ARE THESE SOUTHEAST QUEENSLAND’S CHEAPEST HOUSE AND LAND PACKAGES?
Could this be southeast Queensland’s cheapest new house and land package?
Flagstone developers Peet Limited and MTAA Super have worked with five builders to put together an early Christmas present for first home buyers — house and land packages from $298,000.
The packages have been released ahead of the First Home Owners Grant deadline on December 31, when the grant was scheduled to reduce from $20,000 to $15,000. However, the grant is now expected to be extended for another six months after Labor was re-elected for a second term.
There are currently three packages on offer for less than $300,000
The packages come as the developer releases its first 250sq m lots at Flagstone – the $6.7 billion satellite city development taking shape between Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
Peet CEO and managing director Brendan Gore said the smaller lots were new to Flagstone’s second neighbourhood, which has just been released.
“Each neighbourhood in Flagstone has a distinctive blend of housing product and the new Gateway neighbourhood has been carefully planned to give first homebuyers an even bigger choice,” he said.
“There will be a select number of compact lots integrated with bigger homesites up to 720sq m and located close to parks and green space.
“This gives homeowners the benefits of smaller, more affordable blocks of land without compromising Flagstone’s distinctive outdoor lifestyle and airy streetscapes.”
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom and single-garage designs come with floor coverings, light fittings and free front garden landscaping on a 250sq m lot.
The new Gateway release is close to the future Flagstone city centre — a 126-hectare CBD with provision for a future hospital, tertiary campus and train station.
It is also walking distance to a massive $12 million regional park now being developed around the city centre.
Over the next four years, the 10-hectare Flagstone Central park will become an exciting recreation zone, with facilities being progressively built as the community grows.
A water play dog park opened earlier this year and a designer skate plaza is being completed. The skate plaza will open today, coinciding with the Flagstone Christmas Wonderland, a free family extravaganza with skating elves, Santa DJ, giant games, food vans and market stalls starting from 4pm.
Flagstone, one of the biggest new satellite cities being built in Australia, was made a suburb in its own right, with the area expected to hold 12,000 homes within the Peet development alone once completed. It is the central hub of the Greater Flagstone region, a Priority Development Area, and is expected to eventually be home to 120,000 people, comparable to Toowoomba or Cairns.
The ‘Nevada 140’ by Burbank Homes is one of three house and land packages available for less than $300,000 at Flagstone.
