Quality and affordability guaranteed
Affordable sections in a prized part of New Zealand are on offer at Queenstown’s Hanley’s Farm and award winning Stonewood Homes ueenstown is busy crafting quality built homes that reflect the needs of first home owners.
Taking pride of place at the base of the iconic Remarkables Mountains, surrounded by rural land, Lake Wakatipu and within close proximity to walking tracks, Hanley’s Farm offers residents a family focused environment for both the enjoyment of the young and young at heart.
Located opposite the skifield road, 10 minutes from Frankton and nestled next to Jacks Point Settlement, Hanley’s Farm is a beautifully landscaped subdivision with fruit trees lining the streets, and a river running around the property’s edge lined with boulders and tussock grass giving presenting an alpine impression.
With many new homes underway for clients and more to start in stages about to be released, Stonewood Homes Queenstown’s sales manager, Emily Wills, says one of the greatest things about the subdivision is that a Design Review Board must approve all house plans to ensure there is not a ‘sameness’ about the homes.
“They’re really encouraging a wide range of cladding and roofing materials which lends itself to this area.
“They have kept light reflective values down so there’s nothing out there that’s white. The roofs and claddings are all dark coloured– things that really suit the drama of the environment.”
Emily explains that while there is a wide range of section sizes, many of them are long narrow sites that lend themselves very well to Stonewood Homes Urban Style range of plans.
The latest release of sections range from $305,000 and $325,000 and Stonewood Homes is building quality four-bedroom homes with two bathrooms for $350,000.
“Where else can you buy something in Queenstown for that sort of money? So we are certainly affordable—and clients are getting that Stonewood Homes quality with higher R-value insulation and the superior grade double glazed windows. We build a really warm house, which makes such a difference in this climate.”
With much thought given to design and the smart use of space, the master bedroom is typically a very generous 16sqm with the other three bedrooms accommodating queen sized beds.
Bosch appliances, Italian Paffoni tapware, Newtech Bathroomware and local designer kitchens feature with Stonewood builds.
“We use 18mm joinery in our kitchens for durability—all just that little bit extra with Stonewood.
People can actually come to Stonewood and get a beautiful quality Stonewood built home that will still fall into that first homebuyer market, without compromising on size or quality.
“Many of Queenstown’s subdivisions including Shotover Country, Lake Hayes Estate and Hanley’s Farm are perfect for the Stonewood Homes’ off-the-shelf offerings, which can be developed to suit the customer’s specific needs, budget and site location.”
Emily says that a good percentage of Stonewood Homes Queenstown’s trade and sub-trade contractors have had a strong working relationship with the group builder for the last decade and complete the end-to-end customer experience.
