More than 160 new home sites in the Forest Reach community at West Dapto have been released for sale, with land prices starting at $446,000.

Homes in the northern Crest View precinct will have views of the Illawarra escarpment and surrounding district and access to the proposed Crest View park.

All 183 lots in the first stage of Forest Reach, Central Precinct, have sold.

Stockland Project Director Mike Milligan said there had already been strong interest in Crest View.

“There is a need for more housing in the growing Illawarra region, and this new precinct at Forest Reach will help cater to that demand,” he said.

“Following the success of the now sold-out Central Precinct, we’ve seen strong interest from first home buyers, young families looking to build their forever home, upgraders and downsizers.”

Mr Milligan said due to the elevated location of Crest View, there would be a mix of flat and ready-to-build split-level lots, ranging from 300 – 957 sqm.

“We’re working closely with our builder partners to design a range of house and land packages to suit different styles of family-living across all types of lots, or alternatively, customers can choose to design and build their dream home from scratch,” he said.

Set on 113 ha at the base of the Illawarra Escarpment, Forest Reach will eventually feature three distinct neighbourhoods, with about 656 residential homes, two proposed parks and a 4.7 ha riparian open space inclusive of walking and cycle paths.

There are plans for a large park in Forest Reach which will include a junior-sized football field and full-sized basketball court. There will also be a playground with outdoor fitness equipment, shaded seating, open lawns, and walking paths.

Future plans for the community include townhomes as well as options for over 60s.

The Stockland Forest Reach sales office is at 399 Bong Bong Road, Huntley.
