Work underway on ‘gated community’ GEELONG’S property market entered a new era with construction starting on its first gated community last month. National Lifestyle Villages’ Lakeside Lara sales representative Arlene Goddard said more than half of stage one was under offer, with residents ready to move in early next year. The $75 million estate offered 230 passive-solar-designed homes, a modern clubhouse, an indoor heated pool and spa, a tennis court, a bowls green, a theatre, a library and a bar, she said. The state would provide a safe and secure environment for “over-45-age” buyers. “Being an entirely new concept for Lara, people are excited about the prospect of downsizing, living in security and making new friends in a resort-style environment,” Ms Goddard said. NLV group chief executive Mike Hollett said the village offered value for money. “It’s the perfect time to get rid of your mortgage, reduce the costs of maintaining your home and upgrade to a better way of life,” he said. Mr Hollett described the gated development, in Watt Street, as an

chosen to downsize and enjoy a different lifestyle.” He said security staff would lock gates to the development between 6pm and 6am and screen visitors during lockdown.

GEELONG agents celebrated their industry body at a dinner last weekend. Real Estate Institute of Victoria Geelong chairperson Gina Tobolov said the annual dinner was “a great night and a bit of fun”. “It was a great chance for everyone in the Geelong area to get together and to recognise a year of hard work and great achievements,” she said. “We had guests from Melbourne, including REIV chief executive officer Enzo Raimondo and most of the board of directors. The guest list also included everyone from

administration staff to directors of agencies.” Ms Tobolov said this year’s awards ceremony marked 99 years of REIV involvement in Geelong real estate. “Next year we’re planning a huge centenary celebration with four events.” Ms Tobolov said award winners included: presidents award, Neil Laws; property manager of the year, Renee Reynolds; sales person of the year, Lesley Bourke; administrative person of the year, Amanda Gubic; agency of the year, Maxwell Collins; young achiever of the year, Kylie Aitken.

Slice of history still has potential T his Victorian property offers endless potential for a savvy buyer and a chance to secure a slice of Colac’s history.
