SYDNEY, 22 OCTOBER 2019
Sky-high Sydney property prices have been blamed for generations of families living further apart. But one new Western Sydney community is offering the kind of choice and price points for new homes that have the potential to bring families back together.
Frasers Property Australia’s Fairwater community has transformed the site of the former Ashlar Golf Course, less than 1km from Blacktown CBD, into a masterplanned community home to families of all types and generations. More than 500 families already live at Fairwater with access to lakes, waterways, cycling tracks, parkland and regular community events.
Rolando Molina, 57, is one of several future residents who has purchased a brand-new home at Fairwater so he could live close to his family. Rolando recently purchased a 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom Garden home at Fairwater and plans to live there with his wife and his daughter after it is completed in 2020.
“Fairwater was recommended by my daughters’ fiancé who bought a townhouse at Fairwater a year ago,” Rolando says.
After the wedding, Rolando’s daughter will move into her new home, just 200 metres away.
“She’s my only daughter and I can see her almost every day and maybe look after the grandchildren. That is the rule – you must look after the grandchildren,” Rolando says.
“It is a good place to watch our family grow and a nice area. We plan to retire there.
“We drove around Fairwater and we immediately liked the atmosphere and the environment. It has a quiet atmosphere, it is close to the shops, the train station and the hospital. The location is so convenient,” Rolando says.
The home designs at Fairwater range from two-bedroom homes through to four bedrooms with a separate self-contained studio loft. Prices range from $635,000 to $1,090,000. Different sized homes can be found in the one street, which creates a diversity not only in the streetscape, but also among the residents who live there.
George Massoud, Design Director, Frasers Property Australia says the creation of multi-generational living spaces is a key feature of a selection of Fairwater home designs.
“Our approach has always been about creating a real sense of community and a big part of that is always ensuring a diverse mix of housing types,” Mr Massoud says.
“It’s not a cookie cutter approach. We ensure we have spaces where downsizers can live in the same community as younger, growing families. This is something that was always envisioned at Fairwater. It’s unique in the Blacktown area and in Sydney.”
To complement the diversity in the masterplan, Frasers Property also coordinates a full calendar of community events at Fairwater to help new residents to get involved in their neighbourhood and make connections. These include welcome barbecues, community gardening days and seasonal events.
Sarah Melody, Community Development Manager – Fairwater at Frasers Property Australia says Fairwater encourages active community links across all generations.
“We want to provide the type of choices and opportunities for Fairwater residents to live the life they want, with natural connections to their neighbours and their surroundings,” Ms Melody says.
“We often see the Fairwater residents chatting with their neighbours, riding a bike with friends or joining in the free Live Life Get Active fitness classes held in Fairwater Park each weekday.
“Our goal at Fairwater is to help connect and grow the neighbourhood to ensure that a vibrant, social and connected multi-generational community thrives for years to come.”
Fairwater’s homes are surrounded by lush gardens and waterways and residents can easily access the train at Blacktown and Marayong stations. The Fairwater Display Village and Sales Centre is open 11am to 4pm, seven days a week. Visit www.fairwaterliving.com.au or call 13 38 38 for more information.
