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

Gates open: Geelong councillor Cameron Granger and National Lifestyle Villages’ Mike Hollett officially launch the start of construction. “interesting model of living”. “It’s not a retirement village but a lifestyle village and we’re very clear about that,” he said. “A third of the people in our other nine villages have jobs and have

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.

his parcel of rural land presents a rare and valuable opportunity for a smart investor. The 1.52-hectare allotment (3.8 acres), with a dual zoning, is situated in the Barrabool Hills hamlet of Ceres. The zoning will allow subdivision of the front of the allotment, subject to council approval. A developer will recognise the potential of selling off the front part of the land while retaining the remaining three acres for their own dream home. The gently-sloping land adjoins the Frank Mann Reserve. Convenience is one of the key selling points with the property located within easy access from Geelong and the bypass. Selling agent Graeme Boyd encourages potential buyers to make an offer on this affordable "little piece of heaven" before the auction later this month.

his Victorian property offers endless potential for a savvy buyer and a chance to secure a slice of Colac’s history. The rambling brick building was erected in 1874, originally as the Prince of Wales Hotel, and later converted to a guest house and, more recently, a bed and breakfast. Selling agent Lisa Thomas says the home lends itself to a variety of uses including a residence, a reception centre, a quirky retail space or professional offices, subject to council approval. The property has 11 rooms including a formal dining room, a lounge, a sitting room, a rumpus room, a large kitchen and five rooms that could be used as bedrooms. Pressed metal ceilings, polished floors, leadlight windows, ornate fireplaces and timber dados are a few of the property's character features. The hotel’s original wine cellar is still accessible which would delight a wine connoisseur. An old-style, lush garden features a gazebo and a 23,000-lt water tank. Two more water tanks are closer to the main house. A bungalow with its own en suite is tucked away at the rear of the allotment. Also on the property is a large woodshed and an 8 metre by 16 metre work shed.
