The Benefits of Living in Strathpine
- 12 June 2018
Just 19 kilometres north of Queensland’s capital city lies the established suburb of Strathpine. Its proximity to Brisbane City and easy access to the highway has meant that Strathpine has always been a highly sought-after suburb for families and professionals. And now, thanks to an exciting new development, home buyers will once again have the opportunity to secure house and land space in this coveted area between Brisbane and Moreton Bay.
Originally farmland and even home to an army base in the 1940s, Strathpine’s development peaked in the 1960s when Brisbane’s population began to expand rapidly. As a result, Brisbane’s neighbouring communities saw much of the existing farmland redeveloped for the residential market, and since this time, Strathpine has seen continued growth of its residential population and commercial infrastructure. Just minutes from Brisbane City, yet nestled amongst the Moreton Bay region, Strathpine enjoys the best of both worlds with easy access to both the bay region and the city’s many amenities. Just a short train or bus ride away from the inner city, Strathpine’s well-developed public transport network caters easily to its 10,000-strong population for both work and play. The Caboolture and Redcliff rail lines also offer regular services to these outer-lying areas and gives access to the South East’s northern recreational hotspots. The nearby highway offers an easy commute to the nearby Gold Coast region, making Strathpine an ideal location for residents wishing to make the most of South East Queensland’s many beautiful weekend and holiday destinations.
Situated along the North Pine River, Strathpine’s residential streets are bordered by ample parklands and plenty of green space, making it an equally great place to raise a family or relax in retirement. Other important amenities are just a stone’s throw away, including the local Strathpine Centre. The area’s major shopping centre is home to supermarket giants Woolworths, Coles and Aldi as well as dozens of specialty stores, a gym, a bowling alley and the BCC cinema complex.
Of course, no popular metropolitan suburb would be complete without local schools, of which Strathpine has three (two primary schools as well as the Pine Rivers State High School), and the area is also home to private Anglican school, St Paul’s, and several nearby kindergartens. The suburb is also serviced by several private hospitals and medical clinics and is only minutes away from public hospitals such as Redcliff Hospital and Brisbane’s major medical precincts.
Such a highly sought-after suburb can, of course, be a challenge to build a new home in, due to a lack of available land. However, those looking to find a new home in Strathpine will be delighted by the recent development of The Meadows by Villa World. The rich, riverside plains of Strathpine were, for generations, home to a cattle farm by the same name. Villa World’s development of this picturesque space has meant that the spirit of the property lives on as it welcomes a new generation of families. The community, built with families and healthy lifestyle in mind, boasts manicured green landscapes and outdoor activity areas perfect for playing or simply basking in the neighbourhood’s serenity with a picnic in the parklands. Walking and cycle tracks encourage residents to enjoy the outdoors, while a 2km exercise loop complete with distance markers, push-up and sit-up benches, and other interactive exercise stations make staying fit a pleasure for the whole family. In a unique twist sure to delight residents and their visitors, The Meadow’s landscaping includes edible gardens bearing a variety of fruit and vegetables.
With house and land packages starting from just $459,500, The Meadows is one of the area’s most affordable locations for building a new home. And yet, as home buyers have come to expect from Villa World, the community features cutting-edge, architecturally-designed homes built with modern family living in mind. These contemporary 3 and 4-bedroom properties come NBN ready and are delivered fully landscaped and ready to call home. Premium finishes such as stainless-steel appliances and stone benchtops, as well as cleverly designed home storage areas within the extended garage spaces make these homes some of the most impressive you will find.
Strathpine’s relaxed riverside environment is a rare find in a suburb so close to the city, and new homes within the Villa World development are second to none for value and lifestyle. For young families, first home buyers, investors and working professionals alike, The Meadows offers unique and affordable new house and land packages that do not compromise on quality and lifestyle.
