Finding Your Perfect Home Site at The Junction

Let’s face it, when you’re looking to build your dream home, one block of land looks pretty similar to the next. After all, it’s the home that makes the difference, right?

Well, not entirely. Of course, the layout of your home is critical, but if you want the best possible outcome for your family’s lifestyle there are a few things to consider when you’re looking to purchase the land, too.

Perhaps the best way to think about it is to decide what’s most important to you and your family. Here are five common thought starters…

Being close to nature

The whole family will enjoy the wetlands and the future park and playground that will be at the heart of The Junction. If being close to nature appeals to you, a lot that directly fronts one of these amenities might be perfect. Of course, the acclaimed Cranbourne Royal Botanic Gardens are right next door so nature will never be far away, whichever lot you choose.

Space for a yard and garden

The Junction offers a variety of lots up to 1,261m2. With that much land, you can build your castle and have ample space for a game of backyard cricket! But you don’t necessarily need that size block to have a great backyard. With a clever floorplan you might get away with something more modest – just make sure you talk to a builder before signing on the dotted line.

Easy access to childcare and schools

You could push a pram to the future childcare centre (on the corner of Bandicoot Boulevard and Craig Road) from virtually anywhere within The Junction. And there are so many primary and secondary schools nearby, like Casey Grammar, it really doesn’t matter which lot you choose – the daily school run will be a snap.

Close to shops and amenities

At The Junction, you’re five minutes away from the enormous selection of specialty retailers to be found at Cranbourne Park shopping centre, as well as the train station and restaurants and everything else that Cranbourne has to offer. For added convenience, the future Coles and shopping village only 1.5km away will make the weekly grocery shop or nipping out for emergency supplies a breeze.

Sport and recreation options

At 500m the Junction Village Recreation Reserve is a quick jog away. Casey Fields is just 4km further on, and Settlers Run Golf & Country Club will be your course of choice for a round. Add to all that the $7.8 million sporting complex being built right next door in Botanic Ridge, and there’s no reason to be unfit at The Junction!

These 5 key lifestyle considerations are important to most people in varying degrees. In addition, there will be other things unique to you and your family that you must consider: distance to work, places of worship, specific amenities (such as horse riding), family and friends, and, of course, affordability.
