Encouraging a community lifestyle through the built space, Ascot Place offers a number of communal outdoor areas, allowing residents to interact with their neighbours and relax among the curated, lush landscape.

“We’ve been focused here at Ascot Place in a seamless integration for the natural surroundings. The extensive landscaping is inspired by the neighbouring wetlands and will act like an extension from the expansive open space to within this community and private courtyards.”

Only a short stroll from Ascot Place are Maribyrnong River and The Ascot Chase Wetlands - both popular recreational hubs for the community and residents’ extended backyards. The proximity will tempt you to take a Saturday morning stroll with the kids to feed the ducks as the wetlands are home to over 27,000 native plants and a habitat for local fauna.
The sprawling greenery gives way to urban conveniences. Nestled among the natural environment are a plethora of urban amenities offering ample opportunities for community connection. Whether residents are looking for recreational centres like Ascot Vale Tennis Club or Flemington Racecourse or are looking to shop along Union Road, residents will be able to enjoy the best of both worlds - just minutes from home.
“Strong geometric forms frame and articulate each Ascot Place house, giving them a separate and individual identity while retaining a unifying aesthetic by carefully blending materials with the rhythmic forms of the design to create a refined and enduring development.”
