Be­tween city and the bay

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

MIR­VAC’S Moss­vale on Manly de­vel­op­ment is lead­ing the re­nais­sance of Bris­bane bay­side sub­urb Wak­er­ley.

It con­tin­ues to at­tract a stream of life­style pur­chasers who’ve al­ready snapped up 10 of the 13 homes in the es­tate’s lat­est release, launched in Jan­uary.

First launched in 2002 and fea­tur­ing more than nine hectares of green park­lands and tran­quil wa­ter­ways, the de­vel­op­ment is only 14 kilo­me­tres from Bris­bane’s CBD and within min­utes of More­ton Bay.

More than 370 homes have now been con­structed with 130 sites await­ing de­vel­op­ment.

Cur­rent homes are avail­able from be­tween $627,500 and $740,000 and come with Mir­vac’s life­style pack­age of in­clu­sions.

Mir­vac Queens­land chief ex­ec­u­tive De­vel­op­ment, Matthew Wal­lace, said Moss­vale on Manly had been a Bris­bane prop­erty in­dus­try suc­cess story.

“Not too long ago Wak­er­ley was a ru­ral area and largely undis­cov­ered by Bris­bane res­i­dents, but we iden­ti­fied that the bay­side corridor be­tween the city and More­ton Bay pro­vided some unique life­style at­tributes that we were con­fi­dent buy­ers would warm to,” Mr Wal­lace said.

“We recog­nised that trans­porta­tion to the city was im­prov­ing by road rail, the dis­tance to the CBD was not far and the at­trac­tion of More­ton Bay and all it of­fers was right on the doorstep.”

Mir­vac had con­sid­er­able suc­cess with its first project in the corridor, Park Hill Vil­lage and that has con­tin­ued with Moss­vale on Manly.

Mr Wal­lace said the de­vel­op­ment ap­pealed to a wide cross sec­tion of pur­chasers in­clud­ing fam­i­lies, re­tirees, empty nesters and pro­fes­sion­als.

He said many peo­ple re­lo­cat­ing to the de­vel­op­ment were from the es­tab­lished east­ern sub­urbs, of­ten sell­ing semi-ren­o­vated, older homes with high main­te­nance is­sues and swap­ping them for mod­ern, ar­chi­tect de­signed, qual­ity built homes with lit­tle main­te­nance in a prime lo­ca­tion.

Mir­vac has de­vel­oped a num­ber of dif­fer­ent hous­ing al­ter­na­tives at Moss­vale on Manly in­clud­ing the Mir­vac Se­ries homes, in­spired by the cel­e­brated Case Study Homes de­signed in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia in the mid-1940s and also the highly suc­cess­ful Ur­ban Se­ries Homes renowned for their ef­fi­cient space plan­ning and over­all live­abil­ity.

The com­pany’s team of ar­chi­tects and in­te­rior de­sign­ers pro­vide a va­ri­ety of schemes al­low­ing own­ers to cus­tomise in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal fin­ishes and de­sign el­e­ments, fix­tures and fit­tings to com­plete their home in style and com­fort.

In ad­di­tion to a range of avail­able abodes near­ing com­ple­tion, pur­chasers can choose to cre­ate their own house and land pack­age by se­lect­ing the block of their choice and then pick­ing a dwelling type that best suits their needs from a num­ber of de­signs avail­able.
