New development raising standards ever higher

As lifestyle, convenience and effortless upkeep become ever-increasing priorities for homebuyers, apartments are emerging as the go-to choice for many Western Australians.

From young professionals hungry for urban accessibility to empty nesters keen to downsize without sacrificing quality, the allure of apartment living spans multiple generations.

These residences are revelling in a raft of unparalleled advantages – captivating outlooks, hassle-free living, well-designed functional spaces, exclusive access to resort-style facilities, and easy access to public transport and essential amenities.

This multifaceted appeal has paved the way for transformative projects like Blackburne’s newly launched $350 million West Village in Karrinyup – a development promising to offer a new calibre of luxury apartment living and convenience.

“West Village is not just about opulence, it’s about creating a lifestyle,” Blackburne Developments Director Matthew Chau said.

“Most residents will wake up to panoramic views of the ocean extending over North Beach and Trigg, along with vistas of Lake Gwelup and the Perth city skyline.

“Imagine living surrounded by natural bushland, serene beaches and suburban tranquility while still enjoying a level of vibrancy and convenience that could rival inner-city life.”

Situated on the doorstep of the newly redeveloped Karrinyup shopping centre, West Village is a mere 15 minutes from the Perth CBD and just 3km from the beach. Building on the success of Blackburne’s East Village – a $75 million project offering 94 residences, which are 97 per cent sold, on the shopping centre’s eastern boundary – West Village promises an even more elevated experience.

Designed by MJA Studio, the project will feature 253 luxury apartments across two buildings of 13 and 23 storeys, connected by a podium housing more than 2500sqm of resort-style amenities and landscaped gardens for residents to enjoy.

“Most of our residences are designed for owner-occupiers and are 10-20 per cent larger than typical apartments,” Mr Chau said.

“You’ll find expansive main suites, kitchens bigger than found in most homes and plenty of storage. The apartments seamlessly connect to outdoor living areas, which take in the expansive views.”

Inside, the apartments boast premium kitchens featuring high-end European appliances and stone benchtops.

A fully appointed butler’s pantry, walk-in robes and a spacious ensuite with a freestanding bath are part of the larger designs.

For those seeking an even higher level of luxury, the Platinum Collection of 63 exclusive suites, including 12 penthouses, offers features like oak timber floors, elevated ceiling heights, highly detailed floor-to-ceiling kitchen cabinetry, Miele cooking appliances, bespoke LED lighting and, of course, the best vistas.

The amenities will also enhance West Village.

“From a swimming pool with private cabanas to a sauna, a steam room, a fully equipped gym and even a golf simulator, we’re raising the bar on everyday living,” Mr Chau said.

“We’re also introducing additional communal spaces tailored for various moods and occasions.

“There will be a residents’ lounge for relaxed socialising, a private dining room with a chef’s kitchen for those special celebrations, a wine lounge for connoisseurs, and an outdoor barbecue and a firepit area – perfect for both lazy Sunday afternoons, as well as festive gatherings with family and friends.

“With construction set to commence next year, we are confident West Village will help to address the severe undersupply of premium-grade residences in Perth’s northern coastal suburbs.”

West Village’s available apartment configurations range from one-bedroom residences from $600,000 to $7.9 million dual-level penthouses featuring more than 520sqm of palatial living space and a freestanding internal staircase.

The $1 million display suite will be open for the first time at the grand launch, which will be held at the Northcourt Building in Karrinyup on Saturday October 7 and Sunday October 8 from 10am-2pm.

Buyers can walk through a kitchen and a bathroom, climb the eight-storey viewing tower and enjoy an immersive experience to gain an insight into what life will be like at the complex.
