There's no better location for an over 55's lifestyle village or independent living centre than gorgeous Mundaring. Nestled amongst natural surrounds in the Perth Hills, Mundaring is a suburb known for its tranquillity, community connections, and cultural events. So, if you're a developer seeking an opportunity that already has approvals in place, you need look no further. Centrally located close to parks, cafes, shops, doctors, chemist, the library, plus arts, crafts, and historical facilities, the potential to create something unique and appealing - in a place that sells itself as far as desirability - is truly unparalleled.

All you need is this site, and to create it - whether that be by creating vacant survey strata lots for people to build or to build the finished product in total. The position will sell itself. The site itself is north facing with lovely views over the valley, which offers a raft of sustainability integration options to the development, including passive solar, water recycling, and eco-friendly landscaping.

The current approval is for over 55's with each lot size ranging from around 250-400sqm, which is ample for those easy-care properties that downsizer and retirees often favour, without feeling cramped or overcrowded. As the population of Mundaring ages, it's to be expected that many people prefer to remain in their local community but without the burden of caring for the large, rambling properties the area is known for. When the development attracts, because it will, over 55's that still love to spend their days outside with their hands in the earth, there's even the space to include shared common land with multiple different uses, which is something you don't often find down the hill. There are very limited over 55's options currently available, so this one is not to be missed!

With almost half of the Shire of Mundaring being nature reserves and national parkland, it truly is a sought-after region for people of all demographics but particularly retirees and semi-retirees who still love pursuing sports and outdoor activities. Staying active is vital, and Mundaring offers everything from public gardens to wander through, bush trails to cycle on, endless birdwatching and photography opportunities, tennis, swimming, and horse riding, and an array of social clubs and other activities. Once developed, these lifestyle lots or homes will be snapped up quickly.

The demand for this type of product is highlighted by the fact that other sites in and around the area have sold out and there is a current waiting list for retirement home centres like the Yallambee Village in Mundaring and The Darlington Glen.

With this demand there are other possible opportunities for the site other than the current approval, especially for those organisations involved in the aged, dependent living or disability services space. Just use your imagination!

The land is situated on the northern side of Hartung Street immediately east of the intersection on Stoneville Road, Mundaring. Mundaring is a popular Hills suburb located approximately 34 kilometres east of the Perth CBD. More particularly the property is well positioned within 100 metres of the Mundaring Village Shopping Centre and enjoys ready access to all services provided to the Hills community of Mundaring.

The Mundaring town centre offers a raft of shops, businesses and services highlighted by the major Nationals such as: Coles, Woolworths, Aldi, Australia Post, Liquor Land, Cellarbrations, BWS, Bendigo Bank, Dome Café, Subway, Hungry Jacks, McDonalds, Dominos & KFC. There are many other services and providers, such as two Medical Centres, Eye Specialist, Podiatry, two Pharmacies, Pathology, Yoga, Men's Shed plus a wealth of local cafes, restaurants, bars and the Mundaring Hotel to name a few.

The site sits adjacent to The Mundaring Activity Centre Area in the north east section. The Shire of Mundaring is committed to revitalizing and renewing the Mundaring Town Centre, the Shire's civic, commercial and community hub. The Mundaring Town Centre will undergo planned improvement and change. The centre is set to grow and reinvigorate to ensure that it is an enviable and sustainable place which meets the living, shopping and working needs of the Mundaring community and its visitors into the future.

The intent of this Activity Centre Plan is to guide the future development of the Mundaring Town Centre as a District Centre under State Planning Policy 4.2 - Activity Centres for Perth and Peel. The Activity Centre Plan sets out application, infrastructure, subdivision, land use and development requirements including general and specific precinct - based requirements that will guide planning decision-making and shape the Mundaring Town Centre of the future."
