A pandemic was not going to get in the way of Shahid Akram and his wife, Sadia, purchasing their first home. Neither was being unable to view the land they planned to purchase due to travel restrictions.
“I had already signed my contract by the time I first visited the western suburbs and set foot in Manor Lakes!” laughs Shahid, who purchased land in Manor Lakes to build his first home during Melbourne’s 2020 coronavirus lockdown.
With many friends living in and around Manor Lakes, Venkat Kalwa and his wife Raga knew immediately that Manor Lakes was home for them.
“We didn’t even look anywhere else,” confirms Venkat, “We were surprised at how comfortable and perfect it was. We knew straight away Manor Lakes was home for us, so we went ahead and purchased a block!”
With a passion for property that extends to his personal life, David Hutchinson, Manor Lakes’ newest Sales consultant, is well informed about all aspects of buying land and building and has in-depth knowledge of the local area.
“In addition to working across the house and land industry for 11 years, I have bought, built & sold properties myself so I have a complete understanding of applying for finance, buying land & building in estates.” David explains.
A beautiful mural depicting the native fauna and flora of Manor Lakes has been unveiled on the new wall of the Manor Lakes Central extension.
The stunning mural designed by local artist Carissa will the soon be the backdrop to an outdoor playground and rock climbing wall. The Manor Lakes P-12 College graduate who now studies Interior Design at RMIT, used native flora and fauna to tell the tale of her upbringing in Manor Lakes.
Talented young Manor Lakes artist John Mathet recently won the People’s Choice Award at the Wyndham Art Prize for the second successive year. The 19-year-old feels extremely honoured and humbled to have received the $2,500 prize for the second time as a result of this year’s repeat success.
“To receive the first award was amazing but to win it again this year was unbelievable,” he says.
