$450M Ermington estate defies trends

A COLLABORATION between two developers is unlocking 2.3-hectares of land on the north-western reaches of Sydney Harbour and creating Sydney’s newest waterfront community.

PAYCE and Sekisui House have started transforming a portion of the former Defence Housing Australia (DHA) site at Ermington into a $450-Million estate called Royal Shores.

Internal streets and cycleways are already built, the boardwalk is about to be upgraded and a new ferry terminal is on the drawing board.

The first two waterfront buildings at Royal Shores were launched on Saturday, March 7. Called Safari, the twin six-level buildings cater for a variety of tastes and budgets, with apartments ranging from one bedroom up to four bedrooms.

Defying the trend of ‘micro apartments’, those in Safari are extremely large and family friendly. There are:

•    One bedroom apartments (up to 89sqm) from $599,000.
•    Two-bedroom apartments (up to 170sqm) from $726,000.
•    Three-bedroom apartments (138sqm)-from $1.184-M, and
•    Four-bedroom apartments (182sqm) from $1.431-M.

The cleverly-configured floorplans provide well-proportioned rooms with inventive storage solutions to make the most of the space, while careful acoustic planning guarantees occupants a serene environment. All apartments include secure car parking, some with a separate lockable storage area.

“Safari has parks to the east and west, uninterrupted water views to the south, and lush landscaping,” said Rhys Morgan, Sales Director of Link Marketing Services. “Within each Safari building is an ‘inner sanctum’ – internal courtyards that allow light and air into the apartments.”

Royal Shores is19km from the Sydney CBD and 5.5km from Parramatta, across the water from Wentworth Point and Sydney Olympic Park, and next to the soon-to-be-rejuvenated 27-hectare George Kendall Riverside Park.

Royal Shores draws on the site’s rich maritime history in a contemporary way. Architects HDR Rice Daubney have designed buildings with pitched sawtooth roofs and white-painted brick facades.

Other innovative features include suspended treetop walkways – raised bridge entries – and ‘all seasons’ rooms, again evoking a maritime flavour.

Ermington is also well served by schools and universities, and shopping centres, including Westfield Parramatta, Rhodes and Top Ryde. When you compare the value of property in Ermington to other waterfront suburbs in Sydney the opportunity is outstanding.

Royal Shores adjoins Halvorsen Park, named in honour of the legendary boat building firm, and when completed by the end of 2016 it will comprise 612 apartments in nine separate buildings of up to eight storeys.

Safari at Royal Shores is at 1 Bundarra Street, Ermington. An on-site display centre will operate daily from March 7, from 10am. To register your interest call 1300 888 558 or visit the website www.royalshores.com.au
