Industry salutes the Islands Pindan’s residential project lauded for ground-breaking design and sustainability


LEADING WA construction firm Pindan has been praised for its ground-breaking Islands project in South Beach. The company scooped one of the top awards at last month’s 2010 Master Builders-Bankwest Excellence in Construction Awards at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. Pindan raised the stakes as one of the State’s most versatile construction companies, picking up Best Multi Unit Development for South Beach’s Islands project, as well as double honours for Rio Tinto’s new offices at Perth Domestic Airport, listed as a finalist in both Best Commercial Building and Best Building Fitout categories. The recently completed $72 million Stage One of the Islands venture unleashed 50 world-class luxury units into Perth’s highly competitive top end market. Features include an on-site gym, pool and cafe in addition to panoramic views of

Stage one of the Islands development released 50 world-class luxury units on to the market.

Garden, Carnac and Rottnest Islands. Scott Davison, Pindan’s director of business development, said the story behind the project was as fascinating as the popular beachside district itself. “Right from the start our client, Stockland, understood how passionate the local community was about protecting the heritage and natural environment of the South Beach site,� he said. “With that in mind, Sydney-based architect Architectus in conjunction with local architect Cameron Chisholm & Nicol came up with a perfect solution that merged design excellence with environmental sustainability.�

Before construction began, the former industrial site was completely repatriated and the adjacent foreshore rejuvenated after years of neglect. Mr Davison said while the structure and form of Islands appears simple, the architecture was in fact very intelligent and sophisticated. “The end result speaks for itself – a beautiful balance of contemporary luxury with genuine respect for the local ecology,â€? he said. Mr Davison credits Pindan’s ingrained philosophy to work as a team with its clients and a focus on quality as the reason for its continued success.â–

‘Most comprehensive’ market price tool launched Professionals Property Index promises accurate monthly reflection of residential sales PROFESSIONALS Real Estate Group has launched a new market index in partnership with RP Data Information Services to accurately track movements in the WA residential property market. The Professionals Property Index (PPI) is designed to aid those buying and selling residential property, as well as provide a tool to reflect movements in the local economy. Professionals Real Estate Group CEO David Hobbs said the monthly index was the most comprehensive property model available to the public, providing an accurate monthly reflection of sales across

the Perth metropolitan market. “Professionals Group recognise that good decisions require good information, so the PPI is based on sales price information from 200 Perth suburbs to provide ‘average’ monthly dwelling prices and monthly price changes,� Mr Hobbs said. “While most property indexes quote median prices for houses and units separately, the PPI captures average price changes across all dwellings to provide a more accurate snapshot of where the market is at. “It’s also a very valuable predictive tool to track property market and economic

trends over the longer term, particularly for commercial banking and lending institutions.â€? Mr Hobbs said the Professionals Property Index used the most recent monthly sales information supplied by RP Data Information Services. “Published monthly, the PPI will provide an easily digestible snapshot of the market – where it is going and by how much it is moving. Armed with this information people can make informed decisions about when to buy and sell, and to generally assess the economic climate,â€? Mr Hobbs said. â–

High rise in apartment price THE median price of multiresidential properties such as apartments is on its way up. Figures released by REIWA for the March 2010 quarter show a growth of 17.1 per cent to $410,000. According to Propell National Valuers valuations manager Travis Coleman, the apartments market, along with the overall property market in Perth, performed reasonably well over the past year as a result of renewed confidence in the economy and low interest rates. However, the outlook for the property market over the coming year is more subdued due to the prospects that interest rates might rise, and uncertainty about the outcome of the Federal election. “In the current market, there is now a plentiful supply of apartments, especially in the middle to top end of the market, and this creates good opportunities for people wanting to secure a well located apartment for a competitive price,’’ Mr Coleman said. “If you are considering buying an apartment during the coming year, the most important consideration you should give is the location of the property. “Lifestyle is a major driver of the real estate market and coastal as well as inner city areas are becoming more popular with property buyers because of these lifestyle drivers. “For example, if you are considering focusing on coastal living, then Mandurah offers excellent opportunities for buyers because of a large supply of quality apartments around the marina and foreshore area. “Alternatively, if you are focusing on inner city living, then apartments located in the Northbridge area will benefit strongly from the massive new investment in the NorthBridge Link project.â€? â–

