Build in the foothills

first_imgHillside GardensWITH hillside views and recreational facilities soon to be built nearby, the Hillside Gardens estate is perfect for those wanting a new home near nature.Ray White Kirwan owner Nicky Faulks said the Hillside Gardens estate was connected to the popular Greenview estate, but offered more of an exclusive environment.“It’s an exclusive estate in Mount Louisa, tucked up against the foothills,” Ms Faulks said.“Most of the blocks have hillside views and you’re surrounded by nature.”Ms Faulks said Hillside Gardens lured buyers with the small size of the estate, with only 38 blocks available when the estate was released in the middle of last year.“Building has commenced with some homes already completed,” Ms Faulks said.“Fourteen blocks have already been sold and it’s proving very popular.”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 2020Blocks range from 416 -657sq m in size, and begin at $157,500.Ms Faulks said their target market was first homeowners and people wanting to downsize, and exclusivity aside, convenience was the area’s next biggest drawcard.“It’s a fabulous location with James Cook University, Townsville Hospital and Lavarack Barracks only a 13 minute drive away,” Ms Faulks said.She said there were also great schools and three shopping centres nearby.In late April Townsville City Council announced plans to transform Mount Louisa into a recreational area as part of their Townsville 2020 vision, after gathering local feedback mid last year.These plans include walking tracks, viewing platforms and barbecue areas, particularly along the ridge line as Mount Louisa is one of the highest peaks in the city.This comes as an alternative to the highly popular Castle Hill lookout and walking tracks.Community consultation will continue to occur during the development of the concept plan, which is expected to be complete in October.last_img
