Arcadia Group expands into Victoria
The expansion of Arcadia Group continues with the announcement of the acquisition of a 432 acre retirement village site at Hidden Valley residential estate near Wallan in Victoria, the fastest growing and now largest town in the shire.
Just north of Melbourne’s metropolitan boundary and only 50 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, Hidden Valley is the former sprawling country estate of Robert Holmes a Court. It boasts rolling green hills, stunning views and enviable lifestyle attractions.
In addition to the land, the group has also acquired the Hidden Valley Golf Course and Country Club, a world- class sporting, recreation and social complex featuring a fully equipped equestrian centre and an 18 hole championship golf course designed in consultation with championship golfer Craig Parry. The 6581 metre, par 73 course is a joy to play and will be appreciated by golfers of all skill levels. Its 18th island green is fast developing a reputation as Australia’s most challenging.
Arcadia Group plans are already well advanced for the development of up to 550 retirement units set around the golf course and amongst the rolling hills and stands of pencil pines which make you feel like you are in Tuscany. The architecturally characterised two bedroom plus study villas are designed to integrate, with classic terracotta roof tiles and warm, sun-bleached tones.
Besides horse-riding and golf, there’s plenty of other leisure pursuits to enjoy at Hidden Valley. Within the grounds there is popular Hidden Valley Bistro with an inviting bar, dining room and a function/conference room. In addition, residents will have access to two tennis courts, a gymnasium, sauna and a 25m swimming pool. An existing mansion will also be converted into a stage one clubhouse and sales office prior to the arrival of the first village residents.
"It truly is a magnificent and very picturesque place to retire. There are abundant bushwalking trails through the valley offering some amazing views across the natural waterways and bushland that characterise the area”, said Roger Kwok, Arcadia Group’s managing director.
