Our land is an almost flat, 16x35.5m block in Mandalay at Beveridge. The block is at the edge of the estate, which currently backs on to farmland. The land was titled when we bought it, and the developer was offering a $15,000 rebate on titled lots at the time, which meant that we were able to upgrade to the 568sq m block (we had been looking at blocks in the 504sq m range).
There isn't really much to say about the block itself. The Mandalay website says:
Welcome to Mandalay, an idyllic urban getaway with an ideal blend of metropolitan sophistication and sweeping landscapes. Where 40% of the development will be dedicated to an expansive network of open spaces, including an 18-hole golf course designed by golfing legend Peter Thomson.
Away from the hustle and bustle, yet close to all the amenities and facilities a family could ask for. It's destined to be a vibrant, friendly community that couldn't be further away from the everyday, and it could be yours. It's not everyday you find a hideaway like Mandalay.
Away from the everyday will be an oasis with land for sale in Beveridge a wide range of home sites to choose from, a clubhouse full of facilities, a community hall, retail outlets and much more. Surrounded by lush meadows and dramatic views, a significant portion of home sites will also overlook the golf course's panoramic fairways and greens.
Yet this idyllic hideaway is just a leisurely 40 minute drive on the freeway from Melbourne, or a mere 10 minutes from Craigieburn and 5 minutes from Wallan, with easy access to public transport as well.
Here at Mandalay, the clubhouse (Club Mandalay) has been designed to be the hub of the community, providing a natural meeting point with a wealth of proposed facilities like a café, swimming pool, tennis courts, a gymnasium, and much more. There'll never be a dull moment, or any lack of company.
Plans are also in place for a school, childcare facilities, exciting playgrounds and lush parklands to help foster the community spirit, where residents can get together.
An area has been set aside for a shopping precinct within Mandalay, with 5000 square metres of area dedicated to retail space large enough to accommodate facilities such as a supermarket and other specialty outlets. So you won't need to go far to get what you need!
A conveniently-located community centre with two meeting rooms, a kitchen, store rooms, a general purpose room is planned. Adjacent to the community centre will be a kindergarten and maternal health care centre.
