Project of the Month | Castles By The Sand
It couldn't get more idyllic than beachfront living at one of the country's finest beaches.
With the deep blue Pacific Ocean only steps away, 'Beaches' is the final precinct in Coast Papamoa, a development by international developer Frasers Property that took out Excellence and Best in Category in the Natural Habitats Urban Land Developments Category at the 2018 Property Council New Zealand Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards.
Described as the final 'jewel in the crown' of the development, Beaches is located on Papamoa beachfront, and is part of Frasers Property's 24-hectare Coast Papamoa Beach estate. The 1.4-hectare precinct has 23 exclusive freehold sections.
With coastal views, each title includes joint ownership of 1.2 hectares of rolling sand dunes with private beach access - paying respect to the site's environmental and cultural importance and ensuring long-term sustainability of the dune system.
"To be nominated as a national finalist is recognition of our vision and of the team's hard work to integrate a holistic understanding of the natural and built environment," says Frasers Property development manager Kranish Reddy.
"We've built on our success throughout the rest of the development and have created something truly unique in the Bay of Plenty," he says.
Frasers Property has worked hard to develop a unique site and for efficient use of beachfront land sensitive to the ecological, landscape and topographical characteristics of the site.
The precinct's focal point features a 1400-square-metre central shared reserve boasting seating areas, a pergola, stainless-steel water feature, custom picnic tables and benches, grass relaxation areas, rows of pohutukawa trees, nikau palm feature-planting and sculptural outdoor showers atop a wooden boardwalk.
"With sweeping views towards Mount Maunganui, Beaches is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a slice of beachfront property on one of New Zealand's most loved stretches of coastline."
All sections in Beaches Coast Papamoa have now sold, proving that the Frasers Property team have created not only an award-winning development, but also an attractive and vibrant community.
