YOU really need to visit the new Heartlands Estate in Wonthaggi to fully appreciate its unique setting and position, so close to the centre of town. And you’ll have the perfect opportunity to do just that this weekend following the official opening of this superbly deigned and located residential development.
“All the construction work has been completed now and the landscaping is in place so people can really get a good idea what it’s going to be like once we see the first of the new homes going up, which won’t be too far away,” said PBE Real Estate agent, Adam Mabilia. From this weekend, PBE will have an agent on site at the Heartlands Estate, off South Dudley Road, every Saturday and Sunday, from 1pm onwards so it’s an ideal opportunity to take a drive through the estate and see it for yourself. “I don’t think people will realise just how close the blocks are to the centre of town until they come in and have a look around for themselves,” said Adam.
“Following the estate’s integration into the network of local pathways, including the newly sealed section of the rail trail, it would be quite feasible to leave your car in the garage all week and take an easy walk to the Wonthaggi Plaza or the main street to get your supplies.” In fact, the new estate is bordered on its eastern end by the Wonthaggi Plaza complex, the Wonthaggi Wetlands Reserve to the north, parklands to the south and the rail trail and town walking paths to the west. It offers unrivalled lifestyle and convenience. “The blocks on both sides of the estate face either the wetlands or parkland so they’ll all have a pleasing aspect,” said Adam. “As well as the extensive, landscape design work and the centrally located park with rotunda, picnic tables and park benches; the estate is fully serviced with natural gas and NBN connection to every block, underground power, kerb and channelling, stormwater drainage, sewerage and all the wanted services,” Mr Mabilia said.
You certainly get that sense of arrival when you enter the new Heartlands Estate from South Dudley Road (near the hospital corner). Timber bollards and newly laid native gardens are a feature at the entrance, helping the project to blend in with its natural surrounds. The main boulevard into the estate runs one way, in a loop, all the way round, past 50 exclusive allotments ranging in size from a compact 300m2 to a generous 1000m2 and priced from $155,000. “We think the estate will appeal to a wide cross section of the community from young families to professional couples and retirees; anyone who values a central location and the lifestyle opportunities that Heartlands offers. “Now that all of the construction and landscaping work has been completed we would expect titles to be issued in the next two months and hopefully, to see housing construction begin there before Christmas. “A lot of care and attention to detail has gone into the development of this estate and PBE is delighted to be bringing it to market. “We feel sure it has the potential to develop into the town’s premier residential estate,” Mr Mabilia said.
