Build­ing cre­ates the per­fect fam­ily home

Herald Sun - Property - - NEWS -

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.”
