Resort-style living from the comfort of your home 

At first glance you’d be forgiven for assuming the latest building completion in Ascot Waters was a resort. Featuring absolute waterfront views, contemporary facade with generous balconies, complete with private boat pens and jetty this holiday-style living could very much be your everyday. Marina East is the latest luxury low-rise apartment development by Blackburne, located on the secluded riverbank of Ascot Waters. 

Designed by award-winning architects Hames-Sharley, who were inspired by the movement of the Swan River and the wooden boat sheds that once rested on its banks, Marina East has recently finished construction. 

With more than 70 per cent of residences already sold, Blackburne Managing Director and Founder Paul Blackburne said interested buyers needed to get in fast. 

“Locations like this, with expansive river views over nature stretching to the city, are few and far between in Perth,” Mr Blackburne said. 

“And while Marina East’s convenient proximity to the CBD, the airport and Optus Stadium has been a huge selling point, it’s been the secluded waterside offering that’s been the real drawcard.” 

From the neighbouring lush parklands and golf course to the private boat pens on Marina East’s doorstep, Mr Blackburne said no expense had been spared when it came to capitalising on the development’s surroundings to create the ultimate waterfront getaway lifestyle. 

“The residents’ recreational centre includes a water sports storage room with stand-up paddle boards available for use, as well as a gym, sauna and yoga room, catering to both relaxation and activities,” he said. 

“Alternatively, residents can escape to the private internal gardens, complete with barbecue alfresco dining area – a place to entertain friends or enjoy the green oasis. 

Marina East offers the choice of one, two or three bedroom apartments and penthouses, and while each differ in size, Mr Blackburne said promoting a feeling of relaxed luxury was consistent throughout. “Our architects have designed the complex to take full advantage of natural light, river breezes and water views, complementing nature’s serene elements with hotel-themed deep freestanding baths,” he said. 

“Elegant high quality fixtures and finishes are another prominent feature of Marina East, with  low-maintenance designer timber flooring helping to maintain that stress-free vibe that comes with being on holiday.

“We’ve also paid special attention to integrating those staple comforts of the home, such as ensuring adequate storage and installing quality kitchen cabinetry.” 

Mr Blackburne said Marina East had received significant interest from downsizers, as well as working professionals. “At Marina East, the bustling life of the city is within reach yet you’re surrounded by the calming sounds of nature,” he said. 

“By offering the best of ‘both worlds’, and backed by the fact there is limited supply in the area, Marina East has easily become one of Perth’s fastest selling apartment developments.”

Mr Blackburne said recent completion of construction had resulted in remaining apartments being snapped up fast, however the company was still accepting expressions of interest. 

“For us, it’s the natural evolution of high-end apartment living in Perth to pair those resort aesthetics with the traditional concepts of a home,” Mr Blackburne said. 

“We hope residents will appreciate that Marina East offers more than just an apartment building, it’s a vibrant waterside community.”
