With Christmas and New Year approaching, a Chittering land developer has released an “end of year” incentive to capitalize on pent up demand for quality well priced land within easy commuting distance from Perth.
The just released end of year incentive at Chittering Springs Estate will provide buyers with $25,000 off the purchase price for offers submitted by December 31.
The five acre blocks (two hectares) at Chittering Springs are 35 times bigger than the average suburban block and start at just $245,000.
“The end of year offer means that a few quick buyers will be able to purchase a “super-sized” homesite near Perth for just $220,000,” said the project manager for Chittering Springs, Tony Manners.
Chittering Springs Estate is a land development nearly as big as Kings Park, less than an hour’s drive from Perth.
The estate provides a choice of blocks with panoramic valley views across the Chittering Valley or private, timbered homesites surrounded by tall trees.
It is spread over 318 hectares and is less than 30 minutes from Midland and Joondalup.
“Chittering Springs is a peaceful country retreat near to all the modern facilities of city living which I think is why it is proving to be so popular,” Mr Manners said.
The estate is designed to appeal to young families, empty nesters and people moving from busy suburbs looking for a bigger block.
“They’ve worked out they can buy a four bedroom two bathroom home package with space for a swimming pool, tennis court, formal and informal gardens, a paddock for horses, a sweeping drive and parking for lots of cars, for around $450,000.
That’s a fraction of what you would pay for a house and five acres of land in the suburbs.
“At Chittering Springs you can commute to work and be right next door to world class schools, shopping, vineyards and restaurants in the Swan and Chittering Valleys.
“The blocks have also proved popular with fly-in, fly-out workers because they are near the airport,” he said.

The developers of Chittering Springs, a land development nearly as big as Kings Park, have brought forward the release of 34 new lifestyle blocks in response to demand for land in the area.
Potential buyers who have already registered their interest will be given priority when the new lots are released this week in the burgeoning Chittering Valley area.The release includes eight “super-sized” blocks which are up to six hectares (fourteen acres) in size and are priced from $245,000 to $305,000.
These blocks are 100 times bigger than the average suburban block.
The release also includes 26 two hectare (five acre) homesites, each 35 times larger than the average suburban block, priced from $245,000.
The new release offers a choice of homesites with panoramic views across the Chittering Valley, or private, timbered homesites with tall trees.
Chittering Springs is spread over 318 hectares of land, less than 30 minutes to Midland or Joondalup and an hour from Perth.
“There’s a huge demand for quality, well priced, land within an hour’s drive from Perth”, said the project manager for Chittering Springs, Tony Manners.
Chittering Springs, which will eventually comprise 108 lots, is being developed in stages with the first half almost sold out.
The development is designed to appeal to young families, empty nesters and people moving from busy suburbs looking for a “tree change” less than an hour from Perth.
Most of our buyers are people looking for a country lifestyle near the city.
We’ve also had a lot of interest from people in the northern suburbs looking for a country retreat.

