RUSH FOR BAYSIDE HOMES
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.
