Tallygaroopna, Victoria

Property Owners – John & Mien Tielen

Creating opportunities for families to enjoy a relaxed, rural lifestyle was the motivation behind some retired dairy farmers developing a portion of their land for residential housing.

John and Mien Tielen, both long-serving members of various community groups in Tallygaroopna, entered into a partnership agreement with Development Edge to establish Woodlands Estate in the small town.

The Tielen’s had owned their 283ha property for 22 years and the balance is still used for agriculture, offering the residents of Woodlands a unique rural outlook.

“Over the years people have approached us, wanting to buy a block of land, but we were busy running the farm and didn’t really have time for that,” John said.

“We have a friend in Shepparton who has been involved in residential development and he helped us by pointing out all the positives and negatives and suggested we approach Development Edge.


Kialla, Victoria

Property Owners – Ross & Heather Gange

“When we decided to develop part of our property (The Lemon Tree Stud), where we have lived for 43 years, we quickly realised undertaking a residential development was going to be daunting and certainly overwhelming. Due to those negatives, we came to the conclusion we were out of our depth and needed assistance, so we approached Development Edge’s Peter Mintern and Michael Lewis to undertake the subdivision totally themselves.

They were in the process of developing Seven Creeks Estate which adjoined our property. With their extensive expertise, networks, knowledge and experience we were able to structure a contract of sale that resulted in the development of our land.

From our first meeting with Peter and Michael we both felt instantly comfortable with them undertaking this project. We were impressed with their open communication, attention to detail and professionalism.

When Development Edge became involved, the project was expediated and all the blocks sold extremely quickly. They took care of everything. We couldn’t be happier as we would not have achieved the final positive outcome ourselves. We are extremely proud of the finished product, Sevens View in the Seven Creek Estate.”
