We’re beyond the point of talking about the Adelaide Hills as one of the fastest growing regions in South Australia. It’s been discovered already by countless keep the rat race of the city for work purposes only. The suburban lifestyle in the Hills feels distinctly different when you breath in the fresh air, can watch the seasons change all around you and be barely a 30 minute commute from town.
Pleasingly, as the region grows is an increasing diversity of property options and even more wonderful is that first home buyers aren’t being priced out (by, you know, avocado for breakfast). The latest player in the market is Samata Homes who espouse a European-inspired approach to design, combined with a simple, fast build process that will appeal to those who want to avoid being dragged down by your standard development constraints. Best of all, they’re Mount Barker based and know how to capture the region like it’s their own back yard.
Backed by South Australian building company the Rendition Group, Samata Homes feature façades that accentuate the landscape and feel of the Adelaide Hills, as well as spacious interiors and a seamless flow between inside and outdoors in mind. Rendition Group Managing Director Wayne Fazzalari is keen to emphasise the features as being exactly what millennial buyers would want to see. “Like the home designs of Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Stockholm, we’ve made use of every square metre to create a floorplan with a distinct feeling of generosity as soon as you step inside. When you combine that open layout with higher ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows in the foyer and bedrooms and horizontal strip windows in the living area to unlock clear views of the sky, the sense of openness and calmness is distinct.”
When you think the Adelaide Hills, the fact that Samata Homes are designed to be a sanctuary away from the pressures of work, for entertaining, family and to create a lifestyle rather than dictate one, their appeal is obvious.
Designs have already been pre-approved by council for selected allotments in the Aston Hills Estate in Mount Barker and Virginia Grove at Virginia (another oasis from the sprawl that is being tapped into) – meaning building work can start almost as soon as the contract is signed and taking months off the building process.
Current Samata Homes available in Seymour Drive, Mount Barker, are priced from less than $315,000 and include DeLonghi appliances, floor coverings, paving, driveway and landscaping. When you factor in the current $15k First Home Owners grants as well as current stamp duty concessions, you’re set to get a $30k head start on a new build.
Samata Homes are featured in the Aston Hills Display Village, corner of Sims and Paech Road, Mount Barker. Displays are open from 1pm to 5pm on weekends, Mondays and Wednesdays. Or, you could always jump online and visit their website, Facebook or Instagram.
