Balwyn’s The Andalusian targets owner-occupiers with customised floor plans

Some 30% of apartments have already been snapped at The Andalusian, the latest development to grace Melbourne’s leafy suburb of Balwyn.

The six-storey development by SPEC Property will comprise of 65 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments ranging from $359,000 to $1.5 million.

One-bed apartments range in size from 45 square metres to 66 square metres internally.

Two-bedroom apartments range from 65 square metres to 129 square metres and three bedders range from 111 square metres to 153 square metres.

Located at 182 Whitehorse Road, residents on level four and above will have views towards the city and Macedon ranges and will be able to design their ideal home with over 1,400 possible combinations of personal touches available.

Designed by Internal, apartments feature veneer surfaces, ceramic gloss beveled tiles, black chrome tap ware, wool carpets and porcelain bench tops in the kitchen.

The development will also include a resident’s lounge, reading room and dining table, as well as a BBQ terrace with an outdoor kitchen.

Tanya Sanchez of Synergy BSM says over 95% of sales have been to owner-occupiers, due to the fact that buyers can customize their apartment.

The Andalusian is only being sold locally.

“We don’t want to take our development offshore because we’re not targeting an investment market,” says Sanchez.

The Andalusian was officially launched on August 4 and has a scheduled completion date of mid-2014.
