On a winner… the future shapes Halcyon’s new homes
Halcyon’s new collection of homes is already nailing it by winning at two regional Master Builders Housing and Construction Awards in Queensland.
Halcyon Lakeside won the Best Use of Steel Frame Housing Award at the 2019 Master Builders Sunshine Coast Housing and Construction Awards just one week after Halcyon Greens took out best display home in its category at the Gold Coast awards.
Master Builders’ Gold Coast Regional Manager John Duncalfe said the judges were impressed by the display home’s layout, thoughtful features and suitability to the Queensland climate. “There were features we had never seen in any property in that category,” Mr Duncalfe said.
Halcyon’s new range of homes reflects a move toward larger scale living, more flexibility and future-proof design. Aimed at delivering a lifestyle that works for you now and 10 years down the track, these architect designs are based on extensive feedback from our homeowners and buyers.
We’ve incorporated their most common variations and offer customisations to let you design the lifestyle you want.
Halcyon joint managing director Dr Bevan Geissmann said the new collection reflects the Baby Boomer generation’s desire to ‘right-size’ their home as they upsize their lifestyle.
“After 15 years in the lifestyle community sector we understand that one size does not fit all and everyone has their individual needs and desires,” Bevan said. “These homes are the result of listening to our market and taking on board their wants, needs and aspirations.
“A strong message was that they don’t want to sacrifice on space, luxury and comfort as they move into the next chapter of life. “Our kitchens are larger, have more storage space and are designed with entertaining in mind, and there’s greater focus on the master bedroom as a personal sanctuary.”
We’ve also removed the ‘what-if’ factor with each home embracing Livable Housing Design (LHD): practical yet subtle features that anticipate and support changes in mobility. These include wider doorways and halls, step-free entry to the home, hobless shower recesses and ability for grab-rails to easily be fitted in bathrooms.
“This ‘set and forget’ approach removes the hassle and expense of retrofitting while delivering peace of mind about the future,” Bevan said.
Features of the new Halcyon homes include:
Larger bedrooms – master bedroom fits a king-size bed and secondary bedrooms can accommodate a queen-size bed
Larger walk-in robe in master bedroom
Larger indoor and outdoor living areas
Bigger kitchens with more storage space and walk-in pantry
Flexible design options to add extra storage
Optional Bluetooth technology for controlling lighting and keeping tabs on power usage
Option of an outdoor kitchen including BBQ, sink and fridge space on the rear patio
Designed to Silver LHD standard
These home designs will also feature in our two new communities at Logan Reserve and Buderim early next year.
