Australia’s love affair with a home among the gumtrees and a verandah out the front on a quarter acre block is forcing many into hour-long commutes at the expense of quality time with their families.
But what if you could have a similar sized home and nature on your doorstep, literally five minutes from the CBD?
“And it’s not just workers with families; young professionals and first home buyers are also being priced out of the housing market. Some people are spending two hours each day commuting to work, that’s 10 hours a week of lost time they could have spent with their kids and friends, or relaxing.”
One Subiaco is now selling one to five bedroom residences, platinum collection residences and penthouses – all with balconies.
“We wanted to deliver the best of both worlds; a complex that supports a cosmopolitan lifestyle, with all the characteristics synonymous with a community-driven Aussie town.”
Residents will be a short walk away from Subiaco Primary School and the state government’s new secondary school Bob Hawke College, as well as supermarkets and Rokeby Road’s cultural strip of shops, bars, restaurants and the historic Regal Theatre.
One Subiaco will be a short drive to Perth’s major health institutions, including the Perth Children’s Hospital, as well as a short drive from the University of Western Australia.
“We’ve secured the ultimate inner-city location with all the essential amenities nearby,” Mr Blackburne said.
“One Subiaco will be less than a one-minute stroll from the station where trains will run every seven or so minutes by 2021 thanks to the state’s new Forrestfield-Airport Link. This will mean residents can easily enjoy a day trip to places like Fremantle or faster commutes to the airport, without the stress of parking the car.”
One Subiaco will also provide residents with resort-style facilities including concierge services, a heated swimming pool with an expansive private deck surrounded by poolside cabanas, an outdoor lounge, shared barbecues, kitchen and an urban orchard.
“We have also crafted a space on the ground floor for the broader community to enjoy, including bespoke alfresco cafes and restaurants, landscaped pocket parks and an open space for local activations, gatherings and buskers,” Mr Blackburne said.
“There will also be a mix of permanent and pop-up market stalls, that complement Subiaco’s existing weekend fresh food markets, by introducing featuring curated local designers and artisan retailers.”
With public gardens, including Kings Park, and beaches close by, Mr Blackburne said residents could still enjoy the Australian way of life without the long drive.
“Blackburne is creating a new Australian property dream which offers space, convenience and all the modern amenities that make life comfortable without having to waste hours in a car commuting to and from work.”
