What is your favourite Hotondo Homes design and why?

We asked the question the big design question to nine of our builders from right across the country, and here are their responses!


Aaron Anstis – Ocean Grove, VIC

I am a big fan of the Esplanade 281. The design centres around the kitchen, family and dining areas, and, if you are lucky enough to have views, this design allows you to capture and frame them beautifully. It is a great home for a growing family, with separate living for the kids downstairs, but communal in its design upstairs.

Gillian Coleman – Bathurst/Orange NSW

We love the new Willowgrove 332! It features the master bedroom at the rear, has loads of storage with walk-in-robes to three bedrooms, a walk-in-pantry which can be converted to a butler’s pantry, storage in the laundry, a large alfresco PLUS four living areas and a study! It’s the perfect design.

Caroline Allen – Inverloch, VIC

I love homes where you are excited to find out ‘what’s around the corner’. Clever study nooks, tucked up retreats, private spaces to read or watch a movie are all clever uses of space, so I love the new Willowgrove 332! The Kirkby 246 floor plan (below) also deserves an honorary mention. These plans are great because they provide a point of difference to the traditional open-plan style homes of today.

Anthony Wolff – Mackay, QLD

The Kirkby 267!  It’s a very suitable plan for indoor/outdoor living which is a must-have feature for many homebuyers, and it remains popular in North Queensland!

design


Adam Sturt – Nowra, NSW

The Marcoola 209 – there is plenty of space for an entire family to enjoy. It’s an open-plan ‘modern’ design that encapsulates everything you need in a home.

design


Amira Willingham – Ballarat, VIC

I have always been a fan on the Stockton 380. It is such a beautiful home that meets the needs of a family with large spacious areas. The mud room is a fantastic area but my favourite is the enormous ensuite, walk-in-robe and retreat areas in the master room.

design


Russell Pearse – Ararat, VIC

The Lansdowne 248 is a practical rural design. The bedrooms are spacious and the large alfresco out the back is perfect for the countryside!

design


Glenda Heath – Port Lincoln, SA

The Hume 263 offers multiple living areas, large bedrooms, practical ensuite configuration, mud room from garage, alfresco which can be expanded, powder room, separate toilet to bathroom, open kitchen/dining/family room, large pantry, decent sized porch and study nook, which is great for parents wanting to monitor children. What more do you need?!

design


Lyndsey Clarke – Central Coast, NSW

My favourite design is the Tarkine 238. It is a large home conveniently shaped to fit on most blocks on the Central Coast due to it’s width. It has a great, practical flow and just seems to make sense. Having the hidden laundry through the pantry is perfect for me. With such a busy lifestyle, to be able to be cooking dinner and throwing a load of washing on at the same time is all too convenient!

When it comes to building family-friendly homes, there are a few key elements to consider.

Family-friendly homes generally have a number of separate living areas to cater for both parents and children. Children’s bedrooms are often set in their own wing, and versatile spaces are available as they become older and family dynamics change.

Most importantly, a good home design will suit your family’s needs. What is perfect for one family may not be right for another, so it is vital to determine what the most important elements are to you.

Hotondo Homes Home Navigator tool can help you find up to nine designs suitable for you based on a short, two-minute questionnaire designed to determine what you need in a home. Below we have listed our own personal top nine family-friendly home designs for you to consider when building your dream home.

 

DOUBLE STOREY HOMES

The Amora 384

The Amora features three separate living areas – one upstairs and two downstairs – to offer plenty of space for a larger family to relax or entertain simultaneously.

family-friendly homes

 

The Hotham 247

The Hotham contains a leisure space upstairs along with a study nook tucked away in the corner, making it an ideal space for children to occupy while parents enjoy the open-plan living downstairs.

family-friendly homes

 

The Lorne 302

If you have younger children you need to keep an eye on, the Lorne may be the one for you. The downstairs semi-private living space is secluded enough from the rest of the home to provide some privacy, but parents can keep an eye on children from the kitchen.

family-friendly homes

 

The Tarwin 297

Maintain your privacy with the Tarwin. Perfect for slightly older families, the Tarwin keeps the children and parent bedrooms separated, upstairs and downstairs.

family-friendly homes

 

SINGLE STOREY HOMES

The Birchgrove 222

Single storey homes that feature a kid’s zone or rumpus around the children’s bedrooms are great family-friendly homes, just like the Birchgrove.

family-friendly homes

 

The Erskine 290

The Erskine features all three children’s bedrooms in a separate wing to the rest of the home. The semi-private lounge space could also be closed off to provide another space for a family to enjoy.

family-friendly homes

 

The Jamieson 222

Just like the Erskine, the Jamieson has all the children’s bedrooms in a separate wing, which also includes a kid’s zone. This versatile space can turn into a bedroom if required.

family-friendly homes

 

The Marcoola 209

The Marcoola offers three distinct zones, the master bedroom area, the living area and the secondary bedroom wing, making it one of our particularly popular family-friendly homes.

 

family-friendly homes

The McRae 250

The McRae is a versatile home where the lounge and kid’s zone can be converted into other rooms like an extra bedroom, home theatre or study, depending on your family’s requirements.
