The rising popularity of low maintenance homes is showing no signs of abating during 2019 as more and more homebuyers recognise the benefits of living options that leave plenty of free time to enjoy life.
Affordability, prime locations and smart, spacious floorplans are just some of the reasons why buyers at all stages of life are turning their attention to townhomes, terraces and apartments.
Matt Patullo, Senior Development Manager at Stockland, said Stockland’s latest Sunshine Coast townhome project, Sway Birtinya, was a prime example of the new generation of townhomes offering convenience, location and luxury living.
“Well designed townhomes are highly liveable, spacious and appealing to a wide range of homebuyers who want affordability and convenience without sacrificing style and luxury,” Mr Patullo said.
“The outstanding response to Sway, which is now more than 25 per cent sold, continues the trend evidenced at Stockland’s Brightwater community at Mountain Creek.
“Quality inclusions and coastal architecture combined with low-maintenance living and convenient access to dining, shopping and other key amenities have resulted in strong appeal for a wide range of buyers.
“Sway Birtinya has been carefully designed as a waterfront urban oasis in a tranquil and private setting. At the same time the community is within walking distance of the Stockland Birtinya Shopping Centre and Sunshine Coast Health Precinct, offering the best of both worlds.
“We have included a wide range of designs, from one bedroom apartment-style living through to four bedroom family homes, to respond to the growing demand from all customer segments, including first home buyers, busy families and those looking to downsize.”
Construction is now under way and progressing well, with completion of the first stage currently expected in early 2020.
Mr Patullo said that buyers were continuing to act quickly at Sway, reflecting strength in the underlying local market conditions driven by continued infrastructure spending, which was underpinning jobs and population growth.
Due to the continuing strong demand, a new release of townhomes has been recently launched for sale.
Featuring 60 stunning designer homes spread across a secluded 1.25 hectares, Sway Birtinya will include a central park and a swimming pool and barbecue pavilion for the exclusive use of residents.
Prices range from $339,000 for a one bedroom apartment-style townhome with a private courtyard; from $425,000 for a two bedroom, two bathroom coastal style townhome; from $469,000 for a three bedroom townhome; and from $599,000 for a four bedroom lakeside townhome.

TIPS FOR MAXIMISING SPACE
Off the wall: Create the illusion of more space by placing furniture away from walls rather than against them. Even a few centimetres can make a big difference.
Line it up: A striped rug can create the feeling of length in a room when the stripes are run parallel to the longest side of the room. Get the same effect by running thick stripes vertically up a feature wall.
In harmony: Achieve balance in your home by being subtle with your pattern choices and making sure everything is in harmony, rather than opting for a feature pattern.
Upside of green: A vertical garden is a great way to have a lush green area without taking up too much space. You can also utilise the space for edible plants or sweet-smelling climbing vines like jasmine.
Perfect illusion: Use see-through or reflective items such as glass desks, large mirrors, open shelving and transparent plastic chairs to make rooms seem larger. A large mirror placed on a wall facing a window will reflect light around the room while creating the illusion of a second window.
