BUY­ERS are flock­ing to Pim­pama’s golf and life­style com­mu­nity Hal­cyon Greens, with more than half of the homes in its lat­est stage snapped up on the day they were re­leased to the pub­lic.

Life­style de­vel­oper Hal­cyon launched its third stage late last year, se­cur­ing $9 mil­lion in sales on the launch day.

Hal­cyon joint-man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Doc­tor Be­van Geiss­mann said they brought the lat­est of­fer­ing for­ward to cater for grow­ing de­mand.

“We had a num­ber of po­ten­tial buy­ers in­ter­ested in this of­fer­ing, which is why we brought the launch of stage three for­ward, and de­mand is re­flected in the strong takeup,” Dr Geiss­mann said.

“We are find­ing the prop­erty mar­ket is strong de­spite all the talk of it slow­ing down, and Hal­cyon Greens is prov­ing that to us time and time again with our out­stand­ing fa­cil­i­ties and the Gains­bor­ough Greens Golf Club next door at­tract­ing buy­ers who are look­ing for a life­style change.”

Hal­cyon Greens is in Pim­pama’s Gains­bor­ough Greens, which is on a 34ha is­land par­cel sur­rounded by wet­lands and a golf course. It will have more than 500 homes on com­ple­tion.

Prop­er­ties in the com­mu­nity’s third re­lease are priced from $485,000 to $725,000.

Two and three-bed­room homes with open plan liv­ing and out­door en­ter­tain­ment ar­eas are fea­tured in the lat­est stage.

All of the homes are within walk­ing dis­tance to the re­cently launched first phase of leisure fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing the flood­lit bowl­ing green, eight pick­le­ball courts and ten­nis court.

Dr Geiss­mann said lo­cal buy­ers, par­tic­u­larly south-east Queens­land res­i­dents, had snapped up most of the homes sold in the third stage so far.

“We ex­pect to see the fi­nal homes in stage three move quickly, and as al­ways are ex­cited to wel­come new home­own­ers to our com­mu­nity,” he said.

Ray and Ann Ryan are among the south­east Queens­lan­ders who have bought in Hal­cyon Greens’ third stage.

“We wanted to down­size when it suited us, and we’re both still work­ing so by no means are we slow­ing down,” Mrs Ryan said.

“But we didn’t want to leave it too late and find our­selves iso­lated on our big block in Shailer Park.

“We’re most look­ing for­ward to liv­ing among like-minded peo­ple who are look­ing out for each other while we en­joy the amaz­ing fa­cil­i­ties on of­fer. Ray is very sporty and loves golf so he’ll be right at home with the golf club down the road, and he’s look­ing for­ward to get­ting into pick­le­ball.

“I’m a pool girl my­self, and we will also be spend­ing a lot of time on the bowl­ing green.”
