It’s often said that homebuyers will always have to compromise on something.
The family yearning for a newly built house might have to settle for a small block in a new suburb. The couple that wants to be away from the noise of the city might have to settle for long commute to work.
12 River Drive in Queanbeyan is one of those rare developments where you get the best of both worlds, in every aspect. A modern design house in an established suburb? Tick.
A river reserve location away from the hustle and bustle but not too far to commute? Tick.
A big enough backyard perfect for the kids or entertaining? Tick.
The recently completed freestanding three and four-bedroom homes have already proved popular among locals, with only a limited number remaining.
Ian McNamee and Partners director of sales Darren Bennett says 12 River Drive has set a new benchmark in contemporary family living.
“Its design and quality finishes deliver a family environment as functional as it is beautiful,” Darren says.
“The designs all feature double garages with internal access, big backyards and a brick finish, where ongoing maintenance is minimal.”
Spanning three levels, the residences have been finished to an exceptional standard throughout. Featuring a generous 171.5m2 of living, the four-bedroom homes offer ensuites to the master and guest bedrooms, two living zones and a master suite with walk in robe, ensuite and balcony.
All units feature floor to ceiling tiles in bathrooms, light-filled living areas, ducted heating and cooling, entry foyers and ample storage.
The residences are an easy walk to the local shops, parks and Queanbeyan river walking trails (a number of homes have backyards with their own gate access to the river reserve.)
“From a lifestyle point of view, it has so many benefits,” says Darren.
“They are currently in the process of building a path that will run along the river, so as a resident you will have access to a first-rate river walk every day.”
Darren says the residences come with all the benefits of freestanding home, without the high price tag.
“Everything you could want is here for your enjoyment, and it’s been very popular among families already, where else can you find a brand new house in an established area and backing the River Reserve” he says.
“One is currently being rented out at $650 per week so it’s a great option for investors, too.”
