A slew of park-front homes will round out the $2bn Moonee Valley Park revamped townhouse precinct as it turns onto the home straight.
Buyers have already found the redevelopment a winning formula since the Feehan Row home hub first galloped on to the market last year, with about 80 per cent of the first stage sold.
Its second and final stage has just hit the market with a total of 44 townhouses, six fronting a park.
Being overhauled as a partnership between the Moonee Valley Racing Club and developers Hamton Property Group, Moonee Valley Park takes in the site’s history, dating back to 1883, and its racing heritage as home of the Cox Plate.
The new-look landmark will blend homes and commercial space with a botanical vibe, while adding extensive recreation areas to the centre of the famous racecourse.
Six homes in the latest release will have the recently finished 5000sq m Tote Park on their doorstep.
Another eight front soon-to-be-built Glenara Walk linear park, which will be adorned with river birch, jacaranda, Japanese windflowers and foxtail ferns chosen by Tract Landscape Architects.
All 44 townhouses will be three storeys tall and their interiors will reflect the greenery outside. Mim Design selected teal highlights, oak floors, and stone surfaces to bring the natural feel inside. Indoor-outdoor living underpins the architectural profile overseen by Rothelowman, which also prioritises natural light.
Hamton managing director Matt Malseed said the parks were a “fundamental part of the vision”, which buyers were responding to.
“A lot of the homes have ground-floor living with landscaped backyards or views over the parks,” he said.
Two- and three-bedroom homes set in a private mews start at $830,000.
Three and four-bedroom offerings on McPherson Street — a short walk from the parks — are priced from $975,000.
Glenara Walk townhouses start at $965,000, while homes fronting Tote Park start at $1.445m.
