THE last blocks of land release have been snapped up in the Bunya estate.

UrbanGrowth NSW (formerly Landcom) recently released its last major lot in the estate.

Interest was very strong as property hunters queued to get a look at the lots in the northern end of the estate, which is within walking distance of Doonside station.

All 50 lots were sold within a few hours and were in addition to the 700 land lots that were previously sold.

Bunya was the first greenfields estate in NSW to gain national broadband access.

Most of the recent buyers are from within a 20-kilometre radius, from suburbs such Rooty Hill, Doonside, Parramatta and Granville.

Construction on the final land lots will start in the coming months and the estate is expected to be finished a year ahead of schedule.

Kamini and Aaron Newton bought their block of land in March last year as part of the stage two land release.

They hope move in soon — before their second child is born later this year.

The couple and daughter Xaidee, 3, currently live with Kamini's parents in Blacktown.

Bunya's surroundings were a key factor in the couple's choice of where to settle.

"It's a new community and we were looking to build near other residents in our age group," Mrs Newton said.
