Strong demand for land in the Harbour Precinct from Sydneysiders
The latest release of 24 land lots at The Waterfront, Shell Cove are selling fast, with 18 lots in the Harbour Precinct sold on the day of the ballot draw on Thursday, 12 November. The new masterplanned community by Shellharbour City Council, with Frasers Property Australia, is attracting more and more buyers from Sydney.
"Buyers are drawn to the spectacular harbourfront lifestyle at Shell Cove. There's a trend of more Sydneysiders showing interest in the community, with seven of the 18 lots sold to Sydney buyers," says Simone Dyer, Development Director, Frasers Property Australia.
"This latest land release is the closest yet to the beachfront on the northern side of the community and the lots benefit from walking tracks through to the beach. The proximity to the beach, relaxed lifestyle, and price point are luring Sydneysiders seeking a sea change, especially as more people embrace working from home."
"COVID-19 has taught us that working from home is not only possible but efficient and many businesses plan to adopt it on a permanent or semi-permanent basis. It presents the perfect opportunity for people to move away from the hustle and bustle of the city and be closer to the beach for a lifestyle change."
"Interested buyers should act quick as we are expecting the remaining lots to be snapped up quickly," says Ms Dyer.
The 18 lots ranged in price from $635,000 to $940,000, with lot sizes ranging between 320sqm and 518sqm. The six remaining lots are priced from $680,000 to $835,000 and range in size from 320sqm to 467sqm.
Almost three decades in the making, The Waterfront, Shell Cove is evolving every day. With the Town Centre open, the Shellharbour Marina and boat harbour to be completed next year, and the new apartments underway, buyers are recognising the unique opportunity and lifestyle The Waterfront represents located only 90km from Southern Sydney.
Nestled between Shellharbour South Beach and Shelharbour Village, around 120 metres from the marina's edge and just 250 metres from the ocean, residents of the latest land release will enjoy direct boardwalk access to all the amenities, shops and dining choices in The Waterfront Town Centre.
The release is also within an easy walk to Shell Cove's recreational parklands and sporting ovals, adding a new lifestyle dimension for people to create their dream home.
"People who choose the Harbour Precinct to build their dream waterside home will enjoy easy access to all the qualities and amenities that mare The Waterfront, Shell Cove stand out as both a lifestyle destination and a healthy outdoors community," says Ms Dyer.
"This new release on the northern side of the community balances everything an outdoors-type will love. The marina is close by, there are parks and ovals immediately adjacent, there's a direct link to the Town Centre, and of course, the beach is always an option."
"We are at an exciting stage in the long-term journey that will establish The Waterfront, Shell Cove as the state's most picturesque, vibrant and liveable coastal community. The Harbour Precinct is a truly rare opportunity for people to make their coastal home vision a reality," Ms Dyer says.
