“At Jennian we really know how to maximise liveable space in a home so people can make the very most of their budget.”
Being a preferred builder in the Lockerbie Estate subdivision in Morrinsville has been a dream partnership for Jennian Homes, says director of the Hamilton franchise Matt Faber.
“There is a great synergy because at Jennian Homes our branding is ‘feels like family’ and the development is a master-planned subdivision that is aiming to create a community,” he says. “So by partnering with Lockerbie Estate we can help realise that vision.”
It was during the first Covid-19 lockdown in 2020 that Jennian Homes committed to purchasing a large number of sites in the development.
Despite the uncertainty, the pandemic brought Matt says that seeing the vision of the developer convinced them that it was a development that would experience strong demand and deliver great family living. Jennian Homes is offering several houses and land packages in Lockerbie Estate.
With stage 1 sold out, there are still packages available in stage 1b and stage 2. Matt says the packages have been designed to meet the development design parameters and come with predesigned plans that work well on each site. Homes at all market levels are being offered from two-bedroom homes right up to four-bedroom homes with two living areas and a double garage.
Matt says this ensures anyone from a first home buyer right up to those wishing to downsize can find their dream home. Since Jennian Homes first released product in Lockerbie Estate to the market in 2020 market reception has been outstanding, says Matt.
“Our focus at Jennian Homes has always been to get people into homes so it’s been great to be able to help both locals in Morrinsville and those from further afield into a brand new home.”
He says demand has come from as far afield as Auckland with people seeking lifestyle and the pandemic making many realise they can work from home. Located in the ‘golden triangle’ of Hamilton, Tauranga and Rotorua, Morrinsville is near main centres, he says.
“What Covid-19 has taught us is that people can work from home and perhaps go into the office a couple of days a week.
“So it’s easy to travel to the train line or the other main centres and get to where you need to go fairly easily.”
He says the openness in the subdivision means people feel a sense of living in the countryside. It also protects purchasers’ investment in Lockerbie Estate as do the design covenants.
Jennian Homes is also building a showhome in Lockerbie Estate, which should be open by around April 2022.
Matt says the 160sqm home will showcase Jennian’s clever design and boast three bedrooms, an open plan living/dining/kitchen and a double garage. Clad in brick and Adobo timber it will mix traditional and contemporary elements.
“People often focus on the size of a home but what’s more important is how the space is used.
“At Jennian we know how to maximise liveable space in a home so people can make the very most of their budget,” he says.
Jennian Homes currently has several builds underway and Matt expects to be working in Lockerbie Estate for years to come.
“It’s a long term partnership and one which we are extremely proud to be a part of.”
