The wait is nearly over for Drury’s latest settlement, Hunua Views
The wait is nearly over for those keen to move into Drury’s latest settlement, Hunua Views.
One of New Zealand’s largest building companies, Classic Builders, will be releasing the first of its stage one house and land packages early next month and these coveted properties are expected to go quick.
With thirty percent of the 800 home development set to fall under $650,000, Classic Builders is excited to be playing a part in making living on Auckland’s doorstep so affordable, says Classic Group director Peter Cooney.
“Hunua Views has been designed to deliver quality, affordability homes, which is extremely difficult to achieve in the Auckland region and we have worked hard, without compromising on the quality part, to give Kiwis what they need and want” he says.
“We are very excited to bring Hunua Views to the market and watch a new community grow.”
Classic Builders’ first release will become available early November and those registered will receive first-hand information and alerts on this (and future) property releases. Registrations can be made at www.hunuaviews.co.nz.
The Hunua Views residential development is being led by Classic Developments, with Classic Builders - its residential building business, being one of the building partners. The 50-hectare development will accommodate up to 800 new residences and is located just to the east of Auckland’s southern motorway. Auckland city centre is less than 40 kilometres away, with Hamilton 60 kilometres south.
Earthworks are well underway, paving the way for a new community being described as “a calm escape from city congestion”. Construction of the first homes is planned to start early 2020.
Peter Cooney says the houses have been architecturally designed and vary in size between 120 to 180 square metres, with the majority being stand-alone and the rest terraced.
“The house and land packages we are releasing will offer the perfect living solution to many Kiwis. There will be plenty of space for those that need it while those downsizing can embrace a new level of freedom with smaller, “lock and leave” options. And the more you learn about the area, the more you appreciate what the location has to offer.”
He says residents will be able to enjoy the rewards of the subdivision’s well considered urban design, with many of the sites positioned to make the most of views of the reserve area alongside. Natural wetlands, streams and walkways, and expansive green spaces are part of the surrounding landscape. That, coupled with predominantly flat level terrain, will offer unlimited recreational opportunities for families.
In the backyard, only 20 minutes away, are the Hunua Ranges themselves – NZ’s largest area of native forest, with this natural playground including wildlife, waterfalls and walking tracks. East and west coast beaches, as well as Auckland airport, are an easy commute. For those not needing big cities, the service town of Pukekohe is less than 20 minutes away.
Hunua Views will provide close-at-hand living opportunities for those employed at the Drury South Crossing business park – a massive project being undertaken by The Stevenson Group.
Stevensons and Auckland Council have worked collaboratively to ensure there is sufficient housing within and around Drury South Crossing to provide homes for an estimated 5,000 workers who will be employed there. A large proportion are expected to live in the surrounding area.
Three new housing areas, including Hunua Views, adjoin the business park and Auckland Council structure plans for Drury, Pukekohe and Paerata could see more than 23,000 new houses built in these areas over the next 15 years.
The Drury South Crossing concept design incorporates a wide range of industrial, commercial and residential property, as well as about 90 hectares of open spaces for the public to enjoy, including recreation areas, walking and cycling tracks.
