PARKS are proving a big perk for home buy­ers at He­lensvale’s lat­est com­mu­nity, The Sur­rounds.

The $500-mil­lion com­mu­nity at the for­mer Gold Coast Coun­try Club will of­fer its 620 res­i­dences 22ha of park­land.

Villa­wood Prop­er­ties ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Tony John­son said each house would be a hop, skip and jump to walk­ing paths, parks, and a dog park.

“The lo­ca­tion of each block is ideal for those who love na­ture and an­i­mals,” Mr John­son said.

“With walk­ing paths, a na­ture play chil­dren’s park, nat­u­ral park­lands and the only off-leash dog park in the area lit­er­ally on their doorstep. The Sur­rounds is a mod­ern, walk­a­ble com­mu­nity where ev­ery home is less than 200m from open space.

“Across the creek is the pro­tected Coom­babah Lake Con­ser­va­tion Area, which is home to 27 species of an­i­mals, in­clud­ing the koala, pow­er­ful owl and mi­grat­ing birds.”

“The pres­ti­gious home sites will also be a short walk to the soon-to-be con­structed leisure cen­tre and cen­tral park.”

The land re­lease fol­lows a string of sales at The Sur­rounds, which has re­sulted in land re­leases be­ing fast-tracked to bring them to mar­ket. Home sites at Stage 1F North­point are cur­rently sell­ing and are priced from $409,900 to $439,900.

Mr John­son said buy­ers ap­pre­ci­ated the num­ber of life­style ameni­ties.

“Prox­im­ity to green space is so im­por­tant with peo­ple’s life­styles be­ing so busy th­ese days, which is why 22 ha of park­land and open space is cen­tral to the de­sign,” he said.

“The Sur­rounds offers a place to con­nect, un­wind, ex­er­cise or re­lax from ev­ery­day life.”
