More than 60 per cent of the Hori­zon es­tate at Thorn­lands has now sold, with the new com­mu­nity start­ing to take shape.

Fifty-one home­sites will make up the Ur­bane Homes com­mu­nity, which is 60m above sea level, lo­cated within a koala cor­ri­dor and just 30 min­utes from the Bris­bane CBD.

The site is also within easy reach of Cleve­land and Vic­to­ria Point, the Red­lands Hos­pi­tal, a num­ber of shop­ping cen­tres, Raby Bay ma­rina, and Sir­romet Win­ery.

First home­buy­ers Waldo and Candice Eastes, and their young fam­ily, are among those who have bought into the es­tate, which is mar­keted as the Bay­side’s “best value” com­mu­nity.

“We re­ally loved the idea of liv­ing in such an el­e­vated area while also be­ing sur­rounded by so much green space,” Mr Eastes said.

House and land pack­ages at Hori­zon start from $507,345.

Mean­while, a young cou­ple liv­ing with their par­ents at Al­bany Creek were the win­ners of the Ur­bane Homes/TRUECORE Steel $20,000 first home­buy­ers’ com­pe­ti­tion.

Emily, who is on ma­ter­nity leave, and Jar­ryd Chap­man, an ap­pren­tice plum­ber, said the win was “com­pletely life-chang­ing”.

The boost comes af­ter the Queens­land First Home Own­ers’ Grant dropped from $20,000 to $15,000 on July 1.

One of the Ur­bane Homes de­signs at the Hori­zon es­tate in Thorn­lands.
