David Reid Homes Tamworth Region celebrated the opening of their new display home last Saturday! The team from David Reid Homes head office, including managing director, Ken Beissel, attended. There was an exciting turnout of visitors with over 150 people in total who came to see this beautiful, luxury home. It’s always great to have locals and non-locals get together on an occasion like this to celebrate. After building a custom-built home such as this gorgeous dwelling, it’s especially rewarding for the custom home builders Tamworth team. It was a fun day for all ages and there was something for everybody, including a sausage sizzle and prizes! The David Reid Homes team were pleased to be able to look through plans that people had brought with them. That’s what Kieron and Phillip from David Reid Homes Tamworth do.

There were people with sloping blocks and narrow blocks, retired folk, empty nesters, small families, young families, and some not so young families. Of course, each person has their own needs and that’s what being a custom home builder in Tamworth is all about. It’s the whole concept of “Raising the Standard”, which is the mainstay of the entire David Reid Homes Australasia franchise.

A Luxury Home – Can you Afford NOT to Build One? | David Reid Homes

Why Build A Luxury Home?

David Reid Homes Luxury HomeThere are lots of reasons that people want to build a luxury home. Some would say that it goes without even considering that everyone wants to live in a luxury home. So why don’t people do it more often? Often when people are building their first homes, they are on a fairly tight budget. This doesn’t mean that they can’t have luxury homes. The interesting thing about building a first home is that many people assume that they will have to build a project or ‘cookie-cutter’ home from one of the mass-producing builders. We’re not going to name them here but you know the ones! They are easily identified because they will give you a list of plans and layouts which look great in the booklet, but you’re quite limited to what they have and they’ll have a price against each one which may look very attractive.

All is often not what it seems…

So you go and tour their display home. You walk through and compare it with the images in the booklet and it looks far better it person! It has high ceilings, a more luxurious bathroom with superior fittings, the kitchen has a chef’s oven, granite benchtop, top-of-the-line taps and plumbing, dishwasher, fashionable exhaust fan over the stove, ducted to the outside, extra windows, beautiful tiles, carpets, air conditioning, landscaping, fencing, and luxurious light fittings. The whole nine yards. luxury home needed for sloping blockThen you sit down with the salesperson and say, “I want to build this house on my block of land.” You show them the map and photographs of the block that you are so proud of and the salesperson says, “Yes of course we can build on that.” They don’t tell you that because your building site is fifty metres from the boundary or because you have a sloping block your building costs will be much higher. They don’t tell you that the fittings and accessories in the display home are top of the line… That they will cost you thousands of  dollars extra and way above the prices that are shown in the catalogue. They don’t tell you that it may be difficult to get subcontractors into your area, or that it will cost more to get them there because your block may be further out than where they normally build. That is of course unless you ask about all of these things. Many people who aren’t experienced in buying or building homes don’t know the correct questions to ask to get the full picture. You may be left with a false impression that you are going to get what appears to be a luxury home for a bargain price; that is until you are further down the track.

An expensive home is not a luxury homeAn expensive home is not a luxury home

Suddenly, you’re faced with a much more expensive home than you first expected and when it comes down to it you’re still getting that ‘cookie-cutter’ home that looks like thousands of others. Remember the song, “Little Boxes”? Assuming that you do get this house built, you will regularly be having people come to visit who say, “Our house is just like this! Is this the “XYZ” design from ABC builders?” And guess what? It certainly is! These same people can probably give you a list of half a dozen other people they know who have exactly the same house. So, here you are with one of the many “Little Boxes”. Just like in the song. And you know what? If you had come to David Reid Homes with the same total budget that this ‘cookie-cutter’ home cost you, you could have had a luxury home, unique to your family’s needs. Built for maximum use of the natural aspect and environment for economical and environmentally friendly passive climate control. Your David Reid Homes custom home builder would have considered the best design aspects to suit your particular needs and block and how your house will fit. Visitors will come to your David Reid Homes luxury home and say, “Wow! Your home is completely different. You’ve got fantastic views, passive solar and cross ventilation, and everything just looks and feels right. The lighting and fittings are really great quality. This home has your character written all over it! I wish I’d had David Reid Homes build my home.” So by all means, look at other builders. Check out exactly what you get for your money. And then when you’re sure what your house is really going to cost, call your local David Reid Homes luxury home builder. It may be the best building decision that you ever made.

