Buy new home at unit prices
SMITHFIELD Village Estate and Cairns Key Real Estate are excited to launch a range of new homes never before seen in Cairns.
With affordability being the greatest stumbling block to home ownership, Smithfield Village set about doing something to address this growing problem.
“Smithfield Village has been leading the way for development in the Far North for a number of years and so to make affordable living on the northern beaches a reality was a natural progression,” said Adam Gowlett, Satterley state manager.
“We have won the UDIA State awards for both the Best Residential Estate in 2009 and Best Environmentally Sustainable Development and we were Cairns’ first estate to have every home connected to optic fibre, which we’ve been installing since 2006.”
Special planning approval was sought to develop 12 homes on low-maintenance lots that use a rear laneway for access to their double garage. The new homes include sizeable three or four bedrooms, two bathrooms plus an outdoor alfresco area and are fully landscaped – it’s a complete turn-key package.
“We see customers all the time looking for brand new concepts in housing design that are innovative and affordable without sacrificing quality and functionality,” Adam said.
“Customers are looking for value for money and many don’t want the hassle of building or simply can’t afford to rent while they build.”
Yvonne Rowlands, principal of Cairns Key Real Estate says: “ These three and four-bedroom homes are designed for a maintenance-free lifestyle”.
“ They will definitely appeal to young couples, retirees and investors. As body corporate fees keep going up, these homes should also appeal to people living in units who want to stop paying rising fees. Being walking distance to JCU they could be ideal for parents looking for safe and secure homes for older children.”
New owners will have the comfort and peace of mind of owning a new freehold home with security and privacy for little more than a current price of an apartment and without the stairs. These homes all have private courtyards and no special permission is required for those who love small pets.
As with all Smithfield Village residents, new home owners will be connected to recycled water and optic fibre, with the first resident also receiving a $1500 Telstra Velocity rebate.
Smithfield Village has vast areas of parks and open space, kilometres of hike and bike paths and is only minutes from primary, secondary schools and university, an abundance of shopping, local library, swimming pool and boating facilities just to name a few.
Priced from $ 325,000, these new homes represent excellent value and all homes qualify for the government’s $10,000 Transfer Duty rebate. These exciting new homes will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 1.30p-3.30pm.
