Life doesn’t get better

Life doesn’t get better

Imagine being stuffed full of turkey, unable to move from your penthouse living area, and having a concierge at the tip of your fingers during the festive season at Newstead’s Chester & Ella.

A quick dial to the concierge desk and you can have your dog walked, prawns delivered for Christmas and kept in your fridge, or a gardener organised to tidy up your outdoor area.

Developed by Kokoda Property Group, the two-tower project includes 20 penthouses which have recently been launched to the market.

Fifty per cent of sub-penthouses and penthouses have sold.

Kokoda Property has developed the stunning Chester & Ella development at Newstead.

The penthouses for sale range in price from $1.75 million to $3.8 million. All come with car parks, at least three, and some with even more.

Kokoda Property head of marketing Philippa Allan said there were many different configurations of penthouses available.

“There are four-bedroom penthouses, some have four plus a study, and some have three plus a study. Generally it’s three to four bedrooms and some have been designed with separate lift access,’’ she said.

The internal space of penthouses range in size from 138sq m to 224sq m.

She said the balconies were extremely spacious.

Ms Allan said while the penthouses were all about luxury living, residents were still able to enjoy many shared amenities onsite.

She said a concierge service was available seven days a week and not a virtual service.

“There’s someone actually on site,” Ms Allan said.

“If you want your apartment cleaned, to organise a dog walker, get your dry cleaning sent away and delivered back to your apartment, that can be done.

“They can organise your car to be washed and if you need tickets to a show in town, or transport booked for a big event, that can also be done.”

Through the middle of the building there is a communal lounge and dining space that can be booked, Ms Allan said.

“There is a 20-seat custom-built table being built in the space as it’s too big to fit in the door.

“Onsite there is a gym, two rooftop swimming pools with high-end cabanas, putting green and a cinema.”

Ms Allan said most of the penthouses had pools or plunge pools.

From grand feature walls in the penthouse bedrooms, to pendant lighting in the living areas, Ms Allan said marble entries and never to be built out views were a drawcard to the project.

She said penthouse buyers so far have included a family that travel the world for business and would make Chester & Ella their Brisbane base, a single man who was downsizing and a couple relocating from the Coast.
