Location and lifestyle attracted this young family

Future Kinma Valley residents, Naomi and Craig Westerman, are excited to build their family home in the leafy and conveniently located neighbourhood with room to grow.

For Naomi and Craig Westerman, convenience, space to grow and a place to create memories as a family were at the top of the list when choosing their future neighbourhood.

Passionate Moreton Bay locals and future Kinma Valley residents, Naomi and Craig spoke to us about their home buying journey and what they’re most looking forward to.

Loving the Moreton Bay lifestyle

Moreton Bay locals, parents and business owners Naomi and Craig, are looking forward to building their own home at Kinma Valley where they have recently secured a spacious block in the heart of the first precinct, Hazelwood. 

Currently renting in Newport, the couple wanted to buy land and build their own home, and knew they wanted to stay in the area.

“We were looking to buy, and knew we wanted to stay in the Moreton Bay region. We have lived here for 3 years now and love it,” Naomi said. “Staying here means we have access to our work and can enjoy the lifestyle we love. We’re also a part of a local boxing club here.”

“We like that it’s only 45 minutes to the city and 45 minutes to the Sunshine Coast, so we can go in any direction and have the best of both worlds,” Craig said. “We have friends at the Coast so we’re looking forward to visiting them more and entertaining more regularly at home.”

The couple came across land for sale at Kinma Valley and took a drive to look at the site’s location before making an enquiry with the Sales team to find out more.

“We made an appointment with the sales team and met them on-site, it was a great experience.” Naomi said.

An ideal location with education and amenities nearby

Naomi, the founder of a baby massage business, and Craig, who owns his own business in the oil and gas industry, are also proud parents to their 18-month-old son, Theo. Thinking about their family’s future needs, they considered education, open space and amenities when choosing a location to build their home.

The couple are looking forward to the parks and playgrounds, as well as the convenient location of Carmichael College, which sits adjacent to the community.

“We love that Kinma Valley is going to be an outdoorsy community surrounded by nature, and that there will be plenty of open space. It’s somewhere for our little boy Theo to grow and play, and we will be sending him to school at Carmichael College just down the road," Naomi said. 

“We like that there will also be more major shopping and dining destinations nearby in Morayfield and the greater area that we can pop to as well, and then come home to our peaceful neighbourhood.”

Building and designing their dream home

No strangers to the homebuilding process, Naomi and Craig and looking forward to customising their spacious home design to suit their lifestyle now and in the future. They have also considered how to maximise their land with a two-storey home design, to create an entertainer’s delight.

“We have built a single-storey home previously, and this time we are going to be building a double storey home. We’re both originally from the UK, so we’re very familiar with double storey homes and it’s what we have grown up with.” Naomi said.

“A double storey design also reduces the footprint of the house, to create more space for the backyard and for entertaining, which is what we want,” Craig said. “In our current rental there is really no backyard, so it’s very important to us and we’re looking forward to designing what we want. We want more space - we like living in a modern home and we like quality finishings. We looked for a good-sized block at Kinma Valley, which we’re very happy to have secured."
