Cambridge’s St Kilda signs up Eric Murray as new ambassador

Cambridge’s St Kilda signs up Eric Murray as new ambassador

Cambridge residential development, St Kilda, has partnered with New Zealand rowing champion and Olympic gold medalist Eric Murray who will be the subdivision’s new ambassador.

As part of the partnership, Murray and his family will be provided with a new home that will showcase local architects, builders and building suppliers, all in keeping with St Kilda’s strong focus on community and the environment.

"St Kilda is a premier subdivision, with large section sizes and a vast array of walkways, cycle paths and picturesque wetlands,” said Mr Murray.
“The vision for the lifestyle is to include sustainability so you can design 'your dream home'. We are in full support of this project and I can't wait to build in this location for my family’s future."

St Kilda developer, Matt Smith is working with a range of local and national building suppliers to sponsor Murray’s build.

“The Murray’s family home will allow us to showcase the building process from start to finish and the flexibility those building a home at St Kilda have in choosing the right look and functionality to meet their individual needs,” said Mr Smith.

“St Kilda is unique in that it doesn’t limit prospective buyers to the standard home and land packages or plans often seen in the other subdivisions, and this really appeals to both prospective buyers and suppliers,” said Mr Smith.

Construction for the Murray’s new family home is expected to commence in September 2014. Plans are in the process of being drawn up by a Cambridge-based architect, Aaron Guerin from Lafferty Architectural Design.

St Kilda is located on the outskirts of Cambridge, less than 4km from the town centre. It combines a unique rural outlook with upscale urban facilities that encourage a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle and a true sense of community.

Stage 1 of the development is completed with Stage 2 underway. The first sections at St Kilda were sold earlier this year, with several homes now under construction. The subdivision includes 80 hectares of land with 285 sections and a 67-villa and 80-bed hospital care facility built by Bupa on site.

The subdivision sections are designed to deliver a feeling of space for the owners but still offer access to an environmentally responsible subdivision to the community. With clear but flexible building guidelines, the development encourages homeowners to utilise sustainable and energy efficiency principles.
