Es­tate has wide ap­peal for buy­ers

Work starts on driv­ing range

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY BUSINESS -

ONLY 34 blocks re­main for sale in the first stage of Re­gatta Wa­ters on the edge of Cannonvale.

This is North Queens­land’s new­est life­style com­mu­nity and will in­clude a tav­ern, bar, golf pro shop, restau­rant and café, form­ing a life­style hub for res­i­dents and vis­i­tors.

The com­mu­nity is ex­pected to be de­vel­oped over the next 10 to 15 years and boast a vil­lage precinct an­chored by golf, shop­ping, re­cre­ation and re­lax­ation.

Project mar­ket­ing agent Steve Marks of Ray White Whit­sun­day said the re­sponse to the de­vel­op­ment had far ex­ceeded their ex­pec­ta­tions.

He said close to 30 per cent of the blocks in the project’s first stage had al­ready been snapped up to the tune of more than $3 mil­lion.

“With 15 parcels al­ready ac­counted for, just 34 sites re­main in stage one at Re­gatta Wa­ters Whit­sun­day’s which is be­ing de­vel­oped on a 283.5ha green­field site at Cannonvale by Lat­i­tude De­vel­op­ment Group (LDG),” he said.

“We’ve had quite a few lo­cal buy­ers who are up­grad­ing their ex­ist­ing home, as well as re­sources in­dus­try work­ers who have been liv­ing in the area but have, un­til now, held off pur­chas­ing,” he said.

Mr Marks con­firmed work had started this week on the golf driv­ing range af­ter six weeks of rain de­lays.

It is now ex­pected to be open in early May.

The es­tate’s ex­ten­sive mas­ter­plan also has pro­vi­sions for a recre­ational hub with gym­na­sium, Olympic-size heated lap pool, ten­nis courts, re­sort pool, saunas, spas and bar­beque area.

The 2500-lot com­mu­nity will em­brace the out­doors with abun­dant green space and in­di­vid­ual leisure ar­eas, walk­ing paths, creeks and wa­ter­ways as well as a pro­fes­sion­ally-de­signed golf course as its cen­tre­piece.”

“Buy­ers are recog­nis­ing their pur­chase means not only a new home, but an in­vest­ment in bet­ter­ing their life­style as a whole,” he said.

LDG di­rec­tor of res­i­den­tial sales Chris Thomp­son said that in putting to­gether the mas­ter­plan for Re­gatta Wa­ters Whit­sun­days, the de­vel­oper had care­fully con­sid­ered what would ap­peal to a broad mar­ket.

“In do­ing so we have cre­ated a com­mu­nity that will cap­i­talise on its idyl­lic lo­ca­tion and pay homage to the Whit­sun­days way of life,” he said.

“We’ve fo­cused our ef­forts on cre­at­ing a truly mas­ter­planned com­mu­nity with sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment into a vil­lage cen­tre that will see Re­gatta Wa­ters Whit­sun­days be­come not just a hous­ing es­tate, but a life­style des­ti­na­tion.”

Re­main­ing blocks in the first stage at Re­gatta Wa­ters Whit­sun­days range in size from 613sqm to 1010sqm and are priced from $170,000.
