LIVING A LAKESIDE DREAM
A handful of “premium” land sites at Stockland’s $590 million Newport community has been released to the market.
Stockland acting Queensland general manager for residential, David Laner, said eight sites at the Quay Precinct at Newport came as the construction of the first lakeside home started. “Our latest release of eight premium home sites within the Quay Precinct has generated high interest among home buyers, with four of the lots sold,” Mr Laner said.
“These premium lots are perfectly positioned on or near the water’s edge and cater to home buyers seeking to build their dream home in an exclusive neighbourhood that offers an exceptional lifestyle.
“The Quay precinct offers a stunning streetscape for residents and all homes are required to be built to the highest standards, with a minimum of 250sq m of floor space. The precinct will include some of the largest lots ever to be offered at Newport.”
He said the 22ha lake, now well over halfway through construction, would be the centrepiece of the Newport community, providing residents with an idyllic outlook and an abundance of water-based recreational opportunities right on the doorstep including kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding.
Mr Laner said the latest release was launched in response to demand, and within walking distance of the future town centre.
Mathew and Tanya Davey are the first buyers to start construction on a lakeside block at Quay at Newport. Mr Davey said they hoped to be in their five-bedroom home, which they had designed with an indoor-outdoor living aspect to take full advantage of the water views over the lake, by December.
