  • It's almost everyone's ambition to live close to the coast. For the Mitchell's, Osprey Waters is a dream come true.

    When you retire, you want to do so in style. That’s exactly what Gloria and John Mitchell have achieved with their dream home at Mirvac’s award-winning Osprey Waters community in Western Australia’s picturesque suburb of Erskine; minutes from shops, schools, transport links and the Mandurah city centre. 

    "I keep telling people I think we've found heaven here."

    Evidence of the deep consideration Mirvac has taken for the residents is clear in the amenities the community boasts. There is a non-motorised vessel launch area, while those keen on fishing make great use of the fish and crab cleaning stations.

    There’s also a range of fitness equipment throughout the ample public open space for residents who prefer to exercise close to home. The natural bushland surrounding the area remains intact. Indeed, the fact Mirvac prioritised the foreshore and bush has led to a number of prestigious awards for the community.

    An award-winning community.

    Osprey Waters – named after the resident osprey’s that nest there – is proud to be the recipient of the 2016 Urban Development Institute of Australia’s Award for Environmental Excellence and the Russel Perry Award for Urban Development Excellence. Judges praised Osprey Waters for being the best of the best and a development others should look to as an example of what can be achieved through exceptional planning and design.


    Waterside living at its finest.

    The idyllic waterside location makes the most of the landscaped foreshore reserve that features walkways, a boardwalk, native vegetation and barbecue areas.

    For the Mitchells, this translates into an outstanding lifestyle every day. “The natural bushland has been protected and we can see nature’s beautiful playground in the plants, the estuary, trees and wildlife all around the community. We can sit on our balcony and see an osprey nesting just 300 metres away, catching fish from the estuary and feeding its chicks,” says Gloria.

    It’s not just the ospreys that enjoy the 2,700 retained and planted native trees that surround the development. It’s also home to an abundance of wildlife including Carnaby’s black cockatoos and red-tailed black cockatoos.

    Aside from the stunning natural backdrop, Osprey Waters also provides great opportunities for residents to remain active. “We love to ride our bikes and John has already taken the kayak out on the estuary and paddled around to Mandurah Quay for a coffee. We don’t believe there could be a better place to retire.”

    There's something for everyone.

    No matter whether it’s young families enjoying a weekend barbecue, or couples like the Mitchells who are at the stage of life where they are looking to downsize to a stunning new residence in an unparalleled location.
