We are very excited to say the construction is complete for the NEW Settlers Stage, with the asphalt & line marking recently finished and also passing the Council inspection. With over half of this stage sold or under offer we can’t wait for the future homes to begin construction soon in this stage and the neighbourhood begin to take shape.

This isn’t the only news here at Ploughmans Arms, there are many homes under construction in our existing streets and a number of people have recently moved into their beautiful homes as well. Did you know we only release a small percentage for investment purposes of which have already sold, that means the majority of homes are owner occupied here at Ploughmans. With almost 60 households now being lived in and at least another 54 currently under construction, it is easy to say our streets are transforming into the special neighbourhood and community that we always hoped and planned for.

With the Settlers Stage finished construction, we anticipate all lots in this stage to be Titled in April 2019.
