Flagstone Community Association president and mother Donna-Marie Jarden moved to the area in 2016.

Her 23-year-old son Blair and his partner Victoria, built their first home in Flagstone two years ago.

Mrs Jarden said she was thrilled to be living close to her son in an area with strong potential.

"Flagstone has a great social and family lifestyle, as well as good job and learning opportunities close to home. We have many young couples and families moving to be part of our community because of the life balance on offer," she said.

Director of Imagine Childcare Lara Van Ling said it was wonderful to spend occasions like Mother's Day close to her son Timothy who recently moved into his new home.

"We've lived here for many years so we were excited to start a local childcare business and work in the environment where we've raised our children," she said.

The mother-son relationship has gone one step further with Julie-Anne James and her family moving into a Flagstone home in months, next door to a block which her son Hayden and his fiance intend to purchase.

"Moving to Flagstone has given my husband and I an opportunity to own our first home, designed exactly how we want it, and we can't wait to move and get settled," she said.

"The building process has been very enjoyable for our whole family, so it was a natural choice for my son when he was deciding on his first home. We are all very much looking forward to life in Flagstone."

Peet managing director and CEO Brendan Gore said Flagstone's potential continued to grow with the sod turning of a Coles supermarket completed and construction of a water play park underway.

Mother's Day was celebrated across Australia on Sunday, May 12.
