A COASTAL housing estate is kicking goals with its latest land release. Oakdene Estate has signed up footy commentator and former Geelong star Cameron Ling (pictured) as its ambassador as it launches a new selection of home blocks to the market. The stage eight land release comprises 38 elevated “family sized” lots ranging from 476sq m to 1467sq m.
Ling said every aspect of the development, in the heart of Ocean Grove, had been thoughtfully considered and carefully planned.
“Conservation and environmental protection is a priority, together with building design and sustainability, and creating a better living environment for residents,” he said.
“There’s no doubt Oakdene Estate is an ideal place to build a home and raise a family. The community is rich with great lifestyle factors and a friendliness that you just don’t get anywhere else.
”Residents can enjoy all the Bellarine Peninsula has to offer, including beautiful beaches, great restaurants, shops, golf courses, wineries, medical facilities, sporting clubs and community groups.
Oakdene Vineyards, with its restaurant and cellar door, is only a short stroll away, providing the estate’s residents with the perfect spot to catch up with friends and enjoy local wine and produce.
The estate’s design guidelines aim to ensure consistent architectural and construction quality of the homes built within it. They also provide for housing designs that complement the estate’s network of open space and coastal character.
Estate spokesman Nicholas O’Donohue said strong demand for Oakdene land was expected to continue with the stage eight release.
“With six stages already sold out and strong buyer interest from baby boomer downsizers and young families, Oakdene Estate is set to redefine Ocean Grove living,” Mr O’Donohue said.
He said 11 of the 38 stage eight blocks had been snapped up on the first weekend of their release.
A family day last weekend attracted about 600 visitors, including residents and Ocean Grove community groups, with live entertainment and music, face painting and a jumping castle, as well as free food and drinks.
