The master planned community of Pelican Waters has become a major showcase for diversity of builders’ product in South East Queensland as the demand for ready-built homes in the award-winning estate continues.
Builders are responding enthusiastically to Pelican Waters’ newest precinct, Waterside, where construction activity is at record levels resulting in a wide range of new homes ready for sale, or being released to the market in coming months.
General Manager of Development for Pelican Waters, Hamish Pressland, said of the approximate 200 home sites sold in 2015, 60% had already been built on.
“Presently there are 10 brand new homes for sale and we anticipate a further 65 to come on line within the next 12 months,’’ he said.
“More and more people are coming to Pelican Waters for turn-key product and currently the large variety available suits all tastes. Not only are our enquiry levels continuing to rise, but increasingly so too is the interest in new homes. More recently, about 30% of enquiry is for newly-built homes,’’ Mr Pressland said.
Approximately 20 builders are active in the Waterside precinct, producing a wide selection of housing types from compact three-bedroom homes on 300sqm lots up to expansive four and five –bedroom large family homes.
“The majority of builders are local Sunshine Coast companies that have realised the competitive advantage of doing business in Pelican Waters offers. Some of the builders are located in the Pelican Waters display village, others build only 10-15 homes a year whilst others are large volume builders,’’ Mr Pressland said.
“These builders are not just buying a lot for a display home, they are investing in multiple land sales and creating outstanding opportunities that are now available throughout Pelican Waters.
“A selection of builders include Ramsay Homes, In-Style Homes, Lifetime Construction, Stately Homes, Flood Family Homes, Murphy Homes, Crestmont Homes, Cush Constructions, Stylemaster Homes, Plantation Homes and many more.”
Across the community there are opportunities to suit all budgets from entry level to high-end waterfront homes in the $900,000 range.
“Diversity of product is a key feature of Pelican Waters where all tastes and budgets are catered for,’’ Mr Pressland said.
“From waterfront, waterview and residential dry lots and an array of ready built product ranging from units, town houses and duplexes, to rear lane homes built to maximise living space, to traditional modern homes right up to waterfront trophy homes, there really is something for everybody.
“The diversity of new homes means that no matter what you are looking for, Pelican Waters can cater to it.
“We have families looking for a typical four-bedroom, two-bathroom home with kids activity space and room in the backyard to an older demographic downsizing but not wanting body corporate living.
“The rear lane product, positioned on a smaller lot, almost no maintenance, but still with three and four bedroom options, double garage and space for a caravan or boat can meet this demand. There are large single and two storey duplexes also available to live in one and provide an income stream by renting the other or have your family close at hand,’’ he said.
“The uplift in employment opportunities on the Sunshine Coast is partly responsible for the increased demand in both land and new property with Pelican Waters lifestyle living options providing a fantastic place to live.
“There is a diverse range of people from all over the country starting to sort out their accommodation needs prior to starting work. Pelican Waters provides the type of safe, family friendly residential community that people are looking for to establish their lives.
“It ticks all the important boxes such as proximity to private and public schools, shopping centre, new Puma service station, health centres, great parks and bikeways, access to waterways connected to the Pumicestone Passage and all only a stone’s throw from the beach. Under construction now is the start of the new town centre and marina precinct with a new child care centre and medical health hub to commence soon.”
A range of home sites, waterfront villas, brand new homes, rear lane homes and town houses are all currently available at Pelican Waters which is leading the way in showcasing a diversity of product to suit any home buyer.
February 22nd also saw the release of 20 brand new home sites in the heart of the emerging Pelican Waters town centre and marina precinct.
