Trinity Property Consultants (TPC) has taken the master planned estate concept to a new level in Mackay, with their strategically designed development of Somerset Park in Andergrove.
TPC has improved upon the master planned estate model to create the conveniently located and strategically designed Somerset Park, carefully planning a variety of allotment sizes and dwelling designs to the highest quality, guaranteeing that the completed Somerset Park community will be a prestigious development.
Somerset Park buyers can choose from a wide range of architecturally designed luxury three, four and five bedroom homes positioned on a variety of lot sizes, some with lake views.
TPC developer Jim Relph said buying in a well-situated, strategically designed master planned estate offers peace of mind, knowing all homes will be of an equally high standard of quality, design and construction, close to essential services for a convenient and enjoyable lifestyle.
“The most important investment anyone can make is their home and purchasers can be assured of the quality of the whole estate at Somerset Park,” Mr Relph said.
“All Somerset Park homes are spacious, with fully tiled living areas and quality finishes including stone kitchen and bathroom benchtops, professional landscaping and fully fenced gardens,” he said.
“Somerset Park is situated off Bedford Road, offering convenient living in a prime, family-friendly location, with a major line bus stop at the front door, six kilometres from Mackay’s central business district, modern marina and the city’s main beach, and Mackay airport a 10-minute drive away.
“Shopping is close by, with Woolworths within a kilometre of the estate and Mt Pleasant Shopping Centre within five kilometres, offering 65 stores including well-known national retailers and local specialty stores.
“The estate is well-situated for growing families, with 11 private and public primary and secondary schools within 3.5 kilometres, some within walking distance, and 10 day care centres within five kilometres.
“Tertiary education is also available at Mackay’s Central Queensland University, recently merged with Central Queensland TAFE to create two campuses with state of the art learning facilities and a $46 million Trades Training Centre, offering more than 300 courses and programs from certificates to masters degrees.
“Essential health care services are close at hand for Somerset Park residents, with five medical centres, two pharmacies and a hospital within a five kilometre radius.
“The estate is also surrounded by recreational and entertainment facilities including parks, sporting fields, bowls and golf clubs, a cinema complex and restaurant precinct, providing for an active, healthy and social lifestyle.”
Independent property researcher Paul Broad, managing director of Broad Property Research & Advisory, said residential property in strategically designed master-planned estates tends to outperform the general housing market.
“The capital growth increase over the past decade for houses in a range of master-planned communities has been significantly higher than the growth rate applicable to houses in the broader local government area (LGA) in which the master-planned communities are located,” Mr Broad said.
TOTAL Property Group managing director and Somerset Park marketing manager Adrian Parsons said the investment and lifestyle appeal of strategically designed master planned estates was reflected by strong interest in Somerset Park, with Stage 1 almost sold out.
“Buyers are looking for the investment security, high quality homes and convenient lifestyle offered by strategically designed master planned estates like Somerset Park, and are realising that now is the optimal time to buy in Mackay with the latest Real Estate Institute of Queensland property report showing the local property market has just moved past the bottom of the cycle towards recovery and growth,” Mr Parsons said.
“Savvy investors typically try to catch the real estate market as it starts to rise, and Somerset Park currently has a limited number of completed homes available in a variety of configurations from $369,000,” he said.
“These homes are ready for buyers to purchase at the best time in the property cycle to achieve the highest possible capital gain over time.
“A second display home opened at the estate recently, so there are now three and four bedroom display homes open for public viewing at 1/14 Somerset Drive and 7 Somerset Drive, Andergrove.”
Somerset Park will see 250 homes, duplexes and townhouses built across four stages over the next two to three years – a significant development for the Mackay region.
