High praise for Tweed project

A $50 million eco-residential project is promising to set the benchmark for sustainable living on the Tweed.

Mebbin Springs developer Patrick Brodie said the gated estate that will include a helicopter pad, tennis courts, swimming pool walking tracks, practice golf green and driving range, communal vegetable gardens, nursery and possible vineyards, will be self self-sufficient. Developers claim Mebbin Springs will have more than ample water supplies for 99 out of 100 years.

“Mebbin Springs is the perfect synergy between smart housing, sustainable design, solar energy, a sense of community and private acreage living, next to a heritage listed national park,” Mr Brodie said.

“Sustainability is gaining a foothold, not losing one. More people are turning to green living everyday, looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint while not compromising on their lifestyle requirements.

“Mebbin Springs is the perfect merging of eco living.”

The development, to be established alongside Mebbin National Park just south of Tyalgum, has been awarded six out of six for criteria of their EnviroDevelopment Program through the Urban Development Institute of Australia.

The first stage of the development has been officially released and will comprise 22 freehold blocks.

Property Marketing sales consultant Lee Martin said he expected plenty of interest with blocks priced from $385,000.

“We don't expect the first stage to be on the market for long,” Mr Martin said.

“There is no other sustainable development like this where you can enjoy so much space yet have this maintained for you by on-site resident staff.”
