Strong demand is expected for new sections following regulatory approval for an innovative new subdivision in Invercargill. The first ten sections in Inverurie Estate are now for sale as the fully consented development is readied for market.
Set in an idyllic semi-rural area off Retreat and Bainfield roads in North Invercargill, the sections offer an enviable residential location and lifestyle, just minutes from the town centre.
The 10 will be the only sections to be available off the plans and landowners Gus and Barbara Johnston said they expected strong demand for them.
“Inverurie is unique,” said Mr Johnston. These are generous sections in a development designed in a classic, country estate style and this early release offers people the opportunity to secure their position here. There are no similar lifestyle options available in Invercargill and we expect this estate to be a popular lifestyle choice for families.”
The sections are the first to be made available in the 32-section stage one of the Inverurie Estate development plan. Buyers can expect full titles to their property in December 2011. The fully serviced sections range from 1392sqm to 5035sqm and the first sections are priced from $260,000 to $295,000.
When fully complete, Inverurie Estate will be home to 75 properties in a park-like setting of dry-stone walls, post and rail fencing, exotic woodlands and native ponds.
The Johnstons are delighted that the development was now a reality.
“Inverurie provides the very best sections available, offering a lifestyle which normally people could only find on a rural block – here we have created that spacious, country living without the hassle and disruption of farm animals and farming practices, although household pets are very welcome,” said Mr Johnston.
Landscaping for Inverurie has been designed by Paddy Baxter of Queenstown landscape design firm Baxter Design Group. Mr Baxter says the design respects and encourages the surrounding landscape.
“We have retained the rural amenities of the area and included extensive woodlands and road reserves of up to 50m. The through road moves naturally through the landscape, there are no urban trappings such as kerb and channeling and roadside boundary fences are post and wire so the overall effect is one of simple, understated rural elegance. The woodland areas offer public recreation and people will enjoy driving, cycling or walking through the area.”
The development has benefits for the entire community through the development of walking and biking trails that will eventually connect with others in the area.
