Aaron and Sarah Anstis from Hotondo Homes in Ocean Grove are celebrating after winning the prestigious National Display Home of the Year Award at Hotondo Homes’ night of nights.

Their winning home, the Marcoola 245, demonstrates exceptional craftsmanship and captures the essence of modern family living.

“We are so happy and grateful to have won this award. It reflects our genuine desire to create beautiful, quality homes,” Aaron said.

“Our entire team has made this home what it is and the feedback from all who have been able to visit has been brilliant,” Sarah added.

The contemporary single storey design offers a functional family-friendly layout, complete with two spacious living areas, four bedrooms and a double garage.

“The open-plan living space, with a separate breakout area for the kids really is a winner,” Aaron said.

“This particular display home takes it even further with its long, raking ceiling, providing lots of natural light and height.”

“Walking in, clients get an immediate sense of space and relaxation from the soft beachy tones. Many people also comment on the quality finish of the home,” Sarah added.

The home was judged on a number of criteria and demonstrated quality workmanship, impeccable presentation and design and an understanding of the local market.

The award win comes after the business and industry as a whole has faced a number of unprecedented challenges, including the widespread shortage of materials during the building boom and ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are proud that we committed to this home as well as our Acacia display home at a time of great uncertainty,” Aaron said.

“We are so proud of our entire team for getting the home to site, constructed and finished to the highest standard under some very testing conditions.”

Aaron and Sarah have helped families build their dream home across the Bellarine Peninsula for more than 10 years.

Established in 1979, Hotondo Homes has more than 50 new home builders situated in all parts of Australia.

The award-winning home is situated in Villawood’s Armstrong display village at 2 Freedom Drive, Mount Duneed.

Their stunning Acacia 261 is located next door, offering a stylish four-bedroom double storey home that will suit families at every stage.
