There’s a reason why first home buyers, growing families and downsizers alike are moving to Torquay. Located 70 minutes from Melbourne CBD, the Bellarine Peninsula offers something for all types of buyers. Vibrancy and tranquillity have never been more beautifully combined as they are in Torquay. Arden’s newest Luxe296 display home is now open at QUAY2 estate, exhibiting the designer inclusions, architectural elegance and generous proportions that define our Luxe home range.
Torquay combines the best of neighbourhood living with a relaxed, holiday lifestyle. Minutes from a myriad of beaches and everyday amenities, QUAY2 offers a serene oasis in a convenient location. Schools, shopping destinations and sporting facilities are all reachable via a short walk, cycle or drive.
The Bellarine is a place where first home buyers can enjoy a prime location combining resort-living with the convenience of local amenities; where growing families are provided with the space to flourish and live an active lifestyle; and where downsizers can enjoy a slower pace of life.
For growing families, Torquay provides a generous selection of local schools.
