Buyers eager to embrace low-maintenance waterside living on the Gold Coast have shown a keen interest in architecturally designed boutique terrace homes in Stockland’s Foreshore community.
The stylish three and four-bedroom townhomes close to the Coomera river and amid beautiful wetlands are proving a popular option for first-home buyers, downsizers and investors alike, amid growing demand for well-connected homes with minimal upkeep.
Stockland’s 2020 property survey showed more than 60 per cent of Australians would happily forgo a traditional large backyard for a smaller home with less outdoor space if it meant they were close to neighbours, community parks and green spaces.
Ryan McKnight, Development Manager at Stockland, said the townhomes offered a new benchmark for livability in one of Australia’s most sought-after coastal regions.
“We’ve seen a huge rise in popularity for our townhomes, largely driven by the demand for well-located, low-maintenance homes within high-quality communities,” Mr McKnight said.
Garth Hollindale of architectural firm Hollindale Mainwaring said the townhomes had been designed with sustainability principles as a key consideration.
“The townhomes are unique and have been carefully designed to allow natural light and coastal breezes to come through thus reducing their reliance on costly air conditioning and artificial light sources,” Mr Hollindale said.
The townhomes, which have a six-star Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) rating, also make provisions for solar panels and battery power storage, as well as heat-reflective roofs, tinted glazing and window hood awnings to help keep the house cool.
Starting at just $435,000, the NBN-ready townhomes incorporate premium finishes, including high ceilings, timber flooring, entertainer style kitchen with stone benchtops and Bosch appliances.
“With 40 per cent already sold, the turnkey townhomes are a fantastic option for a wide range of residents, wrapped up in a conveniently located, idyllic setting,” Ms Barton said.
Residents Jarred and Steph recently purchased in Foreshore, impressed with the community's location and amenities.
“As soon as we arrived at Foreshore we were both really impressed with the community feel as a whole,” they said.
“We love the location and the amenities in the area, particularly Westfield Coomera, and were so impressed with the views looking out over wetlands and park.”
Stockland’s Foreshore borders the Coomera River and Oxley Creek which provides two and a half kilometres of river frontage and more than 51 hectares of conservation areas and open space for nature lovers to enjoy.
The established community in the Gold Coast’s northern corridor offers quick access to a wide range of services including its own shopping and dining precinct, as well as two childcare centres, state school and Pimpama Secondary College.
The well-connected community is located just two kilometres from the $470 million Westfield Coomera and three kilometres from Coomera train station.
