Af­ter more than 40 years liv­ing in their Padding­ton home, Au­drey and Bill Wright (pic­tured above right) have made the brave de­ci­sion to buy off the plan and move into a new apart­ment build­ing.

Mrs Wright said be­fore Christ­mas last year they de­cided to pur­chase into one of Toowong’s new­est com­mu­ni­ties Banc at 527 Coronation Drive, Toowong.

“The po­si­tion was very ex­cit­ing with river views and close to all the ameni­ties,” she said.

“Plus the fact that it’s a very beau­ti­ful look­ing build­ing ar­chi­tec­turally, I feel it’s quite dif­fer­ent to many oth­ers.”

Mrs Wright said they opted for “sky home’’ and pur­chased the three-bed­room apart­ment which will come with two bath­rooms, a pow­der room, liv­ing zones and laun­dry.

“It’s got ev­ery­thing you need, and lots and lots of stor­age space,’’ she said.

“They’ve cus­tomised it (the fit­tings and fix­tures) to our needs, which is won­der­ful.”

When asked if she was ner­vous about mak­ing a new move, Mrs Wright said it was time to move on.

“We’re both very ex­cited about it ac­tu­ally be­cause our fam­ily are all around the place and the house is just a lit­tle bit too big now,” she said. “It is sad to be leav­ing some of the peo­ple, they’re very nice peo­ple... but we’re ac­tu­ally very ex­cited. That might sound a bit strange, but you move on.”

Ev­ery apart­ment in Banc has a river view and the lux­ury of an in­di­vid­ual wine fridge in the wine cel­lar. The com­plex has a heated pool, bar­be­cue and recre­ation ar­eas.

Banc on Coronation Drive, Toowong, is a lux­ury de­vel­op­ment with river views and is close to all ameni­ties.
