Mooloolaba, Australia (PressExposure) August 21, 2009 -- THE SOMERSET region will welcome its newest residents in 50 years, with the release of the residential address Somerset Village Green to the market.
Somerset Village Green, by Queensland based property developer Wave Group, is a nine-lot subdivision within the Somerset Township, near the well-known dam. The new residential community will be the first subdivision offering within the town in over 50 years.
Somerset Village Green is situated on the site of the townâs former school, which was closed in 2000 after holiday makers made the village their own.
Wave Group director Keith Grisman said interest has been strong in the boutique residential community, which offers land or house and land packages.
âThe residential community has a lot to offer new purchasers, including owner-occupiers or investors looking for a great holiday home close to home.â
The Somerset Village Green community is mindful of its surrounds and designed on ecological and sustainable principles. This includes its own environmentally friendly sewer, which is treated with minimal chemicals and unique to other Somerset homes, which still rely on septic systems. The residential community also has underground electricity and plenty of town water access from the neighbouring dam.
The site was introduced to Wave Group by long time holiday residents Pat and Petrina Ryan, of award-winning Ryan Designer Homes, who saw the unparalleled opportunity to develop the area, nestled in bushland and within rock skimming distance to Somerset Dam.
Pat Ryan said the Somerset region is a great tree-change opportunity and an ideal lifestyle so close to the city.
âThe lifestyle and the close proximity to the city is what originally motivated our family, including our teenage sons, to secure a holiday home at the Somerset Dam more than 15-years-ago,â Mr Ryan said.
Mr Ryan - whoâs youngest son has gone on to win national championship titles in Australia and New Zealand in wakeboarding - said it was their ultimate love for boating and skiing that led to their investment in designing and planning Somerset Village Green community along with Wave Group.
âIt is well over 50 years since the township was first planned and built around the construction of the dam and it is an exciting and historic opportunity to offer new home sites for families and retirees who want to live somewhere truly special,â Mr Ryan said.
âSomerset Dam is now at full capacity and welcomes triple its number of residents every weekend for boating, swimming, water skiing, jet skiing, wakeboarding and bush walking around the lake.
âLake Somerset also hosts one of the biggest national family fishing competitions each year, popular for its big Bass and Golden Perch. Itâs a great family-focused community to be a part of.â
Ryan Designer Homes has also custom designed plans for individual homes to fit each block within Somerset Village Green.
Land at Somerset Village Green begins at just $185,000 with house and land packages starting from $420,000.
