Scott Nolan from Nolan Partners Real Estate offers some industry insight into Seashells. Scott brings to this exciting new development much experience in the real estate industry and a great understanding of the Coffs Coast property market and its likely direction for investors and homebuyers alike.
I’ve had many years in the industry and it’s fair to say that this fantastic new high rise development is the most exciting we’ve seen in over thirty years for the Coffs Coast. There is no question that it’s unlike anything else in the region – in part because of the luxury the apartments will offer but the four amazing penthouses and two Skyhomes bringing a whole new level of sophistication for buyers. For an off-the-plan project we have had an incredible start having already received deposits for more than 75% of the 44 apartments. It’s evident from these results that Seashells has generated a wonderful buzz thus far and we only officially launched on 1st November 2016. It’s great to see.
What sets Seashells apart?
Luxury, location and lifestyle. In addition to the specular layout, design and fittings of the apartments, there are expansive oceans and hinterland views to consider as well as the many great extras available to residents such as the podium level, pool and entertainment area.
We’re delighted that the interior and exterior design of the complex is now complete with the choice of three different interiors and colour boards available to view at our office at The Promenade. For those buyers at the higher end of the market and considering one of the Penthouses or Sky Homes, they have the opportunity to custom design their interiors. Nicolle Foster and her team from the award-winning Natural Habitat Interiors & Design, here on the Coffs Coast, will work closely with these buyers to custom design their interiors.
Can you share some price indicators with us?
Seashells offers an opportunity for investors and buyers across a broad range of budgets however due to the early interest there are very limited opportunities still available. The unique studio apartment is only $299,000, whilst the two-bedroom apartments are priced between $545,000 and $715,000 with only 3 remaining. Three-bedroom apartments range from $695,000 up to $915,000 and finally, for those seeking the most luxurious surrounds and spectacular views, the Penthouses and Sky Homes are priced between $995,000 and just over $1.5 million.
And who’s behind this exciting development?
The Naumburger family are the driving force behind this luxury development. Many locals would know them as the part owners of Park Beach Plaza and Park Beach HomeBase but they’ve also been landholders across this region for over fifty years – with various land holdings and investments.
The other notable element of Seashells is the engagement of great local specialists in their field?
In addition to the involvement of Nolan and Partners from a selling point of view, the Bachrach Naumburger Group are supporting other businesses in the local community such as local architect, Vil Brickman, local engineers and project managers, De Groot and Benson and local interiors and exterior design experts, Natural Habitat Interiors & Design. Additionally, local builder FM Glenn and tradespeople and suppliers are being utilised wherever possible thus providing a tremendous boost to our local construction industry.
Tell us how industry trends will impact on Seashells?
With the recent property boom in capital cities, particularly Sydney, many investors and home buyers are needing to look beyond the metropolitan areas, from a monetary point of view and consider investing regionally where their budget can deliver a whole lot more.
There’s no doubt that the Coffs Coast has a great deal to offer. We’re easily accessible from the metro areas and offer an amazing lifestyle here too. There are good medical facilities, great public and private schools, a university, the list goes on…This makes Coffs Harbour an attractive and enticing option for those city buyers.
Retirees also look favourably upon apartment living and Seashells offers a safe and secure living environment. Additionally, this wonderful complex has the beach and restaurants of the Jetty strip within very easy reach. The central location of Seashells also make it a wise choice for business professionals whether they have business to conduct here in Coffs Harbour or should they need easy and convenient airport access. Seashells is also an affordable option for first home buyers – what a wonderful way to kick off in real estate. Finally, we’re also seeking buyers who might consider Seashells as a holiday investment. Surrounded by such luxury and with beautiful vistas to be enjoyed from many aspects of the apartment, it truly will feel like a holiday every day.
