The Advocate (Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

A LOVE of the out­doors, hik­ing and sun­sets brought Mathew and Nina Hughes to Avon Ridge – and now they are cel­e­brat­ing be­ing the 100th pur­chaser at the Bri­gadoon es­tate.

Hav­ing lived in Aus­tralia for five years, the UK-born cou­ple found their per­fect 1.6ha lot in the Peet com­mu­nity amid the Dar­ling Ranges, 37km from the Perth CBD and close to the Swan and Avon val­leys.

They are plan­ning an el­e­vated home with a val­ley view.

“We chose Avon Ridge be­cause the larger lot sizes were ap­peal­ing, the con­nec­tion to na­ture is just beau­ti­ful and there’s space to have your own peace of mind out there,” Mr Hughes said.

“It’s just amaz­ing that there can be so many peo­ple who will be part of the com­mu­nity but it still feels spa­cious and you don’t have your neigh­bours right on your doorstep.”

Im­por­tantly, their minia­ture schnau­zer Gus has also given the pur­chase his tick of ap­proval.

“Gus loves it. We took him to the block a cou­ple of weeks ago and he was run­ning around like crazy,” Mr Hughes said.

“He has small legs so a block that size with all of the space will wear him out no wor­ries.

“We’re re­ally look­ing for­ward to the life­style we’ll all be able to en­joy liv­ing at Avon Ridge, hav­ing Bells Rapids around the cor­ner, going for walks in John For­rest Na­tional Park and we’re on the doorstep of the Swan Val­ley.

“I’m ex­cited about be­ing able to cook out­doors while watch­ing the sun set sur­rounded by na­ture.

“There’s a hol­low stump on our lot and I’m think­ing about turn­ing it into a cook­ing pit.”

There are also bar­be­cues in the es­tate’s park, as well as paths and grassed and shaded pic­nic ar­eas.

Nearby ameni­ties in­clude es­tab­lished schools, re­tail cen­tres, restau­rants and sport­ing and med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties.

For a lim­ited time, buy­ers can save more than $50,000 on se­lect lots rang­ing from 15,140sq m to 22,320sq m with frontages from 105.97m to 133.63m and sweep­ing views.

For more in­for­ma­tion, phone Clay Holt at Ru­ral and Metro Realty on 0437 029 826, visit the land sales Cen­tre be­tween 1pm and 5pm on week­ends or go to avon­ridge.
