Buying and building on a smaller block, like those available in the Urban Edition, is an easy and stress-free process. As a release, the Urban Edition has been designed to provide a straightforward and simple pathway to a finished home surrounded by all the things that make a place liveable. The local café, your favourite restaurants, the gym, supermarket and medical centre are all considered essential to modern living. A home that is close to all the things you need to enjoy a healthy, social lifestyle.
As is the case with houses all over the world, living close to the urban centre often means smaller land size or higher density living arrangements such as apartments.
Block sizes in the Urban Edition range start from 240m2, ensuring that there is a place for everyone regardless of budget. So, you’re going for a smaller block? Great, but remember that doesn’t mean the construction of your home won’t be a big undertaking.
That’s why we have partnered with some of Sydney’s leading builders to simplify the building process on some of our smaller lots. That said, there are still some things that you will need to keep in mind, especially in the design and selection process. For example, if you need additional bedrooms for a growing family then you may need to consider less outdoor space. In the Urban Edition, proximity to La Valla and the Gregory Hills Dog Park means outdoor space is plentiful.
The first step in the journey towards building and buying any home is research.
Understanding what you can and can’t build on a block is key. Gregory Hills partnered early on with builders to curate a range of their homes that are suitable for the Urban Edition.
A great place to start is the Urban Edition House & Land Packages page. The homes featured by our partner builders are all designed to fit on to block sizes with the Urban Edition homesite meterage range.
If you wish to purchase a block and freely decide which house you’d like to build there, the House & Land Packages page is still a good starting point, as it will help to give you an understanding of the possibilities you have for the block.
This is also a good time to write a list of the things you need in your home and things that you don’t. For some, the idea of a media room is great, for others, that media room could have been a great bedroom for the kids.
A great place to start is to get down the necessities – bedrooms, bathrooms, car spots and kitchen. From there you can filter through the many home designs available, deciding on any inclusions or upgrades you may want.
