Michael and Carlene Duffy from The Block.

Ipswich residents can meet former stars of The Block Michael and Carlene Duffy and Selling Houses Australia’s Andrew Winter today (1 September) when a new $15 million display village opens at Providence South Ripley.

A fun-filled day of food, entertainment and informative presentations has been planned.

The event, which kicks off at 1pm and closes with a spectacular fireworks display at 6pm, will include food trucks, a play zone with face painters, kids playzone, sideshow alley, live entertainment and show bags.

Broadcaster Ben Davis will host the event with Michael and Carlene Duffy of The Block fame providing styling tips, while Selling Houses Australia’s Andrew Winter will share his insights on buying property.

The new display village will include nearly 30 homes designed to showcase living at Providence Ripley.

Builders on display include Metricon, Rivergum Homes, Syltemaster, Simonds, Burbank, Bold Living, Coral Homes, Bella, Desire Homes, Homes by CMA, Stroud Homes, Silkwood Homes, GJ Gardner Homes and Brighton Homes.

Selling Houses Australia’s property expert Andrew Winter will share his insights at Providence South Ripley.

One of the highlights of the village will be Rivergum Homes’ Oxygen Series designs, which have been designed to create a perfect balance between South East Queensland’s temperate climate and modern design.

Rivergum Homes national design manager John Eckert said the designs incorporated elements that acknowledged a potential buyer’s obvious desire to be comfortable in their own home.

“The whole range has been designed with solar flip, where the outdoor entertainment area, kitchen and living area is flappable on every plan, so we can get the best available solar orientation,” he said.

Providence is the largest masterplanned community in the Ripley Valley growth corridor where there is a massive $4.4 billion worth of residential projects under way which will ultimately provide about 50,000 dwellings to house 120,000 people.
