Brookwater's 500th family
September 6, 2011
Five hundred families have built their dream home in Brookwater over the past ten years, with the Harris family the latest edition to the premier golf community.
Julian and Kirsty Harris decided to build at Brookwater after falling for the area's beautiful surroundings and welcoming community.
"As soon as we drove in we knew this is where we wanted to live," Mrs Harris said. "We just love it here," she said.
The Harris family now lives in Brookwater's The Classic precinct with their two young daughters - Olivia, 6, and Jessica, 4 - after moving into their new home just two weeks ago.
Mr and Mrs Harris, who moved to Australia from England in 2008, said the Brookwater lifestyle was like nothing else.
"Brookwater has a really lovely community feeling - there's such a wonderful mix of people that live here," Mrs Harris said.
"Every time we drive in we just feel so happy to be home.
"We absolutely love it here - there's no other place we'd rather live."
The Harris' milestone move comes just weeks before Brookwater's tenth anniversary, being celebrated at the premier golf community during September.
Brookwater deputy managing director Raynuha Sinnathamby said she was thrilled to be welcoming their 500th new family home amidst Brookwater's tenth birthday celebrations.
"We are really excited to have reached such a significant milestone all while celebrating our tenth anniversary," Ms Sinnathamby said.
Ms Sinnathamby said Brookwater had come a long way since its inception in 2001, with the community's famous ‘Brookwater lifestyle' continuing to attract families from all over south-east Queensland.
"Brookwater is a world-class golf residential community built around the award-winning Greg Norman-designed golf course," Ms Sinnathamby said.
"With access to high-quality community facilities including the award-winning Brookwater Golf and Country Club, it is no wonder more and more families are looking to build their dream home here at Brookwater," she said.
Ms Sinnathamby said residents are set to benefit from a range of new services and infrastructure in the area, including the Brookwater Retail Village, the Springfield rail line and the expansion of Orion Town Centre, which are all contributing to the overall growth of the area.
"While the overall liveability of the area is what initially attracts families to Brookwater, it is these key infrastructure developments in and around Greater Springfield which is really securing the area as a solid investment for years to come," Ms Sinnathamby said.
Brookwater is a premier golf residential community built around the Greg Norman-designed Golf Course and is part of Springfield Land Corporation's Greater Springfield. Brookwater will celebrate their tenth anniversary in September, 2011.
