Queensland-based developer Sherpa Investments has released the second stage of Scenic Ridge at Bilambil Heights to the market. The anticipated land development, aptly named The Retreats, consists of just nine premium hinterland estates ranging in size from 4155m2 and 5.37ha, each with coastal and hinterland views.

The exclusive release comes off the back of the sellout success of stage one of the development which hit the market in December 2018 with 35 residential lots. 

Sherpa Investments director Christie Leet said he was originally attracted to the site because of its prime location, which not only had stunning views but unparalleled connectivity to local infrastructure and amenities.

“The Scenic Ridge property is truly spectacular, boasting an elevated northerly aspect with picturesque views across Tweed and Coolangatta, giving residents a tranquil setting to create the lifestyle of their dreams,” said Mr Leet.

“Offering the luxury of privacy and space, this collection of estates is positioned perfectly for relaxation and tranquility enabling residents to create their own personal retreat experience which they can escape to every day. We are excited to launch The Retreats as a truly unique and exclusive opportunity with just nine private lots fully serviced by city amenities and lush green views that will never be built out.”

The generous estates are surrounded by evergreen hinterland on one side and the aqua blue of Charles Bay, Terranora Creek, and Coolangatta Beach on the other.  The elevated location gives residents the feeling of living ‘off the grid’ yet the convenience of being connected to local infrastructure. 

Mr Leet said the opportunity to secure serviced acreage in Northern New South Wales is a rarity.

“The Retreats offers buyers the idyllic and tranquil surrounds of the Tweed Range Hinterland with subtropical surrounds, space to roam, yet with close proximity to the abundance of services the Tweed provides,” said Mr Leet. “Bilambil Heights offers a ‘green’ lifestyle and stunning views, all just a ten-minute drive from some of the Gold Coast’s most famous beaches, and 15 minutes from the international airport.”

Located overlooking the pristine valley below, Scenic Ridge sales agent Sandi Webber said The Retreats had seen plenty of sales interest already with astute buyers aware of the limited lots available.

“The Retreats has sparked plenty of interest from a range of buyers including families, downsizers, and Gold Coast locals who want to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secure a piece of prime land in a peaceful, family-friendly community,” said Ms Webber. “Scenic Ridge is an ideal address for residents seeking space and the freedom of choice in a locale that continues to grow in value.”

Settlements are expected to be completed by March 2020.
