Shoreline Villas will sit at the base of a natural peninsula at Lake Tuggeranong, with every home within walking distance of the parkland and the lake. By every measure, this will be an extremely desirable location.

It’s located in close proximity to Southpoint Tuggeranong, within walking distance of the Lake Tuggeranong Sea Scouts, Mundang Beach and the Mortimer Lewis Street Park and barbeque facilities and a dog park, and it is a five-minute drive to a plethora of restaurants, shops and schools.

Currently under construction, there are two, three, and four-bedroom villa style homes with six floorplans to choose from. The homes are being constructed by Nova Builders, who were the first builders in Canberra to introduce double glazing as a standard feature. Interiors are by Department of Design with their typically distinctive palette of modern colours and finishes, and the architects are Oztal Architects.

Oztal and Nova have a long history of working on projects together, such as Bellevue and Villa Nova in Coombs. Nova, Oztal, Department of Design and Independent Woden and Weston Creek are collaborating on the project, and have just released Stage 2 of the development to buyers.

Shoreline Villas are two-storey terrace homes which will have modern, pleasing interiors with features we have come to expect from Department of Design, including timber laminate flooring, double-glazed windows and sliding doors, reverse-cycle heating and air conditioning, AEG appliances and open-plan living.

There are three colour schemes in the kitchens and bathrooms with light, medium and dark colouring, all of which are attractive, modern stylish options.

Independent Woden and Weston Creek principal Mark Wolens said the Shoreline Villas are the best value for money homes he has seen in an established suburb for some time.

“These are a good, solid quality property, that are affordable,” said Mr Wolens, “and we’ve developed it so that it works for the Tuggeranong community.

“This is really affordable housing for the area. All the homes at Shoreline Villas have timber laminate flooring downstairs, they all have fantastic amounts of storage, and the bedroom sizes are well thought out. Because the design has been done so well, the things you don’t think of until you move in are already there,” he said.

The price range of Shoreline Villas from $475,000 to $790,000 is remarkably affordable in an established destination suburb such as Greenway. The display suite is Unit 24, on Mortimer Lewis Drive, Greenway, and is open for viewing.

“We’re expecting the first stage to be complete in the last quarter of 2020,” said Mr Wolens, “and stage two to be complete in the first quarter of 2021. The ACT Government’s Stamp Duty concession scheme makes it an even more attractive buy for eligible first home buyers.”

First-home buyers who meet the eligibility requirements stated on the ACT Government’s website will pay no stamp duty, a saving of around $10,000 on the purchase of a $475,000 home. Downsizers and pensioners also receive a concessional rate of stamp duty, which can be calculated on the ACT Government’s website.

How can there be a “natural peninsula” in an artificial lake?

The Villa Nova townhouses in Coombs are very ordinary looking with odd shaped floor plans. It is not encouraging that the same company is building these townhouses at Tuggeranong.

I wonder if potential buyers realise the lake is simply a drain?

Shoreline…until the government decides the actual shoreline is “underutilised”, decides to build apartments on the side of the road closer to the lake, and also thinks the lake is a bit too big, so reclaims some of it.
