Planning underway for Hanley homes
Backed by a long-standing reputation for building award-winning affordable houses throughout Queenstown and the Central Otago region, Jennian Homes Queenstown is offering design options for those looking to nest or rest in Hanley’s Farm subdivision.
Hanley’s Farm is a large-scale 1750 lot semirural development on 561 hectares, situated between the foot of The Remarkables mountain range and Lake Wakatipu.
Accessed by State Highway 6, Hanley’s Farm is a convenient 10-minute drive from Frankton, where Queenstown’s airport is located, as well as several large retail developments.
Along with their show home, Jennian will be offering house designs to meet the specific design requirements imposed on buyers of sections in the subdivision.
“With the first four section releases selling out fast, we are fielding numerous enquiries and working with clients to design their homes, so construction can begin as soon as titles are released,” Shane Hamilton says.
“People are wanting to start looking at designs that are suitable for the subdivision. “There are specific design guidelines to meet; you can’t just build anything.
“People can talk to us about what those requirements are.”
Once a design is finalised Jennian can provide a quote so a client knows exactly what their new home will cost before building starts, while also working towards an agreed completion date once a building contract is signed.
With no further subdivision stage releases planned for 2017, the main focus of the developers will be delivery of the first four stages.
Despite the number of sections included in the development, Hanley’s Farm is designed to maintain wide roads, view corridors and open spaces where children can enjoy a “free-range” childhood within a safe community with plenty of parks and playgrounds.
Walking and cycling tracks within Hanley’s Farm linking with the extensive Queenstown Trail network will also provide the opportunity for healthy family recreation.
The new two-lane Kawarau Falls Bridge at Frankton is expected to open late this year, eliminating the present bottle-neck of the old single lane timber bridge.
Each Jennian Homes franchise guarantees its workmanship; clients have the assurance of a 10 year Master Build Guarantee as well as additional supplier warranties and guarantees, up to a period of ten years.
The hundreds of highly acclaimed awards Jennian Homes have won over many years in the annual Master Builders House of the Year Awards affirm the quality of workmanship and the innovative designs reflected in homes they have completed.
“Our promise to clients is that all our houses are built to an award winning standard.”
Jennian Homes Queenstown and Central Otago’s current show home at 27 Jones Avenue, Shotover Country is open Tuesday to Saturday, 12pm to 4pm; this will be replaced early next year by the new show home in Hanley’s Farm stage one development.
“People are welcome to come and talk to our local team Dylan Thomas and Bob Schonk about their Hanley’s Farm options.”
Shane Hamilton is an architectural designer who co-owns Jennian Homes Queenstown and Central Otago franchise with his brother Carl who is a qualified builder.
The brother’s complementary skills make a great match for owning and running the businesses.
“The partnership works extremely well,” Shane Hamilton says.
