Ready-built townhomes prove popular with downsizers

first_img ANISE MORE QUEENSLAND REAL ESTATE NEWS: Developer: AV Jennings Price: Second stage of townhouses, including two and three-bedroom designs, ranging from $459,000 to $579,900. Location: Anise is at 461 Beckett Rd, Bridgeman Downs Luxury car seller pockets $4M Where have all the sellers gone?center_img Anise has a range of completed designs and a range of floorplans for buyers to choose from, including the popular Liquorice design, which features three bedrooms with an additional lounge area.Ally and Kevin Royce, who have moved to Anise after living at The Gap for 31 years, said the decision to downsize was not easy, but they welcomed the opportunity to recreate their life personally and financially.“Finding ourselves empty-nesters, we started to consider downsizing. Too much of our precious spare time was being spent maintaining a large home and a pool that was infrequently used,” Mrs Royce said.“We had driven past Anise and were drawn to the interesting architectural style of the homes, and its prime location. We believe Anise represents good value for money.“We fell in love with the Fennel design. It was very clever and functional with a ground floor master bedroom, and it was not too much of a downsize, with adequate space to accommodate and entertain family and friends.“We wanted minimal maintenance and our new home is well designed for that. We love to travel, and this home truly affords us a ‘lock-up and go’ lifestyle.”Mrs Royce said when they were at home, there was still the pleasure of swimming in the pool and visiting the community garden filled with plants including rosemary, mint and lavender, or relaxing in the park.AVJennings national development manager Angus Johnson said delivering spec builds had helped create more opportunities for different buyer types.“We have found buyers at either end of the spectrum – first home buyers and downsizers – really appreciate the opportunity to be able to inspect a new home before purchasing, or at least see it is coming out of the ground,” Mr Johnson said.“It gives them confidence the home they are buying matches its value and helps them picture themselves living in the space.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus9 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market9 hours ago“It’s still quite rare to have a spec-built home in a community, complete with resident amenities, so people can see they are not just buying a home, but a lifestyle.“For first time buyers, it means they can take advantage of the government grants associated with purchasing a new home and, for downsizers, it means they can move in much sooner than they would be able to if they were taking charge of the building process.”Sales at Anise have prompted the release of the second stage of townhouses, including two and three-bedroom designs, ranging from $459,000 to $579,900. Ally and Kevin Royce have moved to Anise after living at The Gap for 31 years.Ready-built townhouses have proven popular with downsizers seeking more certainty when buying a new home, with sales soaring at AVJennings’ Anise community in Bridgeman Downs after the completion of the first stage. ‘James Bond’ house sells to celebslast_img read more

Wisconsin hosts North Dakota in WCHA opener

first_imgA sense of excitement lies among the Wisconsin women’s hockey team as it prepares to face North Dakota in their WCHA season opener.The top-ranked Badgers (2-0-0) look to continue their 29-game winning streak this weekend as they take the ice for the first time at the Kohl Center Saturday afternoon. While the Badgers remain confident in their abilities, they are not overlooking the competition they will face.“They have a good hockey club, they get wins and are scoring threats,” head coach Mark Johnson said. “They are excited for their season just because of the personnel they have, so there are a lot of things they can be threats to.”North Dakota, ranked sixth nationally, is looking to have a successful season this year with the core from last year’s team still remaining. The addition of several European players to the Sioux makes them an unknown threat to the Badgers.“They are a very talented team offensively. … This year they got a few European girls, so they are definitely going to come out strong,” junior defenseman Stef McKeough said. “But I think we have a really strong [defensive] core and a lot of our forwards coming in to support us, so I think we be able to handle it.”Wisconsin started out strong in its opening series last weekend against Lindenwood, defeating the Lady Lions 24-0 in the two-game series.Offensively, the Badgers are looking to add to their goals total this weekend. While scoring does not appear to be an immediate problem for UW, the expectations still remain high.“Coach [Johnson] wants a full game from us,” senior forward Brooke Ammerman said. “If we keep our work ethic up, we should be successful.”The Badgers are excited to begin their league play with a competitive game and are aiming to emerge victorious.“Everyone is really excited,” McKeough said. “We just had a weekend off after playing Lindenwood the first weekend. We have been pumped up for like two weeks now to play this team, so I think we will come out strong.”While victory is the ultimate goal, the team still focuses on working together and improving collectively. At practice, UW has been working within their lines to solidify their confidence in one another.“At this time in the season, I think most teams are concerned with how they are playing,” coach Johnson said. “I have liked what I have seen up to this point, and now its time to get [the freshmen’s] feet a little wet against league competition.”In order to continue UW’s reign of success, emphasis on developing freshman is key. Getting the new players accustomed to the team and the pressure on the ice is something Johnson and his staff prioritize.“It will definitely be a test to see how they play against a WCHA opponent, but we believe in them and we see them improving every single day in practice,” McKeough said.Johnson hopes to give the freshman plenty of playing time in this weekend’s games. The contribution from underclassmen is key to a successful season, and after a week of preparation, the team would like to see it show Saturday.“I think we are ready,” Johnson said. “We have had a couple good weeks of practice, the group is energetic and we are looking forward to league games.”last_img read more

