Mebbin springs comes to life

THE first homes in $50 million eco-residential project Mebbin Springs will be completed next month.

Titles for the Mebbin Springs development, a purpose-built eco-community, have also been released.

Developer Patrick Brodie said people are always looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint.

“Mebbin Springs sets a new benchmark for sustainable living on the Tweed, with each buyer owning a share of the remaining 300 acres of common ground.

“Facilities include a helicopter pad, community clubhouse, tennis courts, swimming pool, walking tracks, practice golf green and driving range, communal vegetable gardens, nursery and possible vineyards,” Mr Brodie said.

“It's not 1970, it's almost 2010, and people are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint while not compromising their lifestyles.

“Mebbin Springs is the perfect merging of eco-living within a quality acreage community.”

The first stage of Mebbin Springs comprises 22 freehold blocks all more than an acre in size.

Land prices start at $385,000 and only 66 blocks will be released.

“This development 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.

Mr Brodie said there is also a misconception that eco-sustainable projects attract a certain style of alternate resident.

“The reality is that the so-called hippy generation has morphed into a new era of enviro-conscious professionals looking to escape the city and build their ideal getaway in the country,” he said.

Property sales consultant Lee Martin said the project is a must-inspect for buyers opting for a cleaner life- style.

“When people visit Mebbin Springs for the first time they are overwhelmed by the picturesque serenity and panoramic views across the mountains and hinterland,” Mr Martin said.

“This project sets the benchmark for eco living in this part of the world. Rarely does acreage of this quality, maintained by on-site resident staff, come onto the market.

“Mebbin Springs will be self-sufficient with on-site staff also responsible for delivering mail to residents and the collection of rubbish.”

Mebbin Springs is located 25 minutes west of Murwillumbah.
