04 May 2013 New community the heart of Voyager Point

Defence Housing Australia (DHA) has today announced the release of its latest residential development in the heart of Voyager Point. Heartwood, is a masterplanned community, that will offer Sydney-siders a safe, peaceful and affordable corner to call home.

“This city is forever growing, particularly westwards,” Managing Director Peter Howman said. “Finding a tranquil location like Heartwood in the hustle and bustle of Sydney is a dream come true for many families.”

The new community is enveloped by bushland that stretches southwest for more than 70km, providing a location that is protected from further urbanisation.

“Pristine bushland surrounds the development, making Voyager Point justifiably a highly sought-after location to live in,” Mr Howman said. “It will allow the residents to enjoy the enchanting waterways and scenic riverside walks, but it also has excellent access to amenities, arterial roads, motorways and public transport.”

Careful planning of Heartwood has allowed for 120 generous-sized land lots. These will be released in three stages. DHA will retain 42 lots for Defence members and their families, with the rest to be sold to the open market.

“Heartwood is ideally situated for Defence members serving at the nearby Holsworthy Barracks,” Mr Howman said. “Its location will facilitate shorter commutes for Defence members, allowing them to spend more quality time with their families and in their community - something we all aspire to.”

“Heartwood is named after the inner, darker section of a tree trunk; the spine and strength of the tree,” Mr Howman said. “Just like this vital part of the tree, we expect that this development will form the backbone of a new thriving community.”

DHA’s primary function is to supply housing and related services to Defence members and their families in line with Defence operational requirements. DHA currently manages more than 19,000 properties across Australia worth about $10 billion.
