’s a three-bedroom apartment available and I think we will have it’,” Mr Mai said, adding they went straight to the sales office afterward to buy it.
Homes in West Hamptons Apartments start at $311,000 and will be a short walk to the Shore Café and the future Coastal Village Centre.
There are 68 apartments in the complex offered in one, two and three-bedroom configurations ranging in size from 60sq m to 185sq m.
They come with quality fittings and are available in a choice of three interior design schemes reminiscent of New York’s famous Long Island style.
All apartments also come with balconies or terraces, many with sweeping views of the Alkimos coastline.
The development will include a private central courtyard with communal facilities including outdoor showers, bike racks and seating for entertaining.
For a limited time, new buyers at West Hamptons Apartments will be able to add the perfect blend of coastal chic to their new home with up to $3000 to spend at Pottery Barn as a gift with their apartment purchase.
