The ecovillage contains 147 blocks of land ranging from 450sqm to 8,000sqm. The original development lots are now all sold out. You may find some limited land parcels of land (about 3) and some fully completed homes available for sale, from time to time.
Important note to Real Estate Agents & prospective Buyers and Renters
A small number of homes in Stage 1 (Creek) and Stage 2 (Valley Terraces) have by-law limits on the number of bedrooms they can contain. This control was negotiated with Council before development started, to limit the number of people and size of dwellings in the village, and to provide a mix of more affordable lots. It also ensures we do not have too many people using the central waste water treatment plant which was designed for a specific capacity (only). The Lots that are restricted to having a maximum of one or two bedrooms only, cost less to purchase initially when sold to their first buyer. Such Lots also pay lower rates for the body corporate levies, compared to other home Lots. Owners of a “1 bedroom” (maximum) Lots only pay levies at a contribution schedule rate of 80; compared to 90 for a “2 bedroom” (maximum) Lot; and compared to 100 for Lots with 3+ bedroom entitlements (all other Lots).
The LOT NUMBERS that have limited bedroom allowances are:
1 Bedroom Maximum Lots: 101, 104, 111, 118, 140, 142, 144, 145, 204, 214, 232, 238, 243, 249.
2 Bedroom Maximum Lots: 102, 103, 105, 113, 121, 126, 137, 141, 143, 209, 219, 223, 228, 236, 240, 244, 248, 256.
All other Lots are classed as open Lots with 3 or more bedrooms permitted, within the GFA maximums stipulated in the Code. This includes all Highlands Lots, which start with the number three (301 to 338) and are not impacted by such bedroom-related Code restrictions, as well as all Creek and Valley Terrace lot numbers other than those listed above as having limited bedroom allowances.
The Ecovillage by-laws include the Community Management Statement (CMS) and Architectural and Landscaping Codes. Inside the Creek and Valley CMS the code states: “If Your Lot is a residential Lot, You must cause Your Lot to be used principally for the construction and associated usage of a home. In no event shall a Residence be occupied by more individuals or have more bedrooms than permitted by the Code or the Law.” The restricted homes can still have a Study or small office space, but not a bedroom beyond their entitlement. The Lot Evaluations (available from Agents) show other restrictions, such as the building envelope, per Lot. The Village Design Panel assesses all design applications and amendments before Council certifiers assess home designs.
Agents that promote restricted lots as having or being able to have more bedrooms than allowable by the code are reminded that they may be subject to legal action by a new buyer or renter, if they misled people about the number of permitted bedrooms of any of the restricted Lots. Owners are also reminded that the relevant Body Corporate may breach owners for any Code non-compliance.
