ISLE – Wellington Point’s newest development sees demand from downsizing families - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views
Real Estate


A collection of six single-level homes ranging in size from three to four bedrooms have been designed with the downsizer in mind by Brisbane-based developers Urban Solace and Ironbark Property Partners.

Nestled within immediate walking distance to the Main Road precinct, train station and local walkways, this project has caught the eye of downsizers seeking low-maintenance living without the stairs and body corporate.

“We saw an opportunity and made a conscious decision to move away from what could have been developed (townhouses) and pack more into fewer dwellings, ensuring all homes were lowset to suit buyers increasingly wanting that style of living,” explained Urban Solace Director Damian McIntosh.

“We saw a gap in the market for well-appointed, low maintenance, lowset homes and tried to do our best with the product. We did this by reducing the number of homes permitted on the site whilst maximising the site’s unique characteristics – namely, north-facing outdoor entertaining areas.”

With two expansive four-bedroom, dual-living family homes to bookend the project, the development offers buyers unique lifestyle opportunities previously undeveloped in the bayside.

In the heart of this private community are four single-level, three-bedroom duplexes designed specifically for the discerning downsizer looking for all of the lifestyle benefits of a unit or townhouse but still wanting an independent location to call home.

All design elements have been carefully considered to emphasise the benefits of living by the bay. Lofty 2.7-metre ceilings and oversized windows are designed to catch the bayside breezes (effectively rendering air-conditioning unnecessary) while allowing light to flood living spaces.

“Our enquiry to date has been primarily from local residents seeking unit living alternatives, or families whose children have flown the coop and are looking to stay local, but without the stairs and yard,” says Director of Ironbark Property Partners Mitchell Willett.

“This group of enquiry has by far exceeded any other group of interested parties. However, we still had good enquiries from interstate movers and broader south-east Queensland residents.”

The project is due for completion in February 2024 and is currently being built by Brisbane-based builder Modcon Homes, with just four homes remaining on the market.
