Will the price stay the same once I pay the deposit?

Can I choose the colour scheme of my house?
You are able to choose the interior colour scheme from the range supplied. The carpet, curtains and kitchen bench top are also selected by you.
What are the houses constructed of?
All houses are constructed of quality materials by experienced local builders. All are two or three storey homes with a mixture of brick and weatherboard exteriors. Each home is covered by a 10 year structual warranty. They are fully insulated homes on a concrete floor, with a timber frame and double glazing to all windows and doors.
Is there a Residents Association?
Yes, we will initiate a Residents Association that every household within the development is automatically a member of. This Association will ensure that the neighbourhood standards are maintained and that community activities are organised. The annual levy is fixed at $300 per annum until the end of 2021.
Is there a Body Corp?
No, the terrace homes do not need a Body Corp. In the future when apartments are constructed they will have a Body Corp.
Can I build a front fence?
We provide a master planned community and require front yards to be retained as they were on handover from the builder. There can be no changes to the approved landscape plans which includes all fencing.
Where will I park?
We will clearly state the number of car parks that are purchased with each home so do check this is sufficient for your needs. There is a range of property types and hence a range of parking configurations. There will also be very limited numbers of street parking. Consider that the bus and train station are within easy walking distance.
Can we keep a pet?
In certain circumstances a pet may be allowed but only with the approval from the Residents Association and any relevant Body Corporate. Please refer to the Association Rules if you plan to consider having a pet?
Can I purchase a home with an ensuite?
We have a range of floor plans and some homes do have more than one bathroom. Our 4 bedroom home does have an ensuite.
Will I own the land?
Yes, the townhouses and duplex homes are freehold sites and the land will be owned by the purchaser. The apartments are on a freehold strata title.
Is there a Builders Guarantee?
Your new home comes with the peace of mind of a 10 year structural warranty. All applicable supplier & manufacturer warranties and guarantees will be supplied at the handover.
Is there a show home?
