Every family is different in its own way. Deciding on not only the current and short term needs of your family, but also the long term requirements you will have from your household is an important step of building a project home. A recent Multi-Generational Study by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute shows that one in five Australian households have adults from two or more generations living under one roof. The report shows that multi-generation living arrangements are highly-concentrated in and around suburban areas.

When planning your new home, it’s important to try and plan for your family’s future. For example, trends show that children are staying at home longer, so planning separate living areas and kid’s bedrooms that may become bedrooms for young adults at a later stage are part of the design and planning process. As parent’s age and retire, perhaps they will stay for extended periods or even become dependent.

Beechwood Homes understand that not all families operate under a traditional model and design and plan houses with this in mind. The award winning Asquith 36 single storey home is a great example of a floor plan designed for multi-generational living.  The Asquith 36 features a separate guest wing, complete with ensuite and robe as well as three separate living areas that can be used as a study, theatre room or traditional lounge room. The Asquith 36 home design recently won ‘Best exhibition/project home from $250,000-$300,000’ at the 2015 Master Builders Association of NSW Excellence in Housing Awards.

The Asquith 36 is a single storey home and part of Beechwood’s popular Evolution series. You can view the Asquith 36 at Housing World, Shell Cove on the South Coast and also Hunter HomeWorld at Chisolm, Berry Park on the North Coast.

Beechwood Homes have a wide range of project building options to account for nearly every type of family model, meaning whatever your situation - everyone can be comfortably accounted for.

The kitchen is often regarded as the most characterising room in a family home – especially a newly built Beechwood project home.

However, it can be a big task to decide what to include and not include, from the cupboard and cabinetry to the appliances and bench space – even the handles on the drawers can be a challenge.

It’s always handy to know what is on trend and fashionable in the world of Australian project kitchens, so you can best navigate and understand what qualities you would like in your kitchen.

A great place to start looking for inspiration are online sites such as Houzz or Pinterest, you can search very specific terms or see general trends and save them, or Pin them, for later inspiration.

It’s also helpful to research the current trends in kitchen design.

Below are some popular trends in kitchen design that look like they will remain well into 2016

  • Open Shelving – taking a user friendly approach to kitchen storage, open shelving helps to create an airy feel whilst giving a ‘lived in’ feel that is very popular now and looks great.
  • Modern-Traditional – the marriage of modern and traditional elements can create a warm and homey feel. Traditional door profiles like Shaker doors and mixing materials like stainless steel and wood are expected to take off.
  • Textured & tactile – surfaces that are textured and have an earthy look and feel are becoming more and more common. Untreated, matte woods and stone can be a great and subtle wow factor in a family kitchen.

This list is a great place to start thinking about the characteristics you would like in your new kitchen.

So many people that are new to the property game – and let’s face it, we all were once – seem to come up against the same the question. “What is the difference between a solicitor and a conveyancer? Both can handle standard conveyancing, so which should I be using?” The answers are really quite simple but it is important to understand one key difference.

The key difference between a conveyancer and a solicitor is that a conveyancer focuses solely on the process of transferring property ownership between parties, and a solicitor is able to perform other services in addition to conveyancing as needed.

In order to understand this further, it is important to explore the term ‘real property’. Real property is simply immovable property, primarily land and buildings. Real property is the term applied to all land, buildings and their fixtures in relation to ownership. The reason it is important to understand this term is because a key definition between these two legal professions is that a conveyancer is restricted to dealing with real property while a solicitor is able to deal with more intangible matters, such as wills and bonds, as well as conveyancing.

Most property transactions will only require the services of a conveyancer as opposed to a solicitor. By focusing solely on property transfers and sales, licensed conveyancers are able to offer a more cost-effective and specialised service. While full-service solicitors will charge by the hour, a conveyancer will more often than not charge a flat fee for a standard matter and their specific knowledge can expedite the process significantly.

However, a knowledgeable solicitor will be crucial if your property transaction is more complicated or requires attendance at a court. It would be wise to consult with a conveyancer initially to determine whether it is necessary to use a solicitor in order to avoid additional costs.

So, if you’re looking at whether you will need a solicitor or a conveyancer to handle your property transaction, it is important to take your own personal circumstances into consideration. More often than not, a licensed conveyancer will be able to handle your matter or in the least direct you to a solicitor who can.

Beechwood now has display homes for you to visit across three separate Sydney locations – Oran Park, Kellyville and Gledswood Hills with twelve different display homes to explore.


Visiting a Beechwood Sydney display home is a great way to explore the different features available and see how a Beechwood home would suit your family needs – while also giving the kids a chance to argue over which bedroom they each want.


To make the most of your visit to a Sydney display home, plan your visit in advance to make sure you are seeing the display homes that most suit you – single storey or double storey? How many bedrooms and bathrooms are ideal for your new home? What are some of the non negotiable features you want in your new home?


When you are in the display home, take your time to look around, envisage how your family would make use of the space. Stand in the kitchen – can you see the kids playing in the backyard? Do you need to? Is there a quiet study space for your home office or for your teenager to study? What is the proximity of the bedrooms – do you want to be right next door to the rest of the family or enjoy and bit of a parents retreat?


Ask the sales person for a brochure on each home so you can take notes – seeing just three to four display homes during a visit can start to blur what you liked and didn’t like about each of the home designs. And that includes did it “feel” right for you, not just if it’s right on paper, ...and yes…we’re more than happy to make changes to suit your needs!!!

It is an undisputed fact that Beechwood Homes have been through some tumultuous times. This July 29 marked the 7 year anniversary of the current management taking over Beechwood. It is not our nature to dwell to past happenings, this is the opportunity to acknowledge that it has taken a lot of hard work and some patience, but we have re-emerged as a stronger, driven and more reliable building company across Sydney and NSW.

It is true that when we took control of Beechwood Homes back in 2008, we inherited a long list of issues to work through. It has been our solid commitment to our clients that has seen us honour existing contracts and strongly push ahead with new and exciting ventures.

In the 7 years since taking on Beechwood Homes, we have built over 3,500 affordable family homes. We have built 3,500 homes that families will relax in, enjoy their time together in, and will build their lives in.

Beechwood Homes have been instrumental in the development of not only metropolitan estates but also regional building centres in NSW. We have now expanded our building locations to areas such as the South Coast, the Central West, and as far North as Port Macquarie just to mention a few.

By making our family homes and services available to people in these regional areas, we are creating an opportunity for affordable housing and lifestyles for those who may not otherwise be able to get into the market. We are opening up Australia.
