WITH experienced developer and builder Gary Dempsey as well as architects Zuideveld Marchant Hur behind this complex, buyers can be assured of a top-quality build combined with outstanding design at this Bluewater Scarborough apartment.
In fact, Apartment 17 in the award-winning complex is owned by Mr Dempsey, which probably shows just how special this home is.
“Number 17 Bluewater is a two-level penthouse apartment within the small boutique building of 36 apartments located on the beach side of West Coast Highway,” Mr Dempsey said.
“Being both the developer and builder, the penthouse apartment was designed for my specific requirements. For example, it has a built-in spa on the balcony off the master bedroom, butler’s scullery, extra-high ceilings up to 3.6m, Spanish limestone flooring and many other unique finishes.”
Mr Dempsey shared the home with his daughters Kaila and Myee but since Myee moved out, the home has proved to be much bigger than he needs.
The luxury residence has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, multiple living areas across both floors, a home office, laundry room and huge balconies, including one with the spa.
“We celebrated my daughter’s 21st birthday with some 60 or so friends on the balcony on what was a perfect windless night,” Mr Dempsey said.
“On those winter days when a storm is at its peak, we will jump in the spa with just our heads out of the water watching the storm roll in while rain and wind rages on all around us.”
Buyers can also expect top-quality extras such as Gaggenau appliances, ducted airconditioning, C-Bus smart wiring, solid timber floors, frameless glass balustrading and a large 4m-high storeroom – big enough to accommodate stand-up paddleboards – and the bonus of four allocated car bays in the basement carpark.
The complex also features low strata fees, a communal gym, sauna and solar-heated pool, 25kW solar-power system for reduced shared electricity bills, electric car charging points in the basement, and an outdoor shower for beach-going residents to wash off before entering the building.
“Apartment living suits my lifestyle perfectly, as I travel interstate most weeks – literally lock and leave,” Mr Dempsey said.
“Being a keen surfer, it’s ideal being able to see the surf from home and, when it’s just right, head over and a get a few waves at a moment’s notice.”
All offers will be presented to the owner on Wednesday, August 8, at 6pm.
