Golf just one of the at­trac­tions

The Courier-Mail - Home - - HOUSE&LAND -

BROOK­WA­TER is set to be­come the ul­ti­mate week­end es­cape for a cou­ple who re­cently pur­chased two ter­race homes in the golf res­i­den­tial com­mu­nity’s The Crest precinct.

Dr Ar­mando Da Silva and his wife, Clarice, pur­chased the properties for both in­vest­ment and life­style pur­poses.

‘‘We were ini­tially at­tracted to Brook­wa­ter for its beau­ti­ful green spa­ces, large blocks and re­laxed com­mu­nity feel,’’ Dr Da Silva said.

‘‘The Brook­wa­ter ter­race homes were the per­fect op­tion for us, with the two ad­join­ing properties al­low­ing us to use one as an in­vest­ment prop­erty and one as a week­end house.

‘‘They are beau­ti­ful, spa­cious homes and are just the right size to suit the two of us per­fectly.’’

Dr Da Silva, a pe­di­a­tri­cian, said he and his wife would con­tinue to be based in Toowoomba dur­ing the week un­til they were ready to re­tire.

‘‘We will ini­tially use one ter­race home as a week­end house so we can spend more time with our fam­ily,’’ Dr Da Silva said. ‘‘We even­tu­ally plan to live in Brook­wa­ter full time.

‘‘Our daugh­ters live in Greater Spring­field, so it will be great to be able to spend more time with them and our grand­chil­dren on week­ends.’’

Dr Da Silva said he ex­pected the life­style would be one of the best things about the move, with his new properties lo­cated close to Brook­wa­ter’s world-class fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing a Greg Nor­man-de­signed golf course.

‘‘While we don’t play golf, we are cer­tainly look­ing for­ward to tak­ing ad­van­tage of Brook­wa­ter’s world-class com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties,’’ he said.

Brook­wa­ter res­i­den­tial gen­eral man­ager Terry Ho­nan said the de­sire for hous­ing di­ver­sity, cou­pled with an ex­clu­sive golf life­style, was driv­ing de­mand for The Crest precinct.

‘‘The Crest has proven to be one of Brook­wa­ter’s most pop­u­lar re­leases, of­fer­ing a wide range of home and land op­tions to suit a va­ri­ety of life­styles and needs,’’ Mr Ho­nan said.

‘‘Set on one of Brook­wa­ter’s most el­e­vated ridge lines along Opos­sum Creek, it is one of Brook­wa­ter’s most peace­ful ar­eas, with some of the best views in Brook­wa­ter.

‘‘With ac­cess to high-qual­ity com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing the award­win­ning Brook­wa­ter Golf & Coun­try Club, it is no won­der more peo­ple are look­ing to in­vest in Brook­wa­ter.’’

Avail­able home­sites range in size from 401sq m to 1056sq m and lux­ury ter­race homes are priced from $490,000.

De­signer homes are avail­able from $635,000, with bush­land home­sites from $295,000.
