Wilshire Group to deliver Mt Wellington housing development
Wilshire Group today launches Richmond, a new master planned community in Mount Wellington. Richmond has been designed in seven stages and will be completed over the next three to five years resulting in approximately 600 – 700 homes. Wilshire will complete stage one, 97 homes, throughout 2017 with sales commencing this weekend.
Homes initially come in two, three, four and five bedroom configurations across eight plan types, and purchasers may choose between three colour schemes.
Stage one Richmond homes are terraced houses on fee simple freehold titles with no body corporate. Instead, a Richmond Residents Society is in place to manage the communal facilities and future amenities.
Homes are sustainably built to stand the test of time, and come with a number of modern and energy conscious features such as LED lighting, eco timers on heated towel rails, water conserving plumbing and low electricity appliances including induction hobs.
Every home comes with warranties for builders, weather tightness, materials and appliances. They’re also built to sun, sound and seismic codes. Richmond homes are modern and stylish, lending themselves to personalisation and self-expression.
Richmond aims to bring quality homes and contemporary living to owner occupiers. Designed with community and lifestyle in mind, owners will be part of a vibrant area with shared spaces such as parks, herb gardens and fruit trees. It is proposed that later stages will include other facilities and amenities for all residents such as a gym, playground, spa tub, sauna or steam room, and a pilates and yoga studio. All these amenities will be owned and managed by the Richmond Residents Association.
“Richmond provides a new and contemporary place to live just 12 kilometres from the CBD.” said Christie Wrightson, Sales Manager, Wilshire Group.
“Richmond will be a great place for families, home owners, downsizers, young professionals and anyone looking to get a start in a fast growing central suburb.
“Construction in stage one is underway with some homes being completed and ready to move into from March 2017. Stage one will be progressively completed through 2017 and all finished by February 2018,” added Wrightson.
Home design complements the community. Home owners will enjoy well designed internal and external spaces with private courtyards and landscaping. Stylish kitchens with modern SMEG appliances add character to living and dining areas.

“We’ve designed Richmond as a neighbourhood community, a place for people to own their own home in a fast growing, desirable central suburb.
