New home buyers in Queensland are taking their inspiration from the American East coast as Hamptons-style homes become increasingly popular in Stockland communities in the Sunshine State.

The perfect complement to the coastal lifestyle, Hamptons-style homes are being embraced by new home buyers keen to build a sophisticated and stylish dream home that offers a light, spacious interior with the classic elegance of the style’s signature gable roofs and white-tonal timber facades.


Kingsley Andrew, General Manager of Residential, Queensland at Stockland, said the developer was seeing a spike in interest for Hamptons-style homes in its Queensland residential communities.


“We’ve definitely seen an upwards trend in terms of the number of inquiries we’re getting from buyers about building a Hamptons-style home,” Mr Andrew said.


“The demand has been so strong that we’ve worked with our builder partners to feature Hamptons-style homes in the display villages of our Newport, Aura and Sovereign Pocket communities, so buyers can come along and see the quality and beauty of a Hamptons home up close.”


The popularity of the Hamptons-style home sees a return to the more traditional, postcard-pretty houses symbolic of beachside living in Queensland. 


“Buyers have seen the beauty of older Queenslander homes being renovated Hamptons-style in South East Queensland and want to achieve the same style of elegant home without the hassle of a renovation,” Mr Andrew said. 


“Not only that, but building a brand new home means buyers can design the home that’s right for them without having to work around existing features of an older home that may not suit their requirements.”


The trend is proving to be a popular style at The Elements, an exciting new village at the Sunshine Coast’s Aura community.


“These exquisite homes blend indoor and outdoor living seamlessly, making them a perfect fit for a tranquil setting like The Elements,” Mr Andrew said.


“In addition, we’re also seeing a lot of interest in the Aston Milan Hamptons display home at our waterside Newport community as buyers seek a light, airy home to suit their coastal lifestyle.”


The Stylemaster Aurora 38 four-bedroom, single storey home on display at Aura is priced from $315,260 (house only).


“I’d encourage any buyer interested in building a Hamptons home to come along to either our Newport, Aura or Sovereign Pocket display villages and take a stroll through one of these iconic display homes,” Mr Andrew said.
