Come and visit Newenham and walk through the stunning display homes in stage 1 of our Display Village. Showcasing display homes by three top South Australian builders, the display village signifies the start of a different offering to our prospective Newenham residents and a unique point of difference to other villages in South Australia. These distinctive display homes will inspire you to think outside of the box when designing and building a new home and will provide design diversity within our growing community.
Welcoming Shire Homes, Aspire Homes and TEK Building & Design into the Newenham family is something we’re extremely proud of, presenting another way for us to support local business and showcase the talents of the incredible building industry we have in South Australia. Each builder has developed their very own custom design display home for the Newenham village, reflecting their individual design ethos, while keeping in line with the Newenham style. You will be unable to find these homes on display anywhere else in South Australia.
“We are so excited to be able to open the first three Display Homes in our Display Village this weekend,” Olivia Burke says, Marketing and Sales Director for Newenham. “The homes showcase how prospective residents and the broader community can work with local South Australian builders to achieve an exemplary designed home without breaking the bank.”
Each home is a shining example of country design meets modern innovation, with each presenting their own take on the contemporary ‘Hills’ character we have set out at to deliver at Newenham. These display homes have been uniquely designed to suit the lay of the land including the individual allotment orientation, larger block sizes and the beautiful country surrounds of Newenham.
“From the outset, we wanted to create a development with an authentic sense of place, which for us meant taking inspiration from the character of the Adelaide Hills to create a timeless, contemporary and Australian design that’s unique to Newenham,” Olivia says. “These three builders understood the vision and the brief straight away, delivering display homes that are truly special and which make us feel incredibly proud.”
The best part? Each of these builders specialises in custom-designed and built homes, which means you can rest assured that you’ll be guided through the process with personal precision and professional expertise. Just as we prefer personalised, friendly service, so do our new custom builder partners. Here’s a sneaky peak at what they have to offer…
Shire Homes’ two-storey home (‘The Shire’) presents country-style wood cladding and a traditional wrap-around verandah, combined with modern architectural features like high ceilings, spacious open-plan living and a lift, to extend the life and value of the home, and optimise modern design.
Aspire Homes have designed a beautiful single-storey home (the ‘Southampton’), combining recycled bricks and wood cladding, to mix-and-match new and old in the exterior look and feel. Inside, the brick and wood features are continued, while the spacious white interior allows for a more modern design and style to suit today’s lifestyle.
TEK Building & Design ‘Sapphire’ design is much more modern in look and feel, while still utilising colours and materials to suit the Hills locale. The exterior of the home showcases beautiful wood and stone features, tying in nicely with the rugged Hills landscape. The timber theme continues throughout the interior, and incorporates large windows for optimal natural light and a lot of white space for a more modern design style.
“We set out to make Newenham a timeless place that we would feel proud to live in ourselves, and with these new designs, we feel confident we’ve done that. These display homes reflect the same level of care, quality and style that are being reflected throughout all elements of our masterplan,” Olivia says. “We want to move in!”
Each home has been fitted out with the latest designer furnishings and features, with expert interior design complete for all three. While TEK Homes have styled their home themselves, with muted tones and modern flair, both Shire and Aspire have been styled by Adelaide stylist and entrepreneur Annabelle Kerslake of Fete Magazine.
Grey and white tones with hints of natural wood and fresh greenery offer simple and timeless charm and reflect current styling trends, and are in-line with the understated country elegance we love and encourage here at Newenham. The uncomplicated, sophisticated design also lends itself to be altered to suit the individual personality of each home owner.
“The thing I love most about the exterior designs and the interior styles of these homes is that they won’t date,” Olivia says. “In my opinion, good design should be timeless, and this is something we’re passionate about at Newenham. We want people to drive through Newenham in 50 years and still feel that it’s a seamless part of the environment and residential area of Mount Barker.”.
Whether you are looking at building a house now or in the future or are simply looking for design and styling inspiration we urge anyone and everyone to drive up to Newenham to take a look at these homes for themselves.
If you’re interested in viewing our brand new display homes, they’re open for inspection every Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 1pm to 5pm, or by appointment through the individual builders.
