Footsteps from the water’s edge, this is a glorious South Scarborough location!

A two storey brick and tile Webb and Brown-Neaves on a huge sundrenched north facing, 1400sqm allotment with high rise development potential (See concept images by Doepel Marsh Architects attached).

Get in now before this amazing location becomes even better with the proposed sinking of West Coast Highway underground between Kay Street and Pearl Parade such that the entire central Scarborough beachfront is a thriving pedestrian café and retail zone. Development here allows 8 – 12 stories depending on concessions (*Buyers are requested to familiarise themselves with specifics of planning possibilities with relevant authorities/personal architects.)

For those of you familiar with the thriving medium density beachside village of Bondi, this is how I imagine the emerging Scarborough to become one the Highway goes underground; Hustling and bustling lanes and pedestrian focused streets with minimal car traffic, the continuing redevelopment of high-quality apartment buildings with residential beach-pads upstairs and cool retail spaces, cafes, cottage designer’s showrooms, small bars and an all-round lively joie de vivre at street level.

This property offers you so many options. Just secure it as yours, and live in the solid 2 storey beach house for a fantastic and enduring family lifestyle by the beach. The yard is so big it has room for pools, tennis courts, guest dwellings…whatever your requirements over the years.

Alternately, you can retain the existing home at the back of the block and build a few homes in front for the kids and create unimaginably rare and idyllic family enclave by the sea.

If you wish to take this property to its highest and best use, why not investigate a medium to high rise redevelopment here? (Current zoning allow 8-12 stories.) Concept pictures by Doepel Marsh architects attached showcase potential design ideas based on current development guidelines.

I personally believe this is one of the best high rise redevelopment sites in the Scarborough beachfront redevelopment precinct. It is on a hilltop facing north towards the street front on a north facing slope with its ocean views down Brighton Road permanently protected.

This allows you to design and develop a building here where every apartment faces north with balconies that are bathed in winter sunshine and protected from the prevailing south westerlies.

By putting a resort style pool area to the north of the building on the podium level above the street level retail spaces, every single apartment could potentially additionally get both pool and ocean views!

This is the only high-rise redevelopment site in existence on the whole Scarborough beach redevelopment zone that I can think of where every apartment could potentially possess all these wonderful attributes which highlight the very best possible elements of the Scarborough beachside lifestyle.

As a developer, you could be permanently confident that you are bringing product to the market that has qualities unavailable elsewhere which should ensure quick sales.

Whichever path you take on this never to be repeated site, there is so much blue-sky opportunity whether in lifestyle, creation of capital or even for multigenerational family compound living opportunities (just think like the Balinese!).

Perhaps you could even mix it up live in with your family for the next couple of decades and develop for your retirement.

The path forward is yours to choose…

Life is good here…Welcome to Scarborough.
