A jewel in the Redcliffe Peninsula’s Crown

It’s easy to understand the area’s attractions, both divine and commercial. The unique combination of natural beauty and delightful, mild winters meant that for many years Moreton Bay was a tightly kept secret by those in the know. But the remote and romantic Margate was soon to be discovered when the Hornibrook Highway was built in 1935. The Highway stretched 2.74km across the mouth of the Pine River and Hay’s Inlet linking Redcliffe to Brisbane, and was the longest road bridge in Australia. By 1969 over 20,000 cars were using the bridge each day and in 1974 a second bridge was built. In 2010 the third crossing was opened and was named the Ted Smout Bridge in honour of Queensland’s longest surviving WWI digger, Ted Smout, who lived in the area and died in 2004 aged 106.

Drive around Margate today and it’s easy to see how the past has contributed to the creation of this exceptionally charming little town. Heritage buildings butt up against quaint beach shacks and new developments, such as the ideally located Bathers Beachside, sit majestically on the tranquil, white sand beach where little children play safely while grownups relax and enjoy their well-earned vacation, sea change lifestyle, or retirement.

LIFESTYLE

Love at first sight

Imagine yourself as a proud owner of an apartment in Bathers Beachside. You are sitting on your east-facing balcony, watching the first rays of morning sun sparkle on the calm waters of Moreton Bay. The fresh ocean air fills your lungs and the taste of salt is on your lips. You may decide to take a swim or walk along the 2km of timber boardwalk that runs the length of the beach in front of you. As you pass by your new neighbours, they greet you with a friendly hello. Maybe you’ll stop in one of the purpose-built viewing shelters or sitting areas and have a chat. No one is in a rush at this time of day.

When retail therapy calls you can simply stroll the few short blocks to Margate’s CBD. Despite its laid-back, year-round holiday feel, your new home town has all the facilities associated with city life. The buzzing shopping precinct of Margate Village is home to many well-known retail and commercial businesses, including a Woolworths, a Terry White Chemist, most major banks, a post office and a choice of gyms. Numerous eateries and seaside stores are located along Margate Parade and Oxley Avenue, as well as two highly regarded medical centres within walking distance of your front door. If you do choose to jump in your car, then a few minutes’ drive north will take you to the cosmopolitan delights of Redcliffe’s cool cafés and sophisticated restaurants.

Whatever your favourite pastime, Margate has got you covered. For golfers there’s the nearby Redcliffe Golf Course. For sailors the Humpybong Yacht Club, Newport Marina and Scarborough Marina. For walkers and families there are all the delights of two beautiful reserves at either end of your very own stretch of beach. To the north is the family friendly Sutton’s Beach Leisure Area, Redcliffe’s only patrolled swimming beach. Sutton’s Beach features large grassy areas with shady trees, picnic facilities, shelters, barbeques and playground equipment, and is adorned with stately 150-year-old Norfolk palms. To the south you can explore Woody Point. There you can take a stroll along the 240-metre jetty, which was built in 1888 and reconstructed in 2008. Read the informative displays while you drop a line off the jetty and catch your dinner. You’re living in a fisherman’s paradise, after all.

On a hot day you can head to the famous Settlement Cove in Redcliffe. This scenic, man-made lagoon with full facilities is the perfect place to while away the day, take guests, or play like a child and imagine you’re on Adventure Island!

But nothing compares to the peace and serenity that descends at the end of the day, when you’re relaxing at home in your own piece of paradise. Sit back as a sailboat glides by with a pod of dolphins in its wake and watch the waves shimmer with the final rays of sunshine.

This is how life is meant to be enjoyed.

APARTMENTS

Refined waterfront luxury

Bathers Beachside is the Redcliffe Peninsula’s newest and most prestigious development.

Consisting of 24 large-scale apartments positioned directly opposite the water in Margate’s premier location – the site of the old Waltzing Matilda Hotel – Bathers Beachside has been designed for those for whom only the best will do.

The exclusive 3-bedroom luxury apartments are positioned to take advantage of their irreplaceable beachside location. Enjoying a perfect East-facing aspect, each residence is designed to capture the morning sun and cool sea breezes throughout the day. With never-to-be-built-out ocean views and large balconies that overlook the breathtaking Moreton Bay, these exquisite apartments deliver a level of design and a faultless attention to finish and detail unprecedented on the Bay.

All of the home-sized apartments consist of a spacious internal floorplan which flows onto large balconies. Some feature a ground-floor terrace, ideal for planters, and large pieces of outdoor furniture.

The flow-through living zone moves from the kitchen to the spacious lounge and onto the private balcony - the perfect spot for a sunlit brunch, evening barbeque or a well-earned sundowner.

LOCATION

Position perfect

Margate is ideally located on a scenic coastal strip famed for its sparkling 2km white sand beach, the longest uninterrupted stretch on the Redcliffe Peninsula.

Brisbane is a mere 37kms away via the Bruce Highway, and for commuters there are regular bus services. For frequent fliers and business travelers, Brisbane Airport is only a short 20-minute drive from your front door. To the north, a leisurely hour and 10-minute drive leads to the Sunshine Coast and all its attractions.

But of course, when you live in Margate it’s tempting never to leave. Everything you could ever want is on your doorstep. With Redcliffe and Scarborough to the north and Woody Point to the south, residents are spoilt for choice of things to do, and places to go. Nearby attractions include Suttons Beach, and Redcliffe’s CBD with its Museum, Botanic Gardens and Showgrounds, to name just a few. Or perhaps you’ll choose to head over to spectacular Moreton Island for the day for a little whale watching, or pack your tent and make a weekend of it. For lovers of water sports, there is no better place to live. Kayaking, sailing and windsurfing are popular local activities and if dropping a line in the sea is your favourite pastime, there’s no better place to be.

When you’re choosing where to live it’s reassuring to know you’re making a good investment. The Redcliffe Peninsula is considered a bright spot for investors and homebuyers alike in the south east Queensland property markets with a stunning 19.2 per cent increase in property values over the past 12 months. Coupled with the area’s excellent infrastructure and a proactive local council that supports the community, this area makes for an attractive investment. Where else can a savvy buyer secure luxury living with ocean views and all the advantages of city life combined with the charm of a laid-back holiday destination?

But where you live isn’t just about bricks and mortar, it’s about people too. Margate enjoys a stellar reputation of being very welcoming and family friendly. In the 2011 census, Margate recorded a population of 7,008 people with 52 per cent female and 48 per cent male with a median age of 42, which is five years above the national median age of 37. Seventy-two per cent of Margate residents were born in Australia.

Whoever you are, and wherever you come from, you'll fit right in to this friendly seaside town with its abundant coastal charms and appealing proximity to everything you’ll ever want and need for a lifestyle that many only dream of.

Welcome to your new life. It begins here.
