More than 20 groups of buyers camped out to secure land in the first stage of Bridgefield, a new $320 million community at 1230 Leakes Rd, Rockbank in Melbourne’s west.
Stage One of the 1000-lot estate, being developed by 3L Alliance and Goldfields, was released on March 19 and recorded 49 sales in the first week.
The developer said it expects to sell the remaining eight lots quickly, prompting an earlier-than-forecast release of the second stage.
Goldfields Marketing Director, Mr Rohan Ames, said buyers were attracted to Bridgefield’s easy access to the nearby Rockbank train station, a planned shopping centre, a residents’ club and the estate’s commitment to landscaping and recreation areas.
“Bridgefield is one of few new residential communities serviced by an established train station that’s within walking distance,” Mr Ames said.
Internationally renowned garden guru Wes Fleming has overseen the design of 16 hectares of botanic gardens and green spaces throughout the community, while buyers will have the choice of one of six free landscape treatments for their front garden, also overseen by Wes Fleming.
“On top of that, the Bridgefield residents’ club – including swimming pool, tennis courts, gym, residents’ lounge and function room – is an entirely new offer for the area.”
Civil construction works are planned to begin in mid-2016, with the first residents expected to move in by mid-2017. Lot sizes in Stage One range from 221 square metres to 799 sqm. Prices start at $134,000.
