...and we are quickly moving into the early stages of autumnal days. The leaves are beginning to change colour once again and quinces and feijoas are burgeoning on the branches. It wasn't a particularly hot summer with ample rain to keep the countryside looking lovely and green and the grass growing well, which is what NZ is known for after all.
At 'Woodlands' we have been kept busy with building over the Summer months and we have residents waiting to move into their brand new homes in April & May. We also have new orders to fill and these homes will be built over the Winter months with new residents moving into their brand new homes, weather permitting, before Santa comes a calling.
We are experiencing a very keen interest in the remaining homes in Stage 2 & Stage 3 currently, with prospective residents keen to look through one of our homes which is coming up for completion in mid April. Because our show home is now sold, this represents a perfect opportunity to have a browse through one of our beautiful and much sought after new homes prior to the residents moving in. This will be only a small window of opportunity as the residents are of course keen to get in and settled and appointments will be required. With the high standard of finishing and the quality of the fittings, new contracts for new homes in Woodlands will no doubt follow soon after.
With the unprecedented run on sales over the last 6 months or so we currently have a reduced number of homes left for sale. Most of these homes are 3 bedrooms and with double garages, ensuites, and north facing dining & living areas. There are also 2 lots of duplex units consisting of 2 bedrooms, an office, ensuite, guest bathroom facilities and all of the other desirable attributes of the other stand alone homes that we have on offer at Woodlands being; solar panels, a 2000ltr under eave rainwater collection tank (for secondary water use), 2.7m high stud throughout, double glazing and fully insulated & carpeted garages. The duplexes will be landscaped to maximise privacy between the two homes, and will benefit fully from the northerly aspect to their living and patio areas, as do all of our homes. Another set of duplex's is planned to be built in Stage 3 also as they really are the perfect solution for those wanting a' not-so-big home', although they are not pokey at 140m2 approx. Please email for design layouts for these duplex units or for any of the stand alone homes we have on offer.
At present our Club House is in the design phase which is very exciting, with our residents' eager to make use of what will be a well thought out space that will lend itself perfectly for multi-purpose use of our community of residents. The associated landscaping to this area will be complementary to the overall 'feel' of the Club House design and will lead harmoniously into the nearby native tree area. This area is also under design by our landscaper and will be known as the 'Serenity Garden'. It is envisaged that it will have seating areas interspersed amongst the established trees and small lawn areas, finished off with a water feature and/or stream, with mass planting of various shrubs and plants. The perfect place to spend an afternoon reading or just soaking up Nature and the birds that abound.
