Na­ture at its best in lo­cal de­vel­op­ments

Whitsunday Times - - FEATURE -

ONE of Colony Build­ing Group's trade­marks is that its homes are in har­mony with na­ture and two of their most well known Whit­sun­day hous­ing de­vel­op­ments are fine ex­am­ples of that.

Whit­sun­day Acres is a pre­mium 'life­style' es­tate with larger-than-av­er­age lots back­ing onto Na­tional Park, in Can­non Val­ley.

At 1000m2 to 2900m2, the lots of­fer the kind of stan­dard of living only large blocks can pro­vide with room for a big, ex­ec­u­tive-style home, pool, ten­nis court, gen­er­ous gar­den and boat shed.

"The es­tate is set in an am­phithe­atre of moun­tains, with lots back­ing onto the Con­way Range and en­joy­ing stunning rain­for­est and moun­tain views - some blocks also have sea views," Mr Hill said.

The lat­est land re­lease at Whit­sun­day Acres fol­lows an ini­tial two stages eight years ago, where pres­ti­gious prop­er­ties have now been built in el­e­vated po­si­tions at the foot of the range.

The suc­cess of the ini­tial stages con­vinced Cliff that large lots were the way to go in Can­non Val­ley and he has since brought a fur­ther four stages to mar­ket, with stage one now sell­ing and buy­ers al­ready putting 'holds' on stage two.

Mount Whit­sun­day is a gated com­mu­nity over­look­ing Abell Point Ma­rina and Air­lie Beach.

Not only do the lots have mag­nif­i­cent views of the Coral Sea and is­lands but they also back onto nat­u­ral bush­land, mak­ing the most of the Whit­sun­days' nat­u­ral beauty and rain­for­est.

"The trees and bush­land on the es­tate have been left to cre­ate nat­u­ral buf­fers be­tween the blocks, with the rain­for­est act­ing as a screen be­tween homes," Mr Hill said, who loves to make the most of the Whit­sun­days nat­u­ral as­sets and is him­self a keen fish- er­man. "There are build­ing covenants, so the whole es­tate is in har­mony with the bush­land and rain­for­est, and the homes blend into the nat­u­ral sur­rounds."

Only three lots re­main out of the orig­i­nal 46 on the es­tate, which also boasts a ten­nis court, with a racket club soon to be built.

THE COLONY TEAM: Baden Tuohy, Meg McRae, Clif­ford Hill, Freya Hill and Ryce Westre­icher.
