The Next Level In Future-Proofing Your Home

7 Jun 2019

Once the exclusive domain of the skyscraper and mega mansion, demand for home lifts is on the rise. Buyers are looking to make their homes accessible to the whole family and the inclusion of a lift means that the elderly or disabled can access all levels of a home with ease. Those looking to buy their forever home are attracted to properties with a lift as it means they will be able to stay put as they grow older and less mobile.

Partner Alexander Phillips and David Tyrrell’s recent sale of 18 St Thomas Street, Bronte is a perfect example of how a lift can provide peace of mind in the long term. David says, “Gres de la Mer is an exceptional home offering over 600sqm internally spread over four levels so the five-person Domus lift enables easy access from the top level and garaging right down to the pool and gardens. It essentially means that the family can stay forever without having to worry about access issues and, of course, bringing in groceries and supplies for entertaining is an absolute dream.“

Alexander and David have listed another luxurious contemporary beach house with a high-speed lift at 17a Blandford Avenue, Bronte. Designed by Nick Bell Architects, the newly built beach house captures sweeping elevated ocean views from its commanding vantage point between Bronte and Tamarama Beaches. David says, “This striking new home features level lift access from the street and double garaging to all four levels ensuring that the home is future-proofed. All the entertaining space and a heated spa pool is on the top level so guests can take the lift up and enjoy the views.”
