There were a few key points that we were looking for in our new home.
· Standard and bonus inclusions
· Downstairs bathroom, large study, good sized kitchen
· Drive through garage
· Four large bedrooms
· Rooms we were actually going to use (e.g. no need for formal living or dining)
· Alfresco with provision for second kitchen
Few simple requirements we thought, however turn out to be almost impossible to find! After numerous visits to display villages all around Sydney, we realised that our favourite homes would be between Wisdom and Masterton. In particular we were really happy with the inclusions that Wisdom homes were offering for a small price. The homes we liked were the Aspiration and the Impression. That is until we made a visit to Oran Park and saw the Manhattan. Give us 36 squares, no extra ensuites, downstairs bathroom and perfect! We really liked the layout and modern styling including the sunken home theatre room. The sales reps at The Ponds Display Village for Wisdom Homes were very helpful, as we bugged them with hundreds of questions and ideas. In the end it was a very tough choice between the Impression and Manhattan but we made up our minds and decided on the Manhattan 36 at last. So $700 was paid to draw up a tender and the waiting game began.
