Family buys at Mon Komo to downsize home and upsize lifestyle

An outstanding oceanfront terrace apartment at Kyko Group’s $150 million Mon Komo Development on the Redcliffe Peninsula has been purchased by a family from a neighbouring suburb looking to downsize their home and upsize their lifestyle.

The Mon Komo development had the perfect apartment for Brisbane couple Jodie and Leslie Comfort and their two children, and consistently attracts strong interest from buyers enticed by its oceanfront location, spacious apartments, timeless style and quality design.

The Comforts, originally from an inner-Brisbane suburb, were convinced they would need a bigger house and yard when their youngest child was born, and moved to the Moreton Bay suburb of North Lakes a few years ago.

From their Moreton Bay home they would visit the waterfront at Redcliffe every weekend to enjoy its seaside lifestyle, swimming at the beach and the café culture.

Jodie Comfort said during their visits they would dream about being able to enjoy a coastal lifestyle every day, and crave the freedom of living in an oceanfront apartment.

“We had recently bought a bigger house but found we didn’t need so much space and the maintenance was so time consuming – I didn’t want to be spending my nights and weekends cleaning a gigantic house!” Mrs Comfort said.

“We were increasingly interested in the idea of oceanfront apartment living and saw a terrace apartment advertised at Mon Komo, which was always our favourite building at Redcliffe,” she said.

“We didn’t hesitate to inspect the brand new two bedroom, two bathroom apartment, which was ready for us to move into straight away with no delay.

“The first thing that impressed us as we walked through the door was how spacious the apartment is – we were amazed!

“We walked through the large, open plan living area and were immediately drawn to the substantial outdoor terrace area, where we spend a lot of time together relaxing and enjoying the fresh ocean breeze.

“Both of the two bedrooms are luxuriously spacious, with our two boys very comfortably sharing a room.

“We converted a large storage cupboard into a study and still have plenty of excess storage space throughout the apartment.”

The Comfort family fell in love with the apartment, bought it in March for $460,000 and feel like they are living their dream.

“Living here feels so luxurious, it’s like being on a permanent holiday,” Mrs Comfort said.

“We all love our stylish new home with its expansive outdoor living space and water views, on-site gym, outdoor and heated indoor pools which we don’t have to maintain,” she said.

“Redcliffe has a really sophisticated coastal vibe with hip bars, restaurants, cafes and shops that are conveniently located just doors down from Mon Komo.

“Our apartment at Mon Komo is perfect for us now and will continue to be ideal when the kids grow up and leave home so we aren’t planning to move anywhere else, we absolutely love our life here.”

The director of Mon Komo development company Kyko Group, Bill Jenkings, said Redcliffe’s profile as a highly desirable suburb is increasing due to its coastal lifestyle and convenient location close to Brisbane.

“The Mon Komo site was carefully selected to make the most of the area’s natural beauty and cosmopolitan coastal lifestyle while being within easy reach of the Brisbane CBD and the international and domestic airports,” Mr Jenkings said.

“Also, the new $1.15 billion dual-track rail link due for completion mid next year will connect the Redcliffe Peninsula to Brisbane CBD, enhancing the accessibility of the coastal suburb,” he said.

“In addition, ongoing upgrades to the Gateway Motorway and the Bruce Highway are increasingly improving links from Redcliffe to the Brisbane airport, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.”

Mon Komo marketing manager and TOTAL Property Group managing director Adrian Parsons said Jodie and Leslie Comfort’s apartment purchase represents great value for money because of the limited availability of luxury oceanfront properties in Redcliffe and cannot be compared to anything else on the market

“Apartments in Mon Komo’s residential tower are priced from $345,000 for a one bedroom design, with a selection of layouts available up to three bedrooms plus study configurations,” he said.

“Investment apartments in Oaks Mon Komo short-stay apartment tower are priced from $295,000 with an attractive return of 6 per cent plus room for capital growth.

“Oaks Mon Komo apartments offer an immediate investment return starting at $345 per week, enviable occupancy rates of 82 per cent, and the additional security of a performance undertaking agreement guaranteeing a return of permanent tenancy rates for the first two years.”

Mon Komo is situated at 99 Marine Parade, Redcliffe, offering one to three bedroom apartments featuring floor to ceiling glass to maximise natural light and ocean views, oversized entertainer balconies seamlessly integrated with spacious open plan layouts, timeless stone and timber finishes, kitchens equipped with European appliances and ample storage space.
