Innovative designs prove spacious homes are within reach at the new Vale Display Village
The latest in home designs at Stockland’s brand new Vale Display Village are proving that livability doesn’t have to be sacrificed for affordability as home buyers on a budget look for more bang for buck. 

Of the seven homes on display, all have luxuries most first homes don’t include, like butler’s pantries, multiple living spaces and substantial outdoor areas. 
The new display village at Vale at Holmview was officially opened on 28 January and showcases the latest in modern home designs by a range of Queensland’s top builders, including Metricon, Ausmar Homes, Bask Homes, Integra Homes, Watersun Homes, Colossal Homes and DeKor Homes. 

Jason Krueger, director At DeKor Homes, said the demand for new homes by first home owners was strong, however people were trying to fit a lot into their blocks due to limited budgets. 

“We’ve noticed people buying blocks suited to their budget, then trying to fit too much into the space inefficiently,” he said.
“This prompted us to produce something people can relate to – a versatile home with a well-laid-out design that can fit a lot of features and remain homey.” 

The DeKor Homes display at the Vale Display Village has an open-living floorplan, which showcases the indoor-outdoor aspect that is proving a trend among Queensland home owners. 

Peter Andersen, director at Bask Homes, said home buyers were no longer settling for basic homes and instead were now focusing on liveable aspects, like larger master suites and separate living areas, without compromising on privacy or finances.

“It all comes down to good architectural design,” Mr Andersen said. 
“People are genuinely surprised when they come and see what can be built with a design that is specifically for that block and that there really isn’t a compromise on anything.”  

“Modern and minimalistic design features help here too, meaning homes are now spacious and functional, and also very flexible throughout the various stages of people’s lives.

The Bask Homes display continues the open-plan trend, with a living space strongly connected to the outdoors by large and extending windows which utilise light and ventilation, achieving the luxury of space and efficiency. 

David Laner, Regional Manager at Stockland, said home designs were constantly evolving to suit modern lifestyles and it was exciting to see the latest trends on show at the new Vale Display Village. 

“Vale at Holmview caters for a wide range of budgets and lifestyles and the homes on show in our new display village demonstrate what can be achieved with the experience and guidance of our professional builder partners,” Mr Laner said. 
“The homes are very spacious and extremely liveable and it all comes down to good design and a knowledge of what home owners value most.”
