Peter and Julie Walker had been living in their Grovedale home for 34 years, before they stopped in at the QUAY2 Torquay sales office by chance a few weeks ago, fell in love with the development and decided to buy a three-bedroom townhome called “The Lonsdale”.
“Our townhome is part of the limited edition ‘alfresco series’ featuring resortstyle living and a premium landscape package, as part of the 2019 Summer Garden Collection, we’re very excited and feel like it’s a real fresh start for us,” Mr Walker said.
They built their Grovedale home when they had three sons, all now grown up and living out of home.
Aged in their sixties, the upkeep on their large 1200m block was becoming increasingly hard.
“The Lonsdale still has plenty of room for our boys to stay and with a grandchild we will set up one room just for them,” Mr Walker said.
There are also playgrounds in the QUAY2 development in walking distance, as well as room for family get-togethers on the Walker’s rooftop terrace or alfresco dining area, where they can soak up the evening sun and a movie on the outdoor, wall-mounted television.
In the day, the family can shade under a mixed canopy of laser-cut panels and creepers across the overhead arbour reclining on the day bed, which features removable cushions.
“There are so many great inclusions, such as reverse cycle air conditioning in the three bedrooms and lounge, as well as double-glazing and photo-voltaic solar panels,” Mr Walker explained.
“The alfresco has a fridge and television, as well as a wall mounted, mains gas barbecue – the list just goes on and on.”
Each home has also been created to complement QUAY2’s environmentallyfriendly focus, with thoughtfullydesigned streetscapes, parks and even a community orchard.
“We’ve found everything excellent and the sales team have been a great help – they can’t do enough for you,” Mr Walker said.
“It’s so easy – you only have to make one choice, the light or dark colour scheme, and then everything is done.”
