Large block size
Most blocks at Palmview Forest are around a half acre (average 2,000m2) so you are going to have a decent amount of space to do what you want. These are typically up to 3 times larger than today’s standard urban block!
Design guidelines are being produced individually for every block. These will include information on suggested house placement and orientation to make the most of the environment. It will also provide suggestions on construction types that would be good for the block. The idea is to ensure the neighbourhood has an individual character and that neighbours don’t build too close to each other. The big benefits of these guidelines is to give you peace of mind with regards your investment in Palmview Forest; to ensure you can enjoy your block without needing to overly worry about the proximity of your neighbours; and to allow you to look at the neighbourhood without any hidden issues allowing you to make a fully informed purchase.
The overall nature of the estate is that it is a series of ridges and rises with a creek that flows around the perimeter and edges the green belts. Water drains from the land quickly and in the history of the site there has never been any record of flooding. When you build at Palmview Forest you can do so with peace of mind.
Water and Sewage
The large block sizes means that it is not viable to connect to town water or sewage. Every house will need a water tank and a household sewage treatment plant. If you live in the suburbs and want to make the move to embrace the bush then this is something you will need to consider. We can help explain the various options so please contact us if you have any questions. While not having town water or sewage does add to the initial construction costs, there are no on-going water or sewer bills. You also don’t have the water additives such as chlorine and other chemicals which some say have been linked with various health issues. And this is the most environmentally sustainable option as well because the water that falls on the block stays on the block.
Undulating land and green belts
Palmview Forest is a series of distinct ridges that are divided by lush green-belts. While the development itself is large, each neighbourhood is segmented and presented as small pockets which set a personal and private tone. Each small neighbourhood will have its own unique feel to it. You will feel that your neighbourhood only consists of a handful of people you’ll get to know rather than a large group of strangers.
There really is a wide selection of lifestyle choices available at Palmview Forest so it is important to register now and get in early to make sure you get exactly what you want.
Your closest neighbours will be the wide variety of fauna that can be found on the site. From the rare Richmond Birdwing butterfly to possums and bandicoots or the kingfishers that are the image chosen for Palmview Forest, there will be no shortage of native friends.
Palmview Forest has been designed and constructed to help protect the native fauna as much as possible. While trees on blocks have been removed, the natural habitat has been carefully managed to ensure the green-belts and surrounds provide a good living space for the ‘critters’. Rope bridges will provide connectivity for them between green-belts.
At Palmview Forest we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and all aspects of habitat management have taken a front seat role with regards the planning of the estate. We hope that this approach is fostered by all who buy at Palmview Forest and that everyone gets to share in the excitement and interest in living closely with nature.
Must see for yourself
It’s all very well trying to describe the peaceful mood and relaxing ambience that each neighbourhood exudes but words and pictures don’t do it justice. If you are even half interested then please take a short break and come and visit us and see for yourself. Allan can answer any questions you might have or you can stretch your legs and let the ambience of the site do the talking.
Palmview Forest has a philosophy of keeping the neighbourhoods small and personal and actively promoting an interconnection between the residents and the environment. One important benefit to residents is that the estate itself will have a consistency of design and presentation that small developments can’t effectively manage. Another benefit is that each neighbourhood will be themed and planned on its own merits yet still fit nicely into a larger community model. It also means that the development makes use of a broad resource of experts and engineers helping to both protect the investment of the residents and also to protect the environment.
Landscaped entry, street-scaping and kerb and channel roadways
The roadways and infrastructure throughout Palmview Forest are all fully designed and landscaped to bring a sense of tranquillity. The entry into the estate will have a central median strip to present a visually appealing wider access. Placing a central median strip also makes entering and exiting the estate easier and safer.
The entry statement is artistically designed highly visible presenting a real sense of destination for Palmview Forest. When you arrive home the landscaping and street-scaping will feel like a deep and relaxing breath of fresh country air.
The roads throughout Palmview Forest will all be wide enough to manoeuvre a boat trailer or caravan and have kerb and channel which both look appealing as well as providing controlled drainage. They will present an urban touch to a rural environment.
