Located in the charming bayside suburb of Rippleside, just minutes from Geelong CBD and less than one hour from Melbourne, Stella Maris is an exclusive new waterfront address comprising a luxury collection of apartments and townhomes.
Curated by design-led property developer MONNO and architecturally designed by award-winning architects Rothelowman, Stella Maris is set to be the most premium coastal enclave in Geelong with four distinct residential buildings arranged around the beautiful, heritage-listed St Helens Mansion.
Demolition has now commenced of this $130 million development, and discerning buyers are recognising the value of this exceptional offering with the project now over 50% sold since initial launch late last year.
Once known as “Sleepy Hollow,” Geelong is now booming, sharing the equal fastest growth rate with Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, among Australia’s largest cities in recent years. As a result, there will be plenty of housing in central Geelong, especially in a higher density setting. However, Stella Maris will remain in a league of its own. With an absolute waterfront address, extensively landscaped surrounds, a community-friendly design, luxurious onsite amenities, and homes of superior quality that elevate coastal living, there will be nothing like Stella Maris.
The waterfront development features a diverse range of housing types forged to perfection by an experienced team. Each of the project’s four residential buildings, Nautica House, The Arbory, Park Row, and The Acreage, embodies classic coastal luxury of the highest calibre.
As the epitome of waterfront living, Nautica House offers contemporary two, three, and four-bedroom apartments on the edge of Corio Bay. Come home to expansive living spaces that open onto generous garden terraces overlooking easterly views of the water and beyond.
With mesmerising views of Corio Bay, St Helens Park, and the Geelong city skyline, The Arbory offers beautiful three and four-bedroom apartments complete with premium fittings and luxurious finishes. While Park Row comprises a boutique collection of just three elegant townhomes with a Bay Street address. Here, stylish interiors are meticulously appointed with each townhome serviced by its own private lift. Like The Arbory, Park Row will also enjoy unencumbered views of St Helens Park, Corio Bay, and the Geelong city skyline.
The Acreage offers even more options with stylish one, two, and three-bedroom apartments with varying levels of internal amenities to cater to diverse needs. A limited number of expansive three-bedroom duplexes are also on offer. Nestled in and amongst verdant landscaping incorporating 100+ year old trees, The Acreage embraces a connection to the outdoors. Ground floor residences boast private terraces, while most homes have been thoughtfully designed to take advantage of the natural coastal setting as well as the proposed extensive and punctiliously curated landscape setting designed by award-winning landscape architect Acre.
Despite offering a highly considered product, Stella Maris also facilitates custom changes in response to the varying specific needs of purchasers. This is an approach most off-the-plan sales usually avoid. With Stella Maris, it has never been easier to realise your dream home.
Elevating your lifestyle, Stella Maris’ stunning amenities integrate health and wellness into your everyday. Find a well-equipped gymnasium, 20-metre lap pool, yoga and pilates space, steam room, al fresco seating and dining areas, and a built-in kitchen and BBQ amenity on the grounds.
Additionally, the project’s commitment to exceeding standards in sustainability, from the development being fossil-fuel-free to the inclusion of other features such as solar panels, organic waste bins, and EV charging infrastructure, affirms Stella Maris as a future-proof development.
Demolition is well underway, with construction commencement to follow and a target mid-2025 completion. With over 50% of residences sold, now is the perfect time to secure your new home in this luxurious coastal sanctuary.
“We’re incredibly proud to achieve this significant milestone of bringing Stella Maris to life,” said Geno Hubay, Managing Director of MONNO. “We look forward to welcoming residents to this exceptional coastal enclave that the Bellarine Peninsular has not seen before.”
