We lift the veil on our brand new $55 million community

The exclusive grand reveal of Ingenia Lifestyle’s new over 50s community, Freshwater, has received an overwhelming response from downsizers seeking out gold class living on Brisbane’s north side.

Ingenia’s first venture into the competitive north Brisbane market, Freshwater, is located in Burpengary East and will span across five hectares to deliver 131 new homes for downsizers.

Regional Development Manager, Matt Fedrick, said Freshwater was an exciting new project and allowed Ingenia to introduce the unique offering of a gold class over 55s community at an attractive, competitive price point.

“Construction will soon start on the first stage of homes, as well as a five-home display village with our first residents expected to move in by early 2020.

“Our unique land lease model, where residents own their home and lease the land, means downsizers can purchase a brand new high-quality home at a significantly lower price – without having to worry about stamp duty or entry and exit fees.

“Brand new homes will start from $335,000 for a two bedroom, two bathroom and single car garage home.

“This is significantly less than our competitors, making Freshwater an affordable option for downsizers who want to live in a luxury community, but still have equity left over to enjoy life,” Matt said.

Freshwater will become a resort community and feature a multi-million-dollar clubhouse which is anticipated to include a gym, heated pool, library, lawn bowling green, cinema, visiting physician consulting rooms, an alfresco barbecue area and a sports bar.

Matt said demand from buyers had already been strong with local community engagement, providing an opportunity for downsizers to hear and make comments on the development plans for Freshwater.

“We have been working with the community through focus groups and educational event sessions to ensure that we are building a lifestyle oriented community that the local market can be proud of,” Matt said.
