Why choose Elmwood?
In the words of Grand Designs presenter, Kevin McCloud, a building ought to hum with the positive energy and commitment it took to build it.
Elmwood is that kind of place.
Infused with the passion and heart of its creator, Brendon Collins (OAM), Elmwood hums with the energy of a place that’s made to last. It rustles with the lightness of its footprint. It buzzes with the vitality of its residents.
Add in award winning sustainable homes and considerable dollar savings and Elmwood just makes sense.
“At its heart, Elmwood is about people, community and the environment. People need to feel connected to where they live. That’s why we’ve designed thoughtful, comfortable, low maintenance and environmentally aware homes in a beautifully landscaped setting that fosters a strong sense of place and belonging. I truly believe that when we feel like we belong, we can all live a happy and balanced life.”
Brendon Collins, Master Builder
A remarkable, groundbreaking development, Elmwood has also received the deserved praise of the building industry.
The combination of high quality construction, commitment to sustainable design, value for money and a strong community focus has resulted in Elmwood being given the Victorian Master Builders’ Excellence in Housing Award Association in 2013 and the North East Victorian Regional Master Builders Award for best integrated housing development in 2013.
Over 60 of Victoria’s most influential architects and designers have visited Elmwood as a case study in medium density energy efficient construction, a testament to the level of care and commitment Brendon Collins and his team have given to the creation of affordable, high quality, sustainable homes in regional Australia.
Beyond the awards, here’s some of the features and benefits you’ll enjoy when you purchase an Elmwood townhouse in Wodonga:

The complex is beautifully maintained and our home is energy efficient, economical and full of natural light. We love living here. We wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.”