Property buyers snapped up new release blocks in Chittering so fast after they went on sale on Saturday, June 16th, that developers were stunned.
The blocks almost sold out that weekend and just five blocks were still available last week.
The developers said the overwhelming demand for land had forced them to bring forward the release of stage one of the Chittering Springs by a month.
Project manager Tony Manners said the response from buyers showed Perth was suffering a real estate shortage. “We were overwhelmed with enquiries when we launched the development in May with hundreds of perspective buyers looking to buy land now”, Mr Manners said.
The mostly two-hectare (five acre) blocks varied from $285,000 to $315,000 and, when finished, the development will include 108 blocks.
Mr Manners said the picturesque Chittering region was one of WA’s best kept secrets.
“Most of the buyers seem to be people who want a ‘tree change’ and locals who like a country lifestyle near all the modern facilities”, he said.
Chittering Shire CEO Kenn Donohoe said he was not suprised by the demand and there were another about 33 subdivisions either approved or waiting approval, potentially opening up over 3000 more blocks in Chittering.
The sub-division boom has also hit the Gingin shire. Local property expert Tim Cabassi said the 74 lots in Marchmont Estate had sold out, and the 86 lots in stage one and two of the Cheriton Country Estate were also gone.
Eighty lots were recently released in the newest sub division, Honeycombe estate, and Mr Cabassi said only 12 were left to sell.
Developers of the new Chittering Springs Estate in Chittering Valley decided to bring forward the first release of land following a flood of buyer inquiries after an article in the West Australian Real Estate section.
Project manager Tony Manners said they recieved hundreds of inquiries bought forward the release to last weekend, which resulted in six of the ten blocks in Stage One selling. Another ten blocks have since been released.
The development will eventually comprise 108 lots spread over 318ha, an area nearly the size of Kings Park, minutes from Bullsbrook and Midland, and less than an hour’s drive from Perth.
“We were overwhelmed with inquiries when we launched the development in May with hundreds of prospective buyers looking to buy land now”, Mr Manners said.
“Rather than create a situation with some buyers queuing up to buy, or wrestling against each other to purchase blocks, we brought forward the first release of land.
“We had planned to release the first stage in July but put the blocks on the market last weekend to help satisfy the demand.”
The 2ha blocks vary in price from $285,000 to $315,000 and have panoramic views over rolling pastures and valleys.
Mr Manners said Chittering Springs had been three years in the making. The developers bought the land in 2004 and, since then, worked flat out with the local council on planning, heritage investigations, ecological studies and WA Planning Commision approvals.
“We were keen to preserve as much native vegetation as possible so the land not only looks beautiful, but people can wake up to the sound of twittering birds and the breathtaking sight of the bush every morning’, Mr Manners said. “The Shire of Chittering is one the prettiest in the state with vineyards, orange groves, racehorse studs, and sheep and cattle properties.
“Award-winning wineries and orchards are intermingled with lart forests of wandoo, marri and jarrah and a huge variety of wildflowers. The Chiitering Valley is on of WA’s best kept secrets on the doorstep of Perth.”
Mr Manners said a key driver of demand had been the relaxed, country lifestyle with clean fresh air and quiet roads, not far from the city.
“Most of the buyers seem to people who want a “tree change” and locals who like a country lifestyle near all the modern facilities of city living.
“We’ve also had a lot of interest from people in the northern suburbs looking for a country retreat.
“These people are planning to commute each day to Perth, or to work from a home office with internet access”, he said.
A development in Maddern Road, Chittering, could attract more than 100 new families to the area, according to the developers.
The first stage of the Chittering Springs, which covers a land area nearly as big as Kings Park, is expected to go on sale in July.
It is understood the development will eventaully include 108 blocks, some as large as two hectares.
Project manager Tony Manners said the developers believed the sub-division would help ease Perth’s land shortage.
He said blocks in stage one would start at $285,000 and would be released as the development progressed.
“The developer has done much to protect native wildlife and natural bushland and has worked closely with the council to preserve part of the development as public access and nature reserve”, Mr Manners said.
Civil engineering works for stage one should be finished by the end of June.
The development is aimed at young families, first homebuyers and suburban residents lokking for a lifestyle change.
“Land like this is rare and values in the area have been rising rapidly”, Mr Manners said.
“I would expect the demand for the first blocks released to be very strong.”
Lots more than 35 times bigger than the average suburban block will go on sale in July at Chittering Springs, near the Spring Valley.
They will cost from $285,000 to $315,000, making Chittering Springs one of the most affordable land developments near Perth.
The estate, less than an hour’s drive from the city, will eventually comprise 108 blocks.
As the lots become available, buyers will be able to choose between undulating parkland, cleared or timbered blocks.
A few blocks will have a winter creek or stream.
Chittering Springs project manager Tony Manners said the land was released this week and three buyers had already shown interest.
Each of the 2ha country estate blocks offers privacy near the Walyunga National Park and Swan River.
Each also has sweeping views, no time limit to build, sealed bitumen roads, and underground power, telephone and internet access.
“Chittering Springs offers clean, fresh air; quiet, winding roads and a relaxed, country lifestyle, without being far from the city,” Mr Manners said.
“We are catering for locals who want to live in the country or people who want a tree change.”

Described as a country retreat enjoying panoramic views of rolling pastures and valleys at the edge of the Swan Valley, Chittering Springs is a new residential estate offering a rural lifestyle within reach of the city.
Residents will enjoy big blocks of 2ha – about 35 times bigger than the average suburban block – on an estate nearly as big as Kings Park with bush and farmland surrounds.
Project manager Tony Manners said the development, due for its first release in July, was one of the most exciting in or around the Swan Valley in 15 years. He said it was a landmark development that would also help ease Perth’s land
“Chittering Springs is a peaceful country retreat less than an hour from the bright lights of the city”, Mr Manners said.
The development, between Bindoon and Muchea in the Chittering Shire, will eventually comprise 108 blocks on 319ha. Bullsbrook and Midland are close and Perth is less than an hour’s drive. In the neighboring Swan Valley are schools, shops, sporting and medical facilities, restaurants and some of WA’s finest vineyards.
Mr Manners said blocks in Stage One Would would be priced from $285,000, making Chittering Springs the most affordable land development near Perth, offering a country lifestyle close to city conveniences.
It was designed to appeal to young families, first homebuyers, emtpy nesters and those moving from busy suburbs looking for a tree change.
He said the developer, Chittering Springs Estate would protect as much fauna and flora as possible and had worked with the local council to preserve nearly a quarter of the land as public access and nature reserves.
“Living on your own five-acre(2ha) country estate at Chittering Springs means that you can also enjoy all the conveniences of city living such as underground power, telephone and internet access”, he said. “This development is unique, land like this is rare, and values near the Swan Valley have been rising rapidly. I’m expecting demand for the first 10 blocks in State One to be very strong so people should register their interest now.”
“I think it will be second and third-time buyers who are attracted to these blocks and while the capital growth in the area has been fantastic, it is the lifestyle that is the big attraction”, he said.
“Also perth is embracing the concept of commuting, so we are starting to see what they are doing in the Eastern State, with people travelling further to work so they can live is a nice environment. Travelling an hour to work in Perth is not beyond the realms of possibility.”
