Huntlee is the first new town to be built in the Hunter Valley in over 50 years and, as it enters its sixth year of development, things show no signs of slowing down for the rapidly growing town in the heart of wine country. With a brand new shopping centre due to open mid-year and other facilities such as the Huntlee Tavern now under construction, Huntlee’s current population of over 1000 will have all the contemporary facilities a growing town needs, right on their doorstep.
Comprising of four residential villages surrounding a 200 hectare Town Centre precinct, Huntlee will eventually include approximately 7,500 homes, with a population of around 20,000 people. To date, over 400 homes have been completed in Huntlee’s first village, Katherine’s Landing. Named for Katherine Busby, a member of the Hunter’s first wine-growing family, the look and feel of Katherine’s Landing is tied strongly to the themes of viticulture and celebrates the history of the local area.
Land within Katherine’s Landing is affordably priced with sizes up to half an acre and starting at just $165,000.
“The diversity of product on offer in Katherine’s Landing means there is something on offer for just about everyone at every stage of life,” says Huntlee Sales Director, Robert Crane.
“There’s opportunities for first home buyers to purchase a turnkey, house and land package for under $450,000, which is a great entry point into the market.”
Located just off the Hunter Expressway, Huntlee is roughly 20 minutes from the regional centres of Maitland, Cessnock and Singleton, and only 45 mins from Newcastle.
Freeway connections make commuting a breeze for Huntlee residents, with strong employment prospects in the resources, health, education and training, retail and hospitality sectors, to name a few. The new Coles owned shopping centre, due to open mid-year, is itself set to create over 100 retail jobs. A small number of tenancy opportunities are also currently available in the complex, for people interested in opening their own business.
“There are a wealth of opportunities currently available for both commercial developers and commercial tenants to come together in the Huntlee Town Centre and take advantage of a rapidly growing customer base not only in Huntlee but also in surrounding suburbs,” says Mr Crane.
Those seeking inspiration for their new home may also find a trip to Huntlee worthwhile, with 18 brand new display homes set to open in Huntlee’s Display Village 2.0 by June. Featuring a number of nationally awarded and emerging local builders, the new display village will take a one-stop-shop approach to home building and draw inspiration from current trends and technology to ensure every visitor takes something away from the experience. The Mantra 28 by Metricon Homes will be the first to open in the new display village, set to open its doors in March.
