One of South East Queensland’s only acreage display precincts, now showing at The Lanes.
New home designs are on show at one of South East Queensland’s only acreage display precincts at The Lanes community in New Beith.
Developer QM Properties says it is addressing demand from acreage buyers who want to see the finished product before they commit to a builder.
The Lanes features display homes from GJ Gardner, G&P Builders, Stroud Homes, Oracle Platinum Homes and Hallmark Homes.
G&P Builders manager Aaron Garbuio says acreage buyers are trending towards better use of outdoor living space, meaning choosing the right homesite is just as important as selecting a home design.
“About 80 per cent of buyers who visit us are looking to build a pool, shed, large outdoor entertainment space – or a combination of the three – on their land, so it’s important they have the right homesite to begin with,” he said.
“The Lanes provides a good canvas for us to work from, with all of the lots sized over 2,000sqm, predominantly flat, with good soil quality and all utilities including reticulated water, underground power and NBN built in.”
“Because the final lots in the estate are complete and ready to build on, we can literally walk the buyer across their homesite and plan out where everything will be, which gives purchasers comfort and confidence.”
“Most people choose acreage because they want space and privacy and, as a result, our most popular home-
-designs feature four bedrooms, a multi purpose room and study, so there’s plenty of room for the whole family.”
“Fire pits and fireplaces are on trend, as are feature gardens, and these can easily be added in to the design of a larger homesite.”
QM Properties General Sales Manager Damien Ross says The Lanes’ displays have been designed to suit the final 20 homesites in the estate which are priced from $289,500.
“Display homes are common in traditional estates with smaller homesites, but we recognise that acreage buyers have different lifestyle needs and wanted to showcase a collection of home designs to reflect this,” he said.
“The display precinct has been a source of inspiration for buyers, particularly those looking to make the switch from suburbia to a semi rural community.”
“The Lanes at New Beith has proven popular because it offers urban convenience, with the hub of Springfield, including the Orion Shopping Centre and University of Southern Queensland, just 15 minutes away.”
“It’s also within easy reach of the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Mount Tamborine, which is just 20 minutes away.”
“The location and relative affordability of The Lanes has attracted young professionals and families who want a more peaceful lifestyle, while still remaining close to employment centres.”
The Lanes’ display precinct is open seven days from 10am to 4pm.
