The Ellenbrook philosophy is to integrate the community with its natural environment and in many ways is a reworking of the historic European village, its focuss on people rather than regimented housing or land profiteering aiming to eventually have about 30,000 residents living in 10,000 homes.

All homesites are fully deep sewered and boast state-of-the-art fibre optics, including a unique community intranet. Private security is permanently on patrol.
