THE $180 mil­lion Ely­sium Noosa pro­ject has sold out of its 189 homesites.

AVJen­nings ac­quired the site in late 2010, and Queens­land gen­eral man­ager Rod Chad­wick said the over­all scarcity of land in Noosa drove buyer de­mand over the past 12 months.

“Noosa Na­tional Park spans 40km so the ma­jor­ity of the east­ern cor­ri­dor of Lake Weyba is now land­locked, mean­ing there is very limited op­por­tu­nity for fu­ture de­vel­op­ment in the area, so it re­ally was a case of buy now or miss out,” he said.

Ge­off and Anne Brinkman have moved into Ely­sium, with Mr Brinkman tak­ing up the role of sec­re­tary of the body cor­po­rate.

Mr Brinkman said with the com­mu­nity’s $3 mil­lion re­cre­ation cen­tre, res­i­dents did not need to leave their neigh­bour­hood for en­ter­tain­ment, with fa­cil­i­ties such as pools, cater­ers’ kitchen and gym avail­able.

He said there was a “strong sense of com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ing” at Ely­sium with the re­cre­ation cen­tre help­ing to make that hap­pen.

“My fam­ily are reg­u­lar users of the fa­cil­i­ties, par­tic­u­larly the gym­na­sium and the ten­nis courts,” he said.

COM­MU­NITY SPIRIT: Anne and Ge­off Brinkman are en en­joy­ing the re­cre­ation ce cen­tre’s fa­cil­i­ties at AV AVJen­nings’ Ely­sium, in Noosa, where Ge­off is sec­re­tary of w th the body cor­po­rate.
