My partner and I were looking to invest in the Sunshine Cove estate for retirement as well as for its potential high growth being close to the new CBD and with the new hospital of 5500 staff within a short driving distance. We had both never build a new home before.
We selected a north facing block and researched quality builders. We went with Beach Homes and have never regretted it because of the guaranteed quality finish and willingness to return at any time to fix up any small or big issues.
We wanted our house to be different and energy efficient. We took our ideas to Beach Homes who accommodated everything we wanted and added value with inform design choices including inset decorative screens at the front of the home and highlighting pergolas at entry points front and rear.
The enhanced height of ceilings throughout the home drives cool air up and out of the home during summer with very little need for the integrated air conditioning system. We used drought resistant plantings with succulents and local native plantings offsetting a native orchid bed in the cool shaded plaza entry to the home. To top off the 6 Star energy rated home we added 6.28 KW of solar with capacity for battery connection in due course.
Because we had just come up from inner city Brisbane we added secure mesh over the windows but found to our delight the whole estate to be very safe with neighbours talking to each other regularly and watching out for each other's gardens, pets and homes when you went away. In seven short months we made great friendships both beside our home and across the water, spurred on by our evening walks through the estate.
Most homeowners in Sunshine Cove appear to have come from many other places and that in itself encourages the formation of new friendships and bonds that established estates do not foster. It has only been a new opportunity interstate that forces us to sell our dream home.
