It seems affordability is striking a chord with buyers at Stockland’s Sienna Wood, according to a National Land Survey by analyst Research4.

The survey ranked the masterplanned community development the third highest selling residential community in Western Australia for the December 2018 quarter.

Sienna Wood is a residential estate in the suburbs of Haynes and Hilbert which has been developed in partnership with the Department of Communities.

Two other Stockland communities made the top three – Calleya in Perth’s south east took first place and Vale in the Swan Valley came in at number two.

Stockland WA General Manager Residential Col Dutton said he was delighted by Sienna Wood’s impressive ranking, which was testament to Stockland and the Department of Communities’ commitment to creating a vibrant community that catered to all types of homebuyers.

“Sienna Wood’s top three positioning is recognition of Stockland and the department’s success in creating a well-planned and thriving community close to key infrastructure such as shops, schools and public transport,” he said.

“Currently Stockland’s most affordable community in WA, Sienna Wood has proved not only a popular choice for buyers making their first foray onto the property ladder, but also for growing families.”

Due to increasing customer demand, the popular Mooba Cafe, which overlooks the $4.8 million Shipwreck Park, is now open seven days a week.

The innovative Shipwreck Park, which features a 30m shipwreck within 6000sqm of enclosed play space comprising musical components, slides and a flying fox, is a family favourite.

Construction of a new $2.6 million Explorer Park is underway and its rock-climbing wall, green space and large tunnels will appeal to sporting enthusiasts.

“Another exciting new community initiative for local bookworms is the Sienna Wood Book Library. Keep an eye out for the blue letterbox outside the sales centre and look inside to collect a book to read or leave a book for someone else to enjoy.”

Sienna Wood’s numerous parks, walkways and playgrounds have proved popular with families, according to Mr Dutton.

Home sites at Sienna Wood start from $131,000 while house and land packages are priced from $272,912 for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home.

“We have house and land packages more than $100,000 below the latest REIWA figures showing the median house price for an established home in Hilbert is $382,500,” Mr Dutton said.

“WA is in the midst of a buyers’ market and there really is no better time than now for buyers thinking about making the leap to act.”
