LUXE FOR LESS AT DISPLAY VILLAGES
According to Master Builders’ chief executive Grant Galvin, display homes of yesteryear were often characterised by stock-standard designs and lacklustre finishes but nowadays, display homes have come of age – featuring striking aesthetics, clever design and lots of space for the family.
“If the award-winning display homes in Master Builders’ 2017 Housing and Construction Awards program are anything to go by, there’s proof you can live in a luxury home for a fraction of the price,” Mr Galvin said.
Master Builders’ display villages at Yarrabilba, Coomera and Pimpama feature the award-winning creations, with Yarrabilba display village boasting Plantation Homes’ Retreat Nouveau Q1, which won this year’s President’s Award in Brisbane and Queensland.
“The contemporary Retreat Nouveau Q1 represents innovation and quality workmanship,” Mr Galvin said.
“Designed for the everyday Queensland family, the home has loads of functional space and storage.
“Indoor living areas and natural light have been cleverly utilised to bring the outside in, while additional features such as the designer kitchen, butler’s pantry, theatre and outdoor living area make it an entertainer’s dream.” Mr Galvin said for function and affordability, the Bulimba 3310 ( pictured on page 11) by Simonds Homes, which won Best Display Home over $551,000 in the Gold Coast Housing and Construction Awards, stood out amongst the entries.
“The Bulimba 3310 at Coomera Retreat display village features a compact design and all the comforts of a family home, with dual living areas on the ground and first floors to enable zoned living,” he said.
“There are also four generously-sized bedrooms, two bathrooms and an indooroutdoor entertaining space.”
