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.
