EXCAVATION works are set to commence this week on the Woolamai House Estate after the first sod was officially turned on Sunday.
Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Neil Rankine and owner/developer Adam Grollo had the honour of marking the occasion of the 38 block release on one of Phillip Island’s most iconic property.
Just metres from the beaches of Cape Woolamai, Woolamai House offers absolute beachfront living wrapped within a quiet enclave in an exclusive location and lifestyle to match.
Woolamai House is set within the grounds of one of Phillip Island’s first homesteads.
The original property was established in 1876 by the famed horse trainer Captain John Cleeland who trained his horse ‘Woolamai’ to a Melbourne Cup victory.
Now, over 130 years later, Phillip Island’s best address is waiting for you to call it home, with a premium selection on offer to suit many lifestyles.
Greg Price from Alex Scott and Staff Real Estate in Cowes said the location spoke for itself.
“It’s been a long journey for the Grollo family who absolutely adore this land and it’s testament to them the way they have retained this magnificent property on over four acres of boutique land,” Mr Price said at the ceremony.
“When a family or a developer does something like this, it’s about a partnership with the community and I think it’s been wonderful how the family has been so sensitive to the design of this development.
“I have been involved in a lot of land developments in my time and I can honestly say that this has been the most superb project to work on because of the care and thought which has gone into creating a residential development around such an iconic site.”
Bass Coast Mayor, Neil Rankine also praised the development.
“What a great outcome this is. We are getting a development around here that is sensitive to the area and we are getting it purchased by locals,” Cr Rankine said.
“That means that we will actually have a community here. It’s not just going to be vacant houses all the time. People that come here are going to know one another.
“This is going to be great I think. I’m really impressed that we have a great outcome here.”
Woolamai House has sold 12 of the 38 blocks of land on offer, with the remaining 26 blocks ranging from $249,000 through to $719,000.
