PRODUCT diversity is continuing to attract buyers to Ecco Ripley’s $500 million masterplanned community in one of South East Queensland’s fastest growing regions.
Local businessman, Mark Timms is among buyers who have snapped up lots in Brisbane’s western growth corridor after purchasing three properties within the Ecco Ripley community.
Mr Timms said he had been drawn to Ecco Ripley’s location, natural setting and capital growth potential and said it was a great opportunity to cement his long-term commitment and confidence in the region.
Choosing to build with Sekisui House for their easy flowing floor plan designs, value for money and service, Mr Timms purchased a 4-bedroom Viola design after viewing it on display in Ecco Ripley as well as one of Sekisui House’s first release duplexes.
“I see tremendous value in Ripley compared to other Brisbane or Ipswich suburbs,” he said.
“The growth opportunity was a major deciding factor in my decision to build in Ecco and presents a very exciting investment and lifestyle proposition.
“The entire process with Sekisui House has been exceptional.
“From the quality of customer service to the design options and knowledge of the sales team – I would definitely recommend Sekisui.”
Mr Timms said recent community events such as Sunday Yumday and the NRL Grand final in the Park really highlighted strong resident engagement within the community.
“Their recreational spaces and events bring the community together and enhance the quality of life for residents at Ecco Ripley,” he said.
“I have already noticed a true sense of togetherness within the community – it is definitely the perfect place to raise a young family.”
Ecco Ripley will feature more than 40 hectares of open space including community gardens, playgrounds, sporting facilities, picnic areas, off-leash dog parks and barbeque and water play areas.
Ecco Ripley sales manager Scott Blaney said Sekisui House was committed to providing a wide variety of affordable and quality housing choices.
“The community offers a range of products including terraces, duplexes, a Fit&Finished range that allows buyers to move in sooner with the homes being under construction or ready to move in, house and land packages and land only options to suit buyers at every stage of life and their specific lifestyle and affordability requirements,” he said.
“It’s been important to us to integrate the right product mix to ensure Ecco Ripley continues to become a diverse and thriving community.”
The community will also be boosted with the delivery of the $1.5 billion Ripley Town Centre, which will become the commercial and social hub of the region.
The centre will offer a major regional shopping centre, a transit centre, health and education facilities, cafes, restaurants, parks and other community facilities to cater for the region’s projected population of 120,000 people over the next 20 years.
Since launching in 2014, Ecco Ripley is already home to more than 500 residents who have either moved in or are building their homes.
