MCDONALD JONES CREATES A QUEENSLAND CROWD PLEASER

BEFORE building the perfect family home, one must first understand the market.

This remains one of McDonald Jones Homes' (MJH) mantras as the NSW-based builder continues to make its mark in Queensland. 

While MJH might be a newcomer to the state, it has wasted no time in pleasing the crowd with new designs to suit the complete variety of land blocks and homeowners' needs.

These new designs include the Oasis 35, a home which has quickly become MJH's bestseller throughout the state and earned the prestigious President's Award for 2016.

Queensland manager for sales at MJH  Vincent Klein says the Oasis 35 based at Rochedale is one of MJH's most versatile projects, inspired by feedback from both clients and staff.

"We took a good look at the Queensland market before we established here, and we did a number of surveys here for what people wanted to see in a house," says Vincent.

"The Oasis was designed to formulate the results from those findings."

Vincent says the four-bed, two-bath and dual-style living floorplan with the master bedroom connected to an outdoor alfresco was the ideal starting point for the Oasis.

From there, the 313m2 design provides a home theatre, children's activities area and study nook alongside generous living and dining spaces.

"One of the things that Queenslanders in particular love about the Oasis is the master room which walks out onto the alfresco area," says Vincent.

"There's also very little wasted space within the home, and I think it's that level of practicality which separates our designs from others."

Beyond the bricks and mortar, Vincent believes one of the best features of any MJH home, including the Oasis, is the way that it captures the essence of true Queensland living.

MJH has entered three other projects from the Rochedale display village into the awards this year, including the affordable double-storey Barossa 38 - a home ideally suited to the budding family.

MJH has also taken out the 2016 Display Home $251,000-$300,000 award for its Esperance display, a grande family home which embodies all the quality architectural features and elements of acreage-style living. 

The company currently has a number of homes on display at villages in North Harbour, Yarrabilba, Rochedale and Upper Coomera, and at Bells Reach on the Sunshine Coast.
