Stonehill – where we’d all love to live

By Star Weekly

It’s home to more than 900 residents. They’ve settled into the Stonehill lifestyle, a community of hike and bike tracks through picturesque parklands, with even more nature reserves and a local Catholic primary school in the pipeline.

Just as exciting is the highly anticipated construction of a $20 million retail precinct.

In the Bacchus Marsh suburb of Maddingley, Stonehill’s natural setting and an already established feel often surprises new visitors. Kids are kicking a ball, homeowners are pottering in gardens, walking their dogs or simply loving life.

Stonehill has 263-square-metre blocks available for just $168,000*, making them very attractive. That’s especially so when a $20,000 First Home Owner Grant (subject to eligibility criteria set by government) for regional areas is taken into account.

Larger 585-square-metre blocks are also available and attracting many families. Or a block close to the golf course may be preferred, one with views of the rolling hills ringing Bacchus Marsh. In fact, Stonehill has blocks and package options to suit almost all family and budget sizes.

With first-home buyers, growing families and even downsizers among its many new residents, Stonehill is also attracting Victoria’s leading builders.

There are choices of floor plans and packages to suit all kinds of households, life stages and budgets, along with finishes, upgrades and other design features.

Bacchus Marsh town centre’s supermarket, shops, banks, hospital and library, as well as a choice of schools, are all nearby. A train trip has commuters into the city in 40 minutes.