Fraser Coast’s Stunning New Display Home | David Reid Homes

Spectacular Luxury Home by David Reid Homes Hervey Bay

The housing market on the Fraser Coast has been enriched with the opening of a stunning new David Reid Homes Fraser Coast Display Home! The stylish new display in Hervey Bay offers a generous four-bedroom home with a spacious open and airy feel. “There is a very strong zonal design approach in this home with the parent’s retreat set away from the formal and informal living areas”. David Reid Homes Hervey Bay director Tony Stallard said. The secondary bedrooms and main bathroom are located in a separate wing, which connects with the communal living areas. The unique design is to be expected from luxury builders of the caliber of Tony and his team. Once you enter the home through a covered porch area, there is a large open entry which creates a sense of occasion on arrival. From this entry, you walk through to an open living area, kitchen, and dining and takes in views of the spacious outdoor alfresco area.

These zones have an easy flow throughout

The zones are not rigid spaces but rather have an easy flow throughout right down to the multipurpose room. This flow extends to the outdoor living area which is ideally suited to the bay-side lifestyle. “People live differently today and no longer feel the need to have separate rooms cut off from each other. There has been a huge shift to open plan living in recent years as people’s lifestyles have changed and become much busier,” Tony said. Sometimes offering people less actually gives them a lot more. By removing the unnecessary walls throughout the home we have created a spacious, easy living custom built home.

Luxury Home Builders take a Different Approach

Our design approach is to think about how people live day-to-day and then incorporate features into a home. The beauty of being custom home builders is that we can build what best suits the owners and their families. The ‘Barwon’ is a prestigious home design from our extensive range of homes on offer by David Reid Homes. The range of designs is extensive, featuring homes designed to suit people building their first home through to large luxurious designs! The kitchen, living, dining, and alfresco areas are the hub of the ‘Barwon’. Externally, the combination of earthy tones and painted texture finish, combined with Colorbond roofing creates a very strong street presence.

Tony Stallard has certainly made an impact on the Central Coast with this stunning new Display Home!

DAVID REID HOMES SHOALHAVEN BEACH HIDEAWAY LUXURY HOME

Shoalhaven Luxurious Hyams Beach Hideaway | David Reid Homes

David Reid Homes Shoalhaven Beach Hideaway

David Reid Homes Shoalhaven created this incredible hideaway for Jervis Bay home owner, Laura-Lee Chick. Laura-Lee and her family enjoyed many well-deserved breaks in their old fibro beach shack. But with five adult children and seven grandchildren, the family had outgrown their home. This project became a complete knock down rebuild for the Chicks, who still wanted to retain the comfy beach house appeal feel that they had all grown to know and love, but with more space for their ever growing family. Watch the video below for a walk inside this Hamptons inspired home.  Shoalhaven builder David Reid built a magnificent timber home with an open plan design and enough room for all three generations to share! Included in the design are five generous bedrooms, three bathrooms and large open entertainment areas with a feature fireplace and raked ceilings. expansive decks complement restful landscaping and link the outdoors to the comforts of the interior. To add to the spacious decks, they offer incomparable views of Jervis Bay from the upper deck and a perfect year-round home, whether for entertaining or just sitting back and chilling out.

“The brief for this house was a spacious, free-flowing design with large outdoor areas,” according to David Reid. “The homeowners wanted the exterior to reflect a little bit of the Hamptons style,”.

In creating the design, David Reid worked closely with the owners in researching various beach house designs  and incorporating them into this incredible project. The finished product ideally marries an element of formality with the beauty of a casual beachside holiday home. While the finish on the home includes extensive use of white and limed timber, the Jervis Bay environment brings colour, natural character and texture to the entire creation.
The addition of stone compliments the natural surroundings of the ancient volcanic rocks and beautiful golden sands of the area. Ample staircases and added seating on the decks create a relaxing and comfortable environment for the owners and their guests. Laura-Lee loves the spaciousness of the house and particularly the upper deck area.

Many of the developments that became part of the finished project were made as the build progressed. “Custom building is about changes on the run, not just building the home,” David explained. “Our aim is to get it right for the client and achieve the best outcome for them.”

Laura-Lee and her family are thrilled with the way that David has worked with them in a collaborative and understanding manner. The homes kitchen even includes a scullery! This is perfect for Laura-Lee as she is a keen entertainer of numerous guests. The entrance to the ensuite has been built to offer privacy which was one of her main requirements. These changes were seamlessly handled by David and his team as the project was under construction. Hyams Beach presents a magnificent outlook for the home with unobstructed views while the home’s unique and tailored design brings welcome privacy and an air of seclusion. Laura-Lee sums the outcome up perfectly. “It’s just a beautiful, comfortable, easily maintained home.”
