For over 12 years it remained vacant, awaiting a time for the Invermay couple to proceed building their dream home.
For a home years in the making, there was every chance it would never live up to their expectations, but the impressive façade, amazing floor plan and beautiful finishes resulted in a stunning home with all the right touches.
“The best part of the whole experience was the flexibility, we could change whatever we wanted and nothing was a problem for Hotondo Homes,” Debra said.
“We spoke to another builder and they were not flexible at all. We wanted to make the home ours, there were a few specific things we really wanted because it was an acreage block, and Hotondo Homes accommodated them all.”
The stunning Stockton 322 is an incredible acreage home featuring four bedrooms, three living areas, two bathrooms and a powder room. With a few adjustments including larger windows to take in the beautiful views, bigger bedrooms and even the installation of a wood heater, the couple are delighted to call this place home.
“We got along really well with the team at Hotondo Homes Ballarat, who were even able to take us down to a display home to show us something tangible,” Frank said.
“Our block also had a few overlay and sloping issues, and the team were able to walk us through how they would address them.”
A mix of beautiful, neutral colours is seen throughout the home. The white walls and light coloured tiles and kitchenware creates a spacious and open feel, which works in harmony with the striking floorboards and custom wood heater that help add a warmth to the area.
Topped off with beautiful pieces of wooden furniture and high quality finishes, the charming home emits a modern yet country charm.

For Frank and Debra, the large walk-in pantry, big ensuite and the entry located to the side of the home were all must-haves.
“Luckily for us, this design ticked a lot of boxes with just the standard inclusions, and we then added few of our own,” Frank said.
The expansive alfresco space, large double garage, powder room for guests and plenty of storage room were other favourite features for the Invermay couple.
“Both of our girls moved out of home during the building process, meaning we have even more room now for friends, family and other guests to come around,” Debra laughs.
“Another great part is that one of the extra bedrooms has its own walk-in-robe, which is really good for our guests. There is so much room, we have even started calling one end of the house the ‘west wing’!”
The Ballarat team were awarded the 2015 Hotondo Homes Builder of the Year award, which is reflected in the quality build of Frank and Debra’s home. Living just down the road for the majority of the construction period meant the couple were able to enjoy watching their home go up from start to finish.
“Each stage that finished was another burst of excitement, it was great to watch it all come together,” Frank said.
“Brett was really fantastic to deal with, anything we wanted, he would accommodate. He adjusted the price as we added things, and they were always quick to get back to us.”
While Frank and Debra had completed several renovations and extensions previously, this was their first newly built home. Their children may have moved out before they had a chance to enjoy it, but the couple are loving their new home shared with their cat, dog, cows and even alpacas.
From a fleeting thought 12 years ago to the beautifully constructed design Frank and Debra now have before them, Hotondo Homes Ballarat have delivered a dream home that does not disappoint.
