No one wants to just live in a house on a street. We all want to live in a home in a community that thrives. This is the South Jerra vision.

A new village community, South Jerrabomberra is surrounded by spectacular vistas, beautiful parks, breathtaking nature strips and wonderful natural open spaces. It has an unbeatable location – just across from the ACT border – and amenities galore.

This creative, 1,500-home development offers individual blocks of freehold land starting at around 370 square metres and moving up in excess of 1,000 square metres, a rare opportunity indeed. More than 50 blocks have sold already, with homeowners having the freedom to build their dream home, their way, on property they own outright.

Travis Doherty, CEO of Village Building Company, says South Jerra is an idyllic community designed to attract families of all types – young families, professional couples, those wanting to downsize and investors.

“This is a village for families, however big, small, whatever they may be,” says Travis. “It offers a lifestyle that has something for everyone. Around 80 per cent of the development will be single, residential homes and about 20 per cent townhomes and terraces. Eventually, around 3,000 people will live in South Jerra.”

The development has been designed so it’s well-integrated and has a great deal to offer, including enormous choice.

“We’re finding that many buyers are attracted to owning their land, unlike in the ACT where you buy the right to a lease over a block of land for 99 years,” says Travis. “Now is the time to buy your very own block, and with the uplift in the market, prices will only go up from here.”

Another advantage of being in NSW is that first-home buyers can apply for a $10,000 grant and don’t pay stamp duty for land up to $350,000, with concessions in place between $350,000 and $450,000. Purchasers also save on land tax with principle places of residence.

Views from South Jerra across to the Brindabella Range, Canberra and Jerrabomberra are all gorgeous and, as with any prime development, location is everything. South Jerra is only 10 minutes to Queanbeyan, 15 minutes to Manuka and Woden, and 20 minutes to the city. “It’s so close yet you’re separated from the hustle and bustle,” says Travis.

Connection is important and major infrastructure work is underway, including a new 3.5 km road leading into the community and providing direct access for residents to existing amenities in Jerrabomberra and Queanbeyan. Amenities include supermarkets, petrol stations, schools, child-care facilities, a post office and medical centres.

“The facilities planned within South Jerra are second-to-none,” says Travis. “That includes a superbly designed Town Park and Community Centre and high-speed Internet. And even more amenities are coming.”

Future plans include the Queanbeyan-Palerang Council Sports Complex which will be a hub for Southern NSW, offering state-of-the-art facilities like hockey and soccer fields, basketball and volleyball courts, an indoor aquatic centre and infrastructure to provide high-speed streaming of live sporting events.

As with all of its developments, Village is applying environmentally friendly design principles to South Jerra. The estate has been designed to optimise solar passive design, and the streetlights will feature energy-efficient LED luminaires, meaning families will be comfortable all-year-round in their homes.

“The Community Centre we’re building will be a local hub and its design and construction also celebrates environmental design,” says Travis. “We’ll reuse materials from existing buildings to celebrate the heritage of the site. We’ll be dismantling the existing Woolshed piece-by-piece. It’s massive at about 800 square metres.”

Village Building Company is celebrating 31 years and today works across the entire Eastern seaboard. For more than three decades this award-winning residential builder and developer has stayed true to its original philosophy of celebrating community.

“Way back in 1988, founding CEO Bob Winnel had a desire to not just plonk individual buildings in an area that equated to nothing more than urban sprawl,” says Travis. “Village has always stood for creating thriving, sustainable lifestyles with affordable housing. We add value by developing communities that will be enjoyed by future generations.”

At South Jerra, individual blocks of land (370 square metres) start at $345,000. The Sales Office is open Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Turn off the Monaro Highway at Tralee Street and enter via the end of Alderson Place.
