Record Sales at Launch Event


The experienced team at DevCore always knew that Goulburn would attract buyers from across Sydney and Canberra, however, have been thrilled with the sheer volume of interest since revealing Blakelys Run to market last month.   With numerous buyers driving hours to get to the launch event on Saturday 30 April to secure land, the DevCore team were pleased to be able to bring forward an additional two releases on the day to satisfy the demand.

Blakelys Run, located at 129 Marys Mount Road is the first residential masterplan launched within the DevCore portfolio, under the leadership of Managing Director and industry stalwart Paul Thompson.  “We’ve witnessed the demand for affordable land continue to escalate across NSW and families continue to seek far beyond Greater Sydney on the search for a safe place to raise their family.  Goulburn is perfectly positioned to offer families a friendly, safe and welcoming community to call home and the results from the launch weekend speak for themselves.”

Located in the popular growth area of Goulburn, Blakelys Run will offer 268 spacious residential lots and on completion will be home to over 700 people.  Located just 7 minutes drive to the centre of Goulburn, Blakelys Run offers regional charm and country town convenience with the benefits of strong employment and quality highway connections to Canberra within an hour and Sydney within two hours.

Director of Goulburn Sales Agency and appointed agents for Blakelys Run, Paul Edwards from Antony & Edwards said it was a mix of lack of supply, high demand and a quality masterplan that have resulted in such a successful sales launch.  “The buyers in Goulburn are quite discerning and are seeking quality residential developments where the developers are committed to a high-quality build outcome.  So once our customers were able to see the masterplan, understand the vision for the community and meet with the Paul Thompson and the DevCore team, it gave them great confidence.”

“What sets Blakelys Run apart from other residential communities we’ve seen in Goulburn in the past is the masterplan has over 10 hectares dedicated to a nature reserve.  They’ve allowed for privacy between homes and streets and kept the average lot size over 700m2.”

“During the pre-launch campaign, we’ve seen a range of buyers across NSW including families from Greater Sydney looking to escape the hustle and bustle, buyers from Bowral and surrounds looking to release some equity and of course a steady flow of buyers from Canberra and surrounds looking to take advantage of the pricing and still be within reach to their existing work in Canberra.”

After a four-month search in Canberra for land for her daughter, Maria De La Hidalga expanded her search to Goulburn and was so excited to secure a lot at Blakelys Run at the launch event.

Maria’s daughter and her husband currently live in Canberra and are planning to expand their family, so they were looking for space. Maria thought the lots at Blakelys Run were perfect for them. “The land sizes are larger than other places we looked at and I was also really happy with the price in comparison.”

First thing that attracted Maria to Blakelys Run was the premium location in Goulburn. “Goulburn has everything that a bigger city has, it’s all there. The hospital, the university, schools, shops. I like the location in the middle of Sydney and Canberra. My daughter’s head office is in Sydney so it’s very convenient.”

Maria’s daughter and her husband are now planning their dream home at Blakelys Run and couldn’t be more excited.

DevCore are planning the next land release and expect to bring more land to the market in June. The lots to be released will again be over 700m2 and expected to suit families looking for a great community lifestyle.  To stay up to date, visit