The Ultim ate Lifestyle Your real estate questions answered by Niki Peinke, director of The Property Exchange in Subiaco Q: What tax do I have to pay when I sell my property? A: This depends on whether you have bought your property to live in or as an investment. If it is your principal place of residence (that is, the house you live in) there is no tax to pay when you sell. However, if it is an investment property (and is rented out) you will have to pay Capital Gains Tax. And if you buy and sell within 12 months the Capital Gains Tax is higher. For specific advice you need to contact your accountant or financial planner. Q: I’ve heard a bit about buyers’ agents lately, but I’m not sure what they do. Can you explain their role? A: A buyers’ agent helps buyers find their perfect home or investment, and can even take care of the paperwork on their behalf. There is, of course, a fee charged for this service. They are especially attractive for people who are too busy to do the legwork required to find the right property. Buyers’ agents are also involved in negotiating price on the buyer’s behalf. But a note of caution here – they can sometimes negotiate so hard to try and get the best price for the buyer that they risk losing the property altogether. Q: I recently made an offer on a property. The following day the agent rang to say that

SHENTON PARK Number of house sales for past year (to March 31, 2010): 51 Median house price: $955,000 Growth Rates 1 year: 3.2% 5 year: 11.0% 10 year: 10.7% Source: REIWA

another offer had come in on the same property and asked if I wanted to raise my offer. As I had put in my offer on the day before, shouldn’t mine have been dealt with first? A: There is no fixed limit on the time a seller has to respond to an offer, and it is not necessarily done on a first come, first served basis. So no, there was no obligation to deal with your offer first. In this case, the agent was giving you the opportunity to improve your offer in the knowledge that you were in competition with another buyer.

Specialising in individually designed luxury homes LAND sales in the Rockingham-Kwinana area are rising strongly, with one lot being sold every five hours on average. REIWA figures show 1856 lots were sold in the region during the year ending March 2010, indicating a 45 per cent sales increase. Wilson & Hart Home Builders managing director Anthony Kinder says the area is a hot spot in Perth, followed by the sale of 1303 lots in Armadale-Serpentine and 1096 lots in north-east Wanneroo over a 12-month period. “Land sales in the Rockingham-Kwinana area were particularly strong in Baldivis with some 941 lots sold over the year and accounting for half of all land sales in this region of Perth,’’ he said. “One of the key reasons is that prices are very affordable in the RockinghamKwinana area. “The median price of a block of land in Baldivis, for example, is just $176,500 which compares to a much higher median lot price of $225,000 for the north-east Wanneroo area. “Quality estates such as Settlers Hills, River Gums and Baldivis North are attracting property buyers to the Baldivis area, and one of the most significant trends

in new home building is that people want to build a quality home in a carefully designed estate.” Mr Kinder said new housing estates in Canning Vale set this trend more than a decade ago and it is again being repeated in Baldivis with property buyers being attracted to the area because of the quality of the estates. “There are now several boutique housing estates in Baldivis which have been carefully developed with a strong focus on lifestyle,’’ he said. “Property buyers understand that the Rockingham area is expanding rapidly, and over the medium term house prices in Baldivis will increase significantly.” Wilson & Hart found that the opening of the Perth to Bunbury freeway in recent months had also contributed to the stimulated demand for housing in the Baldivis area as it had taken high volume traffic out of what people could see were now normal suburban roads. “This had been a major turning point. “Home buyers can now see Baldivis functioning as a traditional family area that can access the freeway, north and south, without being caught up in heavy traffic,” Mr Kinder said. ■

Blend of minimalist luxury and contemporary grace The owner has put her talents to work ensuring this stunning property is as easy to live in as it is on the eye. By JANE EVANS HAVING done it repeatedly, the building process is something Samantha Buller is well acquainted with. So when it came time to design her home in Swanbourne, Ms Buller knew exactly what she wanted. The stunning open-plan property, overlooking parkland, is a blend of minimalist luxury and contemporary grace. Extensive glass is coupled with Spanish sandstone and Carrera marble throughout, creating a setting that is opulent but also restrained.

