And as an "IQ" development, the building has a large lobby, a shared garden and BBQ area, as well as comprehensive security with restricted access, security cameras and reliable, patrolled visitor parking. The body corporate team are effective communicators and are committed to representing the owners.
In the basement, two designated car parks right next to lift will make you feel like a rock star.' An easily accessible, extra-large concealed lockup storage space has plenty of storage room for boxes, multiple bikes etc.
The benefits of this apartment will continue to grow, as its value appreciates in the future.
