Bronette and Darren
After stumbling across The Village by chance, Bronette & Darren couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
Bronette and her husband moved from Perth to Townsville in 2016 and stopped at a coffee shop near The Village for a break, while house-hunting in the neighbouring Idalia estate. When they saw The Village signs, they popped in for a look and were surprised at the diversity the estate offered. Their initial thoughts that it was only for first-home buyers and investors quickly changed to "Wow, this is really ticking all of our boxes and then some."
They hadn’t originally planned on building but once they saw the quality of homes and the amazing view from the river front lots combined with the proximity to the city and the major arterial routes, they jumped at the chance.
"The fact that we could get a river front block that we could afford was incredible. We built a house with the living areas situated at the back of the house, to take full advantage of the river views looking across to the golf course and out to Mt Stuart and Hervey's Range.
"Where we live is really special.
"The Village has a lovely, growing community with a mixture of couples and families. Everyone is so friendly.
"The lifestyle is also great with lots of walking and cycling paths as well as amazing wildlife. The ever changing view of the Ross River can be captivating as the tide ebbs and flows and the sunsets are beautiful.
"The city heart is a 5 minute drive and the Strand is only 10 (less than 20 minutes by bicycle) and the new Cowboys Stadium and Ross Creek development will be in walking distance.
"We love our life and our home in The Village."
