Q&A with Vicki

Property industry veteran and Bluestone Sales Consultant Vicki McRae has never been more excited about a premium land offering than the lots now on offer in Parkindula at Bluestone. She shared some of her thoughts on the great choices available for homebuyers.

Q: Why Parkindula at Bluestone?
The historic homestead will be the base for all sorts of great events and activities in the developing local community. It is also at the heart of wonderful new facilities such as tennis courts, playgrounds, barbecues and picnic areas, and is already quite close to existing amenities such as grocery shopping, hospital, doctors, chemist, and a service station.

Parkindula is unique and will just be a lovely area for anybody to live.

Q: Why choose to buy in Parkindula Village?
It really is a ‘no brainer’ for me. Parkindula is a convenient and connected location. And there’s more to come.

We already have lots of landscaped areas, playgrounds and walking trails, and will have a linear reserve that follows a beautiful tree studded creek line. At the end of this is a strawberry farm – you can’t get them much fresher than that! Further facilities and amenities, convenient future shopping, and a child care centre are also currently in the planning phase.

We have such a variety of lots for sale, from flat smaller lots to magnificent large lots on top of the hill with outstanding views. We have our popular Terrace collection homes. So, overall, we can cater for everyone from first homebuyers, to retirees, to families.

It will be the best place to be, for all the right reasons.

Q: What’s the first thing you’d tell someone looking to build their dream home?

Find the location you want and set your budget, and the rest will fall into place.

There’s a myriad of house designs to choose from which you can tailor to meet your lifestyle needs but location comes first. For example, is your lot close to amenities – such as being within walking distance of the great parks and green spaces at Bluestone? What aspect do you want for your block? At Parkindula, we have large flat lots, which means less costs for retaining or footings. But then there are also premium elevated hills lots which offer great outlooks.

Q: What advice would you give to people wanting to build their dream home – in choosing their builder?
The key ingredients are quality and cost. Check out display villages, talk to consultants about their processes. It should be fully explained in a manner you are comfortable with. Ask about their selection process and time frames – how easy will it be moving through the design stage with them, and then through all the selections of materials and finishes? Most of all enjoy the process, it should be exciting

Q: What are the five things to remember when building?
1. Firstly budget – talk to the money people – we can assist with that.
2. Determine what you really want – what is important to you? Size of land, home etc.
3. Pick your perfect location. We can certainly assist with that.
4. Find the right builder for you.
5. Think about how you want to live and how you can see yourself living in your new dream home. What extras do you want? Stone benchtops, floor to ceiling tiles in bathrooms? The choice is yours.

Q: What’s on trend in premium housing at the moment?

Kitchens and bathrooms are always the areas where people tend to invest the most time and money in planning and making selections. Spaciousness in bathrooms is very important to people building quality homes at present.

Facades are very important too. An impressive street presence adds value not only for you but also lifts the standards of the street and your local community.
