Location


Lochinvar, the home of ST Helenas Village, is bordered by the picturesque and semi-rural towns of Windella and Allandale.
When reaching the town you can’t help but slow down and take in the historic churches, schools and hotel which all sit as a scenic backdrop to the suburb. The main thoroughfare also has additional services such as a hotel, take-away business and general store which features a newsagency and post office.

The site of St Helenas Village itself is situated on the western outskirts of town adjacent the St Helena Homestead - to which it owes it name. The homestead and subsequent area was settled in the 19th century as a country home and wine making initiative. The homestead still stands today and boasts grand gardens. It was once the site of a fine dining restaurant but concluded operation approximately 10 years ago.

The area is ideally located close to many regional transport thoroughfares including the New England Highway, the new Hunter Expressway and the Main Northern Railway Line. For those travelling up the Hunter Valley or Newcastle the newly opened Hunter Expressway has cut essential commutes by up to half an hour.

Via the New England Highway residents can expect travel time to Singleton to take approximately 26 minutes.
 

 

 

 


Securing your block


To secure the purchase of a block of land you are required to sign a contract which:


• Provides for a ten business day cooling off period (Please note: a business day does not include a weekend or a public holiday)

• A deposit of 0.25% of the purchase price (e.g. $625.00 if a purchase price of $250,000) is required upon signing. The balance of the 10% purchase price is payable upon or before the expiration of the cooling off period. (In the previous example given, this would be $25,000 - $625.00 = $24,375.00) which would be the balance payable.) Please Note: the payment of a deposit without signing a contract will not secure you the block.
Peters Real Estate holds all the original and duplicate contracts.

• The Deposit is invested in a separate interest account with you as a purchaser collecting all the interest accrued up to settlement. Your Tax File numbers are required for investment of this deposit.

• Home owners; For most people who currently own a home and wish to secure a block of land, the balance of deposit security (following the initial 0.25%) is typically by way of a Deposit Bond. This is certificate from the bank/building society that substitutes a cash payment.

• Having exchanged contracts, you have locked the owner in … and every other buyer out. You (and not the owner) have the right to withdraw out of the purchase at any time prior to the expiration of the cooling off period (this requires service of an appropriate notice by your legal representative to the vendor’s legal representative). In these circumstances, you forfeit your initial 0.25% of purchase price to the vendor.

• Completion of Stage 1 at St Helena Estate is anticipated in Mid 2018
