Hillstowe fast-tracks land release to meet local ‘country-style living’ demand

May 13, 2020 | IN Media Release and News | BY AVID | 3 min read

AVID Property Group (AVID) has last month fast-tracked its fifth land release in popular boutique community in Officer, Hillstowe by AVID Property Group, as sales remain strong with stage one completely sold out and 30 per cent of stage two already sold.

Since launching in July 2019, Hillstowe has experienced continued sales success as demand remains steady in Melbourne’s South East corridor– with the latest data from Core Projects indicating the region is currently outperforming all others 1.

AVID Property Group General Manager Victoria Peter Vlitas said an additional 35 lots have been released at Hillstowe following a constant stream of enquiry from buyers looking to build in a more ‘country-style’ – yet connected – community.

“Hillstowe is positioned in an ideal location – just a 15 minute walk to the Officer Train station and a mere 20 minute drive to the beautiful Dandenong Ranges – and really does offer the best of country-style community living, surrounded by the all-important local conveniences of modern life,” Mr Vlitas said.

“Our first land release, stage one, sold out within 12 weeks on the market and our second land release is already 30 per cent sold – all since our community launched less than 12 months ago, proving buyers are still out there if the offer is right.”

First home buyer Jordan Herangi said it was the prime location of the Hillstowe community that motivated his first house purchase.

“I was motivated to buy a home at Hillstowe because of the location, not only does it offer a great lifestyle, but the area is only going to grow – so that’s good for my investment,” Mr Herangi said.

“The community is close to everything I need and I’m looking forward to using the future park for BBQs – it’s going to have WIFI, which will be great for listening to music while I exercise outdoors.”

The $68 million community has celebrated several milestones in the first quarter of 2020, including commencing construction on stage one, and is set to soon unveil its community park design later in the year.

“We are looking forward to continuing to grow the Hillstowe community with the launch of our community park design later this year and the first houses due to be built onsite in the next few months,” Mr Vlitas said.

“We are especially looking forward to welcoming our first residents to Hillstowe in early next year.”

Hillstowe is the newest addition to AVID’s growing portfolio of exceptional masterplanned communities in Victoria. Set on 13.63 hectares, Hillstowe is surrounded by parkland and extensive education options for residents at all stages of life.

Hillstowe by AVID Property Group will deliver 225 homes – with the first lots expected to settle in June 2020, and the community is anticipated to reach completion in November 2021.
