A new life at Ellendale

A new life at Ellendale

Uprooting your entire family and jetting across the world to settle in a new country is no easy feat. But for the Seewald family, a whole new chapter of their lives has been forged by making their very first property purchase in Australia – their dream home at Ellendale. 
After relocating from Johannesburg, South Africa, to Australia in 2017, Larisa Seewald and husband Trevor, along with their two children Adison (10) and Kyle (4), found work and a rental property in Upper Kedron.
The couple then scoured suburbs around Brisbane to find a home to purchase, before realising their dream community was only a stone’s throw away at Ellendale. 
Larisa heard about Ellendale through word-of-mouth while working as a teacher’s aide at Ferny Grove State Primary School, and decided to find out more by visiting the Sales Centre. 
“The minute we spoke to Allan at the Sales Centre we were sold,” she says. 
“He told us absolutely everything we needed to know, and after taking a walk around the beautiful, leafy community, we knew straight away it was home.”
The Seewald’s are building a two-storey, four bedroom, three-bathroom home, with a spacious backyard for the kids to play. 
Larisa says she looked at several other communities and pre-existing homes in surrounding suburbs, but none quite ticked all the boxes. 
“The other homes we looked at just didn’t have the right feel, and we didn’t get that homely feeling like we had straight away at Ellendale,” she says. 
“We love that it feels peaceful and quiet, yet is close to major schools and universities for the kids.
“Also having the Ferny Grove train line so close is a major plus for when the kids eventually commute to the city for university and work. 
“Everything we could possibly need as a family is within arms' reach.
“There is such a warm community atmosphere at Ellendale and we can’t wait to make new friends and have our kids grow up in a safe and secure environment.
“We can’t say enough kind things about the sales team, who really have been there every step of the way.
“The thing we are most looking forward to is owning our very first property in our new home country.
