rush on to enjoy life down by marina
THE development of Cape Jaffa Anchorage, between Robe and Kingston in the SouthEast, is growing as allotment owners start building their homes in stage one of the project.
The Cape Jaffa Development Company now has completed $18 million of settlements in stage one of the marina development and has seen solid pre-sales in stage two.
Set on the shores of Lacepede Bay on the Limestone Coast, the marina ultimately will comprise seven construction stages with about 700 residential allotments, 120 marina berths, a tavern, shopping facilities and tourist accommodation.
At present, more than 25 crayfishing vessels and a large number of recreational boats operate from the marina.
A four-lane boat ramp was completed early last year and the marina has wharfage areas and diesel fuel available.
About 10 homes have been built on the marina and 12 more are expected to begin construction in the next few months.
Development sales and marketing director Mark Hayward says excellent levels of development applications have been lodged with the design review committee and the local council since late last year.
‘‘As a result, we expect high levels of building activity over the next 12 months,’’ he says.
‘‘People have been attracted to our project for a number of reasons, but primarily they love the region – wineries, beautiful beaches, great fishing, aquatic life and importantly a relaxed lifestyle.
‘‘They have also recognised the quality of our project. Purchasers and visitors all com- ment on the stunning limestone block walls that line the marina. We offer fully serviced allotments, which include reticulated gas, mains water and sewer, all of which is unique in a regional setting.’’
The marquee release of the ‘‘Island’’ in stage two is scheduled later this year and registrations of interest are now being taken for this premium release.
‘‘When people look at the concept plan they immediately identify the island as the place they want to live,’’ Mr Hayward says.
‘‘The island will be accessed via a limestone block bridge, that will be a real feature within the marina.’’
Stage two allotments are available, with a limited number of stage one allotments.
Marina-front land starts at $228,000.
