A SUCCESSFUL sellout of stage one in just eight weeks has prompted the early release of the final stage of the up-market The Tilbury residential development at Coomera.The $30 million 69-townhome project is being developed by Gold Coast-based Bos Property Group.Project director Steve Harrison attributed The Tilbury’s early success to the elevated nature of the site at 39 Old Coach Rd, plus a stunning recreation club and lap pool overlooking the Gold Coast.“There are very few remaining sites in the growth corridor between Nerang and Ormeau that offer skyline views of the Gold Coast,” he said. “The townhomes are also very reasonably priced from $389,400 and feature quality finishes.” Bos Property Group project has Gold Coast skyline views.More from news02:37Purchasers snap up every residence in the $40 million Siarn Palm Beach North9 hours ago02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa1 day agoAll designs have three bedrooms, some with an additional study, and there are two and three-bathroom configurations with a split-level option.Mr Harrison said the majority of buyers were local owner-occupiers but the project had also drawn interest from Sydney and southeast Queensland investors.“When Bos Property Group bought the site in 2011 it had DA approval for 144 retirement units,” he said. “But the group decided to build less than half this amount on up-market townhomes that would all have expansive views of the Gold Coast.” The Tilbury features an 18m resort pool, club lounge, barbecue, entertainment areas and landscaped gardens.It is close to Coomera Marine Precinct, the $1 billion Coomera Town Centre project, M1 Motorway, Coomera train station and the $50 million Coomera Square. Completion is expected in July.
