Development News: Four new town homes in exclusive Church Street listed for sale

Over $8 million collectively could be paid for four brand new town homes in exclusive Church Street on The Hill if the latest sales in the area are any indication.

Homes in the street of Christ Church Cathedral overlook the city and harbour and are tightly held.

A property sold in Church Street for $2.01 million in January this year and another sold for $3.5 million in August last year. 

The town homes at 45 Church Street all enjoy an elevated position and No.4 will be open for the first time today between 12.30pm and 1pm.

Ben Robinson of Robinson Property is marketing them individually through expressions of interest campaigns and said they were a unique offering.

“They’re all three bedroom, have a massive living area and kitchen, big north-facing entertaining decks and have a double garage and you can get another two cars in front of your garage,” Mr Robinson said.

“They’re all separate, not attached.

“Nothing ever comes up in Church Street and the quality is second to none as well, they haven’t cut any corners.”

The homes are in a gated complex and each enjoys a split-level design. Floor-to-ceiling glass has been used to maximise the views on offer.

Each of the four homes has a white kitchen with Caesarstone benches, soft close drawers, touch catch cabinetry and state-of-the-art appliances.

Three bedrooms are downstairs along with a master ensuite and family bathroom, including floor-to-ceiling tiling, stone-topped vanities and frameless showers.

All properties feature a private courtyard and landscaped gardens and are located within walking distance of cafes, restaurants, beaches, the harbour and Newcastle cultural centre.

SELLING WELL 

Over half of the residences on offer in new Warners Bay residential apartment development Water’s Edge have sold after the $80 million project was released to market in October.

PRDnationwide Newcastle Lake Macquarie is marketing the 112-apartment complex and agent Paula Ashcroft said “the take-up has been fantastic”.

“We have issued 68 contracts so far and are well and truly over halfway,” Ms Ashcroft said. “Our three-bedroom apartments have been most popular and there have been a lot of downsizers locally, planning for the future.”

She said some buyers had bought side-by-side one and two-bedroom apartments to make three-bedroom residences.

The development is located on The Esplanade and comprises two towers.
