Stella Maris is a new luxury development located on the banks of Corio Bay in Geelong, Victoria, offering a unique blend of absolute waterfront living and urban convenience with wellness and sustainability at the fore.
The project boasts a prime bayside location just moments away from natural beauties and vibrant lifestyle amenities, making it the perfect choice for downsizers, owner-occupiers, and first-home buyers.
Setting a new benchmark for luxury living, Stella Maris is a high-calibre and design-led development curated by MONNO, focusing on uncompromising outcomes for the residents and creating a new residential enclave never before seen in Geelong.
The location of Stella Maris is one of its standout features, offering absolute waterfront living that is unlikely to be repeated in the Bellarine Peninsula.
The development is situated opposite St Helens Park in the suburb of Rippleside immediately north of the CBD, and offers unencumbered views of Corio Bay and the Geelong city skyline.
With the Geelong waterfront and CBD just a 10-minute car ride away, stunning destinations and everyday conveniences are part of your every day. Here, the burgeoning food and wine scene is bursting at its seams, and you will find yourself also spoilt for choice with a myriad of retail, arts, and entertainment options at your fingertips.
The new development has taken Geelong's real estate market by storm, boasting a full suite of amenities underpinned by health and wellness. This, along with a deliberate focus on sustainability, gives astute buyers the opportunity to experience a sublime way of living.
The development is fossil-fuel-free and offers a range of features that reduce its environmental footprint, including electric vehicle chargers, organic waste bins located in the bin room for food and garden waste disposal, roof-mounted photovoltaic (solar) panels providing clean and renewable energy to power selected communal amenities and common area utilities, and a communal garden which includes edible plants such as herbs and citrus trees for residents’ use.
These sustainability features are important for today's buyers increasingly seeking environmentally responsible living options.
Fostering a verdant retreat, extensive landscaping that incorporates existing established trees designed by highly regarded landscape architect Acre gives the project a unique and timeless look while providing residents with a peaceful and relaxing environment.
The wellness amenities on offer are exceptional. Promoting an active and healthy lifestyle, the project includes a 20-meter lap pool, a well-equipped gym, a steam room, a yoga studio, and a private residents' outdoor lounge by the architecturally striking pool. As a city with the highest dog ownership per capita in Victoria, a couple of ‘dog-wash’ bays have also been included for the residents’ convenience.
The project is Geelong's most exclusive residential enclave, and the master plan features a collection of architecturally sculpted apartments and townhouses by award-winning architect and interior designer Rothelowman.
Buyers can choose from various properties, including exquisite apartments, stunning duplexes, and elegant townhouses.
With residences ranging from one to four bedrooms, Stella Maris’ luxurious quality and premium materiality use takes centre stage in every home, with premium finishes such as natural stone, porcelain tiles, wool carpets, timber flooring, timber veneers, V-Zug appliances, and designer tapware, ensuring that buyers are treated to the finest specifications and craftsmanship.
The development has seen new off-the-plan apartment sales record for Geelong with a $4.5 million penthouse sold. It has also sold almost 50% of the available properties just six months after its launch in November 2022.
This success is largely due to the quality of the offering, which has never been seen in Geelong or the Bellarine Peninsula, making it clear that Stella Maris is a cut above the rest.
The commitment to quality is evident throughout the project, and the exceptional sales performance is a testament to this. With construction tender underway and target commencement on site in June 2023, the future looks bright for Stella Maris.
