BOUTIQUE housing & apartment specialist Mosaic Property Group is poised to create an urban utopia in Brisbane’s leafy north-west with the launch of the Highbury community at Upper Kedron.

Set in a green pocket at the foot of the picturesque D’aguilar Range, Highbury will comprise a collection of 26 exclusive homes on blocks ranging in size from 450sqm to 2700sqm just 12km from the CBD.

Each of the four-bedroom contemporary residences will overlook a preserved wildlife corridor while many of the properties will incorporate a bushland eco corridor that is protected by strict covenants.

Mosaic Property Group managing director Brook Monahan said Highbury responded to Upper Kedron’s evolution from a prestigious acreage area into a leafy urban residential location that is benefiting from major infrastructure upgrades in Brisbane’s west.

“Million-dollar mansions on acreage blocks were once the only options on offer, making this area out of reach for most buyers,” Mr Monahan said.

“However, the suburb is now transitioning into a leafy urban area with a selection of lot sizes to suit purchasers at all stages of life.”

“There is a strong community spirit, with residents who are passionate about preserving the area’s village lifestyle while allowing careful development to provide more housing choices.”

“Highbury respects this spirit while epitomising all that is desirable urban living; a safe, secure and social community with the perfect blend of convenience and lifestyle opportunities offered by an outstanding location.”

Set to take shape in Highbury Place, the community’s residences will feature 24 architecturally designed one and two-storey configurations and ranging in size from 201sqm to 227sqm.

Mr Monahan said Highbury’s luxuriously appointed yet functional open-plan homes would complement an array of lifestyles, from downsizers through to growing families.

“These residences will meet the needs of a range of purchasers, from retirees and empty-nesters who want a home and backyard without the time-consuming maintenance, to families who want room for the dog to run and the kids to play,” he said.

“Residents will be close to bushland that will never be built-out and will overlook a protected wildlife enclave, providing a green and tranquil outlook.”

“This will be a leafy, urban utopia just 12km from the hustle, bustle and bright lights of the CBD.”

Highbury’s residents will have an easy 20-minute commute to the CBD and be just minutes from Ferny Grove Shopping Village, primary and high schools, Ferny Grove Train Station, medical centres, bus stops and recreational amenities.

Each Highbury home design reflects thoughtful and innovative planning with versatile spaces centred on open-plan living along with superb kitchens, luxurious bathrooms and generous storage space.

Guided by sustainable design principles, the residences feature expansive windows and flowing indoor-outdoor layouts to ensure optimal natural light and ventilation while embracing the sub-tropical lifestyle with generous outdoor entertainment areas.

Highbury’s fully turn-key homes will range in price from $676,500 to $819,000 and high quality finishes such as 900mm kitchen appliances and stone benchtops as standard.

Construction is scheduled to begin at Highbury in early 2018.
