Wirraway has set a new benchmark in the Hunter Valley, becoming the first residential community in the region to receive the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s esteemed green tick of approval for environmental excellence across the categories of waste, ecosystems, energy, materials, water and community.
Built by award-winning developer Defence Housing Australia (DHA), Wirraway draws inspiration from its natural surrounds to create a community that promotes sustainable living, healthy lifestyles and social interaction.
‘We want our communities to leave a positive legacy both socially and environmentally,’ said DHA Development Manager, Gully Coote.
‘Our vision for Wirraway is to create a beautiful, parkland neighbourhood that’s characterised by quality homes, breathtaking views, wide open spaces and shared community areas.’
With the first 51 homes to be ready by Christmas, this vision is well and truly coming to life. Spread across 58 hectares, Wirraway will one day be home to more than 500 families. With 16.8 hectares dedicated to open spaces, each home will be within 400 metres of a park.
‘Future residents will be able to cycle along the shared pathways, workout at the dedicated fitness station or enjoy the aviation-themed play equipment and half-sized basketball court,’ Gully said.
The contemporary housing will encapsulate innovation, best-practice building and sustainability, with DHA committed to using recycled materials and reducing waste, including using building materials that help to reduce air pollution.
The Wirraway masterplan also incorporates rejuvenation of the natural wetlands to provide a haven for native flora and fauna.
Land is for now selling in the first release of this exciting new development, with the opportunity to secure your dream block with a $5,000 deposit. Residents who purchase land in Wirraway will also benefit from an exclusive solar deal as part of Wirraway’s commitment to the environment.
