Moss Vale

Project Details

  • Name: Ashbourne
    Moss Vale
  • Address: 141 Yarrawa Road, Moss Vale
  • Size: 123.7ha
  • Status: Obtaining DA

In the heart of historic Moss Vale in Sydney’s Southern Highlands, Aoyuan International is set to launch ‘Ashbourne’, its largest masterplan site totalling 123.7 hectares.

Moss Vale is a key gateway to the Illawarra Coast and sits within an easy 90 minute radius of other major employment centres of Campbelltown, Parramatta, the Sydney CBD, as well as the future Badgery’s Creek precinct.

Curving around the Moss Vale Golf Course and bound by Yarrawa Road and Lovelle Street, the site has been rezoned for residential lot subdivision from Wingecarribee Shire Council.

Plans are already forming to create a ‘landscape-led’ masterplanned, integrated residential community with more than 20 per cent of the site put to green open spaces and recreational facilities – showcasing the ‘healthy lifestyle’ philosophy of Aoyuan International. Moss Vale is the administrative centre for the Southern Highlands and next to Bowral is the area’s major commercial precinct.

Today, the centre is experiencing a resurgence of interest, with young families and downsizers seeking a relaxed, rural lifestyle with urban convenience. The village is also an attractive day-trip destination, drawing visitors for its natural beauty and a raft of antiques as well as new boutique homeware and clothing stores and eateries.

Ashbourne Stage One will be the first release, set to launch in the second half of 2021, and will see the commencement of a contemporary community that takes its narrative from the cultural history of the land on which it resides.

Ashbourne will deliver values that understand the dreams of families wanting a home with a country heart; space to live and grow; fresh air and four beautiful distinct seasons; a new community in harmony with its rural heritage.

  • Why is Aoyuan International taking on the Ashbourne Moss Vale project?

    The Southern Highlands is perfectly placed to showcase our core philosophy of building a healthy lifestyle and expanding our business into land, and house and land projects.

  • What’s the history behind the project approval?

    The land was earmarked as an urban release area in the 2010 Wingecarribee Shire Council Local Environment Plan, and has been rezoned for low density residential use. The development application is currently in the final phases of review with Wingecarribee Shire Council.

  • Do we need more housing in Moss Vale?

    Yes. The Wingecarribee Shire Council Demographic and Housing Study demonstrated a need for more housing in the district to accommodate population growth in the Southern Highlands.

  • Will the new houses fit in with the Moss Vale look and feel?

    Yes. As part of the masterplan, the team will work to ensure the new houses are of a high quality and reflect the charm and character of the area and integrate into the local aesthetic.

  • Will you ask the community for feedback?

    Yes. We are already working with the local Council and community to consult on the project, leading up to the lodgment of the development application. Once lodged, we will continue with an extensive community consultation process for the overall masterplan.

  • How many houses will be part of the Ashbourne Moss Vale project?

    The final amount will be decided as the development application and community consultation progress. Through staged delivery over an estimated eight to ten years, we expect to offer approximately 1,100-1,200 lots from 450 sqm to 2,000 sqm.

  • The rezoning of the land allows for 1500 lots. Why are you proposing less?

    We are committed to building and nurturing healthy communities where families thrive. Our draft masterplan for the community includes less lots to enable a range of larger lots and include wide, tree-lined streets and space for a community heart. Lush landscaping, green spaces, walking and cycling tracks have also been included instead of adding more houses to the community.

  • Will it be people new to the area buying in to the Ashbourne Moss Vale project?

    It’s likely a range of people will buy within the project over time. This may include locals looking for a new home, people returning to the Southern Highlands after time away, and people moving from Sydney and other parts of NSW to be part of a community with trademark character and charm.

  • Is traffic management part of your planning?

    Yes. We have commissioned extensive microsimulation traffic modelling over a wide area of Moss Vale, not just the site itself. As results become available, we will include them as part of our community consultation process.

  • Is water management part of your planning?

    Yes. We are undertaking water cycle and flood modelling to inform the masterplan and the development application.

  • Is flora and fauna management part of your planning?

    Yes. Flora and fauna studies have identified minimal ecological value other than two existing trees. These trees will be retained as work progresses, as will many mature and healthy trees on site. Through revegetation, we are committed to improving the ecological value of the land.

  • Is sustainability part of your planning?

    Yes. We are working with an internationally renowned sustainability consultancy to develop initiatives to ensure that this project delivers a sustainable community. Above and beyond the minimum standards.

  • Will all of the profits from the project be sent offshore?

    Aoyuan International has a growing presence in the Australian property market, and will retain any profits from the project within the Australian branch of the business.

  • Can local businesses get involved in the project?

    We are still committed to work with local businesses wherever possible. Our Development Approval is imminent. Once DA is approved and the development can start formally, we will be in a better position to understand areas where local businesses can get involved and partner with us. We will be informing the community when the DA is approved, but feel free to reach out to us to consider partnerships on a case-by-case basis.
