Coombs is the second suburb in the new Molonglo Valley development, located minutes’ drive from Weston Creek and bordering the Molonglo forest.
Since the first land release back in 2013, the suburb has seen a flurry of activity with houses, townhouses and apartments popping up everywhere. Coombs is home to the first school in Molonglo (Charles Weston Primary School), and a local shopping centre and community centre are now under construction.
Given Coombs’s proximity to the city (just 12km) and sweeping views of the Brindabella mountains, Telstra Tower, the Arboretum, Molonglo forest and Parliament House, new homes in the area are fetching record-breaking prices. Single residential homes have sold for over $1.6 million, and rental properties are reaching $900 p/week for a 4 bedroom home.
With Wright (the first suburb in Molonglo, opposite Coombs) housing most of the apartments in the area, Coombs has become the new go-to suburb for townhouse-living. With hundreds of townhouses already complete and more scheduled for development, young professionals, small families and retirees are converging by the truckload to take advantage of the suburb’s amenities, location and friendly community.
Jaime Farrelly, Director of 3 Property Group, says “We’ve had an influx of enquiries from people ready to secure townhouses in our Opus development right off the plan. The area is incredibly sought after, and we are excited to have the opportunity to build there.
The suburb itself embodies everything we love about development, especially in terms of achieving simplicity and beauty. We have a real passion for using new technologies and sustainable building practices to help us achieve that, with the ultimate goal being to make a home buyer’s life easier and more enjoyable. For example, 3 Property Group are the exclusive providers of 3PUSH Home Automation. This amazing system basically incorporates all of the technology in your home, so you can manage everything from opening your curtains to turning on lights, changing the temperature, and playing music from the push of a single button.”
