Terrace home surge as buyers seek out ‘the best of both worlds’

October 26, 2018 | IN Media Release and News | BY AVID | 3 min read

The lure of ‘designer low maintenance’ living and flexible indoor-outdoor styles has buyers looking to the latest in terrace home designs now available at AVID Property Group’s Harmony community on the Sunshine Coast.

Terrace homes have surged in popularity across the country in recent years, with 17 per cent of all Australian building approvals in 2017 being terrace houses or townhouses 1 – up from 12 per cent in 2012.

Proud new homeowner Anne, originally from South Australia, said it was the freedom – and quality – of the design that set the terrace houses apart for her at Harmony.

“I loved how flexible the builders were about the design of the terrace – having sufficient natural light in my home is important to me and they were able to present me with a range of options,” Anne said.

“I chose to have a seven-metre high ceiling with a sky light, which will allow my home to have an ‘inside-outside’ feel to it, something my kids and I will really enjoy.

“A terrace home was a very practical and functional design that I knew would suit my family’s lifestyle without compromising on design.

“I hadn’t considered a terrace home, but it was through talking to Simon at Edge Designer Homes and seeing the premium designs on offer, that I found a home that suited me.

“I feel like Harmony is the best of both worlds – while it is close to beaches, schooling, shops and restaurants, it offers a close-knit community environment that is really important for me. I found exactly what I was looking for in my terrace home at Harmony.”

AVID Property Group General Manager Queensland Bruce Harper said the terrace homes gave buyers the convenience of low maintenance inner city living, with all the space and community feel of the Harmony community – without compromising on high-end design.

“The terrace homes that our Display World builders are delivering have all been designed to celebrate the state’s tropical climate and the alfresco living lifestyle that we are known for on the Sunshine Coast,” Mr Harper said.

“With a range of contemporary and spacious designs, homebuyers don’t have to worry about maintaining big back yards with terrace homes designed to take advantage of Harmony’s vast community spaces.

“Terrace homes are among the most highly-sought after designs in Australia due to their versatility in combining the best of both worlds – a house and an apartment – with many terrace homes uniquely designed to offer buyers up to four spacious bedrooms, without compromising on living space.

“Our Display World builders are committed to providing buyers with the opportunity to personalise their homes, with skylights and internal voids some of the most popular high-end inclusions – it really is designer low maintenance living at its best.”

Terrace homes in stages two to five at Harmony are all within easy walking distance to the Grand Linear Park. Edge Designer Homes’ park facing two storey terrace homes feature three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two-car garage and start from $515,000.
