Building a home is a very personal, exciting and rewarding experience. Along the way you may have uncertainties and questions – at Watagan Park we live for a peaceful and worry-free lifestyle, which is why we’re here to help you every step of the way.
Choosing Your Builder
When building at Watagan Park you can choose whichever builder is right for you and your family, as there are no builder restrictions. The trend for most residents to date has been project or contract builders due to the simplicity and affordability that they provide. To assist with this we are building a display village at Watagan Park to make choosing your new dream home even easier. A number of residents with building skills have chosen the owner/builder path and it has been exciting seeing new designs pop-up and the use of technology to provide high green star ratings.
Style of Home
One of the many advantages of building your dream home is that you are there from the beginning. You can modify designs to suit your family’s needs, whether that’s an extra room, larger dining areas, outdoor spaces, an extra storey or swimming pool. At Watagan Park we have implemented design guidelines, in accordance with Lake Macquarie’s Development Control Plan (DCP). There are a number of standard requirements within the DCP that your builder will assist you with when you submit your Development Application (DA) for your home to council. The key elements to note in accordance with the DCP are;
- 4 metres to front building line
- 6 metres to garage
- 50% of site coverage
- Side setback of 900mm
Here is a link to part 3 of the DCP, but don’t be too worried as your builder will assist you and we are always here if you have any questions.
We understand that building your new dream home isn’t something that you do every day and everyone has different circumstances. That’s why we have no restrictions when it comes to the timeframe in which you need to start building your home at Watagan Park. You can start building the day of settlement or you can wait as long as needed.
House & Land Packages
Deciding what style of home to build on your block of land and determining what the final price will be can be a little daunting. To make things easier we have created a number of House & Land packages from a wide selection of builders. These will change depending on the land release and we are always here to answer any questions you might have in order to help you achieve the perfect outcome for you and your family.
