We’re making more room for your ‘home away from home’
Halcyon has unveiled a luxurious new home design with plenty of space for you and your recreational vehicle. In creating our first-ever RV Homes, we’ve been inspired by Australia’s Grey Nomad phenomenon and the large proportion of our homeowners who have a caravan, motorhome or campervan.
Victorian couple Geoff and Lynn Ellis have been caravanning for more than 20 years and are looking forward to moving into the first RV Home at Halcyon Lakeside at Bli Bli in August. Seeking a better lifestyle in a warmer climate, Geoff and Lynn said their decision to make the “big move north” to Halcyon Lakeside was sealed by Halcyon’s willingness to create an RV Home to accommodate their 22-foot caravan.
“Our caravan is very important, especially to the male member of the family,” Lynne laughed.
“We’ve always had it garaged out of the weather, so Geoff’s prized possession will be well looked after inside our garage at Lakeside. “And when we go away, we can close the door and we know the community is gated and our home will be safe. “We’re looking forward to having that sort of security.”
Their new home is one of three RV-friendly designs unveiled as part of the final stage of homes at Halcyon Lakeside. Featuring a supersized garage, Halcyon’s RV Home allows you to comfortably and securely store your caravan, motorhome or campervan under the one roof.
It makes packing up for the next road trip is as easy as stepping into your garage. Lakeside project director Chris Carley said the introduction of the RV-inspired home design responds to the growing popularity of the caravanning and motorhome lifestyle.
“More than a third of our homeowners have a caravan or motorhome, and they just love being able to take off and explore the country in this way,” Chris said.
“And although there’s already a dedicated caravan and motorhome storage area at Lakeside, we realise that there are homeowners who want to keep their recreational vehicle even closer to home. “This innovative home design gives them the option of living under the same roof as their recreational vehicle, allowing even easier access and greater convenience.”
The RV Home’s huge garage can fit a recreational vehicle alongside your car. An even larger version can accommodate two cars in tandem next to the RV. They are priced from $619,000 and will take shape on sites in a quiet cul-de-sac within Lakeside’s ultimate release, Elevation II.
Homes in the Elevation II release range in size from 185sqm to over 300sqm and are Halcyon’s largest homes to date. All homes have an 8-star energy rating and include high-end luxury inclusions, solar hot water, solar panels, ducted air conditioning and high ceilings as standard.
