Agavilla In Review: Agavilla Yeerongpilly Brings Style & Space to Low-Maintenance Living


Located in the historic Brisbane riverside suburb of Yeerongpilly, Agavilla Terrace Homes is challenging the assumption that low-maintenance living must come at the expense of space and style.

Positioned at the end of a leafy cul-de-sac, and developed by local Brisbane developer

RPC, the 14 boutique terrace homes bring together timeless architecture, impeccable finishes, oversized living areas, spacious outdoor terraces and sub-tropically landscaped garden courtyards.

“When we first developed the vision for Agavilla, it was all about bringing together a truly unique offering. As a family owned company, we knew that four things mattered: location, luxury, lifestyle and livability,” said RPC Managing Director, Andrew Toumbas.

“Yerongpilly is a beautiful suburb that is characterised by leafy streets and historic Queensland homes and we wanted to create a low maintenance lifestyle without compromising on thoughtful design, quality finishes, green space or entertaining areas.”


Elegant Style With Space To Live

Every design decision made in the planning of Agavilla was focused on presenting a residence with style and elegance whilst maximising the space for living and storage.

Each of the 14 duplex and triplex homes boasts a total area of 300m2

+, an average total internal size of 140m2, real hardwood-finished floors and extra-large, double-car secure garages.

Add to that the 2.7m high ceilings that cover the ground floor, and the open-plan kitchen complete with Asko appliances, and these terrace homes rival any equivalent free-standing house in style, living space and storage.

According to Edyta Abramczyk of HPC Architecture, the initial design brief was truly ‘something different’.

“They wanted not just houses but homes – places where people feel a strong sense of belonging. My goal was to create private oases that take full advantage of the luxuriant greenery of neighbouring parklands, paths and cycle ways.”

“The idea was to build a haven for those desiring a home that embodies the best life can offer. I aimed for a timeless architectural style and impeccable interior finishes, seamlessly flowing indoor and outdoor living areas and spacious terraces bordering sub-tropically landscaped garden courtyards.”


One of the more unique features of each Agavilla home is the totally concreted undercroft situated below the deck and behind the courtyard. A space that is typically under-utilised in most developments, the undercroft was intentionally included by the developer as an area to keep those extra items that might otherwise need a paid storage solution, but can instead be kept at the home but out of the way.


Situated For The Necessities Of Life
Agavilla is situated for access to all the amenities that life requires. Only 8km south-east from the Brisbane CBD, both the Princess Alexandra hosptital and The University of Queensland are a short drive away, and Yeronga Primary is less than a 5-minute walk from Agavilla Terrace Homes.

Yeerongpilly is home to three parks, with the Moorooka Lions Bicentennial Picnic Ground Park less than a 5-minute walk from Agavilla. Located on the eastern boundary of the suburb, the park offers a lovely mix of open, grassy picnic space adjoining the nearby creek, as well as kids’ playground facilities.

Public transport options are also plentiful, with a bus stop just around the corner, and the Yeerongpilly Train Station only a 10-minute walk away.


Yeerongpilly's Brand New Mixed-Use Precinct
In 2015 a 14 hectare piece of land (formerly the Animal Research Institute) between the Queensland Tennis Centre (Tennyson) and the Yeerongpilly railway station was approved for a development of a new mixed-use, lifestyle precinct.

This new urban village will include retail and commercial precincts featuring boutique coffee shops, charming bars and restaurant, a major supermarket, a 100-bed hotel as well as commercial office buildings.


A Strong Response From The Owner-Occupier Market

Local residents Tom and Jess McPhail recently purchased a terrace home in Agavilla, and had this to say about their decision to purchase.

“We had been contemplating a ‘scale down’ for a long time but had concluded that the idea of minimal yard and maintenance and space were mutually exclusive. Location, size and quality were the things that stood out when we first saw Agavilla. Quite simply, it ticked all of the boxes.”

The project is being marketed by Ryan Leddicoat of Stack Projects with prices for 3 Bedroom Terrace Homes starting at $730,000. Ryan says that “the truly unique thing about these townhomes is that they have an under-roof area up to 257m2, giving buyers the kind of space normally reserved for a free-standing house, but with the added benefit of lower maintenance requirements. The market response to this has been amazing, so it’s no wonder there are only 6 homes remaining.”
