The journey of Honeywood estate

After more than a decade of development Honeywood Estate in Wandi is nearing completion with only 29 lots left for sale.

Honeywood Estate is one of Satterley’s most sought-after communities just 30 minutes from Perth CBD and Fremantle.

When you visit Honeywood Estate the first thing you notice is a haven of green parklands, native bush, and beautifully manicured street verges.

More than 25 per cent of native bushland has been retained, and there are 10 kilometres of walkways and cycle paths to explore. You can meander through the trails hidden amongst the bushland, walk through the themed gardens or take the family to the adventure playground.

Satterley Chief Executive Nigel Satterley said Honeywood was the perfect choice for buyers who were looking for an established community surrounded by nature.

“What makes Honeywood unique is how the conserved bushland has been incorporated into the initial design of the estate,” said Mr Satterley.

“All homes are positioned within 250 metres of public open space to enhance the lifestyle of our residents and their families.”

“If you are lucky enough to be one of the final purchasers at Honeywood, it’s a place where you will feel at home from the moment you move in,” he added.

Discover Why Honeywood Feels Like Home

Take a look at how Satterley has designed and delivered an award-winning community that has made it what it is today.                                                     

Protecting the natural environment       

In the early stages of designing the estate, special consideration was made to conserving as much of the natural environment as possible. Since commencing works in 2010 Honeywood has slowly transformed into a suburban oasis for the community, while still protecting the environment. Some of the conservation initiatives included setting aside 28 hectares of wetlands as habitat for the endangered Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo, creating a natural orchid garden to protect a rare Spider Orchid, and retaining a range of mature trees in the parklands.

These are just some of the reasons why Satterley was awarded the prestigious Environmental Excellence Award by the Urban Development Institute of Western Australia.

The heart of Honeywood

Honeywood is a thriving community with an active residents’ group that keeps the community connected and engrossed in all things Honeywood. This is thanks to Satterley’s dedicated community development team who first established the Honeywood Residents Group, and provided the support it needed for it to prosper. Satterley’s team continues to do this today through its sponsorship and grants program to support their events such as the annual Christmas carols in the park. The team also assisted with setting up initiatives including the weekly farmer’s market and Food Truck Fridays.

The Satterley team also help new residents settle into their new life at Honeywood and provide a safe space for people to connect and network.

Inspired parks and playgrounds

When you live at Honeywood you are not living in any suburban estate. Housing is designed around green open spaces and natural bushland to make you feel like you are living in your own sanctuary. There are so many paths and little pockets of green parklands to explore including a state-of-the-art playground, dog agility park, and themed gardens such as Six Seasons Park.

The adventure playground is one of the newest play areas within the estate. It caters for all ages, is built based on ‘nature play’ concepts, and has a 30-metre flying fox. It was even endorsed by famous Australian parenting specialist Maggie Dent.

Honeywood is a dog’s paradise! There are kilometres of paths and trails to take your furry friend on a walk. If you want them to burn some energy off-leash then the dog agility park is the answer. The dog park is fully enclosed and has separate areas for small and big dogs.

Located at the entrance of the estate, Six Seasons Park was inspired by the Noongar people who traditionally hunted and gathered food according to the six seasons. The park is separated into each of the seasons and has interactive signage. Six Seasons Park is just one example of the level of thought and planning that has gone into creating these parks for the residents.

Planning for future growth

When choosing to live in any community one of the most important considerations is how it will cater for you now and well into the future. Honeywood has built infrastructure and amenities to allow for this future growth including Honeywood Primary School and the $4.8 million district playing fields and adventure playground. These were purpose-built to be used by the school and the community for events and recreation.
