Award-winning Hunter-based developer, McCloy Group has a versatile history in the building industry, but it is their focus on creating award-winning communities is front of mind in today’s real estate market, with an ongoing reputation for attracting purchasers so eager to secure land in their Port Stephens communities they’re willing to camp a week in advance!!

Their newest community, The Gardens located on Medowie Road offers premium flat homesites in a sophisticated and welcoming environment. When complete The Gardens will be true to its name with manicured gardens and mature street trees throughout; plus signature McCloy Group public art donations resonating with the community. First released in July 2020 The Gardens saw a number of hopeful parties camping out from as early as the Monday prior to be the first to secure a homesite, with numbers increasing as the release date approached.

Forging ahead, the second stage was released in September again attracting campers’ days in advance to secure a place within the community. McCloy Group Senior Project Director James Goode attributed the spike in demand to a mixture of factors “there has never been a better market for those looking to build, the Government has an array of grants available and all time low interest rates are making cracking the property market more affordably for many families”.

The same experience has been felt at nearby McCloy Community, The Bower located at Boundary Road Medowie. The Bower is a more established community, first launched in 2016. At the time it too had a surge of demand, and today has seen this spike again. The latest release, the Capri Release is a premium offering where homesites are spacious, well over 700m2 and are adjoining the state-of-the-art 1-hectare park and playground facilities. These blocks really are a unique opportunity and with a deposit of only 5% required on land, they’re a great option for many homeowners and are often found to be more affordably than purchasing an existing property.

When asked why the McCloy Group have a keen focus on Medowie and Port Stephens Mr Goode commented that “Medowie was identified as a key growth area with its proximity to Port Stephens beaches and nearby work opportunities at the RAAF, the expanding Newcastle Airport and Newcastle CBD. After experiencing a positive reaction since launching The Bower, we sought to broaden our offering in the area.”

But the opportunity to secure land does not stop here, with another McCloy Community at home off Rees James Road, Raymond Terrace. Potter’s Lane conveys affordability with a convenient location just 15 minutes to local employment opportunities, 20 minutes from the Williamstown RAAF base and 25 minutes to Newcastle. This community has grown rapidly since its launch in 2016, with local residents pleased with the progression of the community.

“The McCloy Group created a warm and inviting community environment. The inclusion of the wonderful playground, beautiful trees and grassed areas at the beginning of the development was one of the main reasons we decided to make this area our home. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the McCloy Group to anyone wishing to build a new home in one of their estates.” Karen Humphris, resident of Potter’s Lane added.

When considering Port Stephens for your new home, a tour of the McCloy Communities is a must. Future residents can expect the highest quality of living environments, as McCloy Group place a strong emphasis on vibrant public art and aesthetically pleasing streetscapes. They build children’s parks, playgrounds and cycleways, and plant mature trees. Dedicated open space for families to enjoy is a must within McCloy communities.
