In this week’s Blog: Making the Most of the First Home Buyer’s Grant & Builder Focus on GJ Gardner at North Harbour
April 4, 2018
GJ Gardner Homes is a Queensland grown, family owned business which started out in 1983. Since then the team has established a reputation of being one of the finest custom home builders in the country, so you can feel confident that you are dealing with a builder you can trust. GJ Gardner has two home designs showcased in North Harbour’s Display Village: the Mandalay 292 and The Kensington 328.
The Mandalay 292 is located at Lot 2, on Fitzroy Street in the North Harbour Display Village. This single storey design offers 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a 2-car garage. The Mandalay provides separate living zones which wrap around a central outdoor space fit for a pool, allowing natural light and cool cross breezes to come indoors – a real advantage with our warm Queensland weather.
The Kensington 328 is located on Lot 3, Fitzroy Street, and is a two-storey design also offering 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2-car garage. The Kensington design includes flowing indoor spaces and connections to the outdoors, offering outstanding family living. An upstairs retreat provides a perfect separation of family and personal spaces. The large master bedroom, with its huge walk-in-robe and ensuite, has been designed with privacy in mind and is a perfect place to relax.

First Home Buyers at North Harbour
Many of our residents are first home buyers who have chosen to build at North Harbour to make the most of the opportunity the First Home Buyers Grant offers to climb onto the property ladder.
The Grant is currently $20,000 and is available to those who meet the eligibility criteria. To qualify you must be:
- Aged 18 years or older
- A permanent resident or Australian citizen
- Buying or building a brand-new home
If you’d like to find out more about the Grant and how you can access it, the North Harbour team has put together some helpful information on our website which includes house and land packages designed specifically with first home buyers in mind, including further details on the Grant and the eligibility criteria.
North Harbour is popular with first home buyers for several reasons including the longevity of the project which is currently in development and will grow over 15 years to completion of our masterplan. It is an investment that is destined to grow in value during this time and beyond – demand for this complete lifestyle destination is already high and is expected to increase as more amenities come online including childcare centre, future parks, proposed marina, sports precinct, shops, restaurant and bars.
There is a lot happening at North Harbour and our community is thriving. We have two parks currently open and more under construction (including our $3m Heritage Precinct) with more to come in the future including a proposed dog park. Regular weekly events include North Harbour parkrun and Sunrise Yoga in the Park which are both free to attend. Our new Sales & Information Centre is due to open mid-year and will also include play equipment as well as a café which we anticipate will become a hub for the neighbourhood.
North Harbour is located right in the heart of the growth corridor between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. Our suburb of Burpengary East and neighbouring suburb of Burpengary regularly places on lists of “best bang for your buck” suburbs and since the first residents moved into North Harbour the local area has boomed with new shopping centres, upgraded sports centres and improved facilities.
North Harbour is close to everything – Brisbane CBD, beaches, the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and Moreton Bay with its many islands.
North Harbour is located along nine kilometres of river frontage and the masterplan includes 1000 acres of public spaces and parklands, with planned playgrounds, picnic facilities, pathways, cycle ways and recreation and sporting facilities.
The North Harbour sales team aims to make buying your first home as simple and enjoyable as possible. We are on hand 7 days a week to guide you through the process, our Sales and Information Centre is a great first point to review the great value first home buyers house and land packages that are now available. With 35 display homes to visit we appreciate the journey to building your first home can become overwhelming so we’re on hand with free coffee and biscuits, bottled water, bags for all the brochures you collect on the way and even umbrellas if you’re house hunting on a rainy day!
