Affordability and lifestyle will be two major factors drawing homebuyers to Woodford, where Double R Group is preparing to turn the first sod on its latest land release.

Insite Realty Sales Consultant Peter Kinchin said the small town, which was 68km from Maroochydore, 73km from Brisbane and 25km from Caboolture, was an attractive location for homebuyers.

Land prices start from $259,000, with block sizes from 600 square metres.

“Woodford offers a country lifestyle that appeals to buyers looking for a tree-change and Hamilton Place’s average block size appeal is perfect for low maintenance living without the feeling like your neighbour is living in your back pocket, all while being connected to the major hubs of the region,” he said.

“Civil construction works will start in late July and Hamilton Place will be the first new home estate in Woodford where buyers can build on traditional allotments, so we are expecting a high demand and anticipating most of the enquiry will be from owner-occupiers. 

“You just need to take a drive down the main street on a Saturday to see the township humming with activity and you’ll be sold. Woodford is fast becoming its very own destination.”

Hamilton Place developer and Double R Group Director Ken Reed said the land release was only 800m from the local school and close to local shops, while still being nestled between the towering gum trees surrounding Woodford.

“When we heard about this parcel of land, we knew it would offer an amazing opportunity for buyers who might be looking for a change of pace, an escape from their city jobs, or who simply love Woodford and its quaint town,” Mr Reed said.

“The site backs onto the P-10 Woodford State School so it’s perfect for families or those looking to downsize from larger rural properties.”

“We’ll be releasing 45 blocks from 600sqm over two stages so there is limited supply in this small enclave at the end of Hamilton Road.

“Woodford has a rich history in dairy and timber cutting and is well-known for the annual Woodford Folk Festival which draws loyal tourists to the region from across Australia.

“With a population of 3500, the town offers a quiet lifestyle with easy access to the metro hubs of Caboolture and Brisbane via the D’Aguilar Highway, delivering an affordable and enviable lifestyle that we can’t wait to share.”

Moreton Bay is one of the fastest growing regions in the country and it has been identified in the top 10 best-buy regions in Australia, according to Hotspotting by Terry Ryder, with most suburbs median house prices below $500,000.

“Moreton Bay Regional Council recently launched its Regional Economic Development Strategy, where it plans to build the economy to $40 billion by 2041,” Mr Kinchin said.

“So with a focus on investment opportunities and jobs in this region in years to come, the demand for quality housing will no doubt escalate too.”
