Featuring a combination of older style and more modern properties, Benowa offers buyers the choice of everything from affordable homes needing a few renovations to refurbished prestige waterfront properties. There are three distinct areas which make up Benowa: established Benowa on the northern side of Ashmore Road, Benowa Hills on the rising slopes west of Benowa Road, and the secluded exclusive neighbourhood of Benowa Waters which is to the south of Lake Capabella.
Although there are older homes in this esteemed part of Benowa, most are less than eight years old. The majority of houses here tend to be externally rendered and many feature impressive architectural designs with good use of glass. Homebuyers have a large selection of dry and waterfront blocks to choose from, with many of the waterfront properties backing onto Main River, wide canals or Lake Kelly. Nearby Sir Bruce Small Park provides baseball fields, a bowling green and football and cricket fields for sport lovers. Although the ambience of Benowa is worlds apart from the action of the Gold Coast tourist strip, its central location means visitors are never far from the surf, night life, golf clubs, theme parks and other attractions which the city is famous for.
Even the scenic hinterland range is only a short drive away. According to the Census 2001 data, 72 per cent of homes in Benowa are either fully owned or being purchased, ensuring the suburb's rental market remains tight. Over the past five years Benowa has developed into one of the Gold Coast's most affluent areas attracting buyers (residents and investors) with its location and wide range of homes. Benowa is expected to maintain this position, with the growth seen in recent times set to continue.
