Block Types at The Hales Explained

Choosing the block of land for your new home is an exciting step in your home building journey. Finding a community that meets your wants for your lifestyle is the first stage in deciding where you should call home. Think about what is important to you and your family. Perhaps its tranquility and peace from the hustle and bustle of the CBD or perhaps it's finding a spot nestled in nature and close to all the amenity you need. The Hales offers all of this. Close proximity to Perth City while still being in modern suburbia, surrounded by greenery, open spaces and beautiful parklands.

Many residents choose to call The Hales home because of the surrounding quality public open spaces, where all houses are centred around a generous strip of parkland. The Hales is designed to retain the natural features of the site; built around existing native Marri and Jarrah trees and the trickling waters of Crumpet Creek.

Once you’ve decided on the location of your new home, deciding on the type of block you’d like to construct your home on is the next step on your new home journey. Familiarising yourself with the type of home floor plan that will work for you and your family is the best way to begin. Start by exploring the range of display homes at The Hales Display Village, showcasing a range of 3 and 4 bed homes as well as single and two storey homes in a variety of layouts. The type of floor plan including the house frontage and square meterage requirements may determine the size of block you need. Think about if you’d like a large back garden or one that is low maintenance and smaller in size. Do you prefer bedrooms at the back or a separate wing for guests? Give thought to how you like to live and how you see yourself living in the coming years. Having so many open spaces close by to explore, means many residents at The Hales choose to save money and opt for a block with smaller garden space leaving more room for space inside the house like a theatre or extra bedroom.

When it comes to your block, there are typically two main block types seen at The Hales; 1) The cottage block and 2) The traditional block. A cottage block may also be referred to as a narrow block and is often an affordable option for many first home buyers or those homeowners looking for low maintenance living. Modern cottage homes are well designed and optimise a smaller block size with open plan living and all the amenities you’re looking for in a new home. Typically frontages range from 8.5m and 12m; something to look out for when choosing your new home floor plan!

A traditional block is often larger, over 450 sqm and offers space for a large family home and garden, sometimes even space for a pool! While these blocks offer size, maintenance can often be more, so think about how you want to live in your home and what is important for you to find in your new home block of land. Frontages on a traditional block can vary from 13m plus. Due to their larger size, traditional blocks can achieve a four bedroom home with a games room and theatre room. What's not to love!

No matter what your lifestyle aims are, choosing to partner with a quality land developer can help to guide you on your journey to constructing your new home. Visit land for sale at The Hales or call into our Display Village to explore the house and land options available.
