Media release

Stockland has launched its exciting new Eastside townhome project in the heart of the thriving $1.9 billion Highlands masterplanned community at Craigieburn with a special release of homes to registered buyers.

The 200 townhome project is located in a prime position in the growing community, with the Stockland Shopping Centre and community and sporting facilities, including the soon to open Splash Aqua Park and Leisure Centre, on its doorstep.

With a carefully designed masterplan by the award-winning Group GSA and a range of affordable townhomes designed and built by Metricon specialist division, the project is already generating a flurry of interest from keen homebuyers.

The first release features 15 three-bedroom townhomes, each set over two levels with a double garage, with some homes overlooking a leafy central park. Prices start from $387,000.

The stylish townhomes have been designed to capitalise on space and natural light with high quality inclusions and the latest features for modern, low-maintenance living, including stone bench tops, stainless steel appliances and high ceilings.

Gilbert Santana, Development Manager at Stockland, said each carefully-designed townhome was set on its own freehold title with individual landscaping to the front and rear.

“Eastside has a range of features that set it apart from other townhouse developments and we’re proud to be finally unveiling our plans for this landmark project,” Mr Santana said.

“This is the ultimate in low-maintenance living with every convenience within walking distance of your doorstep, including cinemas, cafes and restaurants, shops, a library, and future aquatic centre and medical centre.

“Meanwhile, high-quality landscaped parks throughout Eastside will give residents tranquil spaces to relax and catch up with friends and family.”

To be built over eight stages, construction is expected to begin in late 2017.

Mr Santana said Stockland’s townhouse developments were an important part of the company’s strategy to improve housing affordability throughout Melbourne and Eastside’s townhomes were priced to appeal to first home buyers.

“Eastside’s low-maintenance lifestyle, close proximity to public transport and easy connections to Melbourne’s CBD have sparked the interest of a wide range of home buyers, from young professionals to busy families to those looking to downsize,” Mr Santana said.

“Due to the strong enquiries being generated by this exciting new project, I would encourage anyone interested in calling Eastside home to register their interest now.”
