Although tiny Jacobs Well has one aspect by the modern buyer – water access – the quiet, secluded suburb is far from the Brisbane CBD and the thumping caf culture of the Gold Coast proper. Nonetheless, the area’s access to Moreton Bay islands and national parks, its reputation as a great fishing spot and its jetty have long attracted people seeking an active, outdoor lifestyle. Buyers looking for apartment living and a wild nightlife should look elsewhere. Jacobs Well is all about wide open spaces.
As well as its proximity to Gainsborough Greens Golf Course, parks, fishing and boating outlets and a whole host of bikeways and walkways, Jacobs Well also has good easy roads to the Gold Coast and Brisbane City, making it easy for couples and families to get to and from work, and nearby suburban schools.
Prices at Jacobs Well have remained affordable in comparison to many other Gold Coast suburbs, with plenty of options still well withing reach of the average first home buyer. The recognition of Jacobs Well as an accessible suburb, appropriate for couples, families and retirees alike, will ensure its steady residential growth.
