Amenity, lifstyle or location?

There are seemingly three kinds of Melbourne buyers; city-dwellers, suburban lovers, and those on the Bay.

The old adage that ‘once you move to bayside, you never leave,’ seemingly still rings true today - with home-pricing in those areas consistently rising, Bayside has become one of the most sought-after areas in Melbourne. Bayside living opitimises comfortable living - with access to the beach, in bound and out bound train stations on the Sandrigham line. 

The question remains, do amenity items such as pools, tennis courts, lounge areas, and rooftops offer a more attractive proposition for purchase over location and floorplans? Understandably it remains a personal choice, but Melbourne's apartment market is far to young to determine the consequences.

Whilst the infamous Brighton, Melbourne’s second most affluent suburb, is seemingly known to all, it is Sandringham, located only 10 minutes along Beach Rd, that is catching the eye of purchasers.

Located 16km southeast of Melbourne’s CBD, Sandringham, perched on Melbourne’s water edge offers a lifestyle of relaxation, convenience and community.

Developments such as Gardenside and Fernhill are offering two different experiences for those wanting to enter the market in Sandringham.

Gardenside is offering contemporary resort-style living amid extensive landscaped grounds. Gardenside invites you to discover exquisite one and two bedroom apartments in the extraordinary Sandy Hill lifestyle precinct.

Enjoy access to the Sandy Hill Club which features an outdoor infinity heated lap pool, sundeck, spa, sauna, gymnasium and function room. The hotel experience is extended through to the magnificent lobby, building manager, state-of-the-art security system, onsite café and secure basement car parking.

Conversely, those who are looking for an apartment with a little more wiggle room, and prefer to see Sandringham as the amenity, then Fernhill is ideal.

Fernhill, a boutique apartment development is also offering 28 upmarket apartments over 3 levels. The boutique apartments are in the heart of Sandringham and take advantage of close proximity to public transportation, Port Phillip Bay, sought after Primary and Secondary schools, excellent golf and sport recreation facilities and the wonderful Sandringham shopping village.
