Brisbane downsizers looking to move from their family home have shown great interest in Teneriffe’s latest development, Tenor.
The eight-storey building, including ground retail, is proving popular with buyers because of its boutique designer living in one of Brisbane’s most highly sought-after suburbs.
Position Property principal Richard Lawrence said Tenor was a standout development, allowing buyers of three bedroom properties to work with the architect on interior elements.
Ashgrove resident Jane Harris and husband Adrian purchased off-the-plan in Tenor – securing an expansive three bedroom plus multipurpose room apartment, and a two-bedroom apartment as an investment.
“We have been searching for around a year for our next property to downsize to from the family home. We have three teenage sons, so needed enough space for them, as well as a location that could allow them to be independent,” Mrs Harris said.
“The opportunity at Tenor really stood out to us. We’ve been able to combine two, two- bedroom apartments to create a three bedroom plus multipurpose room space. The developer has also worked with us on the particular elements we wanted, such as timber flooring and lighting changes as well as some additional built-in storage.
“Purchasing off the plan has enabled us to make these personal changes, as well as have a broader choice of apartments.”
Mrs Harris said the boutique size of the building was also appealing – providing the opportunity to be part of a building community.
“We’ve always loved the Teneriffe area, and are looking forward to the move and enjoying the river and cafe lifestyle Teneriffe offers. Less time in the car and Ubers is a big attraction,” she said.
Mr Lawrence said the multi-layered architectural elements featured a staggered podium and architectural screening providing additional privacy.
He said there was subtropical landscaping enfolding the lower podium levels and the upper levels featured elegant brickwork, striking the balance between contemporary Queensland design and the industrial past of Teneriffe.
Mr Lawrence said Teneriffe was one of the “golden areas” where people wanted to live because of the proximity to the river and CBD.
The building is 50 per cent sold with construction anticipated to start mid-year.