Ogunbote: Our Game Plan against Rangers Paid off

first_imgFred EdorehHandler of Shooting Stars, Gbenga Ogunbote, is a happy man at the moment. He is happy because his game plan to attack NPFL leader, Enugu Rangers paid off last Saturday to pick all the three points at stake in the Match-day 35 clash at the Lekan Salami Stadium in Ibadan.He insisted shortly after the 2-1 win that the high tempo of the game was expected given that the Flying Antelopes came to Ibadan in search of an away win or draw to shore up their hope for the crown while Shooting was also in desperate need for a win to steer away from relegation. “The tempo of the game was expected. These are two traditional teams with huge pride to stake and the confrontation became keener as Rangers want to consolidate while Shooting is fighting to avoid the drop.“We planned to attack and it could be seen that they also planned to attack. We were lucky to have converted our chances when they came and you could see that they fought harder towards the end of the game.”Two quick goals in the second half of the game rebuffed Rangers charge to snatch a possible away point to consolidate on their lead.It was a high stake, arguably, ill-tempered match which produced a red card for each side and four yellow cards, Shooting did all the probing but Rangers stood sturdy in defence with Okey Odita making important clearances for the visitors to keep scores even in the first half.The Ibadan boys promptly unlocked Rangers defence early at the resumption of play with Ajani Ibrahim jabbing in from a goal mouth situation resulting from a corner kick in 47th minute.They kept on the pedal and pressured the Rangers to concede a penalty four minutes later and Ifegwu Ojukwu shot it in to keep the hosts two goals up while the offender and captain of Rangers, Chibuzor Madu was sent off.Even with one man down, Rangers charged back at the hosts forcing them into frantic defence and a blunder which earned Moses James a red card to leave both sides with ten men apiece.Rangers doggedness paid off in the 81st minute as Chisom Egbuchulam pulled one back with a low stretcher that left Emma Fabiyi in goal for Shooting no chance for any heroics. But it came too late to earn the Enugu team any chance to salvage a point from the road trip to the Oyo State capital.RESULTSRivers Utd 3-1 W’WolvesShooting 2-1 RangersIfeanyiUbah 2-0 Akwa UtdTornadoes 1-0 EnyimbaNasarawa 2-1 WikkiSunshine 3-1 PlateauIkorodu 4-1 PillarsMFM FC 3-1 LobiTABLETeam P W D L GF GA GD PtsRivers Utd 33 18 2 13 36 27 9 56Rangers 33 15 9 9 45 36 9 54Ifeanyiubah 33 15 8 10 35 30 5 53Wikki 33 14 9 10 42 27 15 51Sunshine 33 13 11 9 43 33 10 50Lobi Stars 34 14 7 13 37 34 3 49Enyimba 32 14 7 11 31 28 3 49Nasarawa 33 16 1 16 38 37 1 49Pillars 33 14 6 13 45 38 7 48Akwa Utd 34 13 7 14 42 42 0 46Tornadoes 33 14 3 16 36 38 -2 45El-Kanemi 32 14 3 15 35 37 -2 45Plateau Utd 33 12 9 12 31 34 -3 453SC 33 13 5 15 39 45 -6 44MFM FC 33 11 8 14 34 37 -3 41Wolves 33 10 9 14 26 36 -10 39Abia Warriors 32 9 11 12 28 36 -8 38Heartland 32 9 10 13 21 28 -7 37Ikorodu Utd 32 6 11 15 28 49 -21 29Giwa FC 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Memphis Depay: Don’t compare me to Cristiano Ronaldo

first_imgManchester United manager Louis van Gaal rates Memphis Depay as one of the biggest talents of his age but the forward was keen to play down comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo.Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal rates Memphis Depay as one of the biggest talents of his age but the forward was keen to play down comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo.The 21-year-old Holland international is the club’s first signing of the summer – although Torino full-back Matteo Darmian is likely to be next through the door after flying in for a medical – and at £31million did not come cheap.He scored 25 goals for PSV Eindhoven last season, although Van Gaal played him as a winger when he was in charge of the national team and plans to utilise him in a number of possible roles for the Red Devils. However, he has no doubt about the youngster’s quality. “I think he is one of the few highly-talented boys of his age and you can hear he is full of confidence,” said the manager.However, when it was suggested to the player he had already been compared with a former United favourite, Cristiano Ronaldo, the player distanced himself from that.”That is the best player in the world. I don’t want to talk too much. I want to show it on the pitch,” he said.”I am still young. I played two seasons for PSV. I want to let my feet speak. I don’t want to compare myself with somebody like that.”But asked whether he thought he could reproduce his scintillating form in front of goal in England, he added: “I think so. I believe I will work on it and I am excited to do my job for Manchester United and to score goals. I am a striker – I have to score goals and get assists.”Van Gaal sounded a word of caution after watching the likes of British record signing Angel di Maria, an experienced Argentina international and regular for Real Madrid, struggle in his first Premier League season.”He shall notice that it is not so easy in the Premier League,” said the veteran Dutchman.”It is a big difference from the Dutch league: always pressure on the ball and physical resistance is high so it is not so easy.” “I have said that but he is full of confidence so he shall say what he is feeling but I know it is not easy. Players like Marcos Rojo, Angel Di Maria and Daley Blind had problems.”Depay played under Louis van Gaal when the Dutch manager was in charge of the national side leading Les Oranjes to win bronze at the World Cup in Brazil–last_img read more
