Last chance to buy in WGV at White Gum Valley

17 Dec 2016

Only one of the 23 single residential lots remains for sale.

Sized 301sqm and priced $410,000, Lot 24 has an outlook facing the Royal Fremantle Golf Course and comes with a $10,000 sustainability package and a design consultation with the WGV estate architect.

The Certificate of Title is available and the land is ready for development now.

With only 23 single residential lots in total, LandCorp chief executive Frank Marra said this land estate offers an unparalleled opportunity to live in a sustainable community in the City of Fremantle.

Mr Marra said the development's sustainability features were leading examples of Innovation through Demonstration and a major attraction for future residents.

"WGV stands alone as Western Australia's first One Planet Community, achieving international recognition through global sustainability initiative One Planet Living," he said.

"The development will feature cutting edge energy, water and climate-responsive design which will equip residents to save up to $1,200 per year in reduced water and power bills through the development's sustainability measures."

Recent purchaser Jim De Baughn, Director of Highbury Homes was introduced to WGV after his company – one of Perth's leading residential home builders – signed up to deliver house and land packages at the estate.

Mr De Baughn said it quickly became apparent to he and wife Joanne that WGV was exactly what they'd been looking for in their own hunt for a new home.

"My wife and I had been looking for something for quite a while. We wanted to be near Fremantle but not in the city itself, and we had been looking at Beaconsfield – but once we saw WGV we realised it ticked all the boxes for us," he said.

"The environmental credentials at WGV really appealed to us, as did the idea that it was on an old school site."

The De Baughns have purchased a 350sqm lot in their own right, and plan to begin building next year.

Their lot is close to the one remaining lot for sale at WGV, opposite the golf course on a corner lot, and has a north facing aspect. Mr De Baughn said the couple planned to build an eco-friendly home, in line with the sustainability principles employed at WGV.

"It's to do with your impact and trying to economise in these expensive times – it's important to us that we minimise our environmental footprint, and at the same time keeping the bills down as much as possible is obviously a good outcome," he said.

He said the community feel and focus at WGV had also appealed, with Mrs De Baughn planning to offer craft classes at Sullivan Hall.

"Joanne is very keen to get something going with the community in Sullivan Hall – the fact that the venue is there to use and to get the locals involved is fantastic, and she's really looking forward to that," said Mr De Baughn.

The two hectare residential estate is on the former Kim Beazley School site, just 3kms from the centre of Fremantle.

WGV offers people the chance to buy into Fremantle while also offering local residents wanting to downsize their homes an opportunity to do so in their local community and in high-quality, appealing housing types.
