The Block

The older part of the estate which is on the road shown on the east of the plan was released about two years ago.  It consisted of about another 35 blocks, most of which have large designer houses on although there are still a couple of vacant blocks.

This part of the estate had been released in mid 2011.  The cul-de-sac we were looking at is on a ridgeline looking out over the creekline reserve and the suburb.

 By the time we started looking there were only five blocks left lots 22, 23, 25, 26 and 27.

Initially we looked at lot 23 however being at the bottom of the hill and having a steep drop off on it, it was going to be a tricky one to build on.  It was also $20K more than the others.  Lot 22 being at the bottom of the hill was at risk from water run off down the street and was also the smallest block even though it was cheaper than the others.  That left lots 25, 26 and 27 which were all the same price.  We reviewed the services on the blocks and also the size of the covenant areas.  Lot 26 gave us the best option as lot 25 had a sewage line running down one side and lot 27 was smaller but had a bigger covenant area - so Lot 26 it was.

On 8th Mar we signed our lives away.
