Mirvac have announced their Doncaster development, Tullamore Community, will incorporate sustainable initiatives such as Tesla battery packs and Evergen solar technology.
Located on the former fifth hole of the Eastern Golf Course in Melbourne's outer suburb of Doncaster, the developer is attempting to maximise the value of a high demand site situated 1km from the Westfield Doncaster shopping centre.
Mirvac purchased the site six years ago for a reported $100 million and the "8 Edition" homes valued at $1.85 million each will be developed within the Emerald precinct stage of the greater estate.
Each home is set to include innovative sustainable features with the integration of the CSIRO-backed Evergen solar generation technology, and the Tesla Powerwall 2 battery to reduce energy bills and generate power using renewable energy.
The Tullamore Community development comes off the back of Mirvac testing the market last year through four limited release homes, of which all sold within a day.
According to Mirvac, the developer saw demand from premium home buyers looking for unique property, who were attracted to space and low maintenance appeal of the brand-new designs featuring flexible living options.
“With such a rare and unique site we wanted to ensure we were designing homes that families could see themselves living in for a lifetime. We undertook extensive research into how homes are used and what our buyers were looking for to ensure their dream home today continues well into the future,” Andrew La, national housing design director at Mirvac said.
“We looked at the way home use changes over the years, from having children’s rooms on the upper level near parents when they are young to allowing them to have their own downstairs retreat when they are older.”
Mirvac’s general manager of residential, Elysa Anderson, said the Doncaster market was performing well and producing a strong demand for large contemporary properties to suit families, including those with multiple generations living at one address.
“As a well-established blue chip suburb, Doncaster continues to attract a range of purchasers, however those looking for a large and modern luxury home have previously been under serviced,”Anderson said.
