With interest rates at record lows, now is the perfect time to resettle the family in a new community.

Armstrong Estate in the Geelong region has much to offer families, downsizers and investors who value community and local living.

In this blog, we’ll discuss some of the benefits of moving to Armstrong Estate. Let’s take a closer look to learn more about building in this trendy new area!


Praise for Armstrong Estate

Armstrong Estate promises to be a truly wonderful place to live.

This community sets the benchmark for exceptional living in the Geelong region.

In 2017, it won Mas­ter Planned Com­mu­ni­ty of the Year, beating countless new estates across the country.

While in 2018, it also won the Community Engagement Excellence award, a nod to the team behind Armstrong truly listening to what the community wanted.


An active, connected lifestyle

An active and connected lifestyle is at the heart of Armstrong Estate—literally. The community has, at its centre, a deluxe sports and recreational precinct.

Here, residents can enjoy Club Armstrong, the district park, netball courts, cricket nets and sporting oval.

The park itself has such an impressive playground that it attracts families from surrounding towns and suburbs. While the kids play, parents can catch up with friends and family, while sitting back and enjoying the old red gums.

Throughout Armstrong Estate, there are plenty of green spaces and smaller parks, plus the wetlands and 30km of walking and cycling trails. There’s certainly enough open space to stretch your legs or walk the dog!

If all of these recreational spaces weren’t enough, Armstrong Estate also enjoys proximity to the surf coast, and destinations like Torquay and Geelong.


Tick off the essentials

While Armstrong Estate excels in providing residents with recreational opportunities, it also has all the essential facilities and services that a growing family needs.

The future neighbourhood shopping centre will be a short walk away, while the established city of Geelong is just a 10-minute drive up the road.

Also in the works for Armstrong Estate is a new community and childcare centre and secondary school. Mirripoa primary school is already open, as are the nearby Armstrong and Marshall railway stations.


Why build new in Armstrong Estate?

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to choose Armstrong Estate for your new JG King home. But why build new rather than buy established?

Building new is extremely cost effective, especially for families who want to invest in their future. You could be eligible for several government grants and concessions, including the First Home Owner grant, totalling up to $20,000.

You could also qualify for a stamp duty exemption of up to $13,000. Speak with a New Home Consultant at JG King to learn more about how you can save.


Armstrong house and land

The beauty of buying a house and land package is that you get to choose your home design and have it built specifically for you. You’ll get a never-lived-in, beautiful modern home that’s the perfect size and shape for your family.


Armstrong land for sale
