New boutique lots at Ellendale
The latest stage at Ellendale in Upper Kedron has launched, offering the rare chance to build a brand-new home close to the Brisbane city centre for less than $500,000.
Cedar Glen comprises just 39 boutique homesites, ranging from 263sqm to 537sqm, and starting from $280,000, with the lots designed to meet the needs of buyers wanting affordability, low maintenance and a prime location.
Purchasers will also benefit from the added incentive of having their fencing and front yard landscaping covered by Ellendale developer, Cedar Woods.
The new homesites adjoin a planned neighbourhood shopping precinct with retail, a medical centre and childcare centre, adding a new level of convenience for buyers.
"Ellendale is a diverse community, with a wide range of lot sizes and outlooks available, and this latest release further adds to that choice," says Cedar Woods' Senior Development Manager, Peter Starr.
"We understand breaking into the property market can be hard for young homebuyers and the opportunities to secure a brand new, contemporary house and land for under $500,000 near the Brisbane city centre are few and far between.
"As such, we have had a lot of interest from first home buyers looking for an entry level option and have designed this release to suit, with these purchasers also able to boost their deposit by accessing the State Government's $15,000 First Home Owners’ Grant."
Mr Starr says more empty nesters and retirees were also looking for more compact homesites, allowing them to downsize within the area and stay close to friends and family.
"These purchasers are looking to downsize their homesite to upsize their lifestyle or to unlock equity, and buying new is ideal as it ticks the box of low maintenance both now and into the future," he says.
"The modern couple and family are also looking for a home that puts the emphasis on lifestyle, meaning they want to spend less time maintaining and more time enjoying where they live with work, restaurants, cafes, shops, schools, services and other conveniences all in easy reach."
Mr Starr says builders were offering a range of savvy designs to suit boutique lots, so those who chose this option didn't have to compromise on space.
"Clever contemporary design means buyers benefit from a spacious floor plan inside, which integrates with the backyard for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining," he says.
"It is a smart and sustainable way of living, and is increasingly becoming a popular choice, particularly for those who don't have a large family living at home."
