Case Study: the Derwent design

Classic; timeless beauty; nostalgic country style – all of these phrases aptly describe this delightful Hensley Park Home.


Set at the foot of the You Yang ranges north-west of Geelong, this Derwent design does complete justice to the rustic farm setting, blending a soft colour palette with gentle elegance.

The large country kitchen, complete with island bench, features stylish black handles and decorative cabinet fronts, and is sure to be the envy of any entertainer. The Derwent kitchen

Beside it, the well-lit, open-plan living area sets the tone for a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere. Take a look at the classic stone chimney and fire place and imagine yourself tucked up in an armchair, hot chocolate in hand, by the fire on that cold winter’s evening…

Denise, our very happy customer, could not be more delighted with her new home:

“It was quite daunting to build a house to begin with, regardless of who builds it.

The answer to my concern was the comfortable and passionate attitude Lester had towards both the company and the details. We found Lester a pleasure to deal with and if it had not been for his passion about the company, I would still be procrastinating. In all honesty, we were just looking at Hensley Park homes out of interest, after not being satisfied with the local display homes on offer. If he had not been so approachable and helpful, I would have opted not to build at all.

It is a great concept and an even better quality product. I cannot express how much I love my new house, and the effort the team has put in to making it my dream home. As you may be able to tell, I cannot thank Lester enough for all of his help in all aspects from planning to colour choices. Everyone who sees it is as impressed as I am with the quality and design.”
