Family Home - Fairly Priced

AUSTRALIA’S premier four-day home show opens at Melbourne Exhibition Centre. Housing Industry Association marketing manager Shelley Tilbrook said this year’s HIA Home Show would feature a new award winners showcase of “the best-of-the-best” home designs and building products. “The HIA Australian Housing Awards showcases creativity, innovation and excellence in construction and design,” she said. “The building and renovation showroom will showcase samples of the latest building and home improvement products, enabling visitors to see and touch new products entering the market.” Ms Tillbrook said industry experts such as Money Magazine editor Effie Zahos would attend to chat with keen renovators. “For people planning a renovation, Ask an Expert will be a free consultation service at the show. “Bring your plans and ideas and get specialist renovation advice from HIA builders, HIA GreenSmart tradesmen, interior designers and HIA kitchen and bathroom designers.” Ms Tillbrook said a V-Zug Cooking School was always a hit with aspiring chefs at the show. “In a new format, the intimate cooking classes will take place every half hour when visitors will learn gourmet recipes, prepare fresh produce and see the latest kitchen technology in use. “Plus, visitors will have a chance to win prizes including a V-Zug $25,000 kitchen appliance package.” Ms Tilbrook said a Home Show Club was

Metricon’s smart,stylish homes M

etricon has opened the doors to three stylish, spacious, affordable display homes at Leopold’s Estuary estate. The company, which describes itself as Australia’s leading home builder, said the Lancaster 25, Belize 24 and Lindeman 28 displays offered an “inspiring showcase of great options for affordable family living”. The designs maximise flexible family living to provide options for everyone. The new Lancaster 25 features an “unexpected yet very practical layout” with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living zones. “Upon entry to the Lancaster you will catch a glimpse of the magnificent lifestyle on offer,” Metricon says. “With a direct view from the entry down to the integrated dining, family and kitchen area, visitors enjoy a sense of space and light that will excite those with a keen eye for contemporary design. “This bright and insightful design caters for every family member but particularly the entertainers, with multiple options for formal and informal, indoor and outdoor gatherings. This family haven has truly been designed to offer the best in modern living – without breaking the bank.” Metricon says the Belize is a “brilliantly designed home” for smaller blocks. “Light and airy in summer yet

cosy in winter, the insightful design is perfect for families, with the smart flow allowing kids to occupy one end of the house and the grown-ups the other.” The Lindeman is described as catering for every family member “with living spaces that are both luxurious and flexible”. “This very smart bright and insightful design fits on a 14metre-wide block and has an abundance of living and entertaining areas designed for the growing family.” Metricon regional west sales and marketing manager Simon Lofts says the display homes present a “very distinctive designer feel within really liveable floor-plans that perfectly suit the land allotment dimensions land developers in major estates are selling today”. “These homes have the wow factor. They are for those wanting something different, those who want to enjoy fashionable, contemporary living.” Simon described Estauary as an exciting display centre in one of the Geelong’s fastest growing areas. “Estuary is a fantastic masterplanned community that has already proven a success for Metricon, with a number of customer homes already under construction in the Estate.” More information is available by visiting the Metricon display centre in the estate at Paraffin Drive, Leopold, www.metricon.com.au or by phoning 1300 Metricon.

or a practical family home design with plenty of luxurious extras, buyers can’t go past Hotondo Home’s Grenada 207. Hotondo’s Mike and Ivanka Baric and Brad Nation recently opened the Grenada 207 at Leopold’s Estuary Estate. The home features relaxed and comfortable open-plan design with the front dedicated to living and entertaining. A large kitchen is attached to an open-plan meals and living area, which opens out to a stunning alfresco space ideal for entertaining or enjoying warm summer evenings. The Grenada 207 is impeccably designed to maximise space and privacy with the back of the home designed for sleeping with three large bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a luxurious en suite and a spacious walk-in robe. A double garage with interior access completes the home’s convenient design.

Achievable Porter Davis Homes P orter Davis Homes is the ideal choice of builders for buyers wanting a sea change lifestyle on the region’s stunning coastline. The award-winning company has been building in the Geelong region for more than two years and just opened a stunning new display centre at Estuary Estate in Leopold. Porter Davis properties suit a variety of budgets and lifestyles with house and land packages available from $350,964. Porter Davis director Paul Wolff says the affordable pricing makes a new home or beach house “suddenly seem a lot more achievable”. “Usually when you think of a new home or a beach house, dollar signs sort of come to mind as well,” he says. “We are offering beautiful homes right in the heart of the Victorian coastal wonderland and they are very affordably priced.” Paul encourages potential buyers to visit one of Porter Davis’ four new display homes at Estuary Estate, including Regatta and Livingstone from the Access range and Wembley and Foxley from the Lifestyle range. “These homes are stunning, there’s no doubt about it but they are also more affordable than they were this time last year because we’ve rolled out a price rewind across our entire range.” He says a “Porter Davis price rewind” has reduced house and land packages by as much as $42,000. “As Australia’s most professional

builder we take our role very seriously in leading the market by example and we wanted to do everything possible to help address housing affordability,” he says. Paul says the Porter Davis promotional campaign is simplified to make it easier for buyers to compare values. “There are a lot of builders out there offering a lot of different promotions and value-add ons,” he says. “At the end of the day, you want to choose the builder because they are good to deal with, build quality homes and can offer you a design that you love because it enhances your lifestyle. “These things should be the comparison, not the value of the promotion because they will ensure you have a great building experience and a fantastic new home. “Unfortunately, a lot of builders muddle the promotion with the base price and confuse buyers with a perception of inflated value.” Porter Davis Simplicity offers a wide range of luxury upgrades at no cost and buyers also receive $10,000 off total site costs and estate covenants, he says. House and land packages are available through Porter Davis at Estuary Estate from $350,964 or $324,464 for first-home buyers who qualify for the government’s $26,500 First Home Owner Grant.

Dennis Homes offer ‘liveability’ R egional home buyers can combine the serenity of rural living and a modern home design with Dennis Family Homes’ Cosgrove 321 Boulevard and Princeton 251 Tempo display homes at Leopold’s Estuary Estate. Dennis Family Homes area manager Phillip Shaw says both quality designs feature four double bedrooms, including a master with an en suite, as well as a double garage and a spacious outdoor entertaining area. Cosgrove is generously proportioned and can be built on lots with a minimum width of 16 metres. Princeton is suitable for block of just 14 metres width. “These designs suit the estate, which features allotments of 14 and 16 metres and meet the growing trend of regional areas developing on narrower blocks,” he says. “Amongst the Cosgrove’s many attributes are its roominess and liveability, which make it an ideal second home, whilst the Princeton offers tremendous affordability for first-home buyers. “In addition to all standard inclusions, we are offering the Cosgrove and Princeton with free carpets and tiles for a limited time only.”
