Darcy and Polly Shuttlewood purchased the original cane farm adjacent to the old Eimeo Road in 1939. On the death of their father in 1942, Norm Shuttlewood took over running the farm with his younger brother Teddy. Later, youngest brother Clive joined them on the farm and the brothers expanded, purchasing an adjacent farm. Decades later, the current Mackay Bucasia road linking the city with the Northern Beaches carved right through the original property. The family subsequently developed Golf Link Heights on the western side of that new road. Norm together with wife Joyce remained on the farm for over 60 years. They were both actively involved in what was then a very small community drawn from families living at Eimeo, Bucasia, Shoal Point, Blacks Beach and the cane farms extending from the beaches back to the Shuttlewood property. Kerrisdale Estate is currently run and managed by the 7 children of Joyce and Norm Shuttlewood.

I can’t comment enough on your dedication and the perfectness during the construction of our beautiful home. You have done such a fantastic job. We were very surprised on the end outcome. Thanks for building our dream home…
Working with Team at Living Homes made building easy, and enjoyable.
We changed our minds quite a few times, last minute. Living Homes was very accommodating to our needs. They assisted with various trips to suppliers for design and colour options. We were kept in contact daily, Maryanne was always helpful, extremely pleasant and thorough. We would recommend Living Homes for value and quality and look forward to working with them on our next build.’

Building our first home with Living Homes was such a breeze! A lot of people who had their opinions with building new homes said we were mad, it didn’t go that way for us! Living Homes kept us up to date with what was going on throughout the build right up to handover. The team at Living Homes were very prompt with what they did and never dropped their standards from start to finish!
We would definitely recommend Maryanne and the team at Living Homes North Queensland, we absolutely love our new home, and when we build again it would definitely be with them again!