From the moment you enter the home, it is apparent Ms Buller understands the relationship between design and space. The owner of RG Madden Design store in Subiaco said she worked closely with the builders, Oswald homes, during the construction. A wide concrete staircase with frameless glass balustrade is a striking focal point of the central living area. Water encloses both sides of this space, a koi fish pond on the right and 8m lap pool on the left. Commercial aluminium stack back doors frame these

garden vistas beautifully and can be opened right up to allow the elements of nature inside. The master suite is undeniably lavish with a wall of full-length glass capturing the northern panorama. The massive marble lined ensuite comprises a bath, enormous shower and separate vanity. With features such as a CCTV security system, smart wiring throughout, illuminated garden beds, a Chemigem pool system and Foxtel points in several rooms, Ms Buller has made certain the home is as easy to maintain as is it is on the eye. ■

PERIOD renovations are no easy feat, but the owners of this circa 1920s former worker’s cottage did it to perfection. Over 10 years they transformed their Napier street property into a stunning colonial-meets-contemporary character home. Original features of the era have been beautifully retained, and combined with modern fittings and finishings. Blackbutt floorboards and Victorian french doors throughout create a stylish, elegant interior, complemented by high ceilings and decorative cornices with wide, traditional skirting boards. There is almost a New York Upper East Side apartment feel to the Nedlands residence. “We love its feel from the moment you walk through the door, through to the back,” said one of the owners. “It is warm and homely while big and light throughout.” A spacious open-plan living and dining room features a vaulted ceiling with a huge marble-clad fireplace and

library shelving, evoking images of cosy nights against a backdrop of flickering flames. Bifold doors open out to a limestone paved alfresco area and landscaped-terraced gardens with a stunning swimming pool and Balinesestyle pavilion. A formal lounge or sitting room at the front of the home adjoins a large front bedroom, making a beautiful guest suite or master retreat. The contemporary gourmet kitchen is Miele-equipped. There are three minor bedrooms upstairs, each fitted with built-in robes. Connecting them is a fabulous second living area flanked by a timber-decked balcony, glass balustrade and cafe blinds, overlooking the pool. An internal intercom and ducted airconditioning are other features of the home. ■

Beachside bliss with a romantic history FORMERLY the site of the old blue house in Scarborough, these vibrant coastal homes on Guadalupe Hill offer a fabulous lifestyle near the beach. Situated within walking distance to Scarborough and Trigg beaches and just minutes from popular cafes, restaurants and attractions, you will never have to venture far from home. With your choice of five ‘neoMexican’-styled beach homes, Guadalupe Hill represents a vibrant and harmonious addition to its seaside neighbourhood. Featuring commanding ocean views from most rooms, quality internal fittings, large living spaces and a seafront entertaining deck and rear sun deck, the homes have three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Realmark agent Scott Swingler said it was a unique development, and the elevated ocean views made it a must-see for premium property seekers.

“This is a serious sale, and if you have an interest in these properties, I strongly encourage you to be at the auction,’’ he said. “Guadalupe Hill represents another chapter in the colourful history of the site, which once housed a prominent art deco building. “The original art deco building became the centre of attention during the nineties when the owner refurbished it and painted it ultramarine blue. “A Malaysian princess then bought the site, gained permission to demolish the ‘blue house’ and had plans drawn up for a ‘palace’. “The site was then purchased after the princess abandoned the palace plans, and Guadalupe Hill was developed in a labour of love.” The homes also feature a home office, undercroft parking with storage cellar and reverse-cycle air-conditioning. ■
