Discover the Beautifully Irregular Lots at Riverhills
25 May 2022
For a community like Riverhills, it is the natural features of the land that make it truly unique. The undulating banks of Darebin Creek and the soft rising hills leading to Quarry Hills Bushland Park offer unparalleled vistas, the likes of which cannot be found anywhere else in Wollert. It is this distinctive topography that makes Riverhills uniquely desirable and influences the shape of some lots within our community.
Embracing an irregular shaped lot
With these factors at play, when land is subdivided into individual lots at Riverhills, some may be quite uniform while others are slightly irregular. Buyers will find most new housing developments consist of some irregular-shaped blocks, as developers work within the existing landscape of the area.
Mostly, homebuyers gravitate towards straightforward rectangular or square lots, rather than irregularly shaped land. This might be because the building process seems more approachable this way. However, find a builder who will put a little thought into your home design, and an irregular block can provide many, many fabulous benefits.
The benefits of an irregular lot
If you connect with the right builder, there are many benefits to working with an irregular block that largely outweighs any of the challenges.
For a start, irregular blocks are often larger and cheaper, meaning better value. And, when we consider Riverhills in particular, lots 305, 468 and 470 are situated in one of the best spots in the whole community! All three are perfectly positioned within walking distance of Darebin Creek Reserve, parkland, cycling and walking trails, as well as the proposed future convenience centre!
Irregular lots can also offer bigger yards and gardens – all three currently available at Riverhills are over 400sqm – so features like swimming pools and alfresco areas are easily accommodated. This makes them a great choice for families who seek a little extra space.
You can also generally position the house in a way that maximises the available natural light. This is especially true for lots 305, 468 and 470, as each sits on a corner lot. Meaning your future home won’t be boxed in and shadowed by neighbours on all sides!
And lastly, resale value improves when your home stands out because it offers something that other homes don’t.
In fact, unless your heart is set on a home design that simply won’t work on anything other than a symmetrical lot, it’s hard to think of a reason why you wouldn’t opt for the unconventional route! The key is to work with a builder that has experience delivering beautiful and functional homes, designed to maximise the potential of the land, regardless of the shape.
