For us it was love at first sight.

The magical view across a valley of rolling green hills encompassing pastures and virgin forest was what caught our eye. Getting out the car having driven straight from Brisbane, the fragrant and cooler air had an immediate relaxing effect.

The architecture of the cabins has a lightness about it that sees them sit elegantly on The Ridge. The simple, understated and very comfortable styling inside the cabins keeps the focus on the view and is perfect for a break away from the busyness of daily life.

Our decision to buy into The Ridge was easy to make, for all the above reasons. On our first visit to The Ridge we met Magnus and John and have been very comfortable dealing with them both. Their love and commitment to the land is obvious and heartening. With both of them maintaining an interest in the property into the future we are confident the development will be well managed and the land well cared for. Being part of a small community of people, including Magnus and John, who also enjoy the idea of a rural escape is something we are looking forward to.

My wife and I have recently purchased a luxury cabin at The Ridge At Maleny. We had been searching for several months and as we wanted to use the property as a holiday home and not solely as an investment property we were looking for something special. What we found was something very special, something that more than addressed our criteria. The marketing pictures and description of the the development are very impressive but they do not do justice to experiencing it first hand. The tranquility of the location and the breathtaking unobstructed views over hundreds of acres of lush green hinterland is simply beautiful. My wife and I new that we had found the perfect location for our holiday home.

When Magnus and Amanda welcomed us inside of the display cabin we were that impressed that we asked if it was for sale. Unfortunately but not surprisingly it had already been sold. We were only disappointed until we learned that we could purchase a package of identical fixtures, fittings and equipment, which we have done. The Scandinavian boutique nature of the fourteen cabins is reflected in their design for functionality, flexibility and beauty. Whilst our intention is to use our luxury cabin as a holiday home and a retreat from urban living in Brisbane, the quality of the cabins and their amazing situation will attract high rental returns as an investment property.

Indeed one can have the best of both worlds and enjoy time there yourself or let the property out. There will be an on site manager who could act as your letting agent undertaking the full role as a letting agent with the benefit of living on site.

Maleny is situated in a beautiful part of Queensland within a short drive to many amenities and tourist attractions.

We have found our dream holiday home and as there are only fourteen cabins in the development if you are looking for a fantastic holiday home or an investment property or indeed both then we highly recommend that you contact Magnus who will be pleased to show you what the development The Ridge At Maleny has to offer.

You will not be disappointed.

Their enthusiasm, vision & tenacity is unwavering

Hassle-free Lifestyle Investments in a Limited Maleny Market

As Australian capital cities experience over-supply of investment properties, savvy investors looking for something more unique with a high return and lifestyle opportunity are beginning to look to the countryside for their next purchase.

One location that has piqued the interest of investors from across the country is Maleny in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

Maleny has long been a coveted destination for the weekend escape and mini-vacations of Queenslanders due to its unique and beautiful natural environment and fresh mountain air.  A close proximity to the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane CBD have ensured that Maleny has surged as part the economically stable and growing pocket of South-East Queensland.

RP Data reports that Maleny’s median house price in the area has been steadily increasing since September 2016 where it currently sits at $547,500. Increasing population growth and recent multimillion dollar property sales further reinforce the strengthening market in the area and how important it is to choose the right development when making an investment decision.

Magnus Olson, Director at new luxury Maleny property, The Ridge at Maleny highlights that “…as a rule, opportunities to invest in Maleny tend to be either a rental property that you can’t use OR a weekender that you get no income from and spend most of your time maintaining and cleaning the property. The Ridge at Maleny offers investors an exciting new alternative – the best of both worlds: potential for hassle-free rental income and the opportunity for personal use.”

“The Ridge at Maleny luxury cabins have freehold title and are designed to be a hassle-free investment with the opportunity for rental cash return, potential for good capital growth and the added bonus of personal use – making it one of the best opportunities currently available in the area.  ”

“This project strikes a perfect balance between luxury development and importantly the conservation of the pristine and vast environment. With rare Council approval, the 14 luxury cabins are constructed on the highest point just west of Maleny on 300 acres giving spectacular views north to the Connondale Ranges and south to the Glasshouse Mountains.”

“The usual ‘common property’ foyer, grounds and limited gardens is replaced in this development by 300 acres of freehold land that runs from the grassy high ridge, down through a pristine wet sclerophyll forest and to the banks of the Mary River. With an onsite manager, all property maintenance is catered for so on arrival you can simply settle in, relax and enjoy the views or explore the 300 acres of pristine wilderness. “

The Ridge at Maleny is a perfect example of what investors should be looking for in a property.

As a boutique operation, there are only 14 luxury cabins available and unprecedented interest in the location has been already been seen with several sold to-date.
