Mainwaring Townhouses - Coastal Living by Design


It’s not often you have the opportunity to live in a home designed by an iconic and award-winning architect. Named for its visionary designer, John Mainwaring of Hollindale Mainwaring Architecture (HMA), the Mainwaring Collection of designer townhomes brings new life to Brightwater.


The Mainwaring Collection is more than a collection of beautiful townhomes in an idyllic setting. It’s a full expression of John’s design philosophy – one that has shaped the Sunshine Coast’s distinctive style for more than 35 years and has elevated his status as a leading architect in Queensland’s design and development community. John’s architecture embraces the essence of subtropical living in South East Queensland, reflecting his belief that living in this unique part of the world should be about space, air and light.  Sometimes conveying a ‘beach shack’ simplicity, John’s designs reference the history of their communities while using contemporary design processes, materials and technology for an aesthetic that is undeniably place-specific.

John also understands how peoples use of space lies behind every design, from the street presence to every interior detail. In his Mainwaring Collection for Brightwater, this philosophy carries through  the choice of materials, and the way space, light and breezes interplay to create a truly unique home in Brightwater, voted Queensland’s best masterplanned community in 2016.

The innovative layouts of the Mainwaring Collection townhomes provide a stunning blueprint for coastal terrace living.
Their Sunshine Coast aesthetic – featuring lightweight construction and unpretentious materials that respond to climate and place – is complemented by carefully considered design details. The meticulous design planning is epitomised by the inclusion of internal courtyards, which promote cross ventilation and combine with high level windows and stairwells  to drive lots of natural light to the centre of the homes and extract hot air. All whilst being highly functional in providing an out of site place for essential services and open air clothes drying, as well as additional storage.

Generous eaves also create an interesting façade and protect the exterior of your home from the elements. Thoughtful landscaping adds unmistakeable character  to the streetscape and sets the Mainwaring Collection apart – while a public central courtyard at Essen provides direct access to the pool and canal. In the Mainwaring Collection, the traditional townhome has been redesigned for a sub-tropical climate, with cleverly integrated features for bright coastal living.


A true coastal lifestyle is one lived outdoors. Each home opens to a generous outdoor dining and living area, with a low maintenance courtyard to allow you to spend more time doing the things you love.  Inside, central lightwells and large windows let natural light and coastal air pour into the middle of your home. Your kitchen prioritises light, space and liveability, with high quality European appliances, stone benchtops and seriously smart storage.

As well as the array of shopping and leisure facilities, Brightwater is positioned within easy reach of local healthcare facilities, sporting facilities, and first-class education and childcare options. Mountain Creek and surrounds will benefit from strong ongoing investment in transformational new infrastructure – with several large-scale projects planned or underway including new retail, commercial and health precincts. Major arterial roads and public transport networks connect you to major hubs such as the new CBD at Maroochydore. And of course, the Brightwater community is surrounded by the beauty of nature, including the Mooloolah River National Park and picturesque world-famous beaches. The region is becoming more and more vibrant for the communities who call it home.


You’ll find healthy outdoor living in abundance at Brightwater. Start the day with a kayak, a scenic walk around the waterways and parkland, or a session at  one of the lakeside fitness sessions. Or sign up to the weekly Brightwater parkrun for a social spin on fitness.With more than 5 kilometres of walking and bike paths and a ‘walking school bus’ program, children can safely walk and ride to school. Our network of pathways joins other communities and extends right to the coastal edges.

At Brightwater you’ll discover a vibrant established community. Its many parks, walking trails  and community facilities are filled with a strong sense of community spirit. The lake is this friendly community’s recreational centrepiece. You can stroll around it in the morning and be  calmed by its serenity, or set off from the boat ramp in kayaks. Unwind by the water at the end of the day with drinks at the Brightwater Hotel. With sports fields, playgrounds and a dog  off-leash park, this family-friendly neighbourhood already feels like home.
