Construction of new display village at Casuarina to begin
CONSTRUCTION of the first homes at a new display village at Miramar in Casuarina are expected to begin within weeks.
More than 120 of 194 total homesites were sold at the village following a "bumper" Christmas and New Year sales period, Villawood development manager Michael Williams said.
The display village will feature designs from four of the region's top builders - GJ Gardner, Perry Homes, Seabreeze Homes and Anstey Homes.
Mr Williams said the homes were all large, four bedroom single storey designs which suited the beachside location with the village expected to sellout by mid-year.
"Because Miramar has larger homesites than what you would typically find on the Tweed or Gold Coast, we have chosen to display generously-sized open plan, single storey homes, because that is what the market is looking for right now," he said.
"The homes are not only well suited to Miramar's location and buyers - who have mostly been growing families and retirees - but they can also be tailored to individual site orientation, to maximise cross-ventilation and natural lighting, so they are comfortable to live in year round.
"With Miramar situated just a short walk to the beach, parks and shops, there is an emphasis on contemporary coastal architecture with a focus on indoor/outdoor living and entertainment areas, so people can really make the most of the unique lifestyle and climate here.
"Following a very active Christmas and New Year period, it's clear that we have very little stock remaining and I expect that as people see the first builder and resident homes commence construction, there will be a rush to secure the remaining lots."
Mr Williams said the registration of the first stage of land is expected to take place this month , with the first homes expected to be completed around May.
The first residents are expected on site by mid year.
Mr Williams said by that time work should have commenced on a 6,000sqm community park, and the final stages of land, with a view to the whole development being finished by the end of this year.
Lots start from $299,900 and ranging from 451sqm to 1004sqm.
Home and land packages start from $550,000.
