In a great coup for Townsville, the Harris Crossing display village features the largest installaTownville newest development, Harris Crossing is not only the launch pad of a pioneering energy-saving initiative that will save homeowners thousands in energy costs, it’s also set to become the stage for the world’s hottest outdoor activity that will soon set Townsville soaring.“The plan for Harris Crossing was to create something new and unique, yet cater for all lifestyles and budgets,” said Nick Ryle, sales and marketing manager of Maidment Development Group, the creators behind Harris Crossing.“We have a variety of home sites from low maintenance 300sq m courtyard lots right up to sprawling 1000sq m lifestyle lots overlooking parkland and the landscaped banks of the Bohle River.“Willows Shopping Centre is only three minutes away, Riverway Lagoons and Arts Centre are only four minutes away, schools and childcare facilities are within easy walking distance. Or if you just want to pick up a fishing rod and throw a line in one of the freshwater fishing holes along the Bohle, it’s right at your doorstep.”Award-winning builder Martin Locke — whose Isaac 303 display home at Harris Crossing boasts his latest accessible living designs in a four-bedroom luxury home — believes that Harris Crossing is the perfect place to put down roots and enjoy everything this dynamic new community has to offer.“People are going to love the location of Harris Crossing. It’s so easy to get to anywhere in Townsville, plus there’s a real ‘family feel’ to the place,” said Martin.“I live just across the river, so I know and believe in the area. People moving into this estate are long-term family homeowners. They really want to make it their home, which is one of the main reasons we’ve invested so heavily in our latest display home.”Martin Locke’s Isaac 303 display home features a stunning, fully-accessible swimming pool with ramped entry and infinity edge for complete ease of access.It’s the kind of forward-thinking, state-of-the-art design that has become representative of the quality of homes being built at Harris Crossing.More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020“There are a lot of new, exciting ideas coming out of Harris Crossing, including what’s planned along the Bohle River. The parks and the introduction of Disc Golf are going to make the estate a real standout.”Disc Golf is, in a nutshell, the same concept as golf, but instead of hitting a ball players toss a frisbee-like disc along an 18-hole course with the goal of getting a hole-in-one in a metal basket.“It’s family-friendly, loads of fun and a great way to get big kids and little kids active and outdoors,” said Nick. “It’s going to take Townsville by storm.”Then there’s Maidment Development Group’s leading edge initiative to give homeowners the option to install an energy-saving Tesla Powerwall 2 in their new home at a fraction of the normal retail price.The Tesla Powerwall allows homeowners to generate, store and manage their own solar energy, day or night, slashing energy bills and giving residents of Harris Crossing a truly energy-independent lifestyle.“Just as builders should be looking to continually raise the bar, so should developers with their offerings,” said Martin Locke.“It goes without saying that energy costs are a massive issue right now, so to have a developer that has done something proactive about addressing this issue — by way of partnering with Tesla battery storage for those moving into Harris Crossing — is definitely a game-changer.”To see the range of display homes open at Harris Crossing or to find out more about Harris Crossing, Disc Golf or Maidment Development Group’s Tesla Powerwall offer, you can find Harris Crossing just off Hervey Range Road at Bohle Plains.
