The lure of ‘designer low-maintenance’ living and flexible indoor-outdoor styles has buyers looking to the latest in terrace home designs.
Terrace homes have surged in popularity across the country in recent years, with 17 per cent of all Australian building approvals in 2017 being terrace houses or townhouses – up from 12 per cent in 2012.
Proud new Harmony homeowner Anne (who wanted her surname withheld), is originally from South Australia and says it is the freedom, and quality, of the design that set the terrace houses apart for her at the AVID Property Group estate.
“I loved how flexible the builders were about the design of the terrace – having sufficient natural light in my home is important to me and they were able to present me with a range of options,” Anne says.
“I chose to have a seven-metre high ceiling with a sky light, which will allow my home to have an ‘inside-outside’ feel to it, something my kids and I will really enjoy.
“A terrace home was a very practical and functional design that I knew would suit my family’s lifestyle without compromising on design.
“I hadn’t considered a terrace home, but it was through talking to Simon at Edge Designer Homes and seeing the premium designs on offer, that I found a home that suited me.”
AVID Property Group Queensland general manager Bruce Harper says terrace homes give buyers the convenience of low-maintenance inner city living, with all the space and community feel of the Harmony community – without compromising on high-end design.
“The terrace homes that our Display World builders are delivering have all been designed to celebrate the state’s tropical climate and the alfresco living lifestyle that we are known for on the Sunshine Coast,” Mr Harper says.
“With a range of contemporary and spacious designs, homebuyers don’t have to worry about maintaining big backyards with terrace homes designed to take advantage of Harmony’s vast community spaces.
“Terrace homes are among the most highly sought-after designs in Australia due to their versatility in combining the best of both worlds – a house and an apartment – with many terrace homes uniquely designed to offer buyers up to four spacious bedrooms, without compromising on living space.”
