PRIME 5-ACRE R3 MEDIUM DENSITY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO 2 HARKNESS RD, OAKVILLE
Secure two premium sites in the heart of the Vineyard Precinct (Stage 1)!
16 Harkness Road is situated in the rapidly expanding North-West Priority Growth Area, only minutes’ from Windsor Road, the proposed Outer Sydney Orbital and just a short commute to the future Sydney Metro. This outstanding 5-acre, R3 Medium Density residential development opportunity provides developers with a rare offering to capitalise on 20,230m2 of rezoned land. For those developers looking for larger parcels of land, this site is adjacent to 2 Harkness Road, combining to give a savvy developer 40,469m2 or 10 acres of prime development land.
Location, Density and Subdivision Potential
Adjacent to the fashionable Box Hill Precinct and only a 6-minute drive from Rouse Hill Town Centre, Vineyard – Stage 1 will provide newly rezoned development land for an additional 2,400 homes to accommodate approximately 7,400 residents. This exceptional site is one of only a few within the precinct zoned entirely for R3 Medium Density development, and neighbours the proposed primary school and future village centre, shops and cafés.
In addition to the attractive location, the residential density yield for the site suggests 20-30 dwellings/hectare would be permissible. Up to 60 high-quality dwellings could be constructed with a maximum building height of 12 metres. If both sites are secured, the total residential yield can be a mix of up to 120 high-quality dwellings.
Site Attributes and Characteristics
The site itself is slightly undulating (falling to the east) with a westerly aspect, containing a quality attached dual-occupancy single-story residence set towards the front of the site. In addition, the site also contains a pre-school and tennis court which are also in a forward position slightly set back from Harkness Road. All services including connection to the Sydney Water Network, Telstra, NBN and singlephase electricity is available at the property. The site dimensions provide for approximately 122 metres of frontage to Harkness Road with a depth of approximately 157 metres (left side) and 185 metres (right side) for a combined net development area of 20,230m2 or 5 acres.
