A FAMILY has moved from Kelmscott to become the first residents of a Two Rocks estate that will become home to about 6000 families over the next 15 years.
Daniel Thurling’s family recently moved into their house, built by New Generation Homes, in Atlantis Beach Estate.
“My wife Gemma and our two children Calais and Kaiden love the estate and its location beside the ocean,” he said.
“Both Calais and Kaiden have settled very well into the Two Rocks Primary School and Calais will be moving across to the brand new Atlantis Beach Baptist College when it opens early next year.”
Mr Thurling, who operates his own decorative concrete business , said the number of homes being built in the area also offered business opportunities for tradespeople like him.
“Since we moved to Atlantis Beach, I have had a large number of enquiries from local residents wanting to use my services as they are building,” he said.
“Building our new home also gave me the opportunity to use my decorative concrete skills on our new driveway and back yard patio, despite a recent neck injury.”
Acumen Development Solutions project director Jarrod Rendell said that the completion of the first homes was an exciting milestone.
“Atlantis Beach has been in the planning stages for many years and it wonderful to see the first families now constructing their new homes at the estate,” he said.
“We have now achieved over 130 lot sales and have more than 75 new residents constructing their new homes.
“It is a major vote of confidence in this development by the residents of Perth because we are finding that many of the initial buyers in the Estate come for a wide variety of areas across the Perth metropolitan area.”
