Often buyers assume building a brand new home is beyond their budget or something for later in life. However new residential communities are providing buyers with the opportunity to build their dream home much earlier and more affordably than first thought.

Hunter based property company the McCloy Group create national award-winning masterplanned communities. They have a true passion for developing quality and sustainable environments in which people love to live and 8 are located right here in the Hunter! One paving the way in new residential development is Heritage Parc near Maitland, so much so it was named the state’s best residential development at the 2014 UDIA Awards.

If you haven’t seen Heritage Parc for yourself, it is worth a look and can come as quite a pleasant surprise. Over half of the site has been dedicated to open space featuring 11 parks and playgrounds and expansive waterways interconnected by cycleways and walking tracks. The neighbourhood is home superior facilities, which when complete will include picnic amenities, a community garden, a dog exercise area, sporting fields and an outdoor art gallery. For the Milani Family, Heritage Parc was a breath of fresh air in their search for a home for their growing family.

“My family and I were looking for our first family home to build. We searched high and low all through Newcastle and the Hunter Valley when we came across Heritage Parc. When we first drove into Heritage Parc and saw all the greenery we fell in love (but were worried it would be out of our price range given how beautiful it is). When we got into the sales office and met Jenni she helped us more than we could of imagined, answered all questions, we also told her our budget and to our delight, Heritage Parc was in our budget! We fell in love with a water lot but had to wait for it to be released. 2 years later our house is complete and we still till this day love driving into our estate and love seeing it build up. We are always recommending the estate to everyone. Thanks McCloy Group for this beautiful estate” explains Ellena Milani.

For their young family Heritage Parc was a surprisingly affordable option to achieve their dream home with immaculate features, instead of the time and money they’d need to put into renovating an existing property. It gets better, the McCloy Group are currently undertaking construction of a new playground to be unveiled this spring, which will be home to double crawl tunnel, knotted rope climber, tube mound slide and more!
