Far more than just the northside’s most well-connected suburb, Aspley has long been a much-loved Brisbane location where families settle and never want to leave. With few remaining opportunities existing for new development to take place in this well-established locale, any new collection of homes presents a rare opportunity to gain a foothold in one of the northside’s most coveted locations – especially one which produces a striking architectural statement and promises to be a step above any other multi-residential offering the suburb has seen to date.
As a suburb long synonymous with family, it seems fitting that Sunderland Residences – the suburb’s newest collection of 16 boutique townhomes – honours the legacy of one of the first families in the area both in name and by its nature as an intimate collection of immaculately designed residences gathered in a community with heart.
A passion project for respected local developer Hosking Developments in collaboration with well-established, family-owned DiCarlo Property Group, the development team’s affection for and understanding of this beautiful suburb inspired a quest to create a new kind of family haven by engaging one of Brisbane’s leading design agencies HAL architects to help breathe new life into the storied existence of the site.
The end result is a celebration of space and grace, generosity and hospitality; a perfect balance of privacy, retreat, connection and community and a place where nature marries beautifully with built form.
One of 8 slightly different free-flowing and considered floorplans, Residence 10 sees seamless indoor/outdoor living positioned alongside dual side-by-side car accommodation at ground level, with 3 spacious bedrooms and a rare and generous secondary living space located privately upstairs.
On the lower level, the bright and open-hearted living area is framed by expansive glass sliding doors which seamlessly connect indoors and out, a well-considered floorplan opening up to an outdoor living space comprising a generous terrace and private courtyard where you can lose yourself in the lush subtropical landscaping and natural surrounds.
Upstairs, this Sunderland Residences home offers a sprawling master retreat attended by a spa-inspired ensuite and generous walk-in-robe with custom cabinetry, providing seclusion and comfort alongside two additional bedrooms and the refined luxury of a beautiful family bathroom. A secondary living space can be used as a sanctuary to escape the pace of everyday life or a rumpus room for sharing movies, games or your family’s favourite pastimes.
Overall, layouts have been designed to maximise living and day to day functionality while prioritising privacy, energy efficiency, style and choice. The design of the residence invites in an abundance of natural light and breeze, with sophisticated yet restrained material selections ensuring finishes are contemporary yet timeless and a choice of light and dark colour schemes broadening appeal. High quality flooring in a rural oak finish features throughout, while kitchens and bathrooms boast quality porcelain tiling and tapware, stone benchtops and sophisticated Italian appliances, promising style, convenience and longevity in meeting the demands of modern life.
Set amidst lush landscapes, stone pathways and even a residents’ veggie garden, each of these beautifully crafted townhomes is oriented for privacy while also engaging with the development’s premium facilities and shared space.
Be welcomed into a community with heart as Sunderland Residences promises strong appeal for downsizers who wish to remain in the local area, as well as young families seeking quality schools and recreation activities and young professionals who value the suburb’s unrivalled connectivity to the city and trade coast as two of Brisbane’s largest business zones and employment precincts.
LOCATION & LIFESTYLE
Locally too, Aspley is a place where family businesses flourish and with shops, restaurants and facilities to service local communities, there’s plenty to love about this Northside locale. Just 12km from the CBD, live where the city is close and green spaces even closer, enjoying proximity to health hubs, quality choices in early, primary, secondary and tertiary education and the convenience and connection of local shopping, dining and numerous arterial roads and public transport options including a bus depot and nearby rail stations making for an easy commute.
Close to the vibrant retail and entertainment precincts of Westfield Chermside and ever-popular Northlakes, Aspley also boasts its own well established shopping hubs and retail and service destinations including the Aspley Hypermarket with over 80 specialty food and retail outlets. Poised to benefit from the new urban village being developed at Carseldine which has already seen the delivery of a new sport and recreation precinct, the location is also close to the walking paths and bikeways of Marchant Park ensuring recreational options abound.
A LIFE LIVED BETTER
With demand expected to be strong as the new Sunderland Residences is released to Brisbane’s booming market, the promise of this place can now be realised by just 16 lucky new owners, benefitting from the vision of developers renowned for their quality product and sophisticated designs.
As Duke Realty director and selling agent Sam Patterson explains, “Aspley is actually a hard area to get into and this development is a rare opportunity for buyers to secure a quality product in a highly sought-after area at an accessible price point, while gaining lifestyle at their fingertips. Add to that the façade and overall look of this development is a total step up from what has previously been produced in the area and in my book, this kind of product matched with this kind of amenity equates to real estate gold.”
