Think a premium waterside location comes with an equally premium price tag? Think again.

At the new Essence on Sutton development on Brisbane’s Redcliffe Peninsula, residents will enjoy stunningly designed spaces, convenient amenities and an enviable location right on Moreton Bay.

Essence on Sutton is set in an enviable position overlooking Redcliffe’s Margate and Suttons Beaches.

Starting at less than $700,000, these waterside apartments present a rare opportunity for coastal living, with construction set to start in the coming months.

Luxury living

Each of the 26 apartments within Essence on Sutton delivers calibre and luxury at every turn.

Designed by Hayes Anderson Lynch Architects, there are two, three and four-bedroom designs on offer – most with amazing panoramic views over Moreton Bay.

“The beauty of this one is it’s the first of this type for a while in the central part of Redcliffe and nearby the water with high attentiveness to the owner-occupier,” says Warwick Stansfield from Crown Properties, the agency marketing the development.

Two-bedders start at only $655,000. Designed with owner-occupiers in mind, they’re ideal for both local and interstate buyers looking for a seachange.

Sophisticated interior finishes complement the stunning beachside location.

Every apartment has been designed to maximise the location, with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors to the expansive balconies.

The interiors are sleek and stylish featuring muted and elegant colour palettes, open-plan living and entertainment spaces, and quality fixtures and finishes.

Kitchens are decked out with stone benchtops and high-end European appliances, while the contemporary bathrooms exude luxury and style, featuring premium porcelain and stone tiling and high-grade tapware.

Within the complex, there’s convenient lift access and secure parking to give residents peace of mind.

Lots to love about Redcliffe

Essence on Sutton is located on Brisbane’s north coast, known for its easygoing lifestyle and village-style, old-world charm.

“It feels like a big town,” Stansfield says.

“The natural attractions are the pristine waters of Moreton Bay itself and the natural beauty of Suttons Beach and Margate Beach, which are less than 200 metres away.”

PropTrack economist Anne Flaherty says Essence on Sutton is going to be a “great prospect for a lot of different buyer types”.

“It’s a really appealing location, to be so close to the water and just an hour’s drive to the Brisbane CBD and airport – so you have all the benefits of being within commute time to a capital city with the incredible lifestyle amenity of the coast,” Flaherty says.

“Another great thing about Redcliffe is that it’s a suburb that holds its value. The median unit price has been consistently trending up in the past few years, with a growth of 8.9% in the last 12 months.

“People are willing to pay a premium to live close to the water, so being able to buy into such a fantastic location from under $700,000 will be a drawcard for many people.”

There is a wealth of restaurants and cafes across the waterfront and along the main strip, including shops, supermarkets, parks and reserves, and a highly regarded golf club. Good public transport links make it easy to venture into Brisbane’s CBD, too.

Stroll along the beach to the Redcliffe Markets – which are popular among locals and others from around Brisbane – selling food, produce and artisan products, and featuring a rotating entertainment roster.

From Redcliffe it’s an easy journey to Brisbane Airport, about 25 minutes by car, and the Sunshine Coast is just over an hour away.

Sitting on the wider Redcliffe Peninsula, which juts out into Moreton Bay, residents of Essence on Sutton have unparalleled access to the water.

A quality build

Essence on Sutton is spearheaded by Contrast Constructions, a family-owned, Brisbane-based developer and builder renowned for excellence.

Contrast Constructions boasts a nearly 25-year track record of completing premium multi-residential buildings across Queensland – from resort-style townhouse complexes to student and retirement accommodation.

Essence on Sutton will be brought to life by a premium local builder.

The design allows for seamless indoor-outdoor integration with spacious terraces.

Entertaining is a breeze.

The company places strong emphasis on the design and functionality of its projects, offering architecturally designed spaces that are highly liveable.

Essence on Sutton was conceived and will be constructed entirely in-house, meaning tighter quality control across the complete build process.

Construction is due to kick off just before Christmas 2023 and will take around 14 months to complete.
