Demand rides a wave at Parklands
Demand for land at Parklands Coastal Estate has been ‘phenomenal’ thanks to buyers seeking a sea change on the beautiful Bass Coast.
As the first master planned community in Bass Coast Shire, Parklands Coastal Estate has set a new benchmark for quality, environmentally
responsible development in the once sleepy rural town of Wonthaggi.
When completed, Parklands will comprise 650 lots ranging in size from 500 to 1,200 square metres. Stages one and two of the 15 stage development have already sold out.
Parklea Sales and Marketing Manager Jarod Mills said Parklands had proved ‘phenomenally’ popular with young families, couples and retirees drawn to the area by the promise of relaxed country living, proximity to the coast and good transport links to the Casey Cardinia Region and wider metropolitan Melbourne. “For many people Parklands Coastal Estate offers a dream lifestyle,” Mr Mills said.
“Living by the coast with all the recreation and lifestyle benefits that it has to offer is very appealing to buyers. People are fed up with sitting in peak hour traffic on the Monash. They want to be able to surf or fish after work and take their kids for a bike ride through the countryside on weekends.” When completed, Parklands will include extensive walking trails as well as exercise
stations through nearly eight hectares of parkland and open space.
Bass Coast has been benefiting from an injection of funds from government authorities with funds recently announced for the town’s hospital ($115M) and a new senior campus for the Wonthaggi
Secondary College ($25M). In recent years, access to the area has also improved with the significant upgrades to the Bass Highway.
“People can see what Parklea has done at Timbertop in Officer and can be assured Parklands Coastal Estate will be of a similar high standard. We take the job of building communities very
seriously.” Mr Mills said.
