Waterlea will include a 100m wide central green spine around a natural creek running through the development.

Buyer demand has resulted in a developer fast-tracking the third, $35 million stage, of its Walloon community.

Benchmark Property project marketing manager Karla Johnston said the “boom” at Waterlea was brought on by strong demand for developer RBG Service’s first two stages.

Ms Johnston said stage three, The Village, would be unveiled in the first quarter of 2019, with 34 house and land lots initially and more than 40 homes under construction.

“We’re confident the exceptional results will continue with The Village release because of its southeastern corner position giving buyers ease of access to the community’s facilities and the wider Walloon township,” she said.

“The Village is the most exciting release to date as it’s the closest precinct to the train station, school, township of Walloon and the extensive waterways parkland being constructed.

“It also fronts the first section of the creekside parklands which will have a path that runs through the beautiful landscape.

Ms Johnston said the 200th buyer would soon move into the community. She said buyers included relocating or downsizing second and third home buyers.

Best friends Jo Adams and Suzy Alvisio have bought identical homes in the development’s second stage and will soon live seven doors down from each other.

They said they fell in love with the community and were quick to decide on a design from builder Escape Homes with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and double garage.
