In a night filled with anticipation and excitement, Clarendon Homes has emerged victorious from the highly competitive HIA-CSR Hunter Awards 2023, with its Bowral 44 display home winning the 2023 Hunter Region Display Home of the Year.
Situated at the Lochinvar Display Centre in the picturesque Hunter Region, the Bowral 44’s meticulous design has redefined excellence in the acreage market, setting new standards for architectural brilliance and functionality. Learn more about this award-winning property.
Featuring a unique and intelligently designed floorplan, the Bowral 44 is the ultimate rural retreat and perfect option for large families. Built specifically with the acreage experience in mind, the Bowral 44 also offers 18 pre-set floorplan options to extend or reposition rooms or areas of the home to suit different lifestyle choices.
Hunter Regional Sales Manager, Kate Carson is particularly proud of the Bowral 44’s family-friendly design, with its open plan kitchen, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a children’s retreat.
“With a large front balcony, as well as a spacious alfresco area designed to take in the surrounding landscape, the Bowral 44 elevates country living to new heights. It’s a genuine step up from the classic homestead and truly includes everything a growing family would need.”
Kate described the home design as a true showstopper:
“As soon as you walk in, you think, ‘wow, this is impressive'. With its private main bedroom area and multiple living spaces with 3m high ceilings, it feels luxurious and spacious. It’s got a beautiful feel to it.”
A defining feature of the Bowral 44 is its generous use of thoughtfully positioned, expansive windows. These not only bathe the interiors in an abundance of natural light but also frame awe-inspiring views of the sprawling landscape. This design choice not only elevates the home’s aesthetic appeal, but also creates a strong bond between residents and the natural beauty of their acreage property.
The display home also showcases the latest sustainable technologies, such as rainwater harvesting systems and energy-efficient appliances – allowing homeowners to enjoy the very best in self-sufficient and eco-conscious living.
Nestled in the heart of the acreage market, the Bowral 44 is a testament to the advantages of tailored residence design. Kate described the Bowral 44 as a home you’d want to stay in forever.
“With seven sizes and options to personalise the floorplan, our customers design and build the Bowral as their forever home. Whether you are after a smaller style home for a new estate or corner block, or a large family home to meet the needs of a growing extended family, you are able to build your dream home that’s perfectly tailored to fit the space you always wanted,” she said.
Whether you're hosting gatherings, nurturing a green thumb, or simply seeking solace in the tranquillity of acreage living, the Bowral 44 caters to every need.
The HIA Hunter Awards showcase the best in home design across the greater Newcastle and Hunter Valley region. The judging panel praised the Bowral 44's modern, farmhouse-style home for its quality finishes and thoughtful touches such as a feature stone fireplace and a pitched roof.
This win represents Clarendon’s ongoing commitment to providing beautifully designed homes for families in this region and beyond.
Following the Bowral 44’s success in this year’s HIA Hunter Awards, it is now a finalist for the 2024 HIA Australian Display Home.
It also comes as no surprise that its big brother, The Bowral 52 in Braemar, earned its well-deserved place as a finalist in the Display Home category at the HIA NSW Awards for the Sydney Region this year, underscoring its exceptional standards of design and innovation.
