Coastal life close to perfection

Armstrong Green is another brilliant community from RCA Villages, this one at Armstrong Creek on the doorstep of Barwon Peninsula and the Surf Coast – one of Victoria’s prettiest playgrounds.

Life at Armstrong Green promises to be an exciting one, shared with like-minded people who value their independence and the plethora of activities – social or me-time – offered amid stunning facilities and surrounds.

The sleek and comfortable Clubhouse will be the hub of Armstrong Green, the scene of many shared activities, and spaces in which to socialise, learn, play and relax. The heated indoor pool is another village magnet, while a communal vegie garden will allow residents to get their hands in the soil and grow produce for the table.

One of the important focuses of RCA Villages is their unique Active Health program. Because research shows that socially engaged, physically active people lead healthier and active lives, Armstrong Green does much to encourage and facilitate residents’ health and wellbeing.

And Armstrong Green, as are all RCA Villages, is democratically run by a management committee, with seven of the 10 members elected by the residents, plus a professional village manager to implement instructions.

As good as the Armstrong Green village is, the home designs available are equally luxurious, with great attention to detail to make life care-free and reflective of the coastal vibe. Individual preferences and additional requirements can be accommodated during construction.

Right now, the Bellarine, Connewarra and Queenscliff home designs are open for viewing, with the Fairhaven design released shortly.

BELLARINE: 22.3 squares total

The sense of space is immediate, with a wide entry hall, 2.7-metre ceilings and a colour palette of crisp-white and greys. Floorboards in the hall and living domain enhance the breezy feel, while stone benches and attractive tiling are classy and contemporary.

The three fitted bedrooms – one perfect as a study – include the lavish main with walk-through wardrobe, and a fully tiled dual-basin en suite with walk-in shower.

Cooks and entertainers will love the kitchen, with its waterfall island bench, abundant seamless cabinetry, a walk-in pantry, and all mod-cons, while stacker doors in the adjoining living hub open to a north-facing undercover alfresco area.

The remote-controlled double garage has internal access.

CONNEWARRA 21.55 squares total

With the same luxury features as the Bellarine, the Connewarra offers an alternative layout, with the front door under the covered alfresco area and opening directly into the spacious floorboarded living domain and glam kitchen.

The main bedroom has a walk-in robe and a luxe fully tiled dual-basin en suite with walk-in shower, while another bedroom has a built-in robe; a good-sized study can double as a third bedroom if needed.

The remote-controlled double garage has a storeroom, designated workshop area, and internal access.

QUEENSCLIFF 19 squares total

Slightly smaller than the other two, the Queenscliff nevertheless has all the same luxury features, plus a floorplan that puts the covered alfresco area at the centre, sheltered
on three sides.

The floorboarded dual-zone living hub incorporates the kitchen, which attracts streams of natural light through window splashbacks, while stone bench space and streamlined cabinetry are generous.

As well as the two grey-carpeted bedrooms – the large main with walk-in robe and dual-basin en suite with walk-in shower – there’s a study nook which could serve as a ‘back-up’ bedroom for a visiting grandchild.

The remote-controlled double garage has internal access.
