A RARE land release in Jamberoo is attracting great interest with about 200 inquiries for the 31 blocks in the new Chapel Hill development.
Miltonbrook Real Estate’s Jennifer Macquarie and her brother Lawson Fredericks, themelves sixth generation Jamberoo residents, are auctioning the estate on Sunday, August 17.
Mrs Macquarie said the historic Catholic stone church overlooking the site was a primary feature of the landscape and was the inspiration for the subdivision’s name.
She said the new development would be a massive boost to the village in the long-term, bringing a range of new families to the area.
“There is a shortage of residential land across the Illawarra, and vacant lots in Jamberoo are as rare as hen’s teeth,’’ Mrs Macquarie said.
“The lots range in size from 800sqm to 2500sqm, which is relatively large these days and that is very appealing, particularly in this lovely country setting.
“Future residents of Chapel Hill are within walking distance of the village shops and café, the school and the golf club, and at the same time get to enjoy fantastic rural and escarpment views.
“It really is the best of both worlds,” she said.
The auction will be a ‘published reserve’ auction.
Pricing starts at $315,000. The auction starts at 11am at Jamberoo School of Arts.
