Anise, Bridgeman Downs
Ready-built townhouses have proven popular with downsizers seeking more certainty when buying a new home, with sales soaring at AVJennings’ Anise community in Bridgeman Downs after the completion of the first stage.
Anise has a range of completed townhome designs and a range of floorplans for buyers to choose from, including the popular 'Liquorice' design, which features three bedrooms with an additional lounge area.
Ally and Kevin Royce, who have moved to Anise after living in The Gap for 31 years, said the decision to downsize was not easy, but they welcomed the opportunity to recreate their life personally and financially.
"Finding ourselves empty-nesters, we started to consider downsizing. Too much of our precious spare time was being spent maintaining a large home and a pool that was infrequently used," Mrs Royce said.
"We had driven past Anise and were drawn to the interesting architectural style of the homes, and its prime location. We believe Anise represents good value for money.
"We fell in love with the Fennel design. It was very clever and functional with a ground floor master bedroom, and it was not too much of a downsize, with adequate space to accommodate and entertain family and friends.
"We wanted minimal maintenance and our new home is well designed for that. We love to travel, and this home truly affords us a “lock-up and go” lifestyle.
"When we are at home, we still have the pleasure of swimming in the pool and visiting the community garden filled with plants including rosemary, mint and lavender, relaxing in the park, and all of these facilities are maintained by the body corporate.
"The whole community has a lovely relaxed feel about it, and we are really enjoying being here."
AVJennings National Development Manager Angus Johnson said delivering spec builds had helped create more opportunities for different buyer types.
