The Weekend Post - Real Estate - - HOUSES -

PEACE, tran­quil­lity, na­ture and the beach: that’s what the de­vel­op­ers of Ar­genta say sums up the Palm Cove de­vel­op­ment.

Sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager Spiri Buha­giar said Argentea was sur­rounded by na­ture, trees, but­ter­flflies, birds and frogs.

“Imag­ine not hav­ing to use your car to drive to the shops or the beach, imag­ine cool breezes rustling through the trees.

“Imag­ine 3km of bi­cy­cle path­ways, a play­ground for the kids or grand­kids, en­joy­ing a glass of cham­pagne over­look­ing the Coral Sea, restau­rants, shops and more.’’

Ms Buha­giar said Argentea had been de­signed for those want­ing a bet­ter lifestyle.

“We be­lieve that where you live in­flflu­ences how you live and we pro­vide that lifestyle choice,’’ she said.

“Only a lim­ited num­ber of al­lot­ment and houses re­main for sale.’’

Ms Buha­giar said Argentea was a unique de­vel­op­ment with the fo­cus on “easy”.

“Easy ac­cess via path­ways to all fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing the beach, shop­ping, park­land and play­grounds.’’

En­com­pass­ing 60ha with De­laney’s Creek me­an­der­ing through it, the es­tate has re­tained the nat­u­ral con­tours of the land as mother na­ture in­tended.

A third of the es­tate is cov­ered by wooded for­est, a back­drop of na­ture with views to­wards Ma­cal­is­ter Range.

With 20ha of for­est re­serve con­tain­ing a vast ar­ray of flflora and fauna, Thakral has pub­lished a fi­field guide with Dr Martin Co­hen. The pub­li­ca­tion iden­ti­fi­fies more than 100 plants and an­i­mals in the Argentea es­tate.

“All homes on the es­tate are en­cour­aged to re­tain plants in har­mony with their en­vi­ron­ment,’’ Ms Buha­giar said.

“Build­ing guide­lines form part of the con­tract of sale en­sur­ing that all homes on the es­tate are built with the en­vi­ron­ment in mind,’’ he said.

The de­vel­op­ment is 20 min­utes north of Cairns In­ter­na­tional Air­port. Just take the fi­first turn right past Cairns Trop­i­cal Zoo. For more in­for­ma­tion visit the Argentea web­site www.argentea.com.au or phone 1300 723 187.
