Have it all at Ridgelea

In a new video promoting Ridgelea, a drone sweeps over former farmland at Pakenham East showing the extensive groundwork now underway at Parklea’s most ambitious project to date.

Parklea General Manager Corporate Jarod Mills said 2024 will be an exciting year for Ridgelea as the estate takes shape and the first lots are titled.

Connecting Ridgelea: Infrastructure developments

The state government has also confirmed that construction of the suburb’s new train station will get underway this year connecting residents to the CBD, and VicRoads has approved plans for an important intersection with the Princes Highway.

Parklea will offer 3,000 lots at Ridgelea. When completed, the overall suburb will comprise 7,200 homes and feature a commercial town centre, two government primary schools, one non-government primary school, a government secondary school, three community centres and 44 hectares of parks and sporting reserves connected by pedestrian and cycling paths.

The Botanical Precinct: Now selling

The Botanical Precinct, encompassing one of the estate’s main entrance boulevards, is now selling.

Sales consultant Laura Phillips says the beauty of Ridgelea is that “everything you could possibly want for a high quality lifestyle is within reach”.

“With over 3000 residential lots with a range of sizes, townhouse developments and a retirement village we have singles, couples, growing families and retirees covered,” she said.

“Ridgelea is destined to become the heart of Pakenham East with the suburb’s town centre to be located right here in the estate. Residents will have easy access to supermarkets, specialty shops, a medical hub, food and entertainment outlets right at their door.

“At Ridgelea you will be living in natural surrounds with 20 per cent committed to open spaces. Take in scenic views from the estate’s hilltop park or explore one of the many walkways and nature trails towards the wetlands. There are also playgrounds, sporting facilities and community spaces throughout the state supporting a healthy lifestyle while also providing a habitat for local fauna.

“With a gradual rise to the Princes Highway, lots are mostly slope-free making it easy to select your preferred home design and builder.

“Meanwhile, Parklea’s practical design guidelines allow you to achieve your vision while the streetscapes remain pleasing to the eye. And if you’re planning to work from home, you can be rest assured you will have plenty of internet providers to select from with Ridgelea being an NBN connected community.”

50 years of building exceptional communities

Mr Mills said Ridgelea will carry on Parklea’s now 50 year commitment to sustainability, quality and a sense of community.

As with all Parklea estates, Ridgelea buyers will enjoy premium benefits such as Colorbond fencing to rear and corner lots, landscaping rebates and solar and security rebates.

“With a modern approach to community and a village feel, chances are you’re going to love Ridgelea,” promised Mr Mills.
