Whit­sun­days en­tice buy­ers

The Courier-Mail - Home - - Land & New Estates -

ONLY a hand­ful of home sites re­main for sale in the cur­rent stage of the $750 mil­lion Whit­sun­day Shores coastal de­vel­op­ment in Bowen, North Queens­land.

De­vel­oper Aspen Whit­sun­day Shores has priced its last 18 lots in the Hay­man land precinct at an af­ford­able $147,000 while also of­fer­ing house and land pack­ages from an eco­nom­i­cal $393,000.

Aspen Liv­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive Chris Lewis said buyer in­ter­est in the Bowen re­gion had ig­nited fol­low­ing re­cent an­nounce­ments re­gard­ing ma­jor min­ing and in­fra­struc­ture projects in­clud­ing Clive Palmer’s $69 bil­lion coal ex­port con­tract and plans for a $1.25 mil­lion multi cargo fa­cil­ity at nearby Ab­bot Point.

Mr Lewis said savvy pur­chasers had been prompted to act quickly and take ad­van­tage of to­day’s prices ahead of an­tic­i­pated pop­u­la­tion, em­ploy­ment and prop­erty growth.

“Th­ese home sites rep­re­sent fan­tas­tic value, con­sid­er­ing they are po­si­tioned just a short walk from the coast­line, in a well es­tab­lished com­mu­nity,” he said.

“We have seen strong in­ter­est re­cently from lo­cal buy­ers looking to re-in­vest in the mar­ket.

“We have also had an in­crease in in­quiry from in­ter­state buy­ers who are ei­ther looking to in­vest or re-lo­cate to Bowen to po­si­tion them­selves for one of the thou­sands of new jobs in the pipe­line for the re­gion,” Mr Lewis said.

“I an­tic­i­pate our re­main­ing home sites won’t last long, con­sid­er­ing they cur­rently rep­re­sent the only op­por­tu­nity for pur­chasers to se­cure new prop­erty at Whit­sun­day Shores.”

The Hay­man land release pro­vides large, tra­di­tional home sites rang­ing from 693sq m to 1123sq m along with house and land pack­ages avail­able from award-winning builder GJ Gard­ner.

GJ Gard­ner New Homes and De­sign con­sul­tant Alan Dyne had the op­tion of se­lect­ing from a plethora of dif­fer­ent de­signs to suit in­di­vid­ual bud­gets and lifestyles.

“There are seven dif­fer­ent home styles to choose from, all with four bed­rooms, two bath­rooms and a dou­ble lock-up garage,” Mr Dyne said.

“All homes in­clude only the best fit­tings and fin­ishes, in­clud­ing Cae­sarS­tone bench­tops, top qual­ity kitchen ap­pli­ances, tiles and car­pet­ing through­out and se­cu­rity screen­ing.

“We have a house and land pack­age to suit every­one – from young cou­ples and re­tirees through to grow­ing fam­i­lies – and all homes are turn-key so, pur­chasers can move in and start en­joy­ing them straight away.”

GJ Gard­ner will soon com­mence work on a home in Whit­sun­day Shores’ new dis­play vil­lage fea­tur­ing de­signs cre­ated by Bet­ter Homes Queens­land and Dixon Homes.

In ad­di­tion, a range of new dis­play homes will be ready to show­case to prospec­tive pur­chasers dur­ing the sec­ond half of the year.

On com­ple­tion Whit­sun­day Shores will com­prise more than 1000 res­i­den­tial lots.
