Work has started on an exclusive $14 million resort-style in Tarneit which will set a new high-end benchmark for greenfield housing projects.

Developer Villawood Properties’ Club Alamora will host multiple features including swimming pools, gymnasium, a boutique café, a multi-sport court, family and function spaces, community gardens and barbecue facilities.

It is being built by The Jardon Group to a design by architects ClarkeHopkinsClarke and set to become the community linchpin of the 2000-lot Alamora. It is scheduled to open in the first half of 2025.

Plans and renders for the club show sleek contemporary aesthetics with a stunning white pixelated-style exterior with natural stone, textures and timber, and extensive landscaping.

Alamora twins Aryan and Ashmit Singh were on hand to see the club’s slab pour, an impressive construction affair with a total of 52 trucks delivering concrete to the site.

Their parents, Swaran and Rajni were keen spectators, too.

“We bought at Alamora because of this club,” Swaran said.

“The gym and the pool are very good, the courts too.”

Rajni said: “We’re so glad we got our new house at Alamora. we’re excited for its cafes swimming pools, families can come here to get together.

“The function hall will be an exciting venue for parties and friends to meet. It’s so easy.We weren’t sure when they’d build the club but it’s moving so quickly.

Young neighbours Mayank and Dhriti Sriram were similarly impressed by the emerging club, their parents Ram and Tarangini keen to make use of the club’s sports courts.

“We’re looking forward to using the gym and swimming pools but as a family also the function hall which can be hired.

“The kids are looking forward to it, too. My daughter to the swimming pool, my older teenage son to the gym, also tennis or basketball.

“The club will add value to your property, absolutely, because it’s easily available and near your home. Many people will be excited to have these facilities as a clubhouse property does value.

“In fact, that was one element we factored in when we were looking to buy., we looked at multiple places but this ticks all the boxes.”

Villawood chief executive Alan Miller said Club Alamora offered the prospect of making every day like a holiday for residents.

“We have people who come to live here from all different suburbs,” he said. “They don’t know who their neighbours are going to be. They want to meet new people and make new friends.

“We try to provide them with a melting pot of activity. Club Alamora will have a cafe, a parents’ lounge where they can bring their kids and meet up –the pools, the barbecue area, the playground.

“For those who want a bit more fitness, we’ve got a fantastic gym. Plus we have a function room where there will be lots of kids’ birthdays, twenty-firsts, even weddings.”

Alamora, located in the Sayers Road precinct, is Villawood’s eighth project in Wyndham and has sold more than 600 lots since its launch three years ago.

The Alamora facility is one of six clubs in the Villawood pipeline at present. Two are planned for Sunbury with others in Adelaide and Cairns.

Villawood opened its Club Coridale at Lara in December. Its Club Rathdowne at Wollert received a Great Place Award from the Urban Development Institute of Australia 12 months earlier.
