SYDNEY, 7 JULY 2021
Following the instant sell-out of the first release of homes for the year at The Waterfront, Shell Cove, five brand-new homes have been released in the new South Coast destination.
Available for sale on 29 July, the five homes will be sold via online ballot, with prices expected to range between $695,000 and $750,000 for the two one-bedroom studio loft options, and $1,350,000 to $1,550,000 for the three four-bedroom homes.
Located along The Promontory Drive in the heart of the masterplanned community by Shellharbour City Council with Frasers Property Australia, these new homes are only 145 metres from the harbour’s edge, offering residents easy access to the boardwalks leading to Shell Cove Town Centre, harbourside cafes, restaurants and more.
Simone Dyer, Development Director, Frasers Property Australia says with the Shellharbour Marina, The Waterfront Dining Precinct and The Waterfront Tavern all opening later this year, the community is fast becoming a reality.
“This is the year The Waterfront, Shell Cove fully comes to life and there is no time like now to make your move to the South Coast and enjoy the coastal lifestyle with all modern-day living amenities on your doorstep,” Ms Dyer says.
“Purchasers of these new homes will move into an established community with everything they need within walking distance – the Shell Cove Town Centre is only 650 metres away and Shallows Beach, Shallows Coastal Reserve and Bass Point are all within easy reach.
“From one-bedroom design options for first home buyers to four-bedroom homes for growing families, this release of new homes will appeal to a broad mix of buyers. Enquiry from Sydneysiders is on the increase as recognition of the coastal lifestyle proposition grows,” Ms Dyer says.
The latest release includes a new one-bedroom Caye home design. Featuring an open plan dining/kitchen/living area that leads to the balcony and downstairs is a landscaped courtyard and single garage.
For people looking for extra space, there are two four-bedroom Breeze homes and one four-bedroom Seagreen home, which have proven popular with families looking for room to grow.
All four-bedroom homes in this release feature a detached double garage and a spacious open plan dining/kitchen/living area that leads to an outdoor alfresco area overlooking the landscaped backyard.
Upstairs you’ll find two bedrooms, a freestanding bathroom, kids’ retreat, and a master bedroom with walk-in robe, ensuite bathroom and private balcony. The fourth bedroom is conveniently located on the ground floor, as is the laundry and storage space, and a freestanding bathroom.
“With only five homes in this release, we expect they will sell quickly. The last homes release was sold out on the day of release so interested buyers should register their interest now to avoid missing out,” says Ms Dyer.
For new Shell Cove resident Kelvin Murray, buying his four-bedroom home at The Waterfront was a case of love at first sight.
“It was a complete accident. I came to Shell Cove late last year to see a joiner about a house I am building in Bowral. He suggested I come to Shell Cove for lunch, which I did. So, we had lunch, I stumbled into the display suite at The Waterfront and bought a house on the spot. It was that spontaneous and simple,” says Kelvin.
The sales experience was also seamless, he says. He asked a lot of questions, “rapid fire”, and then when asked ‘what do you think?’ he said: “‘I’ll take it. Where do I sign? Here’s my credit card’.”
Kelvin had no preconceived ideas about buying a house at the time, but what sold the experienced interior-design architect turned real estate agent was the masterplan and location of the home, which backs onto a reserve and is close to the marina and Town Centre.
“The location was a particular drawcard, as well as not being on a main road, not being on a thoroughfare,” Kelvin says.
“The place was immaculate, very well presented, beautiful landscaping, so it was a great introduction to my new home.”
In terms of future lifestyle, the home also ticked every box.
“Working in real estate, I thought it was a very good value proposition, which is mainly why I bought it. I saw the value straight away, given the location and quality. Now it just represents a great investment, for the short or medium term, at least. It will possibly be used as a holiday let further down the line and maybe a retirement house in the future.”
The Waterfront, Shell Cove is a masterplanned community in a natural coastal setting surrounded by beaches, parks and wetlands but close to schools, transport and major centres.
A focal point will be the 270-berth boat harbour and Shellharbour Marina next to the lively Town Centre featuring a retail precinct anchored by a Woolworths supermarket, with specialty shops and restaurants on the marina’s edge. There will also be a Waterfront Tavern, hotel, children’s beach, water play areas, library and community centre.
