The popularity of low-maintenance living is continuing to surge as buyers snap up home sites in The Haven, the newest residential village in Stockland’s thriving Augustine Heights community.
The affordable, low-maintenance lots at The Haven have struck a chord with a range of customers from first home buyers to young families and singles, with more than three-quarters of the 40 blocks in the village now.
David Laner, Acting Queensland General Manager for Residential Communities at Stockland, said the response to The Haven had been outstanding, with the village offering a great opportunity for those looking to get a foot on the property ladder in a highly liveable, sustainable community well connected to Ipswich, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
“The Haven is perfectly positioned within the abundant green surrounds of Augustine Heights, which has been carefully planned to ensure residents have everything they need at their doorstep including shops, schools, medical facilities and public transport,’’ Mr Laner said.
“The village has proven itself to be an important addition to Augustine Heights by enhancing the community’s diversity of land options, and we are looking forward to the first residents moving in later this year.’’
First home buyer Daniel Ramirez, who is currently finalising the design of his brand new, four-bedroom home, is among those hoping to move into Augustine Heights this year.
“I am looking forward to living at Augustine Heights. It is only 10 minutes from work, which makes travel easy, and the 400 square metre allotment is more than enough for me and my house design,’’ Mr Ramirez said.
Mr Ramirez, who presently lives at Redbank Plains, said the growth in the surrounding Greater Springfield corridor attracted him to Augustine Heights.
“I didn’t have a check list of things I wanted in a community – I just wanted to live in a nice area for an appropriate cost but the proximity to public transport, parkland and sports grounds also definitely helped,’’ Mr Ramirez said.
Augustine Heights, which will eventually comprise more than 1,000 homes on a 183-hectare site, incorporates an abundance of recreational space as well as kilometres of walking and cycling paths.
Mr Laner said that Stockland was committed to helping people take their very first steps on the property ladder, with first home buyers accounting for about half of its customers nationally. Around 87 per cent of all residential customers are owner-occupiers.
With lots at The Haven designed to offer a convenient lifestyle at an affordable price, buyers are currently able to purchase quality house and land packages from as little as $350,000, which is $165,000 below the broader suburb’s median house price of $515,000.*
Augustine Heights includes two schools, Augusta State School and St Augustine’s College, with childcare, Springfield Central Railway Station and shopping centres just minutes away.
