Sawtell Commons


Sawtell Commons was a greenfield site bought by Gowings in 2016 for residential development and is set over a picturesque 38.49 hectares, bordering the Bongil Bongil National Park, with direct access to Bonville Creek.

It’s superbly placed with vibrant Sawtell Village only 3kms away, easy access to the Pacific Highway and Coffs Harbour just a ten minute drive. It has a unique appeal in its location between the mountains and the sea and is the last undeveloped land on the ocean side of the highway in the region. The average block size is 640m2 and all blocks feature a great orientation and planned access to cycleways and pathways, connecting natural vegetation areas to creek reserves and parklands. A children’s playground and community garden will feature in the parkland areas.

There has been strong market interest from the outset. The Display Village opened in 2020 with seven local builders showcasing beautiful display homes. Completion of the Stage 2 works sees 20 of the 220 Sawtell Commons residential lots constructed and registered for sale or development. Sale prices for the stage 3 release of 56 lots are being reviewed but to date pre-sale interest has been strong with 11 holding deposits received at an average of $325,000 per lot. Stage 3 subdivision works have commenced with Registration for stage 3 expected around the end of March 2022
