Living on the Sunshine Coast is a dream many make the sea change to help come to life. So if you’ve found the most beautiful suburb to call home and you own land in a cul-de-sac, you’ll be pleased to know that building a new home is easier than you can imagine.
Dixon Homes designs exclusive houses perfectly suited to cul-de-sacs. The design team knows all too well the benefits residents enjoy from these quaint hidden-away streets and have tailored a selection of floor plans and homes most suited to building on the Sunshine Coast’s quiet streets. Let’s take a look at the designs on offer and get you started building a dream home.
Benefits of living in a cul-de-sac
A cul-de-sac, also known as a court or a dead-end street, is often highly sought after by families and those seeking more out of their neighbourhood than friendly neighbours and a lack of traffic. Real estate values of houses built in cul-de-sacs are generally higher than those built on regular streets and these streets offer a range of advantages over normal streets, including a reduction in noise and pollution, since there is much less traffic. They are often considered much safer for children, who are able to play in the street especially if there are only four or five houses in the dead end.
There’s no denying cul-de-sacs are lovely areas to live, so if you are looking to build a new home what designs are on offer?
Three-bedroom spacious family homes
A standard three-bedroom home is a common starting point for families looking to build. Depending on the size and dimensions of your land, there are plenty of floor plan ideas to consider.
The NC5318 is perfect for a lot that is long and narrow. Covering 160 square metres and priced from $160 000, this exclusive Dixon Homes design offers you a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home complete with a double lock up garage.
If your land is squarer and you’re looking for an L-shaped design to allow you to take advantage of your backyard, take a closer look at the SL9406 or SL9409. Both designs require a lot width of 18.2 metres and 18.4 metres respectively, and priced at just over $160 000 you’ll enjoy three spacious rooms, two bathrooms and a lock up garage for two cars. In fact, the floor plans are almost identical except for the positioning of the kitchen, so it comes down to personal preference.
The ultimate entertainer
When you live in a close-knit cul-de-sac, chances are you’ll know your neighbours well. Your kids will go to the same local schools, you’ll keep an eye on each other’s homes when families go away and when summer comes, there will be plenty of barbeques and entertaining underway. If you’re all for entertaining it might be an essential requirement that your new home has a stunning alfresco patio perfect for casual gatherings.
Dixon Homes understands your needs and offers residents building on the Sunshine Coast hundreds of exclusive new home designs that are not only suitable for a cul-de-sac, but also come complete with an outdoor entertaining area.
The SC7603 is the ultimate entertainer. Priced at just over $142 000, this 135-square-metre home comes with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a double lock up garage. Not only is the open-plan living and dining area overlooked by the kitchen, but it also opens out onto an undercover alfresco patio. Suitable for a lot width of 12.49 metres, this becomes the perfect way to spill out into the garden on a balmy Sunshine Coast evening.
Of course that’s just the start of what Dixon Homes has on offer. Are you looking to build a larger home, possibly five rooms? The SC5635 is stunning and for just over $182 800 you can enjoy 225 square metres of luxury. This design is almost an L-shaped home where the family, dining and kitchen zones encompass the large outdoor alfresco area. Not only is this design so inviting, but with a separate living space, it becomes a great-sized family home to cater for all ages. You may not need five bedrooms so consider turning a spare room into a study, a library or a music room. The options are almost limitless so don’t discount the extra space just yet.
Double-storey homes for a cul-de-sac
Depending on the other homes in the cul-de-sac and your local council restrictions, you may be able to build a double-storey home. These days, designs cleverly allow rather narrow or small blocks of land to accommodate spacious living. Dixon Homes has come up with dozens of designs, two of which may just suit your land.
The FL0928 and FL0927 are perfect for land that is only 10 metres wide. Ranging from $217 500 to $243 754, these floor plans are very similar, but each offers some unique features. Both homes boast a double garage downstairs, plus living and dining zones, a kitchen, powder room and laundry, and both allow families to enjoy an alfresco outdoor area. The FL0928 offers an additional study nook downstairs too.
Upstairs there are four spacious bedrooms, a family space or children’s retreat and two bathrooms. When you live on the Sunshine Coast and are surrounded by some of the country’s most beautiful natural scenery and beaches, you’ll love waking up to the ocean breeze coming in through your bedroom window.
In fact, it does not matter what your budget, your land size or your unique tastes. Living in a cul-de-sac brings with it fabulous opportunities and Dixon Homes capitalises on that by offering a large range of new home designs perfectly suited to your street. And if you fall in love with the look of a home but are keen on making some alterations to the floor plan or the layout of the kitchen or bathrooms, all you need to do is chat to a Dixon Homes designer and make those changes come to life.
