Smarter designs and smaller lots for Melbourne’s west

November 27, 2018 | IN Media Release and News | BY AVID | 2 min read

Small lot housing is driving Melbourne’s greenfield market with local demand for low-maintenance, affordable living continuing to fuel an eight-year drop in median lot sizes from 514m2 in 2009 to 405m2 in 2017.[1]

In Diggers Rest, AVID Property Group (AVID) has tapped into this small lot trend with its recently released Orbit Homes Tempo Living collection at Bloomdale.

AVID Property Group Senior Development Manager Chris Monahan said, as a key player in Melbourne’s greenfield market, AVID was seeing the benefits of partnering with builders such as Orbit Homes to produce smaller, smarter and affordable homes.

“The Tempo Living homes are a well-designed and well-priced product, which offer a unique opportunity for buyers to snap up some of the best-located blocks in Bloomdale’s masterplanned community,” Mr Monohan said.

“Following its success in Bloomdale in early 2017, the Tempo Living collection offers three-bedroom house and land packages, priced from $442,340, all within 45 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD.”

Orbit Homes Sales and Marketing Director Paul Millson said smart design and functionality can go a long way in making homes on smaller blocks feel spacious.

“We have a dedicated team working on the functionality and layout of our Tempo Living designs to ensure we maximise the use of space, open planning and low maintenance living to meet consumer’s accommodation needs,” Mr Millson said.

“As the dream of quarter-acre blocks fades into the past, people are seeing the value of living within an existing community.

“These homes may have a smaller yard, but we ensure the lots are integrated into well located communities like Bloomdale with surrounding parks, amenity, open space and infrastructure.”

The Tempo Living fixed house and land packages offer all the perks of a stylish home design, with the benefit of living within Bloomdale’s masterplanned community.
