For just over $300,000 first-time buyers, young families and downsizers could own a new home 35 minutes from Brisbane’s CBD.
The Village at Bundamba by developer QM Properties is also close to shops, schools and transport.
Offering house and land from $326,900, the development is within 2km of two railway stations, a childcare centre, high school and TAFE, and neighbouring Costco Ipswich and Citiswich Industrial Estate.
The Bundamba project is the next chapter of QM’s low-maintenance living, boutique housing estates, developed in strategic locations and near amenities.
QM general sales manager Damien Ross said construction of the first stage, comprising 28 homesites, had started with completion of the lots expected by mid-year.
“Our first release has homesites ranging from 315sq m to 639sq m, with lots starting from $182,000, which is affordable considering the location,” Mr Ross said.
“This is our fourth Village community in southeast Queensland and each of these estates has been successful because buyers are choosing to live closer to the amenities they use every day.
“People are increasingly time poor, so the fact that buyers at The Village at Bundamba are able to jump on a train to commute to the city, drop the kids to school or do their shopping all within just a short drive is a huge positive.
“We’ll be expanding the offering with a community park, which will become like a second backyard for those residents who prefer to have a more compact lot with less upkeep, without sacrificing the ability to exercise, entertain and play in the great outdoors.”
There are plans in the pipeline for a neighbourhood shopping village and additional childcare centre to be built on an adjacent site.
Mr Ross said proximity to employment hubs was another key criteria for purchasers, with nearby Citiswich Industrial Estate and Costco creating hundreds of new jobs.
”Citiswich is Queensland’s largest commercial and industrial development, and as it continues to develop over the coming years, it will open up new opportunities for local workers,” he said.
“Costco is another option for retail workers, and with Ipswich just 10 minutes away and the Brisbane CBD 35 minutes away, Bundamba is a really central position for workers across all industries.”
