Amblemead is one of Mt Barker's newest communities, transforming into a peaceful haven in a rapidly growing area. With Stage 1 nearly sold out, civil construction of Stage 2 has now commenced. The features of the development are starting to shine, taking centre stage amongst the hustle and bustle of machinery.
Take the Amblemead Reserve for example - the area will showcase a combination of deciduous and evergreen trees; residents will enjoy the seasonal beauty that the former exposes along with the year-round vision of the leafy eucalyptus' that will line the edge of the pond. Maples and Nyssa trees will create a burst of colour at the entry point whilst Tillia’s are scattered throughout the reserve with larger trees such as the Bunya Pine and the Horse Chestnut creating points of interest within the development.
The street trees are all deciduous, a combination of Maple species, with a red autumn tone -'these will become a feature of Amblemead's neighbourhood streets' says Senior Landscape Architect at Greenhill, Amy Prince.
Amblemead will fast become a favourite destination with the local community as the Reserve and nature playground will soon be ready for our residents to come home to, and relax.
The Amblemead community will eventually be home to 162 homes and just a few hundred people who will connect with each other via the 2 hectares of open spaces, walking trails, boutique shops and neighbourhood centre. Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? Find out why more people are choosing to come home to Amblemead, we would love to hear from you!
