Award-winning developers McCloy Group, has released their latest community, right here in Goonellabah. The initial release on Saturday 16th November offered 23 homesites to the market and saw 12 sold on day 1!

Stage 1, the Cedar Release had shown keen interest from buyers for several weeks in the lead up to the launch, with prospective buyers eager to secure their piece of the community from the outset so much so a camp out started from 2:30pm Friday, with a prospective buyer spending the night to ensure their purchase, other keen purchasers joined the line up early Saturday morning.

In total near 200 people attended the launch day to enjoy the free kids activities, gourmet brekkie rolls and coffee by local companies; a free treat put on by the McCloy Group as well as to get their first look at the new community. Local builders also attended and all reports show keen interested in the area and the opportunity it provides for families.

“We were pleased to welcome many local families and received good feedback about the quality of the development and future plans for a children’s park and playground” Sam Rowe, Project Director commented.

Eastwood, located off Invercauld Road in Goonellabah spans 21 hectares and will bring 135 new homesites to the market across several stages. Stage 1 homesites have been designed to suit a variety of buyers needs with benched blocks available and some with mild slope perfect for split level designs to capture the spanning views.

The community has been crafted with the natural landscape in mind, utilising local site rock for a striking sandstone entry feature and retaining walls as well as a preservation approach, with over 200 mature trees planned to be planted across the project.

Mr Rowe said that Goonellabah was identified as a key growth area of the Northern Rivers with its proximity to Lismore CBD and coastal beaches of Ballina presenting major appeal for buyers.

“We identified the need for an affordable housing offering in the area and by enlisting leading civil contractors we’ve been able to deliver stage 1, within 18 months of acquiring the site.”

“Our approach goes beyond property development and we wanted to showcase that, by building stage 1 before releasing to the market, so buyers were able to walk the site and see first-hand the McCloy Group approach… Planting mature street trees, utilising natural rock and open space is core to our developments. Statement entry features and public art donations are also something we’re proud to include for future residents” Mr Rowe added.

The McCloy Group are known to build masterplanned communities and Eastwood has set the standard of just that.
