Con­struc­tion is un­der way at Sage Land­ing on the Sun­shine Coast, with 40 per cent sold since the launch of the project in May.

HMR Projects di­rec­tor Ken Reed said the re­sponse from the mar­ket had been pos­i­tive with a num­ber of other lots re­ceiv­ing keen in­ter­est from both lo­cal Bud­erim res­i­dents look­ing to downsize and in­ter­state buy­ers want­ing to move.

“As long-term Sun­shine Coast lo­cals and Bud­erim res­i­dents our­selves, we’ve made a con­scious ef­fort to de­sign a de­vel­op­ment that in­cor­po­rates the best of Bud­erim liv­ing, cap­i­tal­is­ing on the vil­lage life­style and the leafy sur­rounds,” Mr Reed said. “We had long been look­ing for a site to build a lim­ited num­ber of qual­ity homes within easy walk­ing dis­tance of the vil­lage and it’s great to see the sod turned and civil works com­menc­ing as Sage Land­ing comes to fruition.”

Ray White Bud­erim real es­tate agent Lew Pot­tinger said the com­mence­ment of con­struc­tion marked a sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone for both the de­vel­op­ment and the Bud­erim hous­ing mar­ket as a whole.

“Over the past few decades there has been a lim­ited num­ber of sub­di­vi­sions on top of Bud­erim and, of these, the ma­jor­ity have cen­tred on ex­pan­sive homes that re­quire a lot of up­keep in terms of lawns and other main­te­nance,” Mr Pot­tinger said. “While Sage Land­ing’s high-end homes are still spa­cious enough to ac­com­mo­date fam­i­lies or cou­ples, the de­vel­op­ment has been specif­i­cally de­signed to be low main­te­nance. This isn’t an of­fer­ing we see ev­ery day in Bud­erim and there is no com­par­a­tive prod­uct on the mar­ket.”

Mr Pot­tinger said just eight home and land of­fer­ings re­mained at Sage Land­ing.

“An­other big at­trac­tion for buy­ers so far has proved to be the pri­vacy the de­vel­op­ment af­fords,” Mr Pot­tinger said. “Sage Land­ing is very much its own pri­vate en­clave; how­ever, there are no body cor­po­rate costs and the project is close to cafes and re­tail out­lets.”

Sage Land­ing in Bud­erim has spa­cious, high-end, low main­te­nance homes, an easy walk to cafes and bou­tique re­tail.
