Todd & Penny’s Newport 275

Todd and Penny decided there’s never been a better time to make a sea change!

The couple originally made the move from the south coast of NSW to Gippsland, Victoria in 2017. “We really enjoyed the tree change although we found we missed the coastal lifestyle… so, we began looking for a coastal area that ticked all our boxes.” Penny explains.

Third time is a charm

Building a home isn’t novel to this couple as this is their third time. “We have found building is the only way you get what you want in in a home.” Says Todd.

Why Fairhaven?

The pair visited the Fairhaven display homes and liked the flexibility with the plans and the transparency with the pricing.

“We chose Fairhaven due to an amazing sales consultant who assisted us to modify the floorplan plus the inclusions of the Bridgewater range.” Explained Penny.

Let’s Compare inclusions!

Fairhaven offers the same great quality as bigger builders. In fact, we include more as standard inclusions, saving you more in the long run. Including the following a Colorbond® roof, choice of facades, up to a H1 slab and 2m concrete piers, flyscreens, flooring, reconstituted stone, 900mm appliances and much more.

The search

In between Covid lockdowns the pair discovered Armstrong Creek between Barwon Heads and Geelong. They initially were on the search for a single storey home. “Once we purchased our block, we realised we needed to build a double storey home to utilise the land better.”

Newport 275

The couple fell in love with the Newport 275 and felt it ticked all the boxes as it suited their budget, block, and needs.
The Newport 275 offers four Bedrooms, two Bathrooms and two Living areas. All Bedrooms are located upstairs, downstairs features an open plan Kitchen, Meals and Family space with optional Covered Outdoor Area.

MyHaven Studio

“The myHAVEN selection process was a breeze” says Penny.

The Fairhaven myHAVEN Selection Studio is a one-stop showroom for you to see, touch and choose your Kitchen appliances, vanities, tapware, flooring, doors, tiles, benchtops, and surfaces.

“The Interior Designer made the process seamless by making suggestions with the selection of colours and finishes.”

The build

“The progress was constant with great communication and support from both our Customer Relations Officer (CRO) and the Site Supervisor.” Todd explained.


Better than expected

“Would we build with Fairhaven again? Yes we would. The house turned out to  be even better than expected and so worth the wait”.

A special thank you to our New Home Sales Consultant in Geelong, Site Supervisor and CRO. “You all helped us to create our beautiful new home.”
