Named after Gladys Moncrieff, Australia’s ‘Queen of Song’ in the 1920s, Canberra’s newest suburb will make any home buyer’s heart sing.
With nature on its doorstep and stunning views of the surrounding countryside, Moncrieff will eventually feature 2,200 homes, a group centre, community facilities, parks and playgrounds.
A new urban village, slated for development at the intersection of Mirrabei and Horse Park drives, will feature shops and services, while the well-established Gunghalin Town Centre is just 3.5 kilometres away.
Around a third of Moncrieff’s hill tops and ridges will be retained as open space, and ponds will be dotted throughout the suburb. Residents will love the spectacular views of Canberra’s bushland setting.
The compact suburb is perfect for pedestrians and pedal pushers, with cycle paths and walking tracks encouraging healthy and active living.
The LDA’s Mingle program will roll out a range of activities – from family events to working groups – to help residents connect with their neighbours and build a vibrant community at Moncrieff.
The mixture of single residential, medium and high density multi-unit developments will provide plenty of choice for Canberrans wanting the best of affordable suburban living just a stone’s throw from the heart of Gungahlin.
