A NEW land re­lease is giv­ing buy­ers a chance to live in the heart of award-win­ning The Vil­lage at Wellard, with shops, cafes, train and beau­ti­ful parks on the doorstep.

The 10 blocks re­leased last week­end in The Vil­lage Cen­tre south stage five range from 273sq m to 429sq m and are priced from $165,000 to $220,000.

They are on Sowood Street and Por­to­bello Pa­rade, which are be­tween a na­ture play park and an ad­ven­ture park.

All stage five lots are less than 10 min­utes walk from The Vil­lage cen­tre, with a Wool­worths su­per­mar­ket, cafes and spe­cialty stores. They are also near The Vil­lage Cen­tre south park.

A joint ven­ture be­tween Peet and the WA Hous­ing Author­ity, the es­tate is renowned for its com­mu­nity feel and nat­u­ral fea­tures, which in­clude 10ha of wet­lands and 17ha of re­tained bush­land, pro­vid­ing beau­ti­ful out­looks for many homes and great na­ture es­capes for res­i­dents.

Amy Tun­necliffe, who is mov­ing into the com­mu­nity with partner Nathan Reid in the next month, said they loved the bush vibe.

“Some es­tates are just flat and life­less but we love that they left all the tall gum trees and the banksia,” she said.

“We were after a 550sqm block as we didn’t want the house up against the back fence but could have a back yard for our dogs. We also wanted to be across the road from a park and we’ve got that too.

“There’s bar­be­cues and neigh­bours meet at that park al­most ev­ery af­ter­noon, and there are al­ways par­ties and gath­er­ings hap­pen­ing there.”

Jack Shaw and his partner Sarah Mar­shall will soon move into their new home after fi­nal­is­ing the block pur­chase last Novem­ber.

“Our builder rec­om­mended a range of lots for us to look at,” he said. “We went to The Vil­lage at Wellard. It was green, pretty chilled out and seemed like a re­ally nice spot. And with the train sta­tion there, its value should go up in the fu­ture.”

With their first child due in Novem­ber, the cou­ple are look­ing for­ward to mov­ing from their rented one-bed­room apart­ment to the three-bed­room, two-bath­room house.

The me­chan­i­cal fit­ter will also be happy to have a fuss-free com­mute of less than 30 min­utes from Wellard to his Can­ning Vale work­place.

The Vil­lage at Wellard is more than 70 per cent com­plete.

It has won na­tional and state awards, in­clud­ing UDIA WA Awards for Ex­cel­lence for Best Res­i­den­tial De­vel­op­ment over 250 lots in 2016 and Best Master­planned De­vel­op­ment in 2015.
