Willetton breaks land drought with first major release in decades
Property buyers hunting for affordability are expected to home in on the first land estate offered in Willetton for almost four decades.
The 41-lot estate cornering Arlington Drive unlocks the much-needed demand for affordability in the area with entry level allotments priced from $390,000 – a fraction of the market price of residential land historically offered in the suburb.
LJ Hooker Shelley | Willetton | Cockburn City Principal and estate selling agent Victor Paz said the land release, bordered by South Street and the Roe Highway, finally gave a vision to what was the missing link in Willetton’s urban landscape.
“The site is well-known in the area and there’s been countless rumours as to what would become of it, especially as the neighbourhood and major infrastructure and shopping precinct surrounding it came out of the ground,” said Mr Paz.
“The development approval allows for 41 allotments ranging in size from 350sqm to 449sqm.
“Being with the Willetton Senior School catchment, a major employment hub in the Fiona Stanley Hospital, and amenities including parks and the Southland Shopping Centre, will make the estate a sought-after address for people looking to break into the property market, only 25 minutes from the city’s CBD.”
Mr Paz said contracts had already been issued on three allotments prior to the official launch of the boutique estate.
“Over the years we’ve developed an extensive database of people that want to build their own property with easy access to the CBD but don’t want to spend upwards of $800,000 for the privilege.
“These lots have been designed to be affordable and low maintenance so residents can spend more time enjoying the lifestyle south of the River. For this reason, I think we’ll see a lot of downsizers show interest in the allotments, in addition to First Home Buyers.”
Mr Paz said local builder Plunkett Homes was offering design packages that complement the layout of the allotments.
