Rathdowne Wollert combines all the features for which Villawood Properties is renowned but takes it even further through the inclusion of a proposed town centre with a retail element as well as a commercial precinct. Rathdowne takes its name from the iconic Rathdowne Street on the fringe of Melbourne’s CBD, evoking a cosmopolitan energy to the bourgeoning suburb of Wollert.
Rathdowne will be a vibrant community with unique and interesting streetscapes and diverse housing options. With its proposed landmark Town Centre, exclusive Residents’ Club and distinctive landscape of waterways and green spaces, Rathdowne is set to be a premier destination like nowhere else.
Located in Wollert and only minutes away from the established suburbs of Craigieburn and Epping, Rathdowne will be an extraordinary home to a new kind of community.
Situated in the Epping North and Wollert corridor in the city of Whittlesea, residents will have easy access to the city and airport via the Hume Freeway and the Melbourne train network from nearby Craigieburn Train Station.
Enjoy the resort life at the future Residents Club, a unique Villawood Properties concept created exclusively for Residents. This cleverly designed centre provides exclusive lifestyle, fitness and recreational facilities for the whole family. Get fit with some daily laps in the 25-metre pool or a workout in the fully equipped gym; hit some balls on the tennis courts or laze around in the resort pool with the whole family.
Rathdowne’s vibrant heart will be a proposed Town Centre with landmark buildings created by one of Melbourne’s leading urban architectural practices. The town centre will comprise 5000m2 of retail floor space, including specialty retail, cafes, and a supermarket, and is well positioned within the community with bike and pedestrian paths connecting the proposed town centre to the entire neighbourhood.
The landscaping at Rathdowne will be as diverse as it is stunning and will leverage off the natural Wollert landscape including an adjoining natural conservation reserve, ancient river red gum trees and the Curly Sedge Creek. It will feature attractive tree lined streets, premium waterways, elevated green open spaces and an impressive landscaped entry boulevard.
Rathdowne’s many other features will make living here one of the easiest decisions you’ll make. Features for families include a proposed primary school, and council-run activities at the Community Centre in the Town Centre. To the north are the local sports ovals and more open spaces for an active lifestyle.
