    Seacrest offers high views of Batavia Coast

    A total of 15 prime lots in Geraldton’s most successful land estate, Seacrest Estate, will go to auction on Saturday, December 10.

    The elevated level blocks, many with unrestricted ocean views, are expected to attract intense buyer interest from those seeking large residential block sizes of between 644sqm to 935sqm.

    Seacrest Estate is located about four kilometres south of Geraldton’s shopping and business centre, and overlooks the expansive white sandy shores of Tarcoola Beach.

    The estate is being heralded as Geraldton’s benchmark suburb and is testimony to the growing success of joint venture initiatives between the Department of Housing and Works and private developers - in this instance, Humfrey Land Developments, the biggest developer north of Perth.

    Housing and Works Minister Francis Logan said the Seacrest Estate offered purchasers the opportunity to secure land in an outstanding location, just minutes from the city centre.

    “The estate features high quality homes, outstanding ocean views and an innovative technology package,” Mr Logan said.

    “The rapid growth in land values at Seacrest is testament to the estate’s quality and investment potential.”

    Seacrest features high technology entertainment services such as optical fibre cables to the homes, which provide full access to the information superhighway, high-speed broadband, 10 channels of free-to-air cable TV and an option for an exclusive estate movie channel, with not a single television antenna in sight.

    When complete, Seacrest will also boast a good mix of community facilities, services and local amenities including a primary school, Catholic primary and secondary college, retirement village, shopping centre, sports grounds and a number of leisure and recreational areas.

    Much attention was given to the design and layout of Seacrest to ensure that it blends in with the beauty and liveability of the Geraldton region.

    “In addition, underground power lines have been installed and all public facilities including landscaped parks and gardens have been planned and positioned to meet the needs of all residents,” the Minister said.

    Almost half the 1,260 lots at Seacrest Estate have already been sold. The joint venture partners expect the estate’s ocean vistas and proximity to the town centre to generate strong bidder interest.

    The auction will be conducted by veteran Perth auctioneer, Ron Farris. It will begin at 10.30am on December 10.
