Choosing the right Westwood home: a guide for purchasers

Choosing the right Westwood home

One of Victoria’s fastest growing residential communities, Westwood in Fraser Rise, continues to lure new neighbours through their affordable and diverse range of housing options. 

Because of the project’s popularity amongst locals, it has nearly doubled in size with Westwood Place being created following the success of Westwood Walk. Westwood now makes up the largest master-planned development in the Fraser Rise area with a combined 1,600 lots over 103.45ha. 

The lifestyle on offer at Westwood has been an obvious drawcard for many purchasers and new residents. Wherever you are situated across either of the Westwood precincts, you are close to green open space and parkland. This, along with the abundant local amenity and the sense of community that has already emerged with residents, makes Westwood the preferred master-planned development for a wide demographic of residents.

Once a purchaser or family has made the decision to invest in Westwood for their future home, the next decision is which style of home is most suitable for their lifestyle and financial situation. There are an array of home options on offer when you purchase in a master-planned community: Full turnkey homes, townhomes, off-the-plan house and land packages, and custom-built homes.

But which is right for you?…

Turnkey Homes and Townhomes:

Turnkey homes and Townhomes are perfect for First Home Buyers and young families who are looking for a hassle-free homeownership process and a fixed price. The ease of the Turnkey homes and Townhomes also makes these options a favourite for downsizers. Townhomes in particular at Westwood are designed with quality built forms at affordable prices top of mind. With the price range generally under the $600K threshold, this also places first home buyers under the stamp duty exemption too.

Designed for both comfort and convenience, Turnkey homes and Townhomes make for an incredibly smooth move-in process with all the details of the homes, including flooring, blinds, landscaping, fencing, fixtures, and fittings, all pre-planned and included in a fixed price. Westwood partner with some of Australia’s most established builders to deliver architecturally designed and quality Townhomes. 

Off-the-plan House and Land:

The off-the-plan House & Land packages are a more substantial home, perhaps for a large or growing family. Those looking to upsize to suit their lifestyle have also expressed that the flexibility of the House and Land packages (purchasers are able to customise many aspects of their home) played a factor in their decision to go with this style of home. 

The off-the-plan House and Land packages have been designed to be site-specific to maximise the assets of lot sites throughout the estate. There is a diverse range of designs to choose from, and each comes with flexibility on upgrades and inclusions, as well as the opportunity to pick out a preferred builder to realise your home and bring it to life. 

Off-the-plan Custom Built Homes

Off-the-plan Custom Built Homes are for those who want to be more hands-on and may have specific requirements or tastes. To date, the variety of land lot sizes available in Westwood has made this most popular with those who have experience in the homeownership process and have a clear idea of what they are looking for in the design and build of their new home. 

Many purchasers of Custom Built Homes are purchasing in Westwood to realise their dream home. Some have specific design traits that they are prioritizing, such as sustainability or tailored functionality which can certainly be delivered through this option.  

Westwood is delivering a truly diverse community that will be home to all budgets and lifestyle requirements. The communities of both Westwood Walk and Westwood Place will include people of varied cultural backgrounds and economic status, and to date, the residents of Westwood have truly valued the wide range of home styles that are available.
