On the right track
The Surrounds, complete with the new Helensvale rail station, is just about ready to welcome its first very happy residents
NEW Helensvale community The Surrounds will welcome its first residents ahead of Christmas. Work is almost complete at the Helensvale rail station, which is at the entrance to the $500 million community, with passengers able to board the G Link at Helensvale from early 2018.
First home buyers Jaison Varghese and Reshma Johnson (pictured), who bought a 428sq m lot in stage one, are looking forward to reducing their carbon footprint, with one of their two cars now on the market.
“The Helensvale transport hub gives us access to light rail, heavy rail and buses, all within walking distance from our new home,” he said.
Located on the former Gold Coast Country Club site, The Surrounds community will cover more than 60ha. The finishing touches are being made to the homes in stage one and Mr Varghese said he and his wife were eager to settle into their double storey, four- bedroom home. The Surrounds will have about 620 residences.
Villawood Properties executive director Tony Johnson said The Surrounds was set to become one of the most well connected communities in the country, with the stage two light rail connection to Helensvale proving a key drawcard for buyers. BULLETIN.COM.AU REAL ESTATE SATURDAY NOVEMBER 25 2017
