If you’re looking at purchasing a new family home, you may not have considered apartment living. At Latitude Leighton Beach by Mirvac, an increasing number of families are calling the ocean side development home. Mirvac have already built a number of stunning architecturally designed apartment buildings at Leighton Beach, like the almost sold-out Latitude building. Compass by Mirvac is their next exciting project that re-imagines urban life for West Australian families. We take a walk through an apartment in the Latitude development, to get a feel for what we could expect for Mirvac’s Compass development, which is being built in 2019.
The Benefits of Apartment Living for Families
An increasing number of families are discovering the benefits of living in an apartment and realising that the Australian dream does not necessarily have to include that huge house on a quarter acre block – most new house and land packages are much smaller these days. Busy lifestyles coupled with a love of being active and outdoors, lends to apartment living much more now, than 30 years ago.
There are so many advantages to living in a smaller space. Far less time is spent on household chores, and there’s next to no gardening – though lush indoor plants and balcony herb gardens will keep green thumbs happy!
A reduced amount of household duties and maintenance means more time to enjoy the things you love with your family, which is handy as Compass by Mirvac is being built just 200 meters from Leighton Beach.
What can Compass by Mirvac Offer Families?
Each architecturally designed apartment includes open plan living with a beautifully appointed kitchen, dining and lounge area.
The kitchens feature Smeg or Miele appliances, stone benchtops and integrated appliances that beg for someone to cook up a storm.
Many apartments feature study nooks, as well as spacious, double sized bedrooms. And good news – an apartment doesn’t have to be cluttered, with many clever storage solutions, hidden laundries and lots of built in wardrobe space.
There are also luxurious, well sized bathrooms, perfect for a bubble bath!
A secure lock up and leave lifestyle offers a freedom to travel and leave your home without any security concerns. Intercoms and multi-point access cards also offer peace of mind for when you are at home. The apartments offer smart design features like a master power switch that turns off lights and air-conditioning as you leave. This clever energy saving means less running costs, making purchasing an apartment at Mirvac Compass more affordable.
There will be plenty of outdoor space to explore with private manicured gardens and a rooftop sunset lounge for entertaining.
