A new luxury development named Sabine (a name from the ancient people of central Italy) is now selling 12 luxury townhouses on South Lake Avenue convenient to and near great shops (like Pavilions, Peet’s Coffee, Noahs Bagels, Macy’s, etc.) geared toward buyers that may desire to live within walking distance to these amenities. Sabine’s design isn’t Italian, but French chateau style and its 12 luxury townhouses start from $1.25 million.
As I walked through the homes during my preview, it was apparent that the developer, Legendary Development, put much effort into the higher quality materials that were chosen to appeal to more discriminating buyers. Kitchens had Viking appliances, ogee-edged counter tops, under mount sinks, etc. and bathrooms with Saint Thomas Creations toilets. Elevators and private rooftop terraces were available in the larger units toward the back of the complex. One of the units I previewed even had a “basement” that was converted to a movie screening room (what a great way to entertain guests).
Overall, the general vibe I got was that this development would have a good chance appealing to the kind of affluent buyers that are downsizing and/or looking for a more urban lifestyle.
These pictures are from unit #12 (which is similar to unit #1) and gives you a good idea of the feel of Sabine.
