It comprises 33 luxury one and two-bedroom apartments – six being penthouses – all with uninterrupted sea views and private parking. Each apartment is also only steps away from an award-winning sandy beach.
Demand for these beachfront luxury apartments is at an all-time high, with many eager to adopt the luxury coastal living and café culture lifestyle in the heart of Thanet.
A Blueberry Homes spokesperson said: “We have been overwhelmed by the interest we’ve had in this development.
“Phases One, Two, and Three all sold off-plan with only one apartment now left in Three, the ‘Water’s Edge’ while ‘Sea View’ apartments in Phase One have been completed and occupied, and new residents are expected to move into the Phase Two ‘The Horizon’ apartments soon.
“We launched Phase Four this week and have sold seven apartments already, and received many more enquiries for the last of our luxury apartments on this iconic development.”
As well as 106 luxury apartments, the Royal Sands scheme also includes a 60-bed hotel, leisure facilities, restaurants, and shops. These additions are planned for 2023 and 2024 and will deliver a further boost to the economy and prestige of Ramsgate and its Royal Harbour.
A Property Market Index.com national report in 2021 highlighted rising demand from Londoners wanting a home by the sea, enhanced by the ‘work from home’ trend sparked by COVID and its aftermath and a realisation that homebuyers could find more space at an affordable cost, while exchanging urban life for a cleaner and healthier one by the sea.
And Ramsgate was ranked as the most desirable out of 20 seaside towns for relocation from London, in the latest Property Market Index Rating, with Thanet coastal neighbours Broadstairs and Margate coming second and third respectively.
House prices in Ramsgate have surged 92% over the past ten years, according to a Halifax Seaside Town Report on 191 UK coastal locations, which also placed Margate’s staggering 98% rise as the highest.
In addition, Met Office data last year revealed that Thanet is the UK's number one coastal destination for sunshine, experiencing the most hours of sunlight per year - averaging 724 hours.
Blueberry Homes has another prestigious project set to begin soon called Gallery Walk, consisting of new luxury apartments located in Margate's burgeoning art district, backing onto the art school, TKE Studios, that Tracey Emin is establishing in her adopted hometown.
Gallery Walk-Margate will only be a short walk from the vibrant Old Town of Margate, Turner Contemporary art gallery, revitalised Dreamland vintage theme park, and Margate Main Sands beach.
