Agents Melissa Martin-Smith and Simon Porter say it's an exciting time at Villa Estate, Bungendore with Stage 1 villas now complete, and new residents moving in over the Christmas and New Year period.

"We had the opportunity to sit down with Mark and Lisa, one of Villa Estate's newest residents, who purchased an Elite villa towards the end of 2019," they said.

"Talking to them, it was great to find out why Villa Estate was the right place for them and hearing their take on their experience during the buying process."

Agents: What was it about Villa Estate that made you decide this was for you?

Mark and Lisa: We were wanting to downsize and were after a sense of belonging to a community. We found that Villa Estate and Bungendore as a whole suited our needs.

The Elite villa was perfect for us, giving us two bedrooms, two bathrooms, an appropriate size open plan living area and very little external upkeep.

We loved the idea of no deferred management fees when we decide to sell. The low ongoing maintenance fees were attractive, and we own our home.

Another attraction is no shared water as all the services are individually metered.

It's an easy drive to Queanbeyan and Canberra so we have the best of both worlds, country and city.

A: How did you find the purchasing process?

The purchasing process was simple and easy.

The agents and developer were great to deal with. We found them to be helpful and supportive.

They were easily contactable and gave us the opportunity to move in before settlement date and allowed us to store our items before moving in.

A: Now you have moved in what is the best part of living at Villa Estate?

ML: The best part of living at the Villa Estate is a community feel and the peace and quiet of the surrounding area.

People in the estate and Bungendore are very friendly and helpful.

There is plenty to do and see within the community of Bungendore.

Shops and services are close by and within an easy walk.
