Affordable family living close to town

JUST a short 20-minute drive south of Cairns you will find the fastest growing residential estate in Cairns. Mount Peter Estate, nestled against the foothills of the Mount Peter Conservation Park, with easy access from Edmonton as Mount Peter Estate has established itself as the affordable dream for young families in Cairns.

Saturday September 18, Mount Peter Estate will open their collective doors, allowing prospective homeowners the opportunity to explore, discover and experience the Mount Peter Difference.

A master-planned estate with mountain views all around, offering unparalleled lifestyle, affordability, and services. Residents enjoy a unique community feel set around the central hub, the Mamu Link Park.

The Park is generous green space, beautifully maintained by Kenfrost Homes with children’s playground, half-court basketball court as well as exercise stations and lush open space, big enough for neighbourhood ball games or family get togethers.

Local residents Sophie and Nick along with their children Lincoln and Ivy made the move four years ago when they built their dream home through Kenfrost Homes.

“Mount Peter was just what we were looking for. It’s modern, young, and fresh, and we love the community feel.

“We are away from the rat-race but surrounded by everything we need as a family.

“There’s choices when it comes to grocery shopping as well, plus we now have Mackillop Catholic College as an option for our children.

“We could not find a better place to live,” Sophie said.

Mount Peter Estate has been recognised at the 2020 Urban Design Institute of Australia, winning the coveted CEO’s Award for Excellence in design and planning.

Adam Gowlett from Kenfrost Homes noted the company’s desire to create a vibrant community, large enough to support the education and retail infrastructure yet small enough to maintain the friendly neighbourhood feel.

“When completed this estate will be home to around 1000 families, with several lush community green spaces and a shopping, retail hub that will build and enhance the community feel,” he said.

The Mount Peter Estate Open Day will be held this Saturday afternoon, September 18 from 3.00pm – 6:30pm. There will be display homes to view, one which is currently listed at $450,000 for a 4x2 with all the Kenfrost Homes standard inclusions like 600x600 porcelain tiles and stone benchtops in the kitchen. Visitors to Mount Peter Estate will also be able to tour Mackillop Catholic College and the Mount Peter Early Learning Centre.

For prospective residents wanting to build their new home, Kenfrost Homes have 8 of their 16 planned ‘speculative’ homes currently under construction due for completion early 2022.

These ‘spec’ homes offer prospective purchasers an earlier move-in date as opposed to custom builds, as much of the planning and initial works have been completed and they have progressed in the build stage.

Interested families are invited to register their interest in one of these ‘spec’ homes or one of similar size and characteristics that checks the boxes for them. There’s a choice in 3 and 4-bedroom homes, complete with 2 bathrooms, landscaped and finished to ‘turn-key’ standard. Just book the removal truck and move into your new quality Kenfrost Home from one of Cairns’ leading and most awarded builders, in an award-winning estate.

The Open Day is happening Saturday, September 18 from 3pm, come in and explore the estate, then enjoy the park with a free bouncy castle and fun activities for the kids, a free sausage sizzle, guest appearances from the Cairns Taipans and the Northern Pride players plus a few surprises along
the way.
