Christchurch CBD's Cranmer Gardens Offers Exceptional Value
Cranmer Gardens Offers Exceptional Value And Flexibility in CBD
The competitively priced apartments and penthouses in new luxury residential complex Cranmer Gardens is attracting discerning buyers wanting to return to the inner city.
Local buyers have invested more than $13 million in Cranmer Gardens in just over 10 weeks, with interest driven by those looking to retire to the city and busy professionals aged over 40. All buyers are Canterbury residents who have purchased an apartment or penthouse as a private residence.
“There is a huge gap in the market for generously sized, superb quality, high-end apartments in Christchurch, and Cranmer Gardens is meeting this demand,” says Judy Curnow, the development’s Sales Manager.
“Opportunities to live in an architecturally designed, low-rise, residential development on a prestigious inner city site don’t come up very often. Those that don’t act will be left wondering if something of this quality, size and location will become available again in the near future.”
With prices ranging from $965,000 to over $3 million for some Penthouses, there are many great options available on offer.
Quality, size and location
Contemporary architecture complements the spacious footprint afforded by each of the high-spec, single level apartments at Cranmer Gardens. Each apartment comes with either two or three bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms, expansive private balconies and large windows to provide an abundance of natural light. All ground floor apartments are elevated to ensure privacy and also feature large secluded courtyards. The three bedroom penthouses with large outdoor spaces and stunning views range in size from 285m2 to 397m2.
The development is located adjacent to the beautiful Cranmer Square so homeowners can take advantage of the revitalised central city. Generous basement parking for residents and designated car parking for visitors, shared greenspaces and courtyards with well-established landscaping are also desirable features.
The development’s design combines cutting-edge modern architecture with the neo-gothic style of the historic Christchurch Normal School, which previously occupied the site. Fifty truckloads of the original Halswell stone will be used in the complex’s landscaping and courtyard walls. Seven of the remaining 1980’s award winning townhouses and villas have been retained, becoming a seamless part of Cranmer Garden’s aesthetic urban design.
Add your personal touch
The flexibility that comes with purchasing an apartment or penthouse off -the-plan is a major attraction for astute buyers wanting to put their own personal touch on what will become their new home. By securing an apartment early in the process, buyers have the freedom to choose an apartment or penthouse that is well located within the complex to best suit their style of living.
They can create bespoke interiors by adding their own ideas and finishing touches that will individualise their spacious luxury home. The interiors will be constructed with a 2.7 metre stud to enhance the feeling of spaciousness and elegance in every room. All apartments have generous wall space to hang beautiful artwork or add shelving or wall units for books and personal treasures.
Additional bedrooms can also be customised to include a private den, art room or library. Cranmer Gardens has a great range of generously sized, luxury apartments and penthouses available.
Lock-up and leave
The opportunity to co-locate between Christchurch and other regional towns or major cities is extremely attractive to those seeking a safe and secure development that offers a low maintenance, easy living lifestyle in the inner city.
Cranmer Gardens is the perfect option for homeowners in Queenstown, Wanaka, Tekapo, Akaroa, and outside of Christchurch who want to have an apartment for business, to enjoy city attractions, or build closer connections to friends and family.
“A number of buyers have a second home in other locations and they want to have the flexibility to lock-up and leave their apartment whenever they desire or travel for three to six months a year. Cranmer Gardens presents an opportunity for buyers to simplify their current living arrangements without sacrificing on quality,” Judy said.
A secure investment
Cranmer Gardens marks the successful collaboration between nationally acclaimed architect Kerry Mason, a director of Christchurch based MAP Architects, and the NewUrban Group. The NewUrban Group is undertaking a series of developments in Christchurch’s central suburbs, with the primary focus of creating high-end homes and buildings with luxury finishes designed by award-winning local architectural firms.
The Group maintains a strong financial position and is also constructing the high-end modernistic housing development Lintrathen Gardens in Fendalton. The Group’s largest project is the seven storey Health Research and Education facility on Oxford Terrace adjacent to the Christchurch Hospital.
Buy now at market rates
Purchasing an apartment off -the-plan offers exceptional value because buyers can secure their desired residence at market rates.
“Cranmer Gardens is very competitively priced and buyers should feel very secure that these high end apartments and penthouses compare very favourably to other developments currently on offer in the city,” Judy said.
Buyers only need to commit a 10 percent deposit to secure one of these luxury apartments or penthouses off -the-plan, which is the perfect solution for those considering a property move within the next few years. The balance will be due on completion towards the end of 2019.
