The Advocate (Perth) - - WHAT'S ON PLANNER -

ROSE­HILL Wa­ters es­tate in South Guild­ford of­fers a sus­tain­able, fam­ily-friendly life­style in a pic­turesque and con­ve­nient lo­ca­tion.

It sits along­side the lovely Helena River, is close to the at­trac­tions of his­toric Guild­ford and the Swan Val­ley, and a 13km com­mute from the city.

The lo­ca­tion was a draw­card for Kathryn Chivers and her part­ner Gavyn McCart­ney.

“Guild­ford is beau­ti­ful, with lovely restau­rants and cafes, and there is a nice walk trail along the Helena River,” she said

“Plus, we live in Mid­land at the mo­ment and I al­ready have a yoga place, hair­dresser and beauty ther­a­pist that I would like to stay close to.

“Rose­hill is also close to the train sta­tion and this was very im­por­tant to me as I am vis­ually im­paired and can’t drive.”

The lo­ca­tion was also ap­peal­ing for Antony Precha and his part­ner Stephanie Schreier

“We were look­ing to buy an es­tab­lished home first, but there was noth­ing we liked, so we de­cided to go for some­thing new,” he said.

“Rose­hill is close to where we work; Stephanie works in the Swan Val­ley and I work in Vic­to­ria Park. “It’s also a re­ally nice area.” The lo­ca­tion is not the only at­trac­tion for buy­ers; Rose­hill Wa­ters is be­ing de­vel­oped to achieve out­stand­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal per­for­mance and has been awarded the Ur­ban De­vel­op­ment In­sti­tute of Aus­tralia’s En­vi­roDevel­op­ment top six-leaf rat­ing for ex­cel­lence in sus­tain­abil­ity.

The six-leaf rat­ing makes sure com­mu­nity plan­ning is care­fully blended with strong en­vi­ron­men­tal per­for­mance and ex­cel­lent de­sign to cre­ate a so­cia­ble, at­trac­tive neigh­bour­hood.

Mr Precha was also won over by the en­vi­ron­men­tal fea­tures and other ben­e­fits on of­fer.

“It’s great, you get so­lar pan­els and an in­verter,” he said.

“Fences are in­cluded, plus your gar­dens get looked af­ter for 16 weeks af­ter your home is com­pleted.”

En­vi­ron­men­tal ben­e­fits are not the only in­cen­tives avail­able to buy­ers. For a lim­ited time, Rose­hill Wa­ters is of­fer­ing firsthome buy­ers a spe­cial in­cen­tive to help them achieve their de­posit and fi­nance.

For ev­ery dol­lar a first-home buyer con­trib­utes, the de­vel­op­ers will put in a dol­lar, up to $15,000 over a spe­cific pe­riod of time.

There will be 50 lots re­served for the scheme over the three stages of the de­vel­op­ment.

Blocks will be up to 400sq m,
