A consortium that includes Ventura Home Group has been chosen to build the state government’s $21.8 million Amble Estate residential development on the old Hainsworth primary school site.

The 4.2-hectare site will be redeveloped by Ventura and project partner Yolk Property Group into an estate comprising about 129 small dwellings.

The Department of Communities is providing the land and co-investing with Ventura on the built form.

Work on The Amble Estate is expected to begin in October.

“The proposal submitted by the consortium was most closely aligned to the Department of Communities' vision and objectives for the project,” Housing Minister Peter Tinley said.

"All dwellings for sale in The Amble Estate will be priced below the Perth median house price, with up to 65 per cent below median prices for homes in Girrawheen.

"A number of dwellings will also be made available under the state government's shared equity initiative, making the purchase of a new home even more affordable for low to middle income earners.

"About 11 per cent of dwellings within the development will be retained for social housing. This unique infill project will deliver affordability, environmental sustainability, design quality, diversity and integration."

Girrawheen MLA Margaret Quirk said the project would fill the gap in the area’s existing housing market with affordable, diverse and sustainable options.
