Building creates the perfect family home
THE idea of getting exactly what they wanted attracted Varghese Chacko and wife Renny to buy a house and land package in the Highlands estate, Craigieburn.
“Instead of getting a house with some of the things we want, we are getting a house with exactly what we want,” Mr Chacko said. ‘We knew that if we bought a house, it probably wouldn’t be our dream house, but if we built one it would be.”
Having the lounge room at the front of the house, opposed to the main bedroom, was just one of the custom design features the couple were looking for.
“My wife really wants her kitchen a certain way,” Mr Chacko said.
“It was just easier to pick from designs than look for the perfect house.”
As for the choice of Highlands, Mr Chacko said it was an easy choice for the pair who are expecting their first child.
“We have a lot of family and friends that already live in and around Highlands,” Mr Chacko said. “It’s amazing what they’ve done with the area. There is a wonderful lake, we are right across the road from a creek, it’s beautiful.
“It’s a place you can live your life.”
