Maitland is set to welcome its newest residential land release The Loxford this weekend.
Spanning 2000-hectares, the development is the handiwork of Hunter-based property developers McCloy Group and Stevens Group.
Located off Cessnock Road, The Loxford is expected to become the site of 354 new homes, with blocks starting at $369,000.
“Spanning two Local Government Areas (LGAs) and encompassing residential land, employment land and environmental offset land, The Loxford is a well-rounded master planned development, set to bring much needed housing and lifestyle opportunities to the Hunter and wider region,” McCloy Group development director Shane Boslem said.
“It boasts approval for 354 new homesites created in the local community, with homesites proposed to range from 450 to over 1000 square metres.”
To celebrate, the development team will host a family-friendly, free event on site on Saturday 7 October.
Activities at the three-hour event include live entertainment, a Red Bull Air Show, a visit by Hunter rugby league legend Mark Hughes, a petting zoo and jumping castles, giveaways, free coffee and food trucks.
Those who RSVP before the event will go in the draw to win one of two prize packages at The Vintage, including golf for four and a $200 voucher for bar NINETEEN.
The winners will be drawn onsite on Saturday at 11am.
“As you can see with events like this, the team behind the Loxford at McCloy’s have big plans for our egion, all of which keeps families and locals at front of mind,” Newcastle Knights icon Hughes said.
“They have really included incredible facilities such as a Regional Park and Playground, statement public art and are passionate about getting involved with the existing area, even teaming up with my old footy club the Kurri Bulldogs as major sponsors.”
Creators of The Loxford say what sets it apart from surrounding developments, is its focus on premium land offerings with a strong sense of community and an abundance of nature and convenience.
“One of the significant benefits the project brings to broader Maitland community is flood immunity to the people of Gillieston Heights,” Mr Boslem adds.
“While the upgrade at Testers Hollow, recently completed by Daracon, brought some flood relief, it will only be through the completion of The Loxford project that full flood free access to the Gillieston Heights community be provided.”
Development works include a major intersection off Cessnock Road, an entry feature lining both sides of the new Transport for NSW intersection, and a state-of-the-art regional park including public art.
More than 40 display homes will stand together at the entrance to The Loxford, with multiple designs from leading home builders including McDonald Jones Homes, Mojo Homes, Clarendon Homes, Eden Brae and Hunter Homes.
The Loxford also boasts a large environmental footprint, with 800ha of the 2000ha site protected under Biodiversity Stewardship, with surrounding wetlands retained.
Blocks start from $369,000, each securable onsite at the launch event with a $1,500 holding deposit.
