FAM­I­LIES look­ing for their “for­ever home” are see­ing value in get­ting back to na­ture with the dream house and ru­ral out­look now an af­ford­able op­tion at Villa­wood’s King­sholme acreage com­mu­nity Mon­tego Hills.

Villa­wood Prop­er­ties ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor Tony John­son said build­ing on acreage had be­come a pop­u­lar choice for young fam­i­lies, with land start­ing from $329,900.

“With the price gap be­tween acreage and sub­ur­ban hous­ing tight­en­ing, this lifestyle has never been more achiev­able, if you know where to look,” he said.

Scott and Siob­han Hard­ing (pic­tured above with their chil­dren) had been look­ing for a new home for more than two years be­fore de­cid­ing to buy at Mon­tego Hills. “We’ve al­ways lived on the Gold Coast but with three kids, we were look­ing for some­where with more space for the kids to play and grow and the abil­ity to build a big­ger home,” Mr Hard­ing said.

“We loved the idea of be­ing able to de­sign our own home that was truly ours. We’ve de­signed a con­tem­po­rary style home, with a kids’ quar­ters, and open-plan liv­ing that links the in­side and out.”
