Best of both worlds at new estate

first_img First home buyers Daniel Baker and Denni-Elle White were the first couple to sign up to build at the estate.More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020First Home Buyers Daniel Baker and Denni-Elle White are building at the new Estate Orchard in Jensen.Drawn by the semirural offerings, large lots and location, Ms White said The Orchard ticked all the right boxes. “Space really was one of the top considerations for us and we really didn’t want anything under 1000sq m,” she said.“We looked at a number of estates but The Orchard just really appealed to us. It’s close to everything but feels really peaceful.” One of their three children has a disability, so building a home to suit their family needs has always been a dream.“We have a son with cerebral palsy, so getting a house that was already built wasn’t good for us,” Ms White said.“So the house we’re building will be disability friendly with wider doors to allow our son to get around in his wheelchair or walker. We’re really excited and hope to get the keys to our house by Christmas.”The Orchard is in the heart of Townsville’s Northern Growth Corridor and set on 113 hectares of natural bushland in Jensen. Elements NQ Sales and Marketing Director Pene Slogrove at the new Orchard Estate in Jensen, QLD.AN inspiring masterplanned community set in an idyllic natural bush setting on Darling Road, Jensen, is providing a real point of difference for Townsville’s new homebuyers.Offering only large home sites, close to schools, shops and recreation, that are all fully serviced including town water and sewer, The Orchard is delivering contemporary living to a rural lifestyle. The Orchard sales and marketing manager Pene Slogrove said the development was attracting buyers who were seeking plenty of room for a pool or large shed but wanting to remain close to services. “The Orchard offers large home sites on a minimum of 1000sq m and it has been created with the concept of being able to enjoy your space without compromising on proximity to amenities such as schools and shops,” Mrs Slogrove said. “Our focus has been on creating a place that provides a sense of space and tranquillity from the moment you enter — somewhere that you truly feel at home. “We have put a lot of emphasis on the landscaping treatment, in particular the entry statement, and we hope that resonates throughout the entire community to create an inspiring place in an idyllic location and more importantly, a perfect lifestyle.” last_img read more

There’s plenty of room to relax and unwind.“That’s my pleasure here, when people come,’’ Dr Kazacos said.“It’s the most beautiful place to entertain — to have people enjoy the food, the music, the grounds.”The home’s Art Deco-inspired theatre with starlit ceiling, wine cellar, internal lift, and multiple terraces and balconies overlooking the manicured gardens, pool and Nerang River, are standout features.Dr Kazacos said the memory of his grandmother’s house, which had dirt floors and no electricity, made him feel guilty for living in such a beautiful home. What a view!“It was just perfect for me,” said Dr Kazacos, who has retired from medical practice.“I was from Sydney and I only intended to use it (the former property) as a summer house but when I got here, I never went back.”He decided to knock it down because it “wasn’t practical” to renovate, then rebuild.The original home was similar in size but Dr Kazacos said it did not have the eight-car underground garage like the one that is part of the mansion today.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa18 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days ago 60 Sophie Ave, Broadbeach Waters is on the market at $8.95 million.A GOLD Coast mega-mansion known as “The Palms” has hit the market with an $8.95 million price tag.The palatial Broadbeach Waters residence is one of a kind.Dr Michael Kazacos built the five-bedroom home over two years from 2008, but has lived on the property since 1988.
