Varun Vashisht's first home is in a suburb so new, you won't even find it on Google Maps.
If all goes to plan, the Canberra man and partner Deepali Shukla plan to move into their new house in Taylor this month, making them the first residents of the new Gungahlin suburb.
Originally farming land, the new development will become the ACT's northern-most suburb, and will eventually be home to about 6000 residents in 2500 homes.
Mr Vashisht, a public servant who moved to Canberra from India nine years ago, said he was blown away by how quickly his home had come together.
He settled his purchase of the 405 square-metre block in November, and now hopes to be living in the four-bedroom house no later than the first week of June.
"It is a special feeling, especially as a first home-buyer," Mr Vashisht said.
"Not very many people get this sort of chance in their lifetime, to move into a place where you are the first to experience it first-hand and see a community grow.
"After maybe 10 years, when this suburb is fully developed, we can look back and proudly say we were the first here. Sometimes, it gives us goosebumps."
Mr Vashisht said he was excited about the chance to start a family in Taylor, with a new primary school set to open in the suburb in 2019.
He said he was also looking forward to being able to catch the tram to work when the new light rail network was up and running.
"It's not just new development, it's quality development," Mr Vashisht said.
"This area is coming up very nicely."
Taylor is located north of Moncrieff, west of Jacka and north-east of Casey in the Gungahlin district.
Once all stages of the development have been lodged and completed, the suburb will stretch across 315 hectares and will come close to straddling the NSW border.
Single and multi-unit lots have been sold to a range of future residents, including first home-buyers, families, retirees, builders and new immigrants. About 6 per cent of the homes built will be public houses.
