Waterways – Live on the water

Waterways embraces a design for living that offers a balance between the luxuries of modern life and the beauty of a natural Australian setting.  Unique is a much overdone description, but Waterways is nothing less. Indeed it is a rare benchmark for quality of construction combined with design that is in total sympathy with its surroundings.

The Waterways estate is considered one of the finest examples of contemporary living in Melbourne, providing an enviable lifestyle for its residents and forms its own suburb.  The estate is spread over 115 acres and comprises 754 lots, with approximately 50% of this area comprised of open spaces and wetlands. It is part of a master design developed by the Portland House Group, in conjunction with Melbourne Water and the City of Kingston, to create an estate which combines “considered” urban planning in conjunction with revitalised natural habitat.

There is a chain of 10 man-made lakes running through and beside the estate, developed to act as a natural filter for Mordialloc Creek.  The estate has now reached a level of maturity whereby construction is 98% complete. Lakes have been stocked with fish and an abundance of native flora and fauna have since thrived.

To help you understand ‘who does what’ at Waterways we have developed this information pack.

Waterways have design guidelines to ensure your home and others at Waterways are of contemporary design, are energy efficient, use substantially native plants and that a number of trees planted per property. A copy of the Building & Landscaping Design Guidelines can be accessed via MyCommunity or by email request (details below).

Waterways is managed by an Owners Corporation, and one of the Owners’ Corporation’s principal charters is to ensure that all Members maintain their property and are entitled to the quiet enjoyment of the area.
