Hello and welcome to this week’s North Harbour Blog. This week, as a welcome to our new readers, I’m going to recap what North Harbour is now and our plans for the future.
North Harbour is a new development located in Burpengary East, about 15 minutes north of North Lakes on the Bruce Highway. Burpengary East was recently named one of the top suburbs to buy in which you get the most “bang for your buck” by Channel 9 and I have to say – we agree!
North Harbour is introducing a new destination into the Moreton Bay Region, one which will take shape over the next 15 years as part of the significant growth projected for the local area. The plan includes a significant amount of open space, parks, excellent amenities and a strong community focus – we’re building a new suburb for families to enjoy in a great location, between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.
Also in the plan are a marina (for which we’re currently awaiting approval), shops, cafes, restaurants and sports fields. North Harbour will create access to 9km of Caboolture River frontage and 1000 acres of adjoining parkland. This riverfront access is one of the reasons we called the development, “North Harbour”. The word Harbour also means “to give a home or shelter to” which is an apt name for such an all-encompassing development.
We’ve been very excited to welcome over 150 new families who now call North Harbour home. Our community is thriving and we have a resident-run Facebook group, North Harbour Community. Many of the families meet for picnics at the park, have birthday parties and catch up at the end of the school day. The park offers top of the range play equipment for both littles and bigger kids, plenty of shade, water and seating, and free Wi-Fi.
We also have free monthly events to welcome our new residents (and of course our visitors) such as Street Parties, Movies in the Park and regular visits from some of Brisbane’s most delicious and distinct food trucks.
We have just launched The Milman Release, Stage 16, and have sold approximately 400 blocks of land with 150+ families now moved into their new homes. New houses are being completed every week, Stages 1-12 have completely sold out and our Display Village is a big attraction showcasing the work of 14 local and national builders in 35 stunning Display Homes.
Our latest release is The Milman Release. Milman is Stage 16 on the plan and is our first release to be located adjacent to the open space at the Raff Creek environmental corridor which marks a major milestone in bringing North Harbour to life. Milman is also close to one of our proposed local parks which will include a playground, fitness equipment and shelters.
How does it work?
North Harbour sells new homes and land packages from our sales office located at the entrance to the development on the corner of Moreton Bay Boulevard and Buckley Road. With 35 stunning homes on display in the Display Village, we recommend you make a few visits to have a look at what’s on offer.
Our sales team can discuss your land requirements, review your options with you, show you through the plans and take you on-site to view your chosen block. The North Harbour Sales office and Display Village are open 10 am-5 pm, seven days a week. Please contact us for more information or to arrange an appointment. (If you haven’t already, we recommend you sign up for our newsletter and regular SMS updates.)
If you already have a builder in mind we will work with you to help you create your perfect home on your perfect block. We can also advise on which builder to choose if you have a certain block in mind and create the perfect new home for you. Aidan and the team at the office are around from 10 am-5 pm every day, except on public holidays. We have a great kids’ room at the sales office to keep the littlest members of the family entertained while you browse and the park is just across the road from the Display Village so they can run around while you talk things through. They might even make some local friends ready for your move.
One of the best things about buying a brand-new home is that you get to choose the perfect house for your needs. Mix and match kitchen styles, bedroom layouts, and outdoor and garden plans and get excellent interior ideas from the expert stylists in the Display Village.
North Harbour is only 15 minutes from North Lakes and IKEA, 10 minutes from Costco, 36 minutes from the Brisbane CBD, 29 minutes from the Brisbane Airport, 45 minutes from the Port of Brisbane and 35 minutes from the Sunshine Coast. With a proposed marina village being the focal point of North Harbour, a sense of community will emerge as the population grows. Planned sporting fields, 1000 acres of open space, schools, a business park and a marina village of shops, cafes and restaurants will add to the amenities of this great community
The Village Park at the end of Moreton Bay Boulevard is the first of the parks to be built in North Harbour. It incorporates two areas of play equipment to suit older children and preschoolers. It is beautifully landscaped with undulating grass mounds which kids love to run up and roll down and sand around the play equipment which keeps them safe from bumps and also provides fun in itself. Handy shelters, drinking fountains (for people and pets) and barbecues complete the Village Park for a morning or afternoon play session or a relaxed family barbecue.
It’s large, with 6000 sqm of space to have fun, relax and chat or coffee catch up with friends. There’s also enough space for you to exercise while you keep an eye on the kids or catch up on some emails using our free Wi-Fi.
Inside your new home, you can enjoy Australia’s fastest broadband connection, gas on tap for easy cooking, heating and hot water plus the enjoyment of that “brand new” feeling – in a beautiful home for the family you’ve created yourself.
