18 DECEMBER 2019 A new residential community is being built at Eastlakes that is destined to become an Australian paradise for golf-lovers. Eastlakes Live by Crown Group is located in a sought-after location because it is surrounded by five golf courses within a 9km radius, yet close to the city and beach. Three of the clubs are within 1km and two are world class — The Australian and The Lakes – making this heaven for anyone who likes life near a fairway.
What’s more, the suburb will be transformed by the addition of a new retail and dining precinct that form part of the development, which will add a huge shopping centre, dining precinct and medical centre to the area. Residents will have easy access to the city, which is just 4km away, and Coogee Beach, within a 15-minute drive.
Where to tee off near Eastlakes:
- The Australian Golf Club, Rosebery
- The Lakes Golf Club, Eastlakes
- Bonnie Doon Golf Club, Pagewood
- Moore Park Golf Club, Moore Park
- Woollahra Golf Club, Rose Bay
With an appealing design by internationally acclaimed architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp (fjmt), the new Eastlakes Live community will offer more than 500 luxury apartments and Crown Group’s signature resort-style health and fitness facilities including a 25m swimming pool and gym. Residents will also have a rooftop lounge, barbeque facilities, function room and landscaped gardens in which to socialise with friends, family and neighbours.
Construction began in October 2018 on stage one, which will comprise three buildings with a total 133 spacious one, two and three-bedroom apartments and four luxurious penthouses, as well as a retail zone with an ALDI supermarket, proposed Woolworths Metro and 10 specialty stores including a butcher, baker and chemist. Stage two will offer a new shopping centre that opens to the park and a dedicated eat street.
Crown Group Chief Operating Officer Pierre Abrahamse said Eastlakes Live was capturing the attention of the golfing and retiree community, because it offered more top-class golfing facilities than any other residential development in Australia with luxurious living and excellent lifestyle facilities, close to the city.
“This development creates an absolute paradise for those looking to live near the green – we are creating a residential community with luxury apartments above a shopping centre and dining precinct, all just a stone’s throw away from two of Australia’s top golf courses,” he said. “Eastlakes is undergoing a huge transformation and this development will make it a destination in itself – for eating out, shopping and golf.”
He said golf courses represented some of the last vestiges of vast open green spaces in rapidly growing cities such as Sydney, with beautiful scenery that attracts wildlife such as ducks, possums and frogs. There are also the benefits of not just playing, but the social aspect of joining a club and enjoying the club houses.
“Living at Eastlakes Live by Crown Group represents a chance to live close to some of the best fairways in Australia yet without the downsides of actually living on the green – errant golf balls, early morning greenkeepers and the expensive maintenance fees that come with living in a golf course community,” he said.
“We have apartments from $680,000 which represents a very affordable way of living near the green, with great resort-style facilities such as a 25m swimming pool and gym, rooftop lounge, barbeque facilities, function room and landscaped gardens in which to socialise with friends, family and neighbours.
“Golf courses are a great hub for socialising, whether you’re into golf or not. There’s also a lot of buzz when it comes to tournament time, as you may have major competition taking place on your doorstep. Adding to that, Eastlakes Live may well become the best 19th hole in Sydney, with a new restaurant alley just 1km from the nearest course and some great new stores when the shopping centre opens.”
