Wanting an upmarket, architect designed luxury apartment without the negatives of living in a large scale complex? Then this intimate development is the one for you. Designed and overseen by award winning architect David Hartree of Hartree + Associates this exemplary building has been designed after extensive research and consultation to avoid the pitfalls of typical apartment living and construction. Consideration has been given to details that many let slide on by. In seeking to avoid the often experienced problems associated with ‘light weight construction’ that is often preferred by developers in this building the decision was made to use brickwork construction to external and internal walls. This is further complemented by acoustic privacy insulation to all common walls and slabs with the aim of delivering a product that is solid, quiet and efficient. Likewise in achieving a 6 star energy rating double glazing to all openings such as windows and sliding doors have been utilised. Consideration has also been given future maintenance by utilising low maintenance materials and not loading the development up with facilities that most people do not ultimately use but see the strata levies go through the roof. The aim here is to deliver a product that will be thoroughly enjoyed by its occupants free from unnecessary financial burdens of expensive, escalating strata levies.
The opportunity also exists for buyers to liaise with the architect David Hartree and where possible customise interiors where appropriate. The architectural firm Hartree + Associates will be involved in the project from design to delivery which will ensure continuity of design and adherence to standards of quality and aesthetic.
Existing designs are considered and bespoke and feature generous size floorplans that are equal to or better than any comparable product on the Scarborough market regardless of the fact the other apartments may be located in a complex ten times the size of this one. The apartments wrap around the corners in plan to facilitate natural light and cross ventilation such that none of the apartments should feel hemmed in, or that the adjoining apartment is getting all the light or breeze!
Generous living spaces are designed for entertaining and connection to the terraces and trees with thoughtful separation between entry/living rooms and bedrooms. Interior finishes include Timber flooring, Miele appliances throughout [including an integrated fridge/freezer concealed behind the cabinetwork, stone benchtops and select fittings throughout that have been chosen in collaboration between Hartree + Associates and Kohler design. Storage has been considered throughout to even include a bicycle bay per apartment. With a warm, neutral colour palette and luxury specifications each apartment offers residents beauty, comfort, and a blank canvas on to which they can express their own individual style. “interiors are orientated to take full advantage of their aspect amongst surrounding trees, blurring the boundary between inside and out, creating spaces filled with natural, filtered light and gentle breezes” Kohler Design
