AS THE EAGLE FLIES: HOME VILLAGE ROAD TRIP

Eagle-Trip-Map

The decision has been made, it’s time you upgrade your living situation and now you need to see what’s available. While searching online is quite easy and convenient, it’s not the same as seeing it in the flesh, even if you do get to view the virtual tour. So the next best thing is to pack the family in to the car and venture out to a display village to see the real thing.

Usually the objective is to see as many properties and homes as possible to get an idea of what you want, how the layouts will fit the space you have, or whether buying a home & land package would be better. Now you need to plan and research the display villages you would like to visit, and with many scattered across NSW, it can sometimes be difficult to work out where to start.

Display Home in Focus – Eagle Homes Whimbrel

The Whimbrel at Oran Park is a testament to the material creativity that Eagle Homes possess – with a blend of both running bond and stackbond by PGH alternating in colour, and complimented by hints of timber and render. The front façade is a tasteful and well-balanced entry to our gorgeous display home, aimed at combining both form and function. With a notably more modern finish, this façade is tied together by its large verandah portion that signifies the grand entry to the home. A Colorbond roof supplied by Adams Direct sits atop proudly and brings a durable yet sleek finish to the top of the home.

The imported rustic tiling from Abruzzo Ceramics Pty Ltd combines the colours of both bricks and is repeated in the alfresco to the rear, tying both sides of the Whimbrel home together and bringing familiarity throughout. The warm notes of the timber are continued through the home and provide warm and safety in such a long-trusted material.

Display Home in Focus – Eagle Homes Laysan

The beautiful Laysan home at Middleton Grange showcases the vast yet harmonious material palette Eagle Homes like to express in their show homes. Creating a modern design piece that pays tribute to new age styling whilst creating a classic, home style feel, the choice of materials creates an exquisite entry for the front façade that invites visitors to enter in a warm and appealing manner.

Brickwork by PGH signifies solidity and is a testament to centuries of trust in the reliability and diversity of masonry. This is accentuated with the duragroove cladding by BGC, painted to match the oaky colour of the bricks, something that is matched by the warm timber of the sectional garage door by B&D Doors and the stunning front entry door from Hume Doors. Floating above is a beautifully handcrafted and bookmatched feature timber piece that creates a warm and unique entry. On top of this rests the classic hip roof with terracotta tiles from Boral Roofing, which ties the blend of traditional and modern together; bearing both form and functionality. The front façade portion is raised to signify grandeur and creates the welcoming aspect of the home, a place to meet and greet guests in something impressive but still proportionate in scale.

Will council amalgamation affect my Development Application?

In the most comprehensive local government reform in 100 years, NSW saw the amalgamation of several councils on 12 May 2016. 40 local councils disappeared overnight to be replaced by 19 new super councils. Whilst most councillors and senior staff have been dismissed in the councils that have been abolished under the new council amalgamations, the general staff remain in place and therefore so do the fundamental services previously offered.

NSW Government has assured residents that the new councils will continue to provide services such as community development programs, assessing development applications, collecting rubbish and recycling and processing rates, fees and other charges.
