Lion Residences is all about “sophisticated living without the expense” says the duo behind the proposed mixed tiered development in coveted Double Grammar Zone that is due for completion in 2019.
Straddling leafy Epsom and cosmopolitan Newmarket, Lion Residences designed by multi-award winning firm, Leuschke Architects will stand on the site of the former head office for Lion Breweries.
It offers contemporary designs aligned to matching lifestyles running the gambit from chic New York-style lofts to one-, two-, three- or four-bedroom apartments, spacious penthouses and terrace houses complete with a sun-soaked deck.
Prices start at $645,000 through to $1,995,000.
“This is a new possibility for many wanting to simplify their life” says Greg Liggins, director of Home Developments Limited.
Whether you’re contemplating downsizing, looking for a ‘lock up and leave’ or perhaps looking at buying post-separation, Lion Residences is a cleverly crafted mix of elegant living in a highly sought after location.
The brand new state-of-the art Les Mills gym is next door, Grafton train station opposite, the Domain just across the road and the bustling precinct of Newmarket with its boutique shopping and eateries nearby.
Greg and co-director, Jonathan Ferrier spend an inordinate amount of time figuring out the best layouts and fearlessly championing the council to maintain the north facing aspects in their pursuit of making “the best living spaces possible”.
“Professionals were looking at us thinking why aren’t you towing the party line?” Jonathan laughs. “Well, we bucked all of that to produce the best product possible — a home that people will actually enjoy living in.”
Both collaborate with buyers working out what they want to allow for a certain amount of customisation within the defined footprint of the floor area.
Some apartments have two living rooms. The terrace houses perfect for families boast large decks. Even singletons enjoy fantastic views from the one-bedroom apartments in the secure, gated community.
Interior designer Ray Lind inspired by his world travels has sourced boutique surface finishes from standout oak flooring to immaculate marble bench tops and beautiful customised ceramics.
Half of the project has been snapped up already as owner occupiers are buying off-the-plans after zeroing in on the combination of panoramic views, north-facing aspect offering lots of afternoon sunshine and excellent privacy.
A sweeping 180-degree photograph of the actual view in the sales suite is a show stopper. It spans Rangitoto Channel to Browns Island looking across the green belt past the museum to the ocean. It’s a snippet shot not from the top but a vantage point half way up.
“So if you’re downsizing from St Heliers or Remuera you’ll still feel at home — all these living spaces have unique attributes so you won’t be disappointed by visiting the showroom to take a look.”
With that in mind, Lion Residences ticks all the boxes — exclusive urban living at its most alluring.
