In one of the fastest-growing districts of north west Sydney stands three completed turnkey homes, designed and built by Worthington Homes in partnership with a renowned developer.
“Make it marketable, sellable and profitable.”
That was the brief handed to Worthington Homes at initial stages of the Paramount Box Hill project, consisting of three brand new homes in Box Hill.
Prior to tender proposals, council approvals and even floor plan design, Liam and his team at Worthington Homes worked closely in consultation with a Sydney property developer to deliver a series of turnkey homes in the boutique estate of Paramount Box Hill.
With residential development exploding in the region and a healthy pipeline of greenfield estates emerging throughout greater Sydney, demand by developers for turnkey construction is also taking its own trajectory.
Managing Director Liam Worthington states, “While plenty of mums and dads are flocking to buy up parcels of land, there’s also an upward trend for turnkey homes by property developers as new estates pop up in Sydney.”
“We have a bustling population in metro areas, particularly across north west and south west Sydney – and even into north and south coast regions post-COVID. At Worthington Homes, it means we can deliver a full turnkey package for developers and even owner-occupiers with a building process that’s virtually seamless.”
The residences in Box Hill are no exception. In May 2022, Worthington Homes successfully delivered three distinct double storey homes, all built and constructed concurrently through turbulent times over the COVID-19 crisis and wettest summer on record.
Each with a contemporary 4-bedroom floor plan and a ‘Lifestyle’ inclusions package, no stone was left unturned when it came to site preparation, design, construction and colour selections.
An impressive floor plan in a contemporary design
Largely suited to dense suburban blocks with a narrow width, the Franklin design is one of Worthington’s most popular floor plans for land erring on the compact side.
Finding a design that ticks all the boxes can be a challenge for families wanting a contemporary home that takes them through different life stages. With its contemporary design and timeless layout, the Franklin range doesn’t compromise on space, inclusions and features.
Made up of 4 bedrooms plus a study, which can be converted into a 5th bedroom with an ensuite, the Franklin offers a generous 250-267m² floor plan perfect for young families, multi-generational families and empty nesters with grandkids.
No doubt, the kitchen is the centrepiece of the home, overlooking an open plan dining and living area, seamlessly connected to the alfresco that transitions into an idyllic outdoor courtyard.
A separate media room and oversized master bedroom with allowance for a study nook means everyone can enjoy working, streaming, gaming or even relaxing in their own dedicated space.
Built by Worthington Homes and currently listed on realestate.com.au, all three properties are proving popular among eager buyers wanting to move in without delay.
All facets of the project managed by Liam and his team
Liam says, “We offer a comprehensive end-to-end service for all developer clients, regardless of the number of dwellings. By keeping lines of communication open and our pricing transparent, we’re able to stay on-track to deliver the best possible outcome.”
Recent projects undertaken by Worthington Homes include eight duplex homes in Schofields and 18 freestanding Torrens Title townhomes in Kellyville – both nominated in 2020 and 2021 consecutively for the NSW Master Builders Association Excellence in Housing Awards.
“Our turnkey homes delivered were sold immediately with some even sold off-the-plan prior to build completion,” Liam adds. “This is a key priority for us in designing the house, is to ensure its marketability for a profitable sale.”
In these projects, completed houses included driveway, landscaping, blinds, flyscreens and service connections, as well as interior and exterior finishes, making each home attractive for potential buyers.
One area Worthington are adept in navigating is the bureaucratic DA/CDC process with local council.
Operations Manager, Darren says, “With multi-dwelling projects comes another level complexity around what you can and can’t do. As a turnkey builder for developer clients, this is where consulting and negotiating becomes a key step in the process.”
“By applying our extensive knowledge of council requirements and red tape associated with getting projects approved, we’re confident we can minimise delays, so projects go to site efficiently.”
State and council-led work together to increase housing
While the NSW government leads the planning of city, infrastructure and investment, much of the responsibility for medium-density approvals sits with local council.
The NSW Department of Planning and Environment are transitioning to a new approach to further progress the expansion of much-needed infrastructure, offering councils even more jurisdiction to plan and approve projects within their communities.
Wilton, Leppington, Schofields, Riverstone and Marsden Park are included in those council-led rezoning plans, with Blacktown, The Hills, Camden and Campbelltown councils receiving an injection of funds from the NSW Government to speed up delivery.
The NSW Government is ramping up its investment in vital infrastructure to support the delivery of more than 30,000 new homes in areas of Western Sydney that are experiencing record growth. With data indicating that people want to live in these areas, the state government are supporting council via an Accelerated Infrastructure Fund.
The Accelerated Infrastructure Fund (AIF) was announced in 2020 to cut red tape and fast-track planning processes, essentially keeping people in jobs and allowing continuity in the construction industry throughout COVID-19.
Liam states, “More housing in established areas as well as new housing in greenfield areas such as Wilton Greens is welcome news for developers seeking to build in high-growth LGAs.”
“Though construction for the future is a contentious issue right now, plans by state and local council to accelerate housing sounds very promising for residential construction.”
