UNIT SITE MARRIES OLD, NEW
A new townhouse project has launched on the Sunshine Coast, which will see 32 new threebedroom residences in Buderim.
Ken Guy Buderim principal and marketing agent Danny Redman said the development would be built on the Buderim Motor Inn site, a popular spot to get married in the 1980s.
“It’s quite an iconic landmark that was for probably 30 or 35 years a motel site,” Mr Redman said. “It had accommodation and beautiful landscaped gardens and a restaurant, so if you wanted to get married, you could get married, have your reception there and if you enjoyed yourself too much you could accommodate yourself there on the day.”
The agency had the property on the market in 2015 and it attracted a lot of interest from interstate and local investors who wanted to buy it as a premium residential project.
“But the owner decided to retain the site and look for some suitable joint venture partners and that’s how this all evolved,” he said. “A very accomplished Brisbane architect, Paul Butterworth, became engaged and he answered the brief perfectly well and understood our market place and lifestyle and he created this design for Buderim Central.
“It’s not just Buderim Central to Buderim, it’s Buderim Central for the central Sunshine Coast, it’s quite an interesting geographical demographic.
“We’ve only just launched in the last couple of days and... the interest has been quite overwhelming, because it ticks those boxes, you can buy a three-bedroom premium level townhouse for under $600,000. We expect a lot of those buyers will be from interstate and they might be interim investors, but long-term residents.’’
Buderim Central is a new townhouse development of 32 units built with state-of-the-art materials on an iconic site.
