Hi Guys, I v bought a house recently for subdivision-- to sell with a permit is my goal. Fact sheet: Bayside surburb: Cheltenham land:620--capable of dual properties advantage: walking distance to shopping center and train station disadvantage: rail way---50 meters away from the fence of backyard (noise&vibration,commuter line, no horning) Now we are at the stage of design/floor plan---4 bedrooms& 2 stories. It is much more tricky tough compared with the ones on good&normal streets. we try to minimize the impact from the rail way while work out the most desirable floor plan My questions are: 1.should we go for two townhouses-side by side in strips (both will be impacted by the noise) or one in the front (limited noise) and one at the back (take all the noise) 2. Is the master bedroom with en-suite DOWNSTAIRS more desirable now? Cashed up seniors for downsizing must like it, but who will be our target end user market? Thanks heaps!! Or anyone has experience with the development on land next to a rail way can shed some lights? much appreciated!
