Six Mile Creek Estate is ten-stage master-planned estate in Collingwood Park. With the development well underway (given that the first four stages have been completed), Six Mile Creek Estate is a growing development. Land lots range in size from 400 to 1,342 sqm, and the location of the estate means that most lots are quite flat, although some are more elevated.
Six Mile Creek Estate residents will also have access to over 19 hectares of bushland, parkland and bike tracks throughout the estate. This includes the $2,000,000 being put into the park, bike, BBQ and sporting facilities. With the growing focus on living a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle, delivering spaces where people can do this is a major plus in the estate’s favour.
Six Mile Creek Estate has been divided into 10 stages, four of which have been completed. The continuously-growing estate — expected to be completed in 2023 — is positioned in a quieter area of Collingwood Park, whilst still enjoying easy access to the hubs in Collingwood Park, Ipswich and Brisbane.
The size of the estate works to its advantage, as it’s both large enough for residents to feel like they have their own space, but small enough for a tight-knit community to form. The dedicated green spaces throughout the estate will help to foster this, as they give people a place to catch up, and places to relax by themselves. With the emphasis on healthy living, it’s an aspect of the estate that residents will definitely be taking advantage of.
There are a large number of lot sizes and house designs available, with more still being released as new stages begin selling. In total, there will be 700 land lots released, and 170 new townhouses for sale. This creates a multitude of options for buyers, and quite a few of the house builders do offer some degree of customisation in their house designs, further allowing each home to be unique.
