CONSTRUCTION work has already started on a $1.7 million Hamptons-style summer house on an upcoming retirement resort.
The Toowoomba branch of Hutchinson Builders turned the first ground at the key piece of infrastructure in Pradella Property Ventures’ $71 million Seachange Hampton St in the city’s western suburbs dubbed “the Hamptons in Harristown”, PPV CEO Phillip Goodman said the wooden summer house would be a centrepiece structure for the 162 dwellings on the massive new estate
“For this sort of project, you have to create something that has a sense of place,” he said.
“We have to find something that is quintessential Toowoomba and brings value to Toowoomba.
“I think this particular building will be iconic in that area.
Once finished, the summer house will feature a tennis court, fire pit, swimming pool, barbecue facilities and outdoor decking.
Hutchinson team leader Shaun Spry said it was an uncommon build for the workers.
“The style and aesthetics with this project are a little bit of a rarity in this day and age, and we’re excited to be part of the build process to deliver a quality turn-key product,” he said.
