IN A first for the Gold Coast, Sherpa has acquired an absolute beachfront site capable of building 34 apartments and is building only seven residences, along with four beach houses.
Perspective 488 – Palm Beach – is the epitome of the new brand, shifting the focus from density to lifestyle.
The detached component of Perspective 488 consists of three uniquely designed two-storey full-width beachfront houses, each with a secure double lock-up garage and man cave in the basement, effectively adding a third floor to the house.
Each block has the same frontage as most beach front blocks on Jefferson Lane, the Esplanade or Hedges Avenue in Mermaid Beach. But Sherpa takes advantage of the planning code to deliver a house that occupies the full width of the land lot.
Traditionally, apartments are aligned on narrow blocks with floorplans that stack rooms one behind the other with only the open-plan living area enjoying fantastic ocean views.
Sherpa Property Group’s approach turns this tradition 90 degrees, producing seven residences, each with nearly 23m of ocean frontage.
The change in perspective brings ocean views into the lounge, kitchen, and all the bedrooms.
