The Boatyard Bulimba is luring Sydneysiders seeking luxury for less

first_imgThe Boatyard Bulimba is luring buyers to move from interstate as its waterfront location, price and quality finishes prove hard to resist.WITH the Sydney market going crazy on prices, owner occupiers are seeking more for their money and making the move to the Sunshine State.Julie Watts, formerly from Canada, has lived in Sydney since she was 19, twenty years late she’s now preparing to make the move north after purchasing a two-bedroom apartment in The Boatyard Bulimba development, a HG Developments project.“Obviously the Sydney property market has gotten to a stage of complete craziness,” Watts said.“I’ve had a couple of apartments in Sydney, but with the way the market is continuing I’ll never be able to own a home, so I thought I might just explore interstate options, Brisbane being one of them.“I have friends and family who have relocated to Queensland and absolutely love it.“It has a nice balance between a laid back cosmopolitan vibe, it’s not as busy and cut-throat as Sydney and it still has all the amenities like restaurants and bars but not the traffic issues.”Watts said she started looking for an apartment around May last year and was looking for something with a real point of difference.The Boatyard Bulimba.“I just didn’t want to buy a stock standard apartment and when I saw the Boatyard I instantly liked that it’s fairly small, it’s not a big complex. It also has great finishes and is surrounded by lots of wide streets, trees, parks, plus is only a ten-minute walk from good restaurants, cafes and shops,” she said.”For me it really ticked a lot of the boxes, I didn’t have a problem with the price as it’s relative to what they’re selling for in Sydney.”Watts said the interior design, location and team involved all sold her on the project.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home5 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor5 hours ago“It’s a great layout and is really light, bright and modern. I don’t think it’s likely to date  quickly,” she said.“I also did a bit of research on the builders and developers, and they have a great reputation, so everything seemed to fit. They’ve been really easy to deal with.”“I just felt really comfortable with the building, the location and really felt at home in Bulimba,” Watts adds.“It’s a cozy family orientated suburb with lots of parks and a good vibe about it. I think the fact that everyone seems quite friendly and enthusiastic made me feel comfortable.”Watts said she was looking forward to a more relaxed lifestyle without the constantly on-the-go feeling she has in Sydney.The Boatyard Bulimba.“It’s just really more of a balanced lifestyle to be honest. I’m looking forward to having a bit more space and to not being rushing around 24/7. I feel like everyone I’ve spoken to has said the vibe in Brisbane is on point,” she said.Watts is looking to sell her apartment in Sydney and is hoping her partner will be able to relocate with her.“If you’re able to relocate with work, why wouldn’t you look interstate?,” asks Watts.The Boatyard Bulimba is set to start construction midyear with Place Projects project sales manager Deborah Barbi saying there were 16 apartments left to sell, with a recent run on the apartments due to their quality finishes.There are five two-bedroom terrace apartments left for sale and 11 three and four-bedroom waterfront apartments available.Set across four buildings, the apartments are on the site of NRW and Sons former boat building business, started by the developers great grandfather in 1909.last_img read more
