Grass roots investment inspires changing landscape

At Dunsborough Lakes we don’t believe in letting the grass grow under our feet… not least when it comes to landscaping. In the past 12 months we’ve invested over $1.5million dollars in new parkland, play areas, stonework and planting initiatives. This includes extensive development of the Fairways parklands, the entry to the Greens precinct and further works around the Display Village and Sales Office.

In addition, over 100 new street trees have been planted and we have maintained our commitment to providing generous landscaping packages to new residents with a view to preserving a high quality of streetscape across the entire estate. Although we couldn’t be happier with the outcome of these projects, we have no plans to rest on our laurels just yet. Over the next 12 months our team of green-fingered architects, landscapers and gardeners will be getting back to work creating two brand new parks in the Greens and Fairways precincts.

Land sales strong as Display Village nears capacity

As the rest of the State’s property sector continues to do it tough Dunsborough Lakes has maintained an impressive ability to buck the trend. Land sales have held strong in the last 12 months with local buyers keen to take advantage of improved affordability and generous builder incentives.

“We are the only project in the area offering house and land at prices well under $500,000,” says Estate Manager Geoff Bowman. “This makes the estate appealing to pretty much all segments of the market, from first home buyers eager to escape the rent trap, through to downsizers and investors.” Land prices at Dunsborough Lakes currently range from $149,000 for traditional cottage lots up to $360,000 for family-sized homesites of 500sqm plus.

Evidence of the project’s ongoing popularity can be witnessed at the Display Village each weekend, where visitor numbers continue to rise.
Eight of the village’s proposed 10 display homes are now open showcasing the very latest designs from local project builders. The Display Village is open Mon, Weds, Sat & Sun from 1-5pm and, combined with lunch at a local winery or ice creams for the kids at nearby Simmo’s, makes for an ideal stop-off on a day out.
