Coastal lifestyle options in Torquay are endless.
From a game of golf at RACV Torquay, taking the family to brunch at a beachfront cafe, a Sunday drive along the iconic Great Ocean Road, or simply taking in the salt air on a beach walk or out on the water surfing famous breaks, fishing for wild Australian salmon at neighbouring Jan Juc beach or hitting a Surf Coast trail run.
The only downside is that making the most of all that’s on offer in the region means you don’t want to spend all weekend mowing the lawn and doing home-maintenance.
Instead, there’s a growing trend towards lock-up-and-leave lifestyle living in the form of townhome dwellings.
You’ll find just that at Torquay’s premier beachside community, QUAY2, where Avant Townhomes offer architectural-designed luxury beachside living at its best.
One purchaser, media manager Danielle Wright, snapped up one of the first to go on sale.
She says the quieter location of the Torquay North property development meant her family could have the benefit of being close to all the action in the main town centre and beachfront, but a quieter child-friendly base with many local families living nearby for her children to play with after school.
“The extra features, such as solar panels and battery storage options, and the environmentally-friendly building practises also appealed,” says Mrs Wright.
“Having the weekly Saturday Farmer’s market, open green spaces, parklands and many playgrounds and sports ovals to cater for kids at any age, as well as accessible bike-riding options and even an orchard are also a bonus.”
The efficiency of design of an Avant Townhome also means purchasers get the high quality of a new build and the versatility of either a one-, two- or threebedroom property, but with a smaller footprint than a stand-alone home.
“I felt safe buying in QUAY2 after the success of the original The Quay estate by the same developer,” Mrs Wright said.
“I know a couple of people who were so happy with their purchase in The Quay, that they’ve now bought in QUAY2 – either to upgrade or to buy as an investment.”
Avant Townhomes also come with exceptional inclusions, such as doubleglazing throughout; photo-voltaic solar panels; reverse cycle heating/cooling to living areas and bedrooms; barbecue connected to mains gas and wallmounted 55” flatscreen Smart TVs and prices start at just $470,000.
The Avant Townhomes Sales Centre is open seven days a week, 11am-5pm, on the corner of Surf Coast Highway and Merrijig Drive, Torquay. For more information, head to Quay2.com.au/townhomes.
