The Jindee estate in Jindalee has welcomed its first residents, who made the sea change from Melbourne to enjoy their retirement on Perth’s northern coastline.
With more residents expected to move in early this year, the Estate Development Company (EDC) owned estate is now growing into the community that has been envisioned for more than a decade.
Claude Duthill said that he and his wife Marie-Caroline were excited to move into their new home in in early January and they strongly believed in the unique Jindee concept.
“We first came out to Perth to visit my cousin and loved the weather, then after a drive along Marmion Avenue we thought ‘maybe we should move here?’” Mr Duthill said.
“Knowing that one day I may rely on public transport, with some research I came across Jindee, which is located close to the train station in Butler.
“I see the potential here and believe it will be worth money in the future – especially with design standards in place across the estate – and for us it was much better value than the small cottage houses we looked into in Melbourne.
“Where else can you be so close to the beach and have everything within walking distance?”
Estates Development Company (EDC) Chair Fiona Roche said that there have been a number of enquiries from potential buyers from the eastern states who are interested in a relatively affordable opportunity to live along the coast.
“As the first Jindee homes are being completed, you can now really see the characteristics that set the estate apart – it is exciting to see the coastal community we have envisioned for so long coming to fruition,” Ms Roche said.
“From the very beginning we have focused on encouraging the connection between the community and the coastline and we have been committed to our design standards – these are key factors that we believe make Jindee special and can contribute to long-term property values for buyers.”
