The developers of Indigo Bay, one of a string of building projects currently taking place in Grand Harbour, allowed a sneak peek into their progress last weekend, with David Nelson, President of the developers, Charlton Group, taking guests on a tour of these ocean-front properties.
Twenty-nine apartments in total will be built, with 17 going up in the first phase. Phase one is about three months away from completion, Mr Nelson confirmed, with one building having been dry-walled and about to have wood floors and the tiling installed shortly. Sizes vary, with three main configurations including a larger, 20-foot wide unit that is approximately 2,700 square feet and benefits from an expansive 400 square foot rooftop patio. They alternate with a smaller 18-foot unit that is 2,166 square foot which does not come with a rooftop patio. As far as availability is concerned, Mr Nelson said that they had a few units left.
Each unit is either three bedrooms or three bedrooms plus a den and comes complete with Jack and Jill bathrooms with designer tubs and built-in showers. The Master suite is large enough to fit a king size bed and enjoys views over the South Sound.
“In most places with an apartment style unit you have a living room with the view and the bedroom looks at the parking lot. Not here,” Mrs Nelson said. Instead, owners will wake to expansive ocean views.
“It’s a great spot to watch the sun go down,” he confirmed. “We’re building livable homes as opposed to just an investment.”
Outside, units enjoy solar paneling that will generate 9.9KW of energy and those with roof top patios will come complete with outdoor kitchens that are comprised of a BBQ, fridge and sink, made from the same wood as the dock that sits out from the coast line available exclusively for the enjoyment of owners. A hot tub with the skirt made from the same wood will complete the amenities on the sundeck.
While all amenities, fixtures and fittings are at a luxury level, one of the most exciting aspects of Indigo Bay units is the fact that all of the villas come with a Tesla power wall and two batteries as well as an EV car charging station in their individual parking spot. Electric cars made so much sense on a small island, Mr Nelson stated.
“We are still the only development on the island where every unit is wired with an outlet for electric cars,” he confirmed.
