Priy and Shaniya Jayasuriya, and their four children, are among the residents who call Tennyson Reach, situated on the Brisbane River eight kilometres from the CBD, home.
The couple purchased an apartment as an investment off-the-plan, but with their eldest children playing tennis up to five days a week at the neighbouring Queensland Tennis Centre, decided to make the move to the community permanently.
With the apartment sizes rivalling the space of a traditional home, the family found it a seamless transition making the move from a five bedroom home at Graceville to their three bedroom apartment at Tennyson Reach last year.
"We found the transition into our new apartment has been really easy. The children love having the Ken Fletcher parkland and bike paths right at the doorstep. It has made being in an apartment really liveable for them and we really enjoy all the facilities readily available to us," said Mr Jayasuriya.
"The gardens are beautifully manicured, the pools are great and the fact there is a gym that is top notch just tops it off."
Mr Jayasuriya said the apartment had been so popular that the children's grandparents, Mr and Mrs De Silva, and aunty had also now purchased in the community.
Mr De Silva said the lifestyle on offer had equally appealed to them, providing an opportunity to downsize from the large family home at Yeronga to a low maintenance apartment with the added advantage of onsite amenity.
"We were living in a home with a river view at Yeronga and wanted to stay in the local area, so the location of Tennyson Reach was appealing, as was the high quality of the apartments and the ability to be close to our children and grandchildren," he said.
"The development also represents very good value, with the current price per square metre extremely competitive, particularly considering the location and inclusions.
"The apartment also fits with our stage of life, as we want to be able to travel and we can literally just close one door and go. The security is very good".
Mirvac Queensland Apartment Development Director, Brett Robinson, said interest in the final apartments was strong.
"There is a very limited supply of completed apartments of this quality, in such a prime location, currently available anywhere in Brisbane, so Tennyson Reach offers a rare opportunity to purchase and move straight in.
"With the final apartments now selling, buyers are realising they need to act quickly."
Along with a spectacular Brisbane River view, the final apartments feature high quality fittings and finishes, including European appliances, and are now selling from $995,000.
