Mirvac Group has unveiled its plans to unlock Doncaster’s former Eastern Golf Course with a new 800-home residential community.
Tullamore will feature approximately 800 dwellings set across the former 47 hectare Eastern Golf Course site, which Mirvac purchased in 2011 after the course operators decided to relocate to the Yarra Valley. Twenty per cent of the area will be returned to the community in the form of open space.
Mirvac Group Executive Residential John Carfi said Tullamore had already become one of Melbourne’s most anticipated residential communities.
"We have designed a truly one-off community that will be home to discerning purchasers living across a mix of architecturally-designed homes, terraces and apartments," he said.
“Equally as important, Tullamore will unlock this former golf course site, its tree-lined fairways and parklands for the whole community to enjoy.”
More than nine hectares of the development will feature playgrounds, parkland, and walking and cycling trails, while natural landmarks and age-old trees will be retained. Mirvac Group will also retain the historic clubhouse and stables that are on the property.
Mirvac’s home designs will range from spacious townhouses to larger premium homes spanning two or three levels.
Tullamore has achieved a Six Leaf sustainability rating through the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s (UDIA) nationally-recognised Envirodevelopment sustainability rating tool.
