WHEN it comes to lifestyle, residents at the Amber Apartments in Carine will be spoilt for choice.
Nature lovers will enjoy having Star Swamp Reserve, 100ha of natural bush reserve with walking and cycling trails, on their doorsteps.
Beachgoers have a 10-minute walk to popular North Beach and Watermans Bay with their cafes and restaurants, and it is a short drive to Hillarys Boat Harbour.
Golfers will appreciate having two local courses to choose from and shopping will be a breeze with Carine Glades Shopping Centre nearby and 180 stores to choose from at Karrinyup Shopping Centre.
The apartments also have excellent transport links.
The development was extremely popular, with most of the apartments selling off the plan.
The complex is now complete and residents are starting to move in.
Acton North’s Alan Baxendale and Lisa Buckley have been marketing the last six apartments.
Mr Baxendale said it was probably one of the most successful developments in Perth and they have already sold three of the remaining apartments.
“The location has been a massive drawcard and 95 per cent of buyers are owner-occupiers,” he said.
“A lot of buyers are local residents whose kids have gone through school in Carine, grown up and moved out.
“They want to downsize from their 700sq m blocks, but didn’t want to leave the area.”
Brian Smith and his wife Cora are downsizing from their home on a large block in Duncraig, and are very happy with their decision to buy in the Amber Apartments complex.
“We wanted to downsize and were looking for something to support a lock-up-and-leave lifestyle,” Mr Smith said.
“When we looked at the apartments we could see they were quality, and we are happy with the move.”
The three remaining apartments have two bedrooms, two bathrooms and two car bays. They are priced from $585,000 to $620,000.
The complex also includes a lounge, gym and barbecue facilities for residents’ use.
