Featuring a stunning, contemporary style and quality fittings, Altum by Northerly redefines retirement living.
The six-storey development at 10 Nautilus Crescent in Scarborough will contain a total of 51 apartments, with two and three-bedroom layouts available.
Northerly Group Australia Managing Director Michael Lawson said the development was designed to provide a resort-style living opportunity and would allow people to be as private or as social as they would like, with the importance of community being a major focus of the development.
“I think a big issue for people as they age is the fear of loneliness and isolation,” he said.
“We have looked to create a beautiful
place for people to live, set within a quiet part of the neighbourhood, surrounded by a fantastic community.”
The development ticks all the boxes, with inclusions such as wider doorways, hallways and showers, along with no trip hazards, according to Mr Lawson.
“There’s plenty of access, so if there are any mobility issues, you can easily have either a walker or a chair in there,” he said.
“If you need to fit handrails, you have the ability to do so and there’s no restriction. If you need it, it can be put in – we’d rather you be able to live safely and comfortably.”
Altum by Northerly is a five-star green-rated building, with design considerations in place to maximise on the natural elements, from sunlight to sea breezes.
“We’ve done a lot of work around making sure the natural light coming in is far in excess of what the design requirements are,” Mr Lawson said.
“The cross ventilation and all the other elements of passive-solar design have been incorporated – it’s really been well thought through.
“As an example, 80 per cent of our apartments will achieve a minimum of two hours of natural daylight in the living areas on the shortest day of the year.”
The facilities within the complex will include an indoor heated swimming pool, a hair and beauty salon, a resident’s lounge and cafe, a private dining room, a wine room, a Gold Class-style cinema, a yoga and pilates studio, a men’s shed, an arts and crafts room, a massage and treatment room, as well as an onsite concierge.
A sense of community is already sprouting roots, with a demolition party held early last month.
“I wanted to make sure all of our residents – the people that come to live at Altum – come along on the journey,” Mr Lawson said.
“I would like to ask our residents to take part in it, so when we’re pouring their slab we will invite them along to watch and even scribe their initials into the slab if they would like to.”
The development will be in situated in a secluded cul-de-sac not too far away from conveniences and lifestyle options.
“It’s only 450m from the beach and 850m to the clock tower in Scarborough,” Mr Lawson said.
“We’ve got a beautiful promenade and all the dining and leisure facilities down on Scarborough Beach. We’re also only 2.5km from the new Karrinyup Shopping Centre, which is going through an $800 million expansion.”
Altum by Northerly offers a deferred fee option, reducing the buyer’s ingoing contribution by 20 per cent, as well as the added benefit of no additional costs such as selling or make-good fees.
Two-bedroom apartments start from $834,000, or $695,000 if you opt for the deferred fee option. Three-bedroom apartments start at $1.08 million, or $900,000 for the deferred fee model.
