I passed by these houses today, on view for sale. Three in a single development, gated community.
The gate was open. None of the houses is occupied. There was a silver merc parked below one of them, and I'm not sure but through the wall of glass you could just make out the EA tossing one off in an exclusive, "resin-floored" bathroom.
The view over the bay is beautiful, but the neighbourhood is a bit meh - nice waterside park with the odd hawthorn bush, which shows recent change from farmland. But drab suburban paving and roads. Plenty of 70s style three bed houses - maybe one in three - while the rest are recent builds with glass balconies and geometric designs in expensive materials. But the expensive stuff still has to fit into the 70s size plot and it's all a bit squeezed.
No doubt these are wonderful houses, but the location is so ordinary you expect to turn the corner and walk into a chip shop. Oh wait, that's been demolished and replaced with an unsold mansion.
