Stockland’s Newhaven community in Piara Waters is nearing the end of an era with just 12 lots remaining for sale with more than 5,500 people now calling the masterplanned community home.

Buyers have been quick to snap up the last parcels of land, with remaining blocks starting at $154,000.

Col Dutton, General Manager for Stockland WA, said the community’s popularity was testament to the outstanding lifestyle on offer, the affordability of its attractive home sites and easy access to a wide range of services and facilities.

“This is the end of an era for Newhaven and I’m extremely proud of our award-winning community that is known for its family-friendly environment and liveability,” Mr Dutton said.

“Buyers have one last chance to snap up a block of land and realise their dream of building a brand new home in beautiful surrounds within close proximity to all of life’s necessities.

“Buyers can choose from lots located within walking distance of parks, schools, shops and public transport.”

House and land packages with some of Perth’s leading builders are also available and are priced from $292,300 for a three-bedroom home.

According to the latest figures from the Real Estate Institute of WA, the median house price of a home in Piara Waters is $480,625, making the house and land packages well below established home prices in the suburb.

Mr Dutton said Newhaven offered excellent value for a wide range of customers, from first-home buyers, to downsizers and investors, and the recent changes to the State Government’s Keystart low deposit home loan scheme will help make it easier for buyers to realise their home ownership dreams at Newhaven.

“It is fantastic news that since 1 July income thresholds for borrowing from Keystart were lifted by $15,000 for singles and by $20,000 for couples, which will help more and more West Australians buy a home,” Mr Dutton said.

“The changes mean that for those in the metropolitan area looking to buy a home valued up to $480,000, the new income limits are $105,000 for singles, $130,000 for couples and $155,000 for families.

“With this much welcomed incentive, Newhaven offers an opportunity to build a new home that meets your exact needs for a more affordable price than in the surrounding areas.”

Since Newhaven was established almost 15 years ago, buyers have been drawn to the community’s lifestyle benefits including walkways and bike trails, as well as the Piara Waters sports oval and pavilion, which is a world class sporting facility for local football and cricket clubs.

Newhaven is located less than one kilometre from the new Stockland Harrisdale Shopping Centre and is within walking distance to schools, including Harrisdale Primary and High School, Piara Waters Primary School, Aspiri Primary School and public transport.

A new fully-enclosed, dog park featuring small and large dog zones with drinking fountains and agility equipment has been a popular attraction.

Free dog training classes in partnership with the RSPCA are also offered.

The famous $2.5 million Robot Park with its flying fox, robot-themed cubby house, climbing structures and tunnel slides and shaded seating and picnic area is a popular destination for families.

Newhaven is an established, vibrant community located 28 kilometres south of the Perth CBD.
