Eight lots have been snapped up at the Haven Estate stage three pre-release, set to be complete in November, with Lachlan Nielson the first to purchase during the pre-release. He is pictured with developer Stephen Ellis. PICTURE: Matt Taylor.“My partner and I were looking for a house to rent but came to the conclusion that buying our own home was better than renting at this time,” Mr Nielson said. “I wanted to build a new four bedroom house and we needed to be close to town but all the other developments we looked at were about 30 minutes away from the city.“Haven just ticked all our boxes in terms of price, location and design and they were really flexible with what I wanted with the build.”More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020New home sales consultant Tammy Baczynski said all the new land lots would continue to be built up to the flood immune Q100 level with extra engineering put into street drainage, easements, and storm run-off. “Because Haven remained high and dry during the February floods, we have definitely seen a massive rise in inquiries and buyers with record breaking land sales here at Haven over the last two quarters,” Ms Baczynski said.Director at Ellis Developments Stephen Ellis said the houses that would be built at Stage 3 were responding to a shift in demand for cleverly designed, well-executed inner-city urban homes.“At Ellis Developments and our projects such as Haven and Railway Cottages we are known for our meticulous attention to detail,” Mr Ellis said. “Haven is a testament to our drive for excellence and improving the way our clients live in their homes without compromising on designer inclusions.” House and land packages at Stage 3 of the development start at $289,000 for a 2 bedroom home, $359,000 for 3 bedrooms and $385,000 for 4 bedrooms.
