Conjuring memories of the coast and childhood holidays, The Cape exudes a sense of freedom. In perfect harmony with the environment, residents enjoy absolute beachfronts, breath-taking views and modern creature comforts.
Australia’s first truly sustainable residential project, The Cape is offering 219 home sites, of which 32 are currently for sale in Stage 1. Sites range from 440 to 730sqm in area. In collaboration with architects and builders who share the same vision, ten house designs have been created exclusively for The Cape. Choose one of these designs, or design your own.
More than half of The Cape project is dedicated to open space, where walking and cycling tracks meander past native vegetation, parks and barbeque areas. Complete with a sports precinct and other facilities, The Cape will have everything you need in a well-planned modern community.
At The Cape, a serene paradise awaits.
Our vision is to create a benchmark for sustainable living in a location unlike any other. The Cape at Cape Paterson brings together the expertise of local builders and sustainability experts, to create a modern community that is one with the environment.
In designing The Cape we have reviewed various aspects of sustainability and livability alongside principles of ecological restoration and social cohesion. The Cape combines these values to bring you a truly exceptional lifestyle.
When you purchase land at The Cape, build your home from one of our 10 unique designs, each featuring 7.5-star energy efficient homes with highly efficient lights and appliances. Alternatively you can choose to customise your own based on our design guidelines. Some of the best builders and designers in Australia are on hand to help you build at The Cape. All homes will feature proper orientation, shading, glazing, insulation and more, to ensure year round comfort and reduce living costs. Your home will retain heat in winter and stay cool in summer, minimising the need for excessive cooling or heating.
The use of rainwater will increase the availability of clean, fresh water in our community. In addition to mains water, all houses will feature at least 10,000 litres of rainwater storage for use in gardens and toilets, helping to create year-round water security. Excess stormwater will be redirected to collection ponds and filtered back through vegetation into groundwater and natural wetlands.
Each house at The Cape will have a minimum of 2.5 kilowatts of solar energy. Powered by the sun, the community will be capable of creating an annual surplus of clean energy. Electric vehicle charge points are also available for residents who want them.
The Cape will offer kilometres of walking and cycling paths, parks, a large village green, and an ampitheatre, as well as a sports precinct with barefoot bowls, bocce rink, beach volleyball court and a half basketball court. There will also be a conference facility with a community centre, café and seminar space.
As a resident at The Cape, you will have the opportunity to grow your own produce in our specially designed gardens if you choose. The café at The Cape’s Community Centre will also offer our residents delicious meals made from the freshest, locally grown produce.
A haven for nature lovers, The Cape is designed to coexist with natural Coastal Heathland and Banksia Woodland habitats. Along with local wildflower species, these habitats provide home to native wildlife such as echidnas, wallabies, kangaroos and countless bird species.
