Outstanding amenities and central location a winning combination
The new pinnacle of residential living in Auckland, Grace Victoria Quarter, is proving to be a popular choice with local professional couples and downsizers, who are attracted to the project’s central CBD-fringe location.
Situated in the heart of Sale Street, the project provides panoramic harbour views and easy access to some of Auckland’s best cafes and restaurants, while seamlessly connecting residents to the CBD.
With over 95 per cent of apartments sold to date, Sales Manager Bernadette Morrison from Bayleys Real Estate Ltd said locals have recognised the unique position and unrivalled amenities on offer at Grace VQ, including a Residents Rooftop Retreat with 360 degree views.
“The strongest points of difference at Grace are the amenities, including the rooftop resident’s lounge, and the architectural design of the building. This, in combination with the property’s elevated location offering views from the upper reaches of Auckland’s inner harbour to the Ponsonby ridgeline, has proved to be a winning combination with only a handful of apartments remaining,” she said.
Designed by internationally acclaimed COX Architecture, Grace Victoria Quarter features sophisticated freehold apartments of one-bedroom through to grand double-storey sky homes, with each residence boasting an abundance of natural light and fresh air.
With construction nearing completion, in what is said to be a first for New Zealand, Little Projects and Reside have unveiled a display apartment as a means of providing something unique for future residents to benchmark the level of quality and craftsmanship expected.
According to Bernadette, the display apartment offers prospective buyers an opportunity to view the quality and features in person, as well as physically and spatially experience the room available within a Grace VQ apartment.
“Some purchasers find it challenging to visualise what a finished apartment will look like when purchasing off-the-plan, so allowing them to immerse themselves in a finished apartment makes it easier for them to reach a decision.”
After several years of values within the New Zealand property market rapidly rising, Bernadette said the housing market is currently cooler, calmer and more stable, making it the perfect time to buy.
“Although March saw a small drop in the average asking price in Auckland according to realestate.co.nz, overall values are holding firm – underpinned by favourable economic factors including strong inward migration, a healthy job market and low interest rates.
“A steadier market means buyers may have more time to search and conduct due diligence, however buyers should also keep in mind that quality, well-presented properties in desirable locations will always attract attention.
“Therefore we recommend you research and do your due diligence but be prepared should you find the perfect property, as properties that tick all the boxes typically don’t last long,” said Bernadette.
With completion anticipated in the coming months, a limited supply of two bedroom premium residences at Grace are still available, with prices starting from $1.05 million.
