The former Test captain visited Adelaide for the launch event on Saturday 22 February where the local community was invited to wander through the new display homes and enjoy other activities throughout the afternoon, including cricket games, face painting and a jumping castle, plus a free BBQ and giveaways.
Eyre at Penfield, the newest project from developer AVJennings, is located in Adelaide’s northern suburbs in close proximity to Elizabeth and Munno Para.
The display village will feature 15 homes from eight of South Australia’s leading builders: Sterling Homes, Dechellis Homes, Hickinbotham Homes, Statesman Homes, SA Housing Centre, Weeks Peacock Homes, Fairmont Homes and D&C Homes.
AVJennings State Manager, Brian Virgo, says the opening of the Eyre at Penfield display village is a major milestone for the project.
“Eyre at Penfield offers a wide range of house and land packages, linked together by a network of community parks, sporting grounds, wetlands, walking and bike trails,” said Mr Virgo.
“The opening of the display village is great news for homebuyers and we were naturally thrilled to have Steve Waugh on board to test out the facilities first with the local community.
“We invited homebuyers – and cricket lovers – to come along on the day to meet one of Australia’s most successful sportsmen and see the new display homes at Eyre at Penfield.”
Well-connected with nearby schools, childcare, shopping centres and public transport, Eyre at Penfield boasts 25 hectares of open space, incorporating 12 community parks dispersed through each precinct to encourage more active lifestyles and a true sense of community spirit.
The picturesque development includes approximately 1,750 allotments and 2,000 new homes, with other state-of the-art amenities to include a local shopping centre, extensive sporting complex, local wetlands and easy to access walking and bike trails.
Eyre at Penfield is the latest AVJennings development in South Australia following the St Clair project at Cheltenham, River Breeze at Goolwa, The Point at Noarlunga and Pathways at Murray Bridge.
