INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY IN THE FIRST DECADE OF A BUSTLING TOWNSHIP
House Sold - Googong NSW
Investors understand getting in at the ground level of an opportunity is always best. The master-planned township of Googong covers 780 hectares of former grazing land and will take around 20 years to complete. Around 18,000 people – living in approximately 6,200 dwellings – will one day call Googong home. The Googong master plan creates 5 distinct but connected neighbourhoods, and each neighbourhood will have its own character while still being linked to the wider township – with the hub of activity centred around The Clubhouse. As a township, Googong offers all the amenities and advantages of modern living – everything an investor could want in terms of capital growth. While the community will evolve and change over time, the guidelines set up at the planning stage will ensure that Googong provides a strong sense of community and a sustainable way of life. From their own website “this will ensure a level of quality is maintained and help protect your investment” in the home.
The uniqueness of this township cannot be under-estimated. Googong has already established itself with an advertising campaign highlighting the identity – as the locals are called “Googonians”. Their Ministry of Health recommends exercise and outdoor activities, as over 23% of the Googong area is dedicated to open space and high quality landscaping. In developing the parklands, revegetating areas will occur with native species, and endangered native grasslands will be protected, along with habitats for the local animal and bird life.
Googong is located near Googong Dam on Old Cooma Road, just beyond Jerrabomberra, and only 20-25 minutes from Manuka shopping precinct and Canberra’s Parliament House. (The Googong website shows 26 minutes to Canberra CBD.) The township of Googong is quite separate from the Googong Dam and its Foreshores. No development will take place within the Foreshores area. The picturesque site is characterised by gently undulating slopes and plans, and dominated by the dramatic mountain backdrop of the Molonglo Ranges.
Club Googong has a five lane 25m heated pool and an outdoor splash deck for smaller children. There is a gym, as well as tennis courts, children’s playgrounds, amphitheatre, barbeque areas and boadwalks – all just a short walk from this investment property. Neighbourhood community centres, an indoor sports centre, and recreational facilities including 7 sports fields, 6 netball courts and 13 local parks are all part of the overall plan.
