If you were to create a dream place to live, what would it include? Perhaps a swimming pool, an exclusive on-site club, or even a golf course. Maybe you’d like unabashed nature, or a perfectly placed school. Playgrounds for the kids would be nice, as would waterways filled with birdlife. Mandalay, found 45 minutes north of the Melbourne CBD, offers all this and more. An exclusive address with an 18 hole championship golf course at its heart, here you can enjoy incredible levels of luxury, but without breaking the bank.
450 Mandalay Circuit, Beveridge VIC 3753, Australia
Why buy in Mandalay
Exclusivity and amenity combine at Mandalay, a place that feels more resort than abode. Club Mandalay, with its community centre and 25 metre heated pool, serves as the hub of the community, while almost half of the homesites are granted uninterrupted views of the on-site golf course, designed by five-time British Open champion Peter Thompson. Mandalay offers the high life, without the high price.
Mandalay Suburb Profile
40km north of the Melbourne CBD as the crow flies, as little as 45 minutes by car, Beveridge is a rural locality that is only just realising how desirable its location is. For the longest time this community was known for one thing: being the birthplace of Ned Kelly. While Kelly’s childhood home still stands, other more recent additions to the town are stealing some of its limelight. With established communities within an hour of the CBD becoming the hottest of hot property, Beveridge is beginning to experience real population growth, fuelled by estates like Mandalay, Minton Place, Ooranya and Glenmore. With greater headcount comes greater convenience and amenity; shopping, education, healthcare and transport developments are all in the works, and the sprawling Merrifield Business Park, set to add tens of thousands of jobs to the area, is less than 10 minutes south. But don’t worry – Beveridge won't be giving up its country charm any time soon.
