Should I build a one storey or two storey home at The Hales?

Choosing your new home’s design is an exciting step in your home building journey at The Hales. There is so much to consider during your home buying process with lots of questions to ask yourself, about how you and your family like to live. How many bedrooms do we need in our new home? Is my master bedroom better at the front or the back? Should I choose an open activity space or closed off theatre room? Is a low maintenance backyard better for our busy lifestyle? And so much more. 

Homebuyers often think about building a single storey home when they imagine their new home. Often buyers presume a two storey floor plan is out of reach financially, which isn’t true. There are so many house and land packages that cater to two storey appetites with affordable and stylish options to suit a range of budgets and living styles. Two storey living can be the answer for many families who struggle to meet their living needs in a single storey home. 

Your chosen building partner and Estate Manager can help guide you to explore if a single storey or two storey home suits your block best. Many new home purchasers choose a smaller block with the view to build a two storey home to increase their usable floor space. By choosing a smaller block you may be able to afford to be closer to the amenities that matter more to you, like open spaces, parks and playgrounds. 

The Hales H2 Townhome Precinct is a great example of how a beautifully designed two story home can fit onto a smaller block while retaining style and function. Featuring homes from Terrace, Urban Mews by Ben Trager and Homebuyers Centre, H2 properties start from an affordable $346,840*. H2 provides homebuyers with spacious living areas, modern fixtures and low maintenance living, without compromise and have been the choice for many residents at The Hales.

Two storey homes don’t have to break the bank. Visit The Hales Display Village to see how your block can be transformed by choosing a two storey floor plan. While at the Display Village, you can also view 12 single storey display homes you’re sure to be inspired by. Ideal for first home buyers looking for a great value home or retirees seeking lower maintenance living, there is something for every lifestyle when you open your mind to the opportunities available with two storey living.

Visiting a Display Village is often the best way to begin your home building journey as you have the opportunity to experience a range of floor plans in real time, establishing your likes and dislikes. What you think works on paper, in reality, can sometimes be impractical. Think about your earlier questions; How much square meterage do you require? What frontage does your block need to have to fit your floor plan? Will you be living in the same way in five years? Forward thinking at this early stage can help you to achieve the home you’re dreaming of, nestled in idyllic suburbia, only 15km’s away from Perth CBD.

Explore land for sale at The Hales or visit the display village on Wednesday between 1pm - 5pm and Saturday & Sunday between 1pm - 5pm.
