The Willows, the third and final neighbourhood in Botanical, will feature an expansive 25 hectares of planned parks and open space areas, wetlands, play areas, bike paths and walking trails for the community. The Willows is the central neighbourhood in the community and will provide a crucial link between the well-established Neighbourhood 1 to the north and the fast-developing Neighbourhood 2 (Evergreen) to the south
The new neighbourhood will be the largest in the community, comprising more than 1,300 lots of the 2,500 lot master planned community.
Botanical’s Development Manager, Jeremy Hughes, said that The Willows will become a central hub, with the neighbourhood centred around local parks, open space areas and the proposed local convenience centre.
“The Willows is an enticing prospect for future residents, but it will also play an important role in the community as a whole. It will include the road connection that will link the three neighbourhoods, as well as providing road connections to both Mickleham road and Mt Ridley Road. This road will ultimately connect through to Donnybrook Road in the north and through Craigieburn to the south.
“And thanks to the neighbourhood’s walking and bike paths, residents will easily be able to get to existing and planned amenities such as future sporting ovals, the future town centre, the local primary school, the childcare centre in Neighbourhood 1 which is currently under construction and more.”
Another notable feature is the abundance of established River Red Gum trees scattered throughout the community, Jeremy said. Open space areas have been intelligently designed to retain as many of the healthy established trees as possible, while a custom designed passive irrigation system will ensure their long term health remains vibrant and resilient.
“The Willows will also be home to Botanical’s largest park, as well as a wetlands area. And there will be playgrounds and play facilities throughout.”
Jeremy said that The Willows represented the final opportunity to buy in a well-regarded, well-designed and fast-growing community.
“Botanical is a premium masterplanned community in Mickleham and remains a popular choice for a range of buyers. There are lot types and products to suit all different requirements and preferences: townhouses, lots ranging in size from 223sqm to 540sqm and larger lots over 1500 square metres in size.”
There are now more than 2,000 people who call Botanical home and it is great to see the close interaction amongst residents at the regular community events.
For those who aren’t yet ready to buy, a new display village will showcase an extensive array of homes – 24 in all from some of Victoria’s most reputable builders. It will be located in the Evergreen Neighbourhood along Mt Ridley Road and is planned for completion in 2024.
The first opportunity to buy in The Willows will be in Stage 25, and will include a limited release of between 10 to 20 lots.
