Ashbury’s the word on local lips

LOCATED in a prime position in the Armstrong Creek urban growth area, Ashbury is set to become the new name on the lips of home buyers in the Geelong region.

The Dennis Family Corporation has formed a development relationship with the owners of two adjoining land parcels to master plan a new 107-hectare residential community.

Development of the Ashbury project has been designed to progress in stages. In aggregate, the land holdings which will form the estate are expected to ultimately encompass 1,400 lots, providing homes for a proposed population of approximately 4,000 people.

Civil construction works for Ashbury’s first stages are scheduled to begin later this year and be completed by early 2016.“As word about Ashbury spreads, there are already families seeking to be the first through the doors when advance sales commence,” Dennis Family Corporation chief executive officer Peter Levinge said. Ashbury will offer an enviable lifestyle, combining genuine affordability, coupled with a picturesque, well-positioned location.

Planned on-site amenities include a state primary school, local retail shopping centre, sporting ovals, tennis courts and a community complex accommodating kindergarten, childcare, maternal and child health and meeting room facilities. Another significant drawcard is that Ashbury will offer the advantage of being located within walking distance of the proposed future Armstrong Creek town centre, which is planned to include major retail and entertainment facilities, together with a public transport interchange. Abundant parklands and green space will feature prominently in Ashbury’s natural environment. A total of 12 hectares have been set aside as active and passive open space and conservation areas throughout the estate.

The planning for Ashbury also includes over 14kilometres of walking and cycling paths. Ashbury is within easy reach of all popular destinations in the region, being only 10 minutes by road to both Torquay and Geelong’s CBD, while Melbourne is just an hour away. The Dennis Family Corporation has been responsible for creating award-winning residential developments in Victoria and south east Queensland and is also well-known in the Geelong area through the high-quality work of its housing brand Dennis Family Homes.
