Australia’s first over 50s golf and lifestyle community, Halcyon Greens, has capitalised on the lure and scarcity of golf course living with its first fairway-fronting release sold out in the first week of release.
All 10 homes in the Gold Coast community’s exclusive Fairways Series have sold for prices starting at $965,000, with nine of the residences selling in one day, reinforcing Halcyon Greens’ status as Queensland’s fastest selling over 50s community.
Each residence will front the third fairway of the Gainsborough Greens Golf Course, which adjoins the $300 million Halcyon Greens at Pimpama in the city’s northern growth corridor.
Further sweetening the golf offering, all home owners at Halcyon Greens receive exclusive membership benefits at the recently upgraded Gainsborough Greens Golf Club until 2027.
Halcyon joint managing director Bevan Geissmann said the swift buyer response to the Fairway Series had been phenomenal.
“The fact these buyers have committed to this precinct off-the-plan confirms the market’s confidence in Halcyon to deliver a superior product,” Dr Geissmann said.
“Buyers have strongly connected with the modern country club lifestyle Halcyon Greens will offer and we couldn’t be happier with the enthusiasm of buyers for our plans for this community.”
Dr Geissmann said the Fairway Series presented a new standard of luxury and would be unlike any designed and delivered by Halcyon in its 14-year history.
“They are a modern twist on country club style and will include new homes that offer three bedrooms, three bathrooms and an open living space with panoramic views.
“The Fairway Series includes three new colour schemes with subtle textures and extensive use of stone and timber.”
Most of the buyers are active retirees from Brisbane and among them is Brisbane property figure John Bonifant and his wife Robyn, who have purchased a home in the Fairway Series.
Mr Bonifant said they had been looking to downsize from their four-bedroom apartment on the river at Kangaroo Point but weren’t in any hurry.
“We had previously inspected Halcyon at Bli Bli and Vision at Hope Island, and had always thought the Halcyon community was an excellent concept,” Mr Bonifant said.
“We had been looking around for a while but never urgently, until we became aware of the Fairways Series. We realised a quick decision was necessary, and just as well we did because all bar one were spoken for in the first few hours of release.
“We have always been conscious of having a nice outlook, and the view from the Fairways Series is an outstanding, peaceful vista looking out over the parklands with unrestricted views to the golf course.”
The Bonifant’s were introduced to Halcyon Greens through two of John’s good golfing friends.
“My interest in Halcyon Greens was heightened when two of my golfing friends told me they were moving to the community.
“Robyn and I are both keen golfers and the facilities on offer at Halcyon Greens are spectacular. The new club house is beautiful, the golf course is great and the staff are fantastic.”
The couple purchased a 280sqm home with three bedrooms plus study and two-car lockup garage with buggy accommodation.
“The design choices are vast and a standout we’ve chosen is the vaulted ceiling, which extends to around 12-feet in height in the living areas. And the large covered deck at the back of the home is an entertainer’s dream come true.”
While the Fairways Series of homes is a sellout, other residences in the 500-home community are still available and priced between $474,000 and $750,000.
Aside from free golf club access, Halcyon Greens’ wider recreational offering includes 2.4ha of central parkland, clubhouse and lodge with fireplaces, outdoor and heated indoor pool, championship-size bowling green, floodlit tennis court, cinema, gym, dance studio, outdoor amphitheatre, walking trails and pickleball courts.
Home owners will also have access to a work shed, herb and vegetable garden, rose garden and fruit orchard, as well as storage facilities for boats, golf buggy, caravans and CCTV security.
